International & Finnish & Danish & Swedish & Norwegian & Estonian Ch, FCI World Winner 1992 Bullberry Gwendolyn (pictured here at 8 years) was a super show dog and a very special companion. She had three litters: a litter of three by GB Ch Bryany Starboy, a litter of ten by International Ch, FCI World Winner 1998 Brinscall Brannigan, and a single pup by AM Ch Guardman's Tower of Power. Eight of her offspring finished their Ch titles. She is also the grand dam of International Champions Bullberry Ragtime, Bullberry Bronwen and Bullberry Hereford. Hereford is also an important sire in Russia, and winner of 13 All Breed Best In Shows.

International & American & Finnish & Lithuanian & Swedish & Estonian Ch, FCI Veteran World Winner 2008 Bullberry Ragtime (pictured here at 6 years) was another very special Bullmastiff. She is from the last litter by the very famous American dog Ch Blackalate's Boston Brahmin, and line bred to him, since he is also the dam sire of her dam. Ragtime aka Kukka really loved the attention of the show ring, but of course spent most of time as my personal pet. She is the dam of my 2007 litter.

We lost Bullberry Frideswide (pictured here at 17 months) in the summer of 2012. She was a very special girl, bright and beautiful. She was one of the top winning Bullmastiff juniors around ever: FCI Junior World Winner 2010 in Herning, Denmark under Marit Sunde; European Junior Winner 2010 in Celje, Slovenia under Albert Wight, Baltic Junior Winner 2010 in Riga, Latvia under Olga Sinko, and Nordic Junior Winner 2010 in Lillestrom, Norway under Inger Dahle. During her short career she achieved a lot: 22 Championship and Winner titles. Her last major show was the World Dog show in Salzburg, where she won the champion class and got the reserve-CACIB. She lives on in her offspring from her litter by Ch Houdini the Great is Dvariskiu.
I have owned Bullmastiffs since 1983 and was smitten by the breed from the day one. Spent first years as a pet owner with some occasional showing. I was fortunate to acquire my foundation bitch in 1988. She was a daughter of GB Ch Boomerang of Naukeen and GB Ch Maxstoke Bassey, Top Bullmastiff Bitch in 1987. She later became Finnish Ch Maxstoke Bullberry Inger.
I wanted to combine what I thought was best in England and the USA, and thus inseminated the English import Inger twice with frozen semen imported from the USA. She produced a litter of nine in 1990 by AM & CAN Ch Blackslate's Boston Brahmin and a litter of two in 1992 by AM Ch Black Knight's Caveat, a son of the prominent sire AM Ch Blazin's Brahma Bull.
Seven of her offspring finished their Ch titles, including all her four sons who became important sires: AM Ch Bullberry Blackslate Gene in the USA, Austrian Ch Bullberry Ghostbuster in the continental Europe, and International Champions Bullberry Gamekeeper and Bullberry Slainte in Finland.
From then on I have kept the line going, with very limited breeding, having the emphasis on breed type, temperament, and soundness.
