About StoneBull Bullmastiffs….
We are a small hobby kennel located in southwestern
corner of New Hampshire and began in 1989 with the addition of a bullmastiff puppy into our family of four young
boys. We quickly discovered doing doggie related activities together as a family was a lot of fun and a second
bullmastiff soon followed – “Sky”, a beautiful red puppy girl, who became our foundation bitch, Ch. Buckshorn Red
Sky At Night, CGC, CD, and StoneBull Bullmastiffs was launched.
With each breeding, our goals remain the same, to
produce sound, healthy puppies that are good examples of the breed and will enrich the lives of their families
over their lifetime.
Our breeding stock is tested for normal hip, elbow,
cardiac, eye and thyroid function and the results can be found on the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals website.
Most of the dogs that reside with us participate in agility, obedience or showing in the breed ring and we dabble
a bit in tracking.
At seven weeks old, the puppies are individually
temperament tested using Wendy Volhard’s Puppy Personality Profile and the results are then used to match each
puppy’s inherent personality with its new family’s lifestyle and expectations for the puppy. All of the puppies
are micro chipped and sold on contract, along with a New Hampshire Good Health Certificate and go to their new
homes at eight weeks of age.
We invite you to check out the links below to view
some of our “currently employed” and also “retired” girls and guys. Feel free to give us a call to “talk
