The puppies from Maggie and Bean's litters have been placed in wonderful homes and I couldn't be happier. There will be a litter of cousins arriving mid-December to Kathy Kocher-Gladen of Gaffle Bullmastiffs. To be placed on the waiting list please contact Kathy by clicking the link above.
Ms. Bean was bred to the incredible Bruin aka Bronze Grand Champion Banstock n Highpoint New Day Bruin at Kimo . Bruin was 6 months + a few days old when he first won his first Best of Breed and Group placements. He is now a multiple Group placing and Group winning Bullmastiff.He hasn’t looked back at all and is currently ranked as the #4 All Breed Bullmastiff and is a Top 10 Bullmastiff for the current 2014 American Bullmastiff Association's Top 25 after only being specialed for a very short time.
Bean is a confident bitch who's tail is always wagging happily and enjoys meeting new friends -human and animal alike. She is athletic and clearly the fastest and most agile girl in our pack. Bean is major pointed out of the puppy classes and is midway to her championship.
Bruin and Bean are a nice tight line breeding on the special Bruno (BISS CH Banstock Bruno of the Northeast GROM OFA) and on CH Allstar’s Mugsy Malone.This is another exciting breeding that I expect happy go lucky working dog attitude from their mother and the stable, docile temperament of their father.I hope that this linebreeding will produce typey, pretty working dogs that can do just about anything they put their heart too
After taking her time coming into heat, she finally did in July and she has been bred to the lovely Champion Gaffle’s Fezzik CGC CHIC.Fezz is a laid back guy that a few years ago took the Southwest Bullmastiff Regional Specialty by storm….. going down there as a new class dog never having been in the show ring, and coming home a champion!Fezz then returned to life as the house dog that he was.He is everything that Ms Maggie needs….. we are looking forward to strong toplines, short backs, good bites and rock solid temperments.Fezz is a maternal half-brother to our Ms. Bean… and carries such greats in his past as BISS CH Banstock Bruno of the Northeast GROM OFA, and BISS GCH CAN/INT CH Newcastle's Picturesque Picasso TDI.With Maggie’s outgoing, vivacious personality and Fezz’s easygoing, up for anything personality…. I can’t wait to see what we are going to get!
Introducing AKC MultipleBOSS CH Icon's Absolute Double Shot Of Kahlua!! A dog formally known as just Kahlua.... Kahlua finished her CH the hard way... By going BOW over the boys two days in a row for those last 4 points to finish. She was shown lightly to many numerous wins! Her winnings include multiple Best Opposite in Specialty Sweepstakes, and winning a major her first time in the ring at 10 months by going Best Opposite to Best Of Breed over a special bitch! Kahlua has continued on her winning ways her first weekend out as a special winning BOS over multiple quality girls! Kahlua is lovingly owned and shown by my friends Karen Freeman and Todd Pierce of Absolute Bullmastiffs in Eastern WA.
PS - Kahlua... Momma Zip says you were always the naughty one in the litter.... So glad you grew up to be something special.... She knew that naughty energy could be put to good use!!! Love you even though you always are silly naughty girl! -
PPS..... Maggie says I'll race you to a Silver GCH Kahlua!
Sly is our sole survivor from Zip's litter. His coloring is beautiful red brindle with dark black mask. I did have concerns about him being solo. Singletons can lack understanding of correct dog language and social responses as a result of not maturing in a pack. Puppies learn from their litter mates "how to be a dog". I am fortunate to have a friend who has a litter just a bit older than Sly and has allowed me to "borrow" a couple of Sly's cousins. The fawn puppies below "Green Collar Boy" and "Black Collar Boy" are 2 1/2 weeks older. Sly will be staying here with us, but his cousins are available. If you are interested in one of the boys click here to contact me.
Congratulation's again to Ms. Kahlua (Icon's Double Shot of Kahlua) for beating the boys for another 2 points! She is 15 months old and just looking for her last two points! A BRINDLE GIRL!!! Congratulations to Karen Freeman and Todd Pierce for doing such an outstanding job! (will be posting pics soon)
Icon's Absolute Double Shot of Kahlua (Henry x Zip). Kahlua walked into the show ring like she owned it.... taking a major from the 9-12 month class and Best Opposite Sex over specials her very first time ever in the ring! Kahlua went to the CNBC Regional ABA Specialty and took home Best Opposite in Sweeps over 15 other bitches and only her second show! Kahlua is lovingly owned by Karen Freeman and Todd Pierce. She is another outstanding puppy from the winning combination of Zip and Henry!
Ms. Maggie and Alexis Smith headed to the Central Point Show in Central Oregon and picked up a Group 4 on November 3rd under Judge Ms. Carolyn l Alexander. Thank you Ms. Alexander for this exciting win! Maggie is now a multiple group placing bitch before age 2! I want to thank Alexis Smith, her co-owner and handler, for all of her hard work with Maggie. Next week they are off to California to see what the sunny state has in store for them!
