      We have an inhouse lab with microscope & centrafuge, I am able to check the puppies stool samples weekly for internal parasites, I am also able to check semen samples prior to breeding and lots more! Our animal hospital is just a mile from our house but it's much easier having a lab right at home!

                  “Before you can really study an animal you must first love it”

                  photo

                  We are breeders who care far more about our dogs than ANYTHING else, our life revolves around their needs and happiness and I am VERY picky about the families/people I choose for one of my babies! We are in the animal health care business being a licensed Veterinarian, Vet Tech. & Canine Behaviorist/trainer, our breeding is not a business but our life’s passion over the last three decades! We love to share our experience with the dogs that have brought so much love & happiness into our lives with others who will appreciate just how special these dogs are!!! They are truly amazing!!!

                  We try to keep the price of puppies just at a mid range level, which is not near as high as some breeders who offer far less quality & support than we do but we just want to set the price at a reasonable amount so that we are able to continue breeding the exceedingly high quality of puppies that we are known for (which is the only way we'd do it), giving them the best of everything, food, supplements, toys, training, our time & LOTS of our love as well as being able to help fund our private rescue program and supporting them all after they go home! Also to be able to enter them in AKC conformation shows when I can, I know the quality of our dogs but I do love showing them off every chance I get JI try to post as many videos of our dogs lives as possible so you can really get a feel for their amazing personalities and just how totally wonderful they are :) Also how much they are loved by us!!! This way if you live far away and are unable to come to our home (we don't have a kennel) visit you are able to get to know us and our dogs through our videos & hundreds of thousands of pictures! I just don't post one or two pictures of our dogs like so many others do since they will have the exact same pictures of dogs up on their website for years & years!  I post whole photo albums of our dogs so you can see them from every angle, every situation and in every season! Just the way I see them and hopefully grow to love them as much as I do!!! I buy puppies too since I will not inbreed our dogs (it's an all too common practice among breeders in general and inbreeding doesn't work any better in dogs than it would with people! They end up with all kinds of shallow gene pool health & temperament issues!) Since I also buy puppies I know what it's like to deal with breeders and the whole process of trying to buy a good puppy, so I try to make it easier as well as a very special and memorable experience for the people who adopt one of our babies.

                  We have such confidence in the quality of our puppies that we guarantee their genetic health for life and guarantee their temperament for 2 years!!!

                           My Dog


                          He is my other eyes that can see above
                          the clouds; my other ears that hear above
                          the winds. He is the part of me that can
                          reach out into the sea.

                          He has told me a thousand times over that
                          I am his reason for being: by the way he
                          rests against my leg; by the way he thumps
                          his tail at my smallest smile; by the way he
                          shows his hurt when I leave without taking him.
                          (I think it makes him sick with worry when he
                          is not along to care for me.)

                          When I am wrong, he is delighted to forgive.
                          When I am angry, he clowns to make me smile.
                          When I am happy, he is joy unbounded.
                          When I am a fool, he ignores it.
                          When I succeed, he brags.
                          Without him, I am only another man. With him,
                          I am all-powerful.
                          He is loyalty itself.
                          He has taught me the meaning of devotion.
                          With him, I know a secret comfort and a
                          private peace. He has brought me understanding
                          where before I was ignorant.
                          His head on my knee can heal my human hurts.
                          His presence by my side is protection against
                          my fears of dark and unknown things.
                          He has promised to wait for me...
                          whenever...wherever--in case I need him.
                          And I expect I will--as I always have.

                          He is just my dog.

                          Older news

                          Note: Izz-A-Bull's sire, BISS Ch. King Kwame was invited back to Westiminster for the 2nd consecutive year where he will be competed with the top Bullmastiffs in the country, he also is in the Book of the top ten Bullmastiffs in the country in print only every 5 years!

                          Kwame competed in Westminster 06 & 07 as well (you can watch the video in the navigation bar), he hadn't even had his 2nd birthday yet! He was born 2-21-04, I had been researching lines for about a year when I found his litter and picked him out for his real "Bull" head (which he got from his dam and his size from his sire who is top of standard), he's got that wide head & wrinkle that I love to maintain in my line, as well as a great laid back personality!

                          Aristocrat's Red Ruby Rag-Doll AKC, CGC, CAR, TDI, BOB

                          Ruby Rag-Doll is retired now, we do NOT rehome, sell or give away our retired dogs, I honestly don't know how other breeders can do that!!! These dogs are our family and will be with us forever!!!

                          Ruby is my baby, VERY intelligent, and just gorgeous!!! She is top of AKC standard in size & has a better resume than I do  She won Best of Breed just 9 months after having a litter of 13 puppies-not bad at all-but I make sure my dogs get lots of exercise and really enjoy walking them-they literally will stop traffic, I've had people stop their cars in the middle of the street to come see the dogs & ask questions about them. Ruby is a great dog & I couldn't imagine life without her! I kept two of her pups from BISS CH. King Kwame of Bayview, they are both turning out beautifully! Izz-A-Bull is the spitting image of her mother.

                          Ruby has the sweetest personality & just loves everyone, she volunteers at a therapy dog & loves helping people, especially kids in anyway she can, TDI (Therapy Dogs International) has a new program where kids that have problems reading are helped tremendously by reading to a therapy dog instead of in front of their class mates, dogs are so patient & forgiving and would never dream of making fun of a child that had problems pronouncing a word unlike some of their class mates!!! It's a wonderful program & I urge anyone with a friendly dog to get involved in the Therapy dog program-dogs bring not only total unconditional love to us, are always there when you need a friend, but there is scientific evidence that proves dogs are good for you! People who own a dog live an average of 10 years longer than those who don't, and they can help in the healing process better than any medications!!! You couldn't ask for a sweeter, more devoted dog than a Bullmastiff-they truly are the best of the best!!! If you've never owned a Bullmastiff before I tell people the closest way to attempt to describe them in words is that another dog will come to you for attention whereas a Bullmastiff will come to you to give YOU attention!!!!

                          That is me by the way (Suzan) in the pictures-so you have a face to put to who your talking to by email

                          Ruby & Annie's dad-Aristocrat's Opie the Red (middle is a water color pencil drawing I did of him)

                          Opie is also top of standard size, 27" and 140 lbs of pure muscle, with a fantastic head set, but his best quality is his personality, he's very mellow & laid back, just a big love bug!

                          Aristocrat's Fawncie Dancer (mom of Ruby & Annie)

                          fawncie Dancer is a beautiful girl, very typy, she's built like a tank but has the movement of a hackney pony-she floats, beautiful movement, she's passed this extrodinary movement to her offspring. She too has a beautiful head (although these aren't her best pictures) Fawncie is 25" & 120 lbs of pure muscle, but this girl can move and move fast!! She is the best mother in the entire world, we have litter reunions & even after pups have been gone for several years she always knows their her kids & it's so great to see the whole family playing happily together in the back yard when we have reunions or just have our puppy people stop by & visit! Which our doors are always open.

                          Aristocrat's Tearloch Onyx-Bull AKC, CKC, DNA, CGC, TDI, CAR

                          Tearloch is ONLY one year old in these pictures (DOB: 5-7-05)

                          Tearloch is a unique & beautiful dog,Tearloch is a really big boy, he weighs a 165 lbs & is on the top of the top of standard size, 27.5" tall, he's starting to loose some of his "puppy fat" and gain muscle, anyone who knows Bullmastiffs knows that the male don't start "bulking-up" until they are over a year old and aren't completely grown  (meaning in bulk) until 4-5 yrs old, they spend their first year growing in height after that it's all bulk, the next years (up to 5 yrs old) are spent growing those huge blocky heads, wide muscular chests, neck & shoulders-so Tearloch isn't even close to being grown-he's got a long way to go YET he is already GORGEOUS!!! And he has the sweetest temperament, he's just a big teddy bear! He comes from a very famous line of Bullmastiffs-his Aunt is ranked #2 bitch in the entire country! Both his parents & almost ALL of his relatives are at least American Champions with many holding both American & International Championship titles. You can see Tearloch's pedigree in the navigation bar of the home page. Tearloch is a rare black brindle, meaning they have so many black stripes they look almost completely black and boy is he ever handsome-and look at that coat-you can almost see yourself in it it's so shiny!!! Tearloch is very athletic, as are all my dogs, they have a huge back yard to run & play in with lots of agility equipt. and toys, they love to play race track & use the hurdles the most.

                          Tearloch will start his showing career this month (Oct. 06) and we hope to have his Championship by the end of the year!

                          NOTE: Tearloch did awsome in his very first show even with Ruby in heat & testosterone coursing through his viens, I figured if he didn't flatten anyone it would be a good day since this boy outweighs me by 65 lbs!! (he thinks he's still just a little guy!) but he took first place, the winners, then best of opposites and even got a point & trophy in his very first show-we are very, very proud of him!!! I ended up showing him myself and I've done very little show handling, he outweighs me by 65 lbs of pure muscle & is taller than I am if he stands up on his hind legs and he's so good I was able to control him & have him act like a perfect gentleman on a shoe string-which is basically all a show lead is 

                          Congrats to my big baby boy in his very first show!!!!

                           

                          Below is a picture of Tearloch's Sire-Ch. Blazin's Tonka Unbreak-a-Bull you can see a picture of his mother Ch. Lawson's Okie by clicking on his dams pedigree in the navigation bar, she is a huge and beautiful red brindle bitch also with the best personality & temperament!!! I will be updating Tearloch's pictures as he grows so check back! To get an indication of what he will look like full grown there is a picture of his father below.

                          Hi, my name is Suzan of Aristocrat Bullmastiffs; I am a trainer, canine behavioral therapist, reproduction specialist, Mem. ADOA, Professional mem. APDT #66535, Reg. AKC/CGC Eval. #8219, TDI Eval.(pend), member CMKC, member PVKC, our dogs are all house dogs, AKC/CGC, CAR, We participate in the AKC voluntary DNA program, I also participate in the continuing Breeders Education Program through AKC as well as attend all the AVMA & AAHAVeterinary Conferences yearly & keep VERY up to date on Canine Reproduction, care of neonates, genetics, and anything & everything I can learn-I've been breeding for 30 years now-I am NOT one of those breeders who reads something on the net & takes it as gospel, I want proof of something & scientific proof before I would change anything I do with my dogs!!!

                          My husband is a licensed and federally accredited Veterinarian with an additional master's degree in parasitology and specializes in orthopedics. He has is own Veterinary practice here in town, Sebasticook Animal Clinic, Jason L. Orr, BS, MS, D.V.M. so we know what we are doing!

                           We do all health screening prior to breeding. Our puppies have champion bloodlines, home raised, very well socialized and early obedience, house breaking & behavioral training done before they go home, also crate trained & litter box trained! We are so confident in our pup�s temperaments that we guarantee both temperament and health for life in writing! Typically breeders say health is guaranteed for one year (which so many issues don't show up until at least 2 years or older since these dogs matures so slowly, males aren't totally full grown until 4-5 years and females until 3-4 years old!) Also they are required by law to only offer a one year health guarantee, since many states have a puppy lemon law. Our pups have wonderful confirmations according to AKC standards. My husband is a licensed Veterinarian & I am also an emergency & surgical vet. Tech. so the pups have everything done right from the time of conception to the time they go home! The puppies are hand whelped, and handled continually from the time they are born. They have a temperature controlled nursery, plenty of visual, brain stimulation (which makes them more easily trained, smarter) they have plenty of sunlight/sunlamps (for Vit. D). they have the best food, vitamins. They all are breast fed (for plenty of antibodies against K-9 diseases) & also supplemented with bottle (so litter is very uniform in size). We are breeders who stand behind our pups for life! We will always answer any questions you might have & we try to make ourselves available for our puppy people (the people who already have one or more of our pups) 24/7 for support in regards to health, training, behavior, any questions you may have! There are NO stupid questions!!! The puppies have been around other dogs, cats, handled frequently by children (when I can round them up in the warmer months since my kids are grown but my grandson who is 12 comes to play with them) & other people; they just naturally love kids, very stable & naturally protective, trustworthy dogs, big blocky, stocky dogs! They are used to many noises I play a CD for them with over 900 different sound effects, so these pups won't be afraid of loud noises or run away during a thunderstorm! I

                          Also start doing my own adaptation of Dr. Batagllia�s exercises to help produce stable puppies (originally intended for raising dogs of war that were uncreative to all the stresses and noises of war). I start these exercises at 2 days old as well as start clipping their nails at 2 days old.

                          Once your application has been approved and our babies have been born you will be given a password so you can watch live video feed of the babies in the nursery so you don't miss any part of their growth processes, it's such a wonderful thing to watch!!! The pups are raised in an enriched environment with many toys, textures, things to climb on, visual stimuli (yes dogs do see in color!) I do temperament testing on the pups and work with any that might be more reserved than the others so that they will all swarm you with kisses and wagging tails upon your visit!!! My goal, beyond producing puppies that are happy, healthy, smart and more easily trained and that live far longer than the typical Bullmastiff, is to get them ready for the real world so they are not afraid when they leave, in fact all of my puppy people report that after a matter of minutes the pups act like they were born and raised in their new home, and that makes me happy to know they are not afraid and adapt easily to changes, that's what I work very hard to do, it also helps me because I'm a basket case when they leave!!! But knowing they aren't afraid and love their new family, then hearing stories of how much love and joy they bring to their new families makes it all the sleepless nights, all the work and trying to stay awake in a nursery with the temp set at 90 degrees (not easy!) and seeing pictures of them (mostly with families with kids) makes me very happy and I do my very best to hold back the tears until after you leave with them!

                           

                          We are now accepting applications for our summer litters so please email for a puppy application, and links to pictures & a link to our You Tube Channel where there are many videos of our dogs so you can see firsthand how spoiled and well cared for they are! As well as any and all other information-if you must call please leave your name & mailing address so I can mail the materials to you since I am rarely available to answer the phone because I take care of my dogs myself, do all the daily grooming, I do all their training and train them so they are all AKC Canine Good Citizen Certified as well as TDI Certified Therapy dogs, I also take the dogs to schools, libraries as part of the reading program of Therapy Dogs Int. as well as to schools to teach children how to behave around dogs, teach them dog body language and how to best care for their own dogs at home, I always bring one or two of my dogs with me when we go to the schools and the dogs are immediately swarmed by kids and love every second of it! We also visit the hospital, mostly the children�s ward and visit as many of the elderly patients as possible or anyone who looks like they need a smile and maybe a sloppy kiss, we also go to visit the local nursing homes and it is very rewarding to see the dogs you love bring a smile to the face of someone who seconds before looked lost and hopeless! I also use my dogs as dog/dog therapy dogs in my canine behavioral practice as well as getting out when I can to dog shows so I'm not around the phone much I'm sorry to say, and I just want to make sure that everyone who has called or emailed an not got a reply that I'm sorry, really sorry but I am only one person and it's not because I don't care it's simply because there are only so many hours in a day and my dogs always come first as do the people who already have one or more of my dogs, then I do the best I possibly can to return your phone calls and emails, if you don't hear from me, try-try again!!! However if your puppy application is approved I like to talk to each person on the phone (or in person) as part of the application process, I am extremely picky about who I choose for my babies! Anyone is always welcome to come and visit (assuming I don't have brand new puppies at the time-I won't even let family members visit until they are 4 weeks old to keep them safe from canine disease that can be spread simply by someone touching another dog or walking on the sidewalk where another dog has been! I am very protective of my babies! But other than that anyone is welcome to come and meet my bully-gang :) but as I said before this is NOT a business and we do not have a kennel, this is our home and our dogs are part of our family, so please call to set up a time if you'd like to visit :)

                          "Just A Dog"

                           

                          From time to time, people tell me, "lighten up, it's just a dog,"
                          or, "that's a lot of money for just a dog."

                          They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a dog."

                          Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a dog."

                          Many hours have passed and my only company was "just a dog,"
                          but I did not once feel slighted.

                          Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a dog,"
                          and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a dog" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day.

                          If you, too, think it's "just a dog," then you will probably understand
                          phrases like "just a friend," "just a sunrise," or "just a promise."

                          "Just a dog" brings into my life the very essence of friendship, trust,
                          and pure unbridled joy.

                          "Just a dog" brings out the compassion and patience that make me a better person.

                          Because of "just a dog", I will rise early, take long walks and look longingly to the future.

                          So for me and folks like me, it's not "just a dog" but an embodiment of all the hopes and dreams of the future,
                          the fond memories of the past, and the pure joy of the moment.

                          "Just a dog" brings out what's good in me and diverts my thoughts away
                          from myself and the worries of the day.

                          I hope that someday they can understand that it's not "just a dog",
                          but the thing that gives me humanity and keeps me from being
                          "just a man or woman."

                          So the next time you hear the phrase "just a dog"
                          just smile...
                          because they "just don't understand."

                          by Richard Biby

                          Every dog must have a soul
                          Somewhere deep inside
                          Where all his hurts and grievances
                          Are buried with his pride.
                          Where he decides the good and bad,
                          The wrong way from the right,
                          And where his judgement carefully
                          Is hidden from our sight.
                          A dog must have a secret place
                          Where every thought abides,
                          A sort of close acquaintance that
                          He trusts in and confides.
                          And when accused unjustly for
                          Himself, He cannot speak,
                          Rebuked, He finds within his soul
                          The comfort he must seek.
                          He'll love, tho'he is unloved,
                          And he'll serve tho'badly used,
                          And one kind word will wipe away
                          The times when he's abused.
                          Altho' his heart may break in two
                          His love will still be whole,
                          Because God gave to every dog
                          An understanding Soul!

                          Aristocrat French Bulldogs & Bullmastiffs is located in the beautiful state of Maine

                          We have a huge back yard that is all fenced in with lots of agility equiptment & loads of toys for the dogs to play, run, have lots of fun & get lots of exercise at the same time! They have outside kennels that are 1/2 covered by a roof & the other half open if they want to lay in the sun, the kennels are filled with pine shavings which the dogs are trained to go to the bathroom in & not on the grass, the kennels were initially installed for exercise as well but they only use them as "rest rooms" 

                          We are also in the process of building a dog park for all the local dogs since there is no place that dogs can run free safely and a lot of people don't have the space or fencing we do to make it safe for the dogs, so I am trying to raise enough funds by selling my VetzPets products (unique & extra tough stuff for extra big dogs) to fence in a large lot of property we have for the purpose of a free dog park.

                          We live about 3 hours north of Boston, MA and it's not unusual to see deer or a moose in the middle of maine st.

                          Dog’s best friend

                          January 13, 2008

                          Connecticut Post Online (Bridgeport, Connecticut)

                          July 30, 2006 Sunday

                          Dog’s best friend

                          Dennis McBride had a childhood dream that seemed out of reach for a boy growing up in the housing projects of Brooklyn, N.Y.

                          His vision, after seeing television broadcasts of the Westminster Dog Show, was to own a champion canine and enter it in the prestigious competition. That may have seemed nearly impossible at the time, since owning a pet was not even allowed in the projects.

                          But over the years a lot has changed for McBride, who is now a physician and director of the Milford Health Department. In February, McBride entered King Kwame of Bayview, his 2-year-old bull mastiff, in the 129-year-old dog show held annually at New York’s Madison Square Garden.

                          “I was just happy being there,” McBride said. “I had always thought that if I ever had a dog I wanted to take him to Westminster.”

                          The Westminster Dog Show, run by the Westminster Kennel Club, showcases dogs from each of 165 sanctioned breeds. The bull mastiff became a recognized breed after years of combining the Old English bulldog popular in the late 19th century with a mastiff. “Most purebred have some sort of mixes a long way back,” said David Frei, the Westminster Kennel Club’s director of communication. “Bull mastiffs came from the bulldog and the mastiff, and from selecting certain traits that they wanted. They wanted the dog to have a certain tenacity, and the similar size and strength to the mastiff.”

                          While the bull mastiff was originally bred to be a “game-keeper’s night dog” to protect estates from poachers and other threats, it has also gained the reputation as a serious but non-aggressive, loving dog, according to Frei. During the Feb. 13-14 showings, 24 bull mastiffs competed to become best of breed, making it one of the most competitive categories at this year’s event. Kwame is ranked sixth in the country for bull mastiffs.

                          “That’s a large entry,” Frei said, “especially since our show is limited. Only 2,500 are allowed to show. That’s a large category, and very competitive.”

                          Most people bring their dogs to the Westminster showing, according to Frei, because “all the best dogs are there … and they know that all the dog show people in the country are watching this dog show.” But McBride said he entered Kwame merely for enjoyment.

                          “I just wanted to enter him into the show for the fun of it,” McBride said. “It looks pretty easy, but it isn’t. There is a discipline to it and it helps to have a professional dog handler who can show a particular breed the way they need to be shown.”

                          Valerie McBride, the health director’s wife, said they first became involved with showing dogs when they bought Zuna, a 3-year-old female bull mastiff.

                          “The breeder, Dext-Orr Bullmastiffs asked if we were going to show her and that put it into his head,” she said. “He always loved animals. I took some handling classes and we decided to try it out.”

                          When they approached Shirley Boxer, a professional handler from New Jersey, about showing the dog, she said that she would rather show Kwame than Zuna, who didn’t enjoying going to dog shows. But Kwame loves the experience, McBride said.

                          “When he gets into the ring, he starts strutting around and showing off for the other dogs,” he said. “When we take him outside for a walk, he can’t wait to get back into the ring. He just loves it.”

                          Mayor James L. Richetelli Jr. said Kwame is a favorite among the employees at City Hall when McBride brings the dog for a visit.

                          “He’s a huge dog,” Richetelli said. “You can tell that he truly loves his dog. To have a pet that makes it all the way to the big show is quite an accomplishment.”

                          McBride said he will likely enter Kwame into the Westminster Dog Show again next year, although it may be his last. The handler usually takes Kwame for several months prior to show him at other events throughout the region to gain the points needed for Westminster.

                          “It may sound sappy, but I hate to give him up,” McBride said. “But if he doesn’t have to spend too much time away from home, then maybe we’ll continue.”

                          Anyone interested in seeing Kwame in action can view video coverage of the bull mastiff prejudging on the Westminster Kennel Club’s Web site, www.westminsterkennelclub.org.

                          DOGS PROVIDE US WITH BIG HEALTH BENEFITS!!!

                          Dogs and Pets Provide Health Benefits

                          Do dogs provide health benefits? Believe it or not they do! Did you know that owning a dog and pet ownership in general, can help a person in many ways? Owning a pet can improve your mental wellness, reduce your visits to the doctor, improve your cardiovascular health and allow for faster recovery time from surgery as well as higher survival rates. Recent research suggests that dogs may be able to detect cancer on a person's breath! Lets' explore these amazing health benefits of pet ownership:

                          It has been proven that dog owners have lower blood pressure and cholesterol levels than non-dog owners. These factors, in turn, reduce the chance of cardiovascular diseases. In fact, just stroking a pet has long been known to reduce blood pressure. Furthermore, a study from the New York State University concluded that these benefits continue even without the pet being present!

                          Hospital studies have shown that senior citizens and recent post-op patients respond better to treatment and recover faster while in contact with dogs and other therapy animals. Did you know that dog owners have a greater chance to survive a serious illness than non-dog owners? In fact, a study revealed that a pet affected a person's survival rate even more than the presence or company of family members or friends!

                          Studies conducted at Cambridge and UCLA concluded that there is a direct correlation between pet ownership and improved overall health, which leads to fewer visits to the doctor. The Journal of American Geriatrics Society notes that pet ownership has a positive effect on a senior's physical and emotional well being. Additionally, a Medicare study of elderly patients also shows that people who own a dog have fewer doctor visits than patients who do not.

                          Pet owners have better emotional health and mental wellness than people who do not own a pet. Pets offer unconditional love and affection and their presence alone helps reduce loneliness. For people who are isolated, disabled or handicapped, a pet offers friendship and can even add a element of safety to their lives. Dogs are used as a form of therapy in hospices, nursing homes and as companions for the disabled and blind. In fact, there are studies that prove that people with a major illness fight the stress of having the illness better by having a dog as a pet.

                          There is new research that suggests that dogs may be able to detect certain types of cancer. Researchers at the Pine Street Foundation in San Anselmo, California and the Polish Academy of Sciences exposed dogs to breath samples from breast and lung cancer patients and samples from healthy people. They claim that the dogs were able to detect cancer with astonishing results and accuracy. The dogs were able to identify 99% of lung cancer breath samples (which included early stage cancer patients) as well as 88% of breast cancer samples. The study, which has been met with skepticism, will be released early in 2006 and published in the March edition of the Journal for Integrative Cancer Therapies. Experts agree that this holds promise, but must be evaluated and researched further.

                          As you can see pet ownership or having a dog comes with many benefits for an individual. Owning a pet encourages social interaction, reduces stress levels, boosts self-confidence and self-esteem and encourages exercise. Having a pet is a great investment, not only in the joy and pleasure that the animal brings into your life, but the many health benefits that come with the territory!

                          The Bullmastiff, which is the only guarding dog breed from England was created in 19th century in this country. At these times, landowners were threatened by poachers, so they employed gamekeepers to protect their area. Gamekeepers needed a fast, fearless and powerful dog to help them do their job – the perfect breed for this need would have been a combination of an Old English Bulldog and a Mastiff. So they crossed the two breeds and create a new one: the Bullmastiff, which is a cross of 40% English Bulldog and 60% Mastiff. That is how their perfect guard was created.

                          Later on, the Bullmastiff became more and more known and popular. It is recognized by the English Kennel Club since 1924 and by the American Kennel Club since 1933.

                          Bullmastiff History

                          "Nobody can fully understand the meaning of love unless they've owned a DOG.

                          A dog can show you more honest affection with the flick of his tail or tongue than a man can gather through a lifetime of handshakes."
