I am the current owner of a 4 month old male Malinois puppy from Mason's Kennels in
Blue Mountain, MS. This was my first experience in dealing with a breeder online & first
time owning a Mal. In both cases I couldn't be happier with my decision. Let me start by
telling you a few things that pop in my head when I think of Bill Mason....honest,
hardworking, trustworthy, dedicated, family man...He truly is just a great person who loves
what he does and he truly loves his dogs and takes great pride & care in each and every
litter. He absolutely stands out from other breeders in my mind for his knowledge of the
breed,his training knowledge & just how easy he is to talk to. I was a bit leary about finding
a dog from an online breeder but from the first time I spoke with Bill he quickly put my
mind at ease. He is dedicated to his dogs and their breeding and their litters. He kept me
informed of the puppies progress every step with e-mails, phone calls and pictures...and
to do this for every of the prospective puppy owners is a lot of work to say the least! My
puppy was from a litter of 10 gorgeous healthy pups. I cannot go anywhere with him from
the time I got him at 8 weeks old till now without people doing double takes and stopping
me to ask what kind of "gorgeous creature" is that? He excels in everything he has done
so far for such a young guy! He is a solid, strong, healthy puppy that has drive out of this
world and continues to shock and amaze people with how attentive, focused and what a
quick study he is. I already know that whatever I choose to do with this puppy in the future
whether it be protection, tracking, sport...he will be at the top of his class. I would
absolutely recommend Bill & his kennels to anyone I know that is interested in owning a
Malinois, learning more about the breed or for training. He will always be upfront and
honest and answer any questions you may have.
You will be in the best of hands with Mason's Kennels.

I went to Blue Mountain, Ms to look at some working Malinios. I wasn't going down
there to buy anything, just to look around. I was very impressed with the
professional trainers I met and mostly the dogs they were working. Luckily for me
they had one pup left.I spent about 3 hours visiting and working dogs and they
helped me work my amstaff. I bought a female pup from them. I expected a little bit of
shyness from her when I brought her to our home, but I just haven't seen it yet. Last
night she slept in a crate at the foot of our bed, no crying nothing just a very
confident relaxed puppy with drive out of this world
Sire: Heartland's Mason Dam: Mason's Katie Owner:
John from NH here, I got one of the female puppies from Mason and Mason's Kate litter. I
just wanted to give you an update an thank you for such a great puppy, I just could not be
more pleased. I named her Mia and she just completed puppy obedience with honors.
She is extremely alert and aware with a strong desire to please. She is praised by the vet
as being very healthy, nearly 40 lbs at almost 4 months (38 right now) and every where we
go she gets compliments on her temperament and behavior for such a young puppy. She
is well socialized with people children and dogs without any problems. I attached a few
pictures of her playing in the snow, she absolutely loves it and just doesn't quit, great
drive. Thanks again, John
Hannah got off the plane on Jan. 27th and effectively "owned" me by the 28th. This puppy
knew what a heel was at eight weeks; there was no need to teach her--it is ingrained in her. I
have never had a more loyal dog--and we have had a few over the course of our lifetimes.
This is no ordinary dog we have here. She is extremely focused, and without having gone to
"kindergarten" yet, knows pretty much all the basic training commands, right on down to a
two-minute "down-stay". We put a pile of her toys in front of her and make a game out of "go
get" the right one, by name. Hannah can consistently pick out by name-- correctly--at least ten
toys, come and drop. She was housetrained in three days, at eight weeks. Lead and crate-
trained within the same week,. At 13 weeks, she is now attempting to open doorknobs on her
own, brings me her leash--and is meeting the mail carrier at the box and bringing in the mail
with a soft mouth. We also don't get many possums down here near Fort Lauderdale, but one
one of our late night before-bedtime potty runs, she spotted one. About six hours later, when
she went out for her first morning run--she zoned in on the same track that possum had been
on. She has a hell of a nose.
Hannah has the nose for scent work, the drive and persistence for work in general, the heart
to be a therapy dog., the physical acumen for agility. She has the intelligence to wow me by
what she obviously has potential for every single moment we've had with her. She's going to
school at four months, so we don't know where she'll best excel yet--and what she'll love the
most---but we know one thing. She'll kick everyone else's butt at go to the head of the class.
We love her to death, and could not ask for a better dog--in absolutely every way.
Thanks so much!

HI BILL AND FAMILY JUST THOUGHT I WOULD SEND SOME PIC'S OF THE MALINOIS GALS. IN THE
SEARCH AND RESCUE WORLD I LIVE IN I COULD NOT ASK FOR A BETTER BREED OR A BETTER
BREEDER. I HAVE TRAINED IN SAR WORK FOR MORE THAN 7 YEARS, AFTER TRAINING MY
FIRST SAR DOG I FELT LIKE I WAS MISSING SOMETHING. COULD NOT PUT MY FINGER ON IT, I
WAS SO FOCUSED ON MY WORK THAT I CRAVED FOR A STRONGER WORKING PARTNER,
THAT'S WHEN I STARTED LOOKING AT DIFFERENT BREEDS. I LOOKED AT GSD, LAB'S,
GOLDENS AND A FEW OTHER BREEDS THAT ARE COMMON IN SAR WORK. BUT THE BELGIAN
BREED CAUGHT MY EYE. SO I RESEARCHED THIS BREED, MUCH TO MY SURPRISE THIS BREED
HAD EVERYTHING I WAS LOOKING FOR. I FOUND MASON'S KENNEL ON THE WEB SITE AND
DECIDED TO CHECK HIM OUT. I HAVE TO SAY HIM AND HIS FAMILY ARE GREAT PEOPLE. THEY
HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE, THEY ARE DOWN TO EARTH AND BILL'S GOAL IS TO BREED THE BEST
OF THE BEST. I DID PURCHASE A FEMALE PUP FROM HIM. SHE WENT ON TO BE AN AKC
CONFIRMATION CHAMPION WITHIN 18 MONTHS, SHE ALSO IS A SAR K-9 PARTNER. NEEDLESS
TO SAY SHE LIVES WITH HER HANDLER THAT LOVES HER. SO I PURCHASED ANOTHER FEMALE
PUP FROM THE SAME PARENTS I NAMED HER TUNDRA. MASON'S TUNDRA IS A VERY STRONG
GAL, HER WORK ETHIC IS NON-STOP. I STARTED HER IN TRACKING/MAN TRAILING. WITHIN 12
MONTHS SHE PASSED HER CERTIFICATION WITH NNDDA. THEN WENT ON 6 MONTHS LATER
PASSED HER CERT. WITH NOCDS. SHE WAS THE ONLY K-9 TO PASS AT THIS SAR SEMINAR IN
MANTRAILING. SHE IS JUST A NATURAL. SHE CAN ACE A 14 HOUR OLD TRAIL WITHOUT A
PROBLEM. I COULD NOT ASK FOR A BETTER K-9 PARTNER. HAD HER HIPS OFA, SHE RATED
GOOD. MASON'S ROSA, WELL SHE WENT OFF TO THE AKC CONFIRMATION SHOW FOR ABOUT
9 MONTHS. SHE DID NOT DO AS WELL AS WE THOUGHT SHE WOULD SO I GOT HER BACK AT
ABOUT 18 MONTHS OF AGE. AFTER TRYING TO DECIDE WHAT JOB SHE NEEDED I STARTED
WITH HELP OF A GOOD FRIEND TO DO HRD (HUMAN REMAINS DETECTION) OR CADAVER.
AFTER 6 MONTHS OF TRAINING THIS GIRL SHE SOLVED HER FIRST CASE AND WITHIN A WEEK
LATER HELPED IN SOLVING ANOTHER CASE. SHE FINDS HER SOURCE "DOWNS" THEN WILL
TOUCH WITH FRONT PAW, ALL THIS FOR JUST A TENNIS BALL. SHE ALSO IS A VERY STRONG
WORKING GIRL. SHE HAS GREAT BALL AND HUNT DRIVE. I DID HAVE HER HIPS/ELBOWS OFA
THEY CAME BACK AS GOOD/NORMAL. MASON'S LAKOTA, WELL CAN'T SAY ENOUGH ABOUT
THIS LITTLE GIRL. SHE IS NOW 15 MONTHS OLD. I STARTED HER ON HRD OR CADAVER AT 8
WEEKS OLD. SHE HAS HAD IT MASTERED FROM DAY ONE. SHE HAS GREAT BALL AND HUNT
DRIVE. SHE IS ONLY ABOUT 40 LBS WHICH IS GREAT FOR HER TYPE OF WORK, SHE CAN FIT IN
SMALL PLACES. LOVES WATER SO THAT MADE IT EASY FOR US TO WORK NOT ONLY LAND
CADAVER BUT WATER CADAVER AS WELL. SHE HAS A NATURAL INDICATION WHEN SHE FINDS
HER SOURCE, SHE WILL FREEZE THEN DOWN AND GIVE THE STARE AS YOU CAN SEE IN HER
PIC'S. SHE IS SO DEVOTED TO HER WORK. SHE IS THE K-9 PARTNER I WOULD WATCH THAT
OTHER HANLDERS HAD AND WOULD DREAM ABOUT HAVING ONE DAY. THIS LITTLE GIRL HAS
ALSO SOLVED HER FIRST CASE IN FEB 2007 AND A WEEK LATER HELPED IN SOLVING ANOTHER
CASE. I HAVE TO MENTION THE 2 CASES THAT BOTH MY HRD MALINOIS GALS WORKED. FIRST
COLD CASE WAS A PERSON BEEN MISSING FOR 3 YEARS. NOBODY HAD A CLUE TO WHAT
HAPPENED TO THIS PERSON. WELL CASE HAD BEEN REOPENED I GOT CALLED IN WITH K-9
PARTNERS TO SEARCH AN AREA SHORE LINE AT A LAKE. LAKOTA WORKED IT FIRST AND
COVERED MOST OF THE 5 ACRE AREA, WITHIN 5 MIN GAVE ME HER INDICATION ABOUT 12 INCH
FROM SHORE LINE. WE FINISHED THE LAND AREA AND K-9 THEN WENT BACK TO THE SAME
AREA GAVE ANOTHER INDICATION ABOUT 8 INCH DEEP IN THE WATER. I THEN TOOK OUT
ROSA,IT WAS ALMOST THE SAME PATTERN. I EVEN LEFT THE AREA CAME IN FROM ANOTHER
ANGLE, ROSA STILL IN THE SAME AREA IN THE WATER GAVE HER INDICATION. SHE EVEN SLAP
THE WATER WITH HER PAW. AFTER 2 DAYS OF THE GROUND SEARCH TEAM COVERING THE
AREA THEY SENT DIVERS IN THE LAKE. THEY DID LOCATE THE MISSING PERSON STILL STRAP
IN HIS SEATBELT IN THE VEHICLE IN THE LAKE. SECOND CASE WAS PERSON MISSING FOR 20
YEARS, THIS CASE IS STILL UNDER CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION SO I CAN NOT MENTION DETAILS
BUT BOTH MAL GALS GAVE ME A POSITIVE INDICATION ON THE LOCATION OF THE REMAINS.
JOB WELL DONE. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH MONEY THAT COULD BUY THESE MALINOIS GALS, BUT
I WILL SAY THAT IF I EVER LOSE ONE I WOULD NOT HESITATE TO CALL BILL AND LET HIM PICK
OUT ANOTHER WORKING MALINOIS GAL FOR ME.

"I have been in K9 SAR for 7 years and my original dog was getting ready to retire. I researched many
breeds to decide on my next dog. I met a bomb dog for the THP who was a mal and was very
impressed and decided to go with that breed. I called and spoke to Bill and he was excellent,
answering all of my questions and listening to what type of dog I was looking for based on the SAR
requirements. He emailed me photos of two puppes and I chose Maggie. >From the very start she
has been beyond exceptional. Everything I have asked her to do she has learned with speed and
precision. I am using her to do air scent disaster SAR work. We recently returned from the FEMA K9
Search Specialist course at the TEEX Disaster City. Maggie was 10 months old and performed
excellent. During an exercise towards the end of the week she located two victims in a 5,000 square
foot rubble pile with a robust bark alert in under 10 minutes. Her prey drive and search capabilities
have proven outstanding to date. Her first SAR mission occurred in late March 2007 where she
alerted in and out of the water at a lake and the victim was located, still alive, less than 50 yards
away hiding underneath a tree in the water. At home she is extremely sociable, working well with all
size and breeds of dogs and is great with children. If left alone she will climb to the top of the
highest obstacle outside or in the house. On the agility course I let her out of the truck and she
climbs on everything on her own, seeking out the higher and more mobile elements. I give Bill
Mason the highest recommendations because the dog that he selects for you if you cannot be there
in person will be tailor fit to your needs. A co-worker also purchased a puppy from Bill that is now 4
months old and is well on his way to preparing for SAR work. These are outstanding working dogs.
Thank you! God bless, Melissa

Mason’s Sage & Mason’s Eve
Owner: Morgan Pierce
When I made the decision to get back into dog training I knew that I wanted
a jump start into it. So after much research and deliberation I decided to
attend the Tom Rose School. With the high demands of this school I knew I
would need a great dog to get me through it. After talking to many breeders
I purchased my first Malinois from Bill Mason in December of 2006.
In four months, at the ripe age of 7 months, Mason’s Sage successfully
completed training and testing for AKC Agility, Novice and Open. She also
tested for the BH, Schutzhund I (OB), Schutzhund II (OB), narcotics, and
protection (French Ring). With the demands of school and the age
restrictions on the various competitions she is being trained for, she hasn’t
competed yet but she is completely prepared to compete and win in AKC and
Schutzhund, and soon French Ring. But wait, there’s more! I purchased a second puppy
from Bill Mason to fulfill my remaining requirements at the school, and also because I
completely and totally fell in love with Bill Mason’s Malinois! I had a
short amount of time to prepare Mason’s Eve, but she rose to the occasion
and completed an AKC Novice routine, as well as a Schutzhund I track, and
and physically capable of handling anything you can throw at them, look no further than
Mason’s Kennels. You won’t be disappointed!Mason’s Kennels. You won’t be disappointed!

We are the owners of Weiland, an eleven month old Malinois from Mason's Kennels, and we
couldn't be more delighted with our "little puppy"! He is our first dog, and obviously our first
Malinois, and he's caused us to fall in love with the breed. Loving, loyal, intelligent, energetic
and with a fantastic personality, Weiland has been very special to us from the moment we laid
eyes on him. Our experience with Mason's Kennels has been wonderful; we received
numerous photos of the pups and we felt that care was taken in choosing which puppy would
be ours. Bill Mason put a lot of effort into getting Weiland from Mississippi to Seattle, making
sure Weiland was ready to fly a long distance, and driving through the night from his home to
Memphis airport to put Weiland on an early flight up to Seattle. Weiland is a great dog. He
runs with me every morning and appears to absolutely love it. Often, people will stop me in the
street and tell me how good looking he is; most people tend to use the word "handsome"!
We're constantly amazed and delighted by his vigilance, his love for us and his interest in his
surroundings. On his first day at our house, aged 7 weeks, he barked at our stereo speakers
when we turned on the television! However, after a quick investigation of the room, he decided
that the noise coming from the speakers was no problem and went back to playing with his
new toys. Needless to say, we were incredibly impressed. He is currently sleeping next to me
on the sofa after a long day of running, playing with numerous toys, behaving well for cookies,
and riding in the car (which is, apparently, incredibly exciting!). Soon, we'll be ready to get
another dog and we'll definitely want another Mal from Mason's Kennels. We're so pleased we
came across Bill Mason and his dogs, as our experience has been 100% wonderful.

Mason's Maggie search the debris following the tornado which hit Castalian Springs, Tenn. She led
them to the 11 month old boy who was still alive!!!!
My passion is training great working dogs in the competitive dog sport called Schutzhund. In
my search for a young competition prospect I contacted my friend Bill Mason. With Bill’s help I
acquired Mason’s Nero, a young, over the top, dominant male Malinois from Mason’s Kennels.
Like many of Mason’s Malinois can be, Nero was more dog than his original owners were
prepared to handle. Although his temperament is very sound, he had learned how to assert
his dominance and was becoming unmanageable in his original home. Nero requires an
experienced trainer / handler to keep his life busy and his environment structured. If you are
considering a Malinois from Mason’s Kennels and do not have experience with this breed, I
strongly encourage you to seek assistance from a competent trainer who knows Malinois.
Nero was barely 9 months old when we began training. Nero has VERY extreme ball, hunt,
and food drive, which is instrumental to his training successes. Additionally, Nero has very
high active aggression, which is clearly exhibited in the protection phase of Schutzhund and
makes him a top competition prospect. Nero is 19 months old at the time of this writing. In the
10 months that I have owned Nero we have accomplished the following:
Trained K9Dogworks Demonstration Dog. Achieved Competition Level Schutzhund
Obedience. Completed Dan Reiter’s Passive Alert Narcotics Detection Seminar.
Participated in the SMSPC U.S.A. Helper Certification Seminar.
Earned the Begleithunde “BH” Schutzhund Title. Earned SchH 1 - Schutzhund 1 Working Title.
Earned SchH 2 - Schutzhund 2 Working Title. Is in training now for SchH 3 competition level
Schutzhund trial work. I am looking forward to a long and successful competition career with
Nero. I also purchased two more Malinois puppies from Bill Mason, both are now in training for
Schutzhund and are great prospects. I can assure you that if you are looking for an
exceptional working dog, Bill Mason understands your needs and is producing it through his
breeding program. Good Luck!

I just want to take a few minutes and write you about a pup I purchased from
you 2 years ago (Mason's Jinx). I have nothing but good things to say about
Jinx. He has turn out to be an outstanding police dog. I have had nothing but
great comments about his drive. He has an incredible hunt, and ball drive. I
have seen him on more than one occasion hunt or run himself to the point of
exhaustion and have to be made to lay down before he collapsed. Jinx is very
social dog, but has a very serious no nonsense side to him too. Jinx has been
working the road with me for almost a full year now. He was certified last
November when he was about a year and half old. He was from the Mason /
Katie litter June of 2007. Sorry it took so long to give you an update, but
better late then never. Truly Grateful, Walter Vinson
Hi Bill, I purchased one of your puppies back in January and I have to say this is one of
the best dogs I have owned. Always full of energy unless you really drain her and
always shows a caring, fun and fantastic personality. You were spot on when you said
she has a lot of personality and drive, and let me tell you, she has lots of both. Overall I
am very pleased with this dog and would with out hesitation buy another one of your
puppies in the future. I always tell people who ask about her about this breed and you
and where I got her from and that is was worth every bit. I also always mention how
good she is with other animals, people to include kids. Attached is a picture of her,
Thanks again, Nate Ward

Just wanted to let you know that Dream got her BH last weekend and yes we could have
had it @ 15 months but decided to wait for our club to have a trail again! She is such a
great all around dog. She does great in protection but then when we leave the field she is
such a sweet easy dog. The pictures are of Dream the Judge and myself getting our
trophies. She is such a joy and I am so happy to have her as a part of my life.
Thanks, Sandy Hayes and Dream Catcher

I'd like to express my gratitude for Mason's Neco. He has performed beyond my expectations. He is a dual purpose dog,
and very good at what he does. Neco excels in apprehension, drugs, area search, article search and obedience. I could
not have gotten a better dog. He shows no fear and is strong willed with good nerves. I plan on purchasing another puppy,
and I will be purchasing it from you. Nobody could ask for a better line of Belgian Malinois, their performance is
outstanding. During training I was asked by the trainer to demonstrate Neco's abilities from the age of 5 months til present
day as a fine example of a well trained dog. Neco never ceases to amaze me with his intelligence and instinct. For
example, one night he tracked a suspect and located him hiding in a tree, I was truly amazed and proud of him. I couldn't
ask for a better dog and friend.
Thank you again and I will definitely recommend your kennel each and every time someone talks about purchasing a good
Belgian Malinois. I have attached a few photos of Neco at 16 months old for you to enjoy.

I bought Shock from you on my way to TRS last January and I just wanted to thank you for such an amazing working
dog. She had more drive than my entire class and she was the only dog biting the sleeve by the time we left St Louis.
Out of the 19 people in my class, we were one of 7 that graduated. She has done everything I've thrown at her
amazingly and I couldn't ask for a better mal. A friend of mine from school saw her and recently bought a pup from you,
and I apologize for taking so long to update you on Shock. We are currently training for PSA and Schutzhund, but I
pretty much take her everywhere with me. She is my personal salesman as far as it goes to selling training packages.
Shes a goof but when we get to working she's the real deal just like you said she'd be. Attached is a picture of her at
about 6 months old that i figure you'd appreciate haha.
I hope everything is going well with you guys and again thanks for the awesome dog!
Hello Bill – If you might not remember me my fiancée Tom and I bought a female puppy from you right before
thanksgiving last year. We came to see the puppies and then after a lot of thought we decided to get one and named
her Kamila. I remember you making sure to tell us that this puppy was nothing like a poodle and were very honest and
clear with us. Well, now 5 months later I wanted to contact you to tell you that Kamila is and has been THE BEST dog I
have ever owned and seen. She is very hyper…yes…BUT she is not only sooooooo pretty but has been amazing with
us and my daughter. She is incredibly smart and sweet and scary all at the same time. I could really keep going on and
on about her but I’m not going to.
So, I just wanted to tell you THANK YOU and we are very very HAPPY we got Kamila.

Hi Mr. Mason!
I recently purchased a female pup from your Izar/Molly litter and I wanted to let you know how well she is doing. I
won't go in to too much detail but we are training Mason's Kaiya in Dutch and preparing for k9 protection
training/mondio ring. Kaiya is successfully performing sit,down,back to sit, fetch,out, and speaking and successfully
completed potty training all by 4 months age. Her drives are coming through stronger and stronger each day. Thank
you for providing me and my family with such an excellent specimen. I will continue to be in touch. I am visiting your
site continually and will eventually be contacting you for another female pup one day as long as you permit that.
Kaiyas favorite hobbies include chasing tweety birds, playing in the pool, and playing with our doberman whom are
becoming excellent friends. Thank you thank you thank you for our newest family
member, we absolutely love her.

Hello Mr Mason
We purchased Rosie from you Summer of 2012 and you shipped her to us in Baltimore Maryland. The day she arrived
we were so amazed with her personality and how pretty she was. You told us you were sending us a hurricane and you
sure did!!!! LOL... She is a huge ball of energy and is always so very happy. She is so smart and was very easy to
train and house break. We have 2 small children ages 6 and 4 and Rosie is very protective of her human siblings. Of
course she tries to herd them and loves to steal their food when they are not looking. She has grown so much from
that first day and is now over 70 lbs ...I have submitted 4 photos along with this note to show you how much this pretty
girl has grown!! We get so many compliments on what a beautiful dog she is....We have recommended you to many
people looking for a Mal.
Thank you for Rosie

I purchased a puppy from you July 2012 while my husband was in Afghanistan. I just wanted to let you know that she is
pretty amazing. You repeatedly asked me before I left if I knew what I was getting myself into, and No, I did not. You
never know until you try! My husband and I have decided we'd never have another breed of dog. Since he came home
in September 2012, he's been training her for protection. I attached a couple of videos, but they just don't do her justice,
especially indoors. She is a monster when it comes to a stranger coming in her house. :) She is the absolute smartest
and most loyal dog we've ever had. Thank you so much!!
Got some good shots of Ava at training today!
Just thought I'd share :) Hope you like them and all is well!
Thanks so much for 2 kick a@@ dogs!
We are the Dallas area family who drove to Mississippi to adopt the female puppy in January 2013. I just wanted to send you
an email to let you know that Mason's Chimay is a wonderful dog! We are grateful that you let us know upfront about all the
potential puppy issues that we could have with a Malinois. Having this knowledge helped us be patient and work with her.
Although we primarily adopted the dog for my husband, my daughter and I have been working intensely with her. We have had
her enrolled in obedience training with us for 12 weeks and today she passed the AKC Canine Good Citizen test. Later in May
we will start Agility and Competitive Obedience training and from there we think the sky is the limit with this dog. She is super
smart and sweet and cannot wait to see what the future holds for her and our entire family.
And by the way, we are always getting compliments on how beautiful she is. Thanks again for breeding such a fabulous Mal.

Hey Mr. Mason,
Just wanted to give you an update on Axel. We are working towards our IPO 1, and axe is responding great to all the extra
work. This guy has a drive like I have never seen before. He is such a well-rounded dog. He constantly surprises us with
his agility, loyalty, intelligence, and drive. We cant thank you enough for all that you do. Here are a few pics from training
last week (attached). Hope all is well! T.J and Jess
Hello Bill I'm Chris Pelton (I bought a puppy from you and picked him up in Seattle Wa on Sept 10) I'm sorry I haven't
sent you pictures of maximus until now, but I will work at sending you more pics of him as well as of his training. Is it at
all possible for you to let me know Maximus's birthday, I need to know for training purposes. Also told you that I would
write a recommendation, well here it is;
To anyone that is considering buying a Malinois I would highly recommend Mason's Kennel. Bill Mason is an
interesting character to talk to and is often willing to share some of his extensive knowledge of dogs as well as
training. I had my doubts at first and wasn't sure it was a good idea to buy a dog from across the country, and from
someone I had never met. Well I couldn't be happier with the deal I made, nor the pup I got. When I came to pick
Maximus up from the air port he came in a nice kennel which had a bag of dog food and a envelope with his
documents taped to it. I was provided a bill of good health from a Vet, as well as his vaccination record, and AKC
As for the pup right off the get go Maximus and I clicked and I found him to be very focused (especially for his age). I
also was impressed that he came potty trained, and even more impressed when I later found out that he had not been
potty trained. Maximus has learned faster then any other dog I have ever trained or been around, and that's saying a
lot. Its not just the fact that I am a good handler....Its his breeding. He is only about 5 1/2 months old and already
knows Sit, stay, down, off, kennel, inside, outside, climb up there (and point), get dressed (make a loop with the leash
and he will put his head through it). Heel, speak, fetch, and a certain word that we use as a command to attack when
doing bite work.
I truly thank and appreciate Masons kennel for everything.
We hope you and your family are doing well. Thought you might like to see a picture of Scout. I think she looks like Izar.
(Izar and Heidi's litter from 04/29/13)
We entered her in an unoffical Ultimate Air Dog Dock Jumping competition a couple of weeks ago and she took 2nd
place in her division with a jump of 17' 4" that qualified her for the finals. Her longest jump in the finals was 16' 10".
We love this dog! She always exceeds our expectations.

Bill, I just wanted to send you a picture of KBar and tell you he is amazing. He turned 1 year old at the end of April. Not sure if you
remember me or not, but he is a “work horse”. He loves to run with me, he heels, tracks, and has excellent obedience and I still
consider him a puppy. He has already done exactly as I wanted, he is a definite deterrent to anyone coming around my house. I
have never seen a dog try and jump an 8 ft fence. He makes my jaw drop when I see him go airborne after a bird or squirrel
running up a tree. He has serious hops. He definitely has his moments when he challenges me more than any other dog that I
have been around, but I love the dog.
Just wanted to tell you how amazing the dog is at only 1 year old.
Here is a picture of him at 8 months.
I just wanted to take a minute and let you know how pleased we are with Sigg. As of last
week we are a nationally certified explosive detection team. He is everything we wanted
and I just wanted to tell you thank you for having such an amazing breeding program to
produce quality working dogs such as Sigg.
Dear Mason Family,
This is a picture of Mason's Riley Redden taken today, at 7 months and 2 days old.

Let me start off by saying thank you Tommy for such a fantastic pup! Ive never met Tommy Mason, owner of Mason's kennels
in person, however, I have had several wonderful telephone conversations and many text messages with him. Tommy is an
honest man that stands behind his word. I'll give you a quick example. I paid Tommy in advance like most everyone does and
told him I wanted a dark faced male pup for protection... well i waited litter after litter, mother nature gave all female pups.
Tommy offered to send me my money back but I said no thank you, I'll wait. Just pick me out what I'm looking for. Finally a litter
arrived with plenty male pups and he did just that. Tommy picked me out an AWESOME PUP!!! And what a Protector he is!...
Apollo is super smart and extremely protective.
Thank you again Tommy
Take care my friend...
God Bless you and your family...

Good morning! Roscoe is doing very well! He's already close to 50lbs.
He gets noticed wherever we go. Highly intelligent and hard working
with Great Drive. A friend of mine and her family are getting a pup from
you on the 26th. She's super excited about him. She's hoping to get a
puppy with a similar temperament. I told her you would pick out a great
puppy for her.

This is Chance. Son of Mojo and Heidi. He is probably the best thing that almost didn't happen
for my family. I thought I wanted a Mal and spoke with lots of breeders. Your dad was the only
one that took the time to explain to me all the pros and cons. I was apprehensive at first and
almost backed out. Only after riding over from Tuscaloosa with my wife and visiting with your
parents and Izar (who by the way made me nervous as a cat) did we decide to get one. The
honesty along with the knowledge and love for the breed shown by Bill was what sold us on
our decision. He just really made us feel comfortable with what we were getting into, and I
really felt that he would have discouraged us or even turned us away if he thought a Mal was
not the dog for us. For that my family will always be grateful.

Tommy, since the moment I have picked up Mr. Hades and I have seen the difference between
you and other Malinois breeders out there. The little, but not so little, fella has been super
confident and very environmentally sound even after a long journey to Canada. We walked
through the airport and he had his leash in his mouth the whole time, he displayed a lot of
confidence considering the completely new environment. On the flight home, he was in the cabin
with me, he was very well behaved and greeted anyone that approached him very gently. We got
home and started working with the rag. He had no issues at all, and Mr. Hades showed a lot of
confidence going after it and keeping it in his possession. Being around Malinois for the past 9
years, I can attest that this is one of the greatest puppies I have come across. Thank you for
providing me exactly what I wanted. I will definitely be getting my next puppy from you. I am sure
Mr. Hades will make you and us proud taking some bad guys down and keeping the family safe!
