Córdoba” was born in our kennel and
currently lives with his owner Susann
Everett in the U.S.
in the world of purebred dogs, was with a
beautiful specimen of Irish Setter, back in the
Later in the nineties I started to breed Scottish
Terriers, a breed that filled me with great
satisfaction and countless awards in shows, even
winning the national ranking.
In 1998, during a trip to the U.S. I had the
chance to attend an exhibition in New York and in
one of the tracks, I could admire more than fifty
specimens of the Mastiff breed; impressive,
I couldn’t ignore the fantastic sight provided by
these giants, worthy, as they were in sad times,
of the Roman circus.
I researched about breed, acquired literature, and
decided to bring Takunda, one of the first
mastiffs specimens imported into Argentina. A
beautiful seven-month female from the renowned
kennel "Beowulfs Mastiffs” in New York, of Susann
Everett. I eventually developed nice friendship
with her and her husband who are very warm people
and have always been very hospitable when I visit
As a breeder she has great ability and
professionalism. Her kennel produced hundreds of
American and Canadian champions. Many times her
specimens stand out in the main specialized breed
shows in the U.S.
In 2000, I imported from the same kennel a
stunning male, "Beowulfs Road Warrior" "Diesel"
of six months, who won the titles of Champion and
Grand Champion of Argentina, was Uruguayan
Champion in the National Ranking 2002 and 2003,
Latin American Champion, International Champion,
Winner of SICALAM and was multiple Best in Show.
In 2005, in order to continue breeding with
imported specimens from the same Kennel “Beowulfs
" from the U.S., I brought Ch Arg "Beowulfs Breezy"
a beautiful female, selected by pedigree and
structure for "Diesel”.
I was honored to welcome Susann Everett, top
breeder of mastiffs in the U.S. and owner of "Beowulfs"
kennel, and her husband, Scott, at home. Together
we evaluated the exceptional litter born of
"DIESEL" and "BREEZY" and she selected
a male to take back to the U.S. where he competed
claiming the title of "American Champion" and
later was taken to Canada winning the title of "Canadian
This is an outstanding achievement for my kennel
and an opportunity to exchange personal
experiences with a breeder of great importance and
knowledge of the breed as Susann Everett.
Later, I brought from the same kennel "Beowulfs
Syracuse" “Shyraz", a spectacular
female. She obtained countless victories on the
track including the title of Champion and
Argentine Grand Champion, Chilean Champion, Latin
American Champion, International Champion, Winner
of SICALAM, and Best in Show.
To continue to improve the breeding of specimens
with the highest quality and in order to open the
bloodlines and maintain the purest qualities
morphological and temperamental from English
Mastiffs, recently I decided to import European
One of our stud is "Jerome du Domaine de Straz".
Comes from my friends Sabine and Diego Strazzeri’s
kennel, from Belgium. They have been breeding
mastiffs for many years; taking care of the
structure, beauty and movement. They have produced
more than 125 specimens of more than 125 kilos who
were outstanding in the major European shows,
obtaining such important titles as “World Junior
Champion"with 66 mastiffs on the track at the
World show in Denmark.
They also obtained the top positions in the major
show of Crufft, England with 94 mastiffs on track.
Their specimens have obtained Champion titles in
all European countries.
Sabine and Diego Strazzeri not only take care of
the structure and beauty of the mastiff, but also
place special emphasis on the proverbial
temperament of this breed. Their specimens perform
as therapy dogs in nursing homes, with disabled
"Jerome du Domaine de Straz" came home with
their breeders and I had the precious opportunity
to spend some time with Sabine and Diego Strazzeri.
Really nice people with great experience in
It was really priceless for me as a Latin American
breeder to be able to exchange views with such
knowledgeable people on the different bloodlines
of the European continent.7
I have currently added two spectacular puppies a
male "Tyson Slnko Zemplina" and a female
"Pretty Slnko Zemplina” from Dr. Polievka
Mikulas’ kennel from Slovakia. They have an
impressive structure and beauty, famous specimens
for its size and correction, with English and
American blood lines of typical and large
I think I have achieved with these last two
specimens, the best European lines.
This ancient breed went from war and fight dog to
guardian of castles and now, after careful
selection, has become an excellent guard dog and
My mastiffs are my life partners and live with me,
my family, and friends, in place they deserve.
If you are considering or have decided to have a
mastiff keep you company and protect your family,
I am at your disposal to give you advise and share
all my experience about this exceptional breed.
