Breeder Info: Dur-Anya Bullmastiff 's

Breed(s): Bullmastiff

My name is Lisa Heffner, "Dur-Anya Bullmastiff's,reg" is my kennel, that I have been breeding bullmastiff's for about 30 years. I have been a member of our parent club, The American Bullmastiff Association (ABA), for 25 years. I am a Breeder Of Merit (BOM) under the AKC since 2012. I was honored to be given the "Sportsman Of The Year," from the ABA(American Bullmastiff Association). My goal for my breeding program is to breed bullmastiff's that are sound of body and mind. What this means is that I use many technologies for determining health of my bullmastiff's. I also take in consideration the stability in the temperament of the bullmastiff into the breeding. I don't breed often. I only breed to improve my breeding program; never breeding for added income. I take many great lengths in testing my dogs for health issues; such as: heart disease, hip & elbow dysplasia, thyroid function, and eye issues. These test are sent for evaluation through Orthopedic Foundation For Animals (OFA(www.offa.org)), and Penn Hip, which checks for the Distraction Index(DI). The OFA is an open database, and the Penn Hip is not. Please feel free to check on the site, as you will see many pages of my dogs, "Dur-Anya Bullmastiff's," and the results of each dog will be posted. You simply pull up the breed, then use my kennel name. My history of dogs is quite extensive. I have been involved in breeding of dogs all my life. My parents bred Borzoi's, Rottweiler's, and Afghan Hound's, Bullterriers, and Rex cats. When I was about 7, I began showing the dogs at local matches. In my teens, I was showed in the Junior Handler competition ring, breed rings with breed such as:Borzoi, Rottweiler, Boston Terrier. I began assisting many great handlers, whom I consider to this day as mentors. I am a New Englander, born and raised in the North East; MA. This gave me the ease to attend The Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show(Westminster) I showed there for the first time with a Rottweiler,"Sabra", in the Open Bitch Class. In 2008, CT A/C CH Dur-Anya 's Wind It Up Baby, CT, A/C CD, CDX, RE, CGC, "ZOOM", won the prestigious BOS(BEST OF OPPOSITE SEX) in a very large entry. She was shown by myself; as a breeder/owner/handler, with great pride. I have shown many others of my gang at this show, all owner- handlered. I began to special one of my males, "NATE," MBISS A/C CH. Dur-Anya's Nitesneak Stonebull, CDX, A/C CD, NDD, CGC, GROM. He then qualified for the Eukanuba Dog Show. He climbed to the top 5 bullmastiffs in the Country. He also became a #1 Bullmastiff in the NE Region for two years. All of these wins, group placements, group wins, Specialty wins; were ALL owner-handled! My breeding program has allowed me the privilege to show in venues; such as obedience and tracking, as well as the breed ring(show ring). I have put two UD's on my bullmastiff's; MHIT Dur-Anya 's Nite Aria Stonebull, UD, A/C CDX, RE, CGC, "ARIA", and CT MHIT Dur-Anya's Little Secret, CT, CDX, A/C CD, RE, "WHISPER". I also have the ONLY CT(CHAMPION TRACKING DOGS) in the history of bullmastiff's to this day: CT MHIT Dur-Anya's Little Secret, CT, CDX, A/C CD, RE, "WHISPER", & CT A/C CH. Dur-Anya's Wind It Up Baby, VST, CDX, A/C CD, RE, CGC, "ZOOM." A CHAMPION TRACKING DOG(CT); is a dog who has passed it's VST, TDX, and TD. Yearly in the Country, there are only a handful of dogs who have been awarded this prestigious title. I have many tracking, obedience, , conformation , Best In Specialty wins, Groups placements, Group wins, youngest dog to qualify for a CD leg,and many other prestigious wins. These all have been owner handler. What this has done has allowed me to get to know the bullmastiff better; in regards to how they think, and how their body performs. Through these years of training in multiple venues, I have had to evolve myself to become a better trainer and partner. This relationship is a very tight bond, and takes many hours, miles, years, and time to evolve. But the reward of this partnership, is beyond rewarding. Each and every day, I learn something new to add to my toolbox in learning more about Bullmastiffs. The matching the puppy with the appropriate home is very important. What I do to bring the perfect puppy-home match is; use temperament testing, family evaluation, and living with the puppies 24/7 for the entire 8 weeks of life. A family that has a bustling, and busy life needs a puppy that matches the temperament of that home. A home that is quiet, needs a puppy that settles down easily. With raising my litters in my home from day #1, allows me the ability to watch the temperaments of the puppies as they grow. When a puppy and home are mismatched, the puppy unfortunately suffers all the poor decisions. My dogs are house dogs. They don't live in kennels. They sleep in dog beds, or my bed...depending upon the snoring level. I always have one of my dogs with me at all times. You never know when you find a great pond or lake to swim in along the way. I travel quite a bit to compete in these venues; putting over 50K on my truck a year. The litters are hand-raised. From minute one, they are with me. I watch them grow, open their eyes, and ears, wag their tails for the first time, puppy play, and just become silly fun puppies then go off to their respective homes, or to become part of our family here. Our next breeding will be done in hopes for Christmas or New Years puppies! The Mom To Be (dam): Dur-Anya N Faithdriven Jointdriven, CGC, RN, OFA..."BOUNCE" THE TWO SIRES ARE: MBIS MBISS A/C CH Bastion's Louisville Slugger, RN, CGC, GROM, OFA..."LOUIE " MBISS A/C CH Dur-Anya's Nitesneak Stonebull, CDX, A/C CD, NDD, RA, CGC, OFA..."NATE" The puppies will be DNA tested to determine the sire. This is a very exciting litter as both boys were great show dogs, had super happy and stable temperaments, and both loved to work. Bastion Bullmastiff's, is a well established breeding program, under Lynn Spohr. Bastion Bullmastiff's, has been breeding for over 30 years! I can't say enough about the integrity of her breeding program. Please contact me via an email: duranyabmstf@gmail.com Or, using the AKC system given system. I thank you for your inquiry into my Dur-Anya Bullmastiff's.
