Welcome to my site.
At Black River Bullmastiffs I have not chosen either of the two conventional methods of running a breeding program; one centered on the show ring and the other centered on the profit. I have set my own goals for this truly rewarding hobby; to breed strong healthy functional Bullmastiffs. I strive for Bullmastiffs that are true to the original intent of the breed and standard. Sound mind well balanced, breed type, heavy bone and the ability to move. My Bullmastiffs truly work they all have drive and purpose. They do not live in crates to keep them safe and Barbie/Ken like so they look pretty for the next show.
I do show for confirmation and support and encourage my puppy owners to engage in many sports available to our breed. I have my dogs health tested and certified for clearance of the diseases that I believe are genetic. Let me be clear Many of the things you here about genetics and what is passed on is not correct. There is NOT a consensus on all genetic diseases.
I have experienced first hand the unethical practices of exploiting animals for profit. Due to this; I vowed from the beginning that my Bullmastiff Kennel would be designed around the desire of happy live's for all involved! My Bullies are all in large pens that allow for full runs. They do not live in small chain link on concrete enclosure like many other breeders choose to utilize.
I have designed my pens to be approx. an acre or more in size, to give plenty of room to romp around and play. All pens have ample shade and a kiddy pool, as bullies love a splash and enjoy the water. Everyone is rotated into the house, where they are treated to a bath and are trained to be social functional as well as there natural abilities to guard and protect. Feel free to visit and experience our world for your self. Check out our bullmastiff puppies as well. On the Planned litters page you will see Bullmastiff puppies that I have available now and occasionally adult Bullmastiff dogs. The future Bullmastiff breedings can also be seen. You will also find lots of information on care for your bullmastiff and bullmastiff puppy on the care page. Please always consider a Bullmastiff Rescue there are many who need a loving home. I would be happy to help you find the right rescue for you and your family.
