Our dogs are our companions and the light of our lives. Some of them are show dogs and some of them are just simply our wonderful companions. We occasionally breed our dogs for the betterment of the bullmastiff’s health and standard, but before we do we screen our dogs through OFA (Orthopedic Foundation for Animals) according to the ABA’s (American Bullmastiff Association) Health & Research Committee’s recommendations. More specifically, the ABA recommends hip, elbow, eye, and thyroid evaluation as well as a cardiac exam. This ensures that certain health concerns will not continue on into future generations if either parent does have any present.
