About Us

Welcome to Gridiron Bullmastiffs.  My name is Terry and my husband Darren and I live in Michigan and currently own four fun loving bullmastiffs.  We got our first bullmastiff "Samson" many years ago.   He introduced us to the bullmastiff breed that we have fallen in love with.  Somebody once told me that bullmastiffs are like potato chips, you can just have one.  And they were right!

Our bullmastiffs are first and foremost pets.  They live in our house, sleep on the furniture, and are loved and spoiled rotten. 

Showing bullmastiffs is a hobby.  I have Owner Handled our  females "Stoli", "Morgan", and "Jordy" to their AKC Championships and Grand Championships and "Boomer" to his AKC Championship.  I have also showed the girls in UKC and have obtained UKC Championships on them. 

When looking for kennel names I came up with Gridiron from my husbands love for football and by watching "Stoli" play around the yard and tackle the other dogs like a linebacker.  The name was only fitting! You will notice that most of our registered names on our dogs have a "Football Theme".

Like showing, breeding bullmastiffs is our hobby.  Our goal is to make the breed better.  The breedings will be carefully planned in hopes of producing quality puppies with wonderful temperments.

Health is also an important aspect in our breeding program.   All of our bullmastiffs are Health and OFA tested.  We are proud to say that we have produced and earned an OFA CHIC Status on both of our "Stoli " daughters "Morgan" and "Daisy", and Morgan's son "Jack" has also earned his CHIC Status.   

I am a member of the the American Bullmastiff Association and the Midwest Bullmastiff Fanciers. I am also a member or the Great Lakes Bullmastiff Association, where I am an active board member.
