We've loved big dogs for YEARS, but purchased our first AKC English Mastiff, Aeon, in 2009. Aeon is pictured to the left -- she's apricot with a black mask. Our boy came all the way from Michigan in 2010, to be Aeon's love connection. He's officially Itasca Aeon's Sirius Black [yes, we are Harry Potter fans]. We think it was love at first sight for Aeon and Sirius. He's pictured here at 6 weeks old -- next to Aeon's chin!
We are strong believers in breeding healthy, well-tempered English Mastiffs that meet the AKC breed standard. We practice Breed Management by breeding our females just once every twelve months to insure that our pets are healthy and physically fit. Our dogs are family pets. They are part of the pack and live in the house with us. They have regular vet check-ups, and are highly socialized with neighbors and extended family. Sirius LOVES to go to the hardware store with us and schmooze with the customers! Click on the PHOTOS tab to see pics of our dogs just being, well, dogs!
Looking for an AKC English Mastiff puppy?
We absolutely positively will not ship puppies! No way! It's too disorienting for them, and too many things can happen in-route. If you don't live near us, please contact us - we might consider meeting you 1/2 way between Grand Rapids, Minn., and your hometown! Plus, we want to meet our baby's new parents and see your face light up the first time you hold your new furry, wiggly bundle! CHECK OUT OUR AVAILABLE PUPPIES page for info and "ready" dates!
Where in the heck is Grand Rapids?
We're located in northern Minnesota! Our home, Grand Rapids, is just 3 hours north of Minneapolis / St. Paul. The mighty Mississippi River runs right through town!
