Gus is a handsome chap with an excellent temperament. He has a super head and excels on the move with a free fluid action. He is very affectionate and loving. He loves a cwtch! Gus is great company and an absolute pleasure to have in our home.
Gus is a proven sire and is available at stud to KC registered bitches only.
COI of 6.3% - below the Annual Breed Average COI for Bullmastiffs of 8.6%.
Gus has passed the Kennel Club Good Citizen Dog Scheme Bronze and Silver awards. We are now working towards Gold. Gus is also a registered Pets As Therapy dog which is further testament to his wonderful temperament. He loves all the fuss and its wonderful to see him make other people happy.
Gus is the first dog we have ever tried to show. He has totally surprised us and is doing really well in the show ring; qualifying for Crufts 2016 (where he won his class!), 2017 (where he was Reserve) and 2018, he is consistently placed at championship shows, he has multiple group placings at open shows and he even won best puppy in show at a charity event! Gus qualified and took part in the 2016 Kennel Club Good Citizen Supermatch where he made it through to the second round.
So chuffed with Gus's critiques!!...
