Founder of Guardian Angel Bullmastiffs

My husband Jeff and I are the loving parents of four wonderful, grown children, proud grandparents of twelve beautiful grandchildren and four great grandchildren. We are located in sunny Polk City, FL about an hour southwest of Orlando. We welcome you to come visit our facility and meet our dogs and our family. All of our puppies are raised and cared for indoors with exposure to children and other dogs from the very beginning of their lives.

Bullmastiffs and kids

We have been showing and breeding bullmastiffs since 2016. I surprised my husband Jeff with our first bullmastiff, Daisy, in 2005. He was convinced he would never be able to love another dog the way he loved his Blue Heeler, “Katie Bug”. That was until we met our first bullmastiff, and we have continued to love this breed more and more ever since. Our lives were forever changed and filled with a new kind of love and excitement with this breed. Ana Banana is currently our beautiful star. She is the winner of two American Bullmastiff Association National Specialty Best of Breeds for 2018, and 2019. Ana has also recently won her fourth Best of Opposite Sex at Westminster. She is a multiple group winner and America’s #1 bullmastiff of 2020. The credit for Ana’s success is all due to Dr. Jacqueline Royce (below left) and Donna Butler (below far right). It has brought Jeff and I so much joy to watch these two women reach such success in the conformation world. Handling and showing dogs has been a dream of theirs since they were both very young, and they are phenomenal at what they do. They work so hard and they have such a love for what they do. It is truly inspiring.

We pride ourselves in our dedication to our bullmastiffs and every one of our puppies that we send to their future homes.. We make it clear in our contract that if you are unable or unwilling to continue care for a puppy that you have purchased from us, that we will gladly take that puppy back into our care. We never want our puppies or dogs to end up in a rescue facility without a permanent, loving home. We occasionally have retired adults available to place in homes and we are also working with the ABA (American Bullmastiff Association) rescue program to help bullmastiffs around the country to find permanent homes, so if you are willing to rescue a bullmastiff please visit their website or check out our available adults.
