Burningwood Bullmastiffs started about 12 years ago when a beautiful girl named Callie (CH. Banstock Calypso) came into my life. Callie and her breeder, Helene Nietsch (Banstock) taught me so much about this wonderful breed. In addition I have had other, great mentors in Pam Kochuba (Shady Oak) and Fern Dittmar (Bully Boy) over the years and although the learning process never ends, I strive to follow all that they have taught me and pass it on to others.
My goal is to produce the best Bullmastiffs that I can according to the breed standard. I am committed to breeding for great temperaments, health, personality, and beautiful conformation. All Burningwood Bullmastiffs are sold on a contract and come with a health guarantee. All breeding stock is screened for hips, elbows, heart, eyes and thyroid.
In addition I am a member of The American Bullmastiff Association. I'm a member of The Delaware Valley Bullmastiff Club and serve on the Wallkill (NY) Kennel Club Board of Directors.
Atom is an awesome star with a number Working Group placements. He has attained Gold level Grand Champion status and is, as of right now, semi-retired. Check out this beautiful boy on the Our Boys page.
Ruby (GCH Burningwood's Calypso Fever) has, sadly, passed away. She was a strong, tough dog and a great watchdog. She is missed.
Belle (Burningwood's Good Time Girl CGC, CD, RN, RA) completed her Rally Advanced title and has, also, officially retired. She went through another round of mast cell removal and this time we are not so great-prognosis guarded. Her spirits are good.. Sadly she passed in November, 2018. Check out Belle's web page on this site.
Layla (CH Burningwood's Layla After Midnight) She is 5 years old and 110 lbs of pure brindle energy. She has obtained both her Conformation Championship and her CGC (Canine Good Citizen) title-I guess they know something I don't. This dog has not met the hill she wouldn't climb or the pond she wouldn't dive into. I caught her standing on the dining table the other day-not to be bad-just because she could do it. She is a challenge. 2019 has brought retirement
for this tough brindle girl.
Lizzie (Burningwood's Moonlight and Roses) is our newest addition. She is a Layla/Satchel baby. She inherited her mother's headstrong attitude and, unfortunately, wants to eat anything that doesn't try to eat her first. Watch for this girl in the ring and whelping box in 2019. She is due to be bred to Atom (see our boys page).
2018 brought the loss of several Burningwood dogs including my beloved Belle ( Burningwood's Good Time Girl), my sweet companion and partner-see Belle's page and her sisters Ruby, Nuli and Elsa. My heart and condolences go out to the families who loved them until the end.
