2/12/2017 Ivanka will be 12 months on 2/19/2017. She is such a beauty, she has her sire's head and eyes. She has a masculine look that we just love in a female.
Welcome to Mountainheel English Mastiffs, where our West Virginia Mountaineers and North Carolina Tar Heels roots coexist as one. "A House is not a Home, without a Mastiff" -unknown. We are currently located in Central Florida, just south of Tampa.
Here at Mountainheel Mastiffs, we are committed to breeding the AKC English Mastiff standard: health, temperament, confirmation and size. The most common statement I hear from people is, "We want a big 200# Mastiff", but Mastiffs weights vary widely. The average adult weight for a male is approximately 160-200 lbs plus, and the average adult weight for a female is 120-180 lbs or more. So with that said, it is a very broad range. Our Mastiffs are strictly AKC registered with their pedigrees on our website for your viewing; we have no affiliation with any other registrations. We are not a kennel, we are just a family who loves, enjoys and understands the needs of this unique and special breed. We only have one breeding pair at any given time. Our dogs were selectively chosen after doing an excessive amount of research including, but not limited to, being mentored from other breeders/friends, most currently a show breeder with 22+ years of experience.
Our dogs are members of our family and they live in the house with us.They are fed quality holistic food, incorporated with a raw diet. They are very sweet and loving dogs, and we take great pride in them. Our Mastiffs are healthy and beautiful creatures with great dispositions.They have been raised in the house with our three children whom they love and instinctively protect. These are our pets, they are not kenneled, we share our home with these giants. A Mastiff needs to be close to his family, and that Mastiff should be inside living as a member of the family, no exceptions in our opinion!
We plan to breed Kaya with Phoenix in the future, as well as add a second female breeder to the family as well. We are looking into that, trying to find another suitable female to pair with our gorgeous Phoenix. We get so many requests and are unable to fulfill wishes of puppies because we only have one female, and sometimes a breeding doesn't take and it takes that much longer to provide you with a baby. This is why we have decided to add a second female and we are excited about this decision!
Some lineage inlcudes: Madigan, CH Groppetti's Lord Henry of MMRB, CH Semper Fi Groppetti Gargoyle, CH Moonshadow Blood Sweat And Tears, Briarcreek, Goliath, Greco, Braveheart, Rockytop,
GCH CH Mighty Maverick of H&H Acres, Tamarack, Tigerline, Mystery Mountain and Eklesia Mastiffs....just to name a few!
Thank you for visiting our Mountainheel Mastiffs.
