I had always wanted a Mastiff and the time was right in our lives
to add a "Gentle Giant" to our household. John and I got our start
in the Mastiff world in 2005 with our girl Jaclyn. I knew something
was different about Jaclyn's hair length but didn't learn she was a
"fluffy" until she was 11 months old.
Since then a few more Mastiffs have come to live at Stargazer.
All our dogs are raised in the home and are a part of our family.
We started showing in the conformation ring in 2006 when Buster
turned 6 months old and both of us really enjoy showing our gang.
If you are considering adding a Mastiff to your household, please
research the breed. They are not a breed for everyone.
They drool and shed making it impossible to keep your home spotless.
Take the time to meet several Mastiffs in person and visit a few
Breeders in your area and attend an AKC Dog Show. This breed
can be very expensive to maintain due to their size. Food, medication and Vet costs are considerably more for a Mastiff than they are for the average-sized dog. Health testing for Mastiffs is extremely important and all our breeding stock will reflect this.
If you determine the Mastiff is right for you and your family, they are a wonderful breed with a gentle nature and make wonderful companions.
I hope you enjoy our website and come back to visit regularly as it is constantly being updated.
