Gromit is the #1 Mastiff in Canada for 2021, and so far the only Mastiff to obtain their Bronze Level Grand Champion!!
Gromit has been one of the Top 2 Mastiffs in Canada for the past 4 years running, and is more than 1/2 way to his Silver GCH as of December 2021.
It's hard to believe, but Gromit is 4 years old now! He's still a sweet, goofy, and stubborn boy with his own set ideas about how things should run at home; but he's also a dog I trust implicitly around new people and young dogs/puppies. He loves nothing more than to head butt your legs and rub up against you like a cat, and his favourite place to sleep is in our bed with his head on MY pillow. At least he doesn't give me his butt end like he does to his "dad"!
He has an AMAZING head and chest with deep, well sprung ribs and a lovely topline, and huge bone. If I were to change anything about him, it would be to give him more rear angulation. He would be an excellent match with a bitch who needed more bone and a better headpiece/front end.
I'm so excited to see what he does as a mature dog, and am looking forward to getting him into Rally Obedience classes so he can get a few 'smart dog' titles as well.
At just 13 months, and only 4.5 show weekends after attaining his championship, our darling Gromit now has a Grand Championship title in front of his name!
Gromit now has a Group 3 & Group 4 placement to his name! Both of those were achieved by the time he turned 12 months old.
WOW... at 9 months and 10 days old, with 4 Best of Breed majors (and 2 singles) from the Sr Puppy class, Gromit is now a Canadian Champion!!
Gromit is our keeper boy from the Rouge x Jules litter we had in July 2017. He's a sweet, silly, and stubborn boy who likes to do things HIS way, and reminds me a lot of his older half brother Wallace.
He is a lovely tank of a puppy, and embodies everything I was aiming for with this line breeding. I can't wait to get him out and about, and I think we're all excited about his future!
