2013 Litter

Banobrae Boston Belle

'Duke' x 'Piper' litter

This litter is from our home bred girl Piper who was bred to the handsome brindle German dog Int Ch Digger Del Paese 'Duke' using frozen semen. Duke was very successful in the show rings across Europe with many specialist judges recognising his quality conformation and type. His hips were assessed as HD-A (HD free). digger del paese

This is the first Duke litter produced outside of Europe and resulted in three male puppies including the brindle dog Banobrae Bonhoffer 'Louie' who was retained by us.

Piper is a large fawn bitch from our Harriet-Tommy litter in 2010. Although a lovely, typey bitch, Piper was not shown to her title because of an injury that resulted in a serious tear to her bicep ligament and affected her ongoing soundness. (Hips 4:4, Elbows 0:0)

'Kif' x 'Martha' litter

Martha is a fawn bitch from my Harriet-Tommy litter in 2010 whom I co-own with Inese Zimmaro. Martha is a family pet so has not been shown beyond the baby puppy class. She is a substantial bitch at the top of the standard for height. Her hips are 3:3 and her elbows 0:0.

Kif is a stunning fawn dog owned by Roni Oma in Western Australia. Thank you Roni for allowing me to use Kif. 

A medium sized fawn dog of superb conformation, Kif has a wonderful temperament, exceptional movement and a great ring presence that no doubt will see him enjoy a long and illustrious show career. Although still a young dog, Kif has already achieved multiple Best in Specialty Shows under Bullmastiff specialist judges, multiple All Breeds Best in Shows and many Best in Group and Class in Show awards..

 

2010 Litters

Bullmaster Black Prince x Banobrae Soul Sister

Huey Head30'Houston' x 'Ellimae' litter

For a few years now I've been planning to bring into our breeding program some of the quality Australian and UK bloodlines that feature in the Bullmaster pedigrees, including dogs from kennels such as Soloshel, Grasslock and Nightbeauty. 

Two of my favourite Bullmaster dogs are RUBISS Gr Ch Nightpower Special Rquest (Mia) and Bullmaster Black Knight (Marshall) and we have used a son of these two dogs - Bullmaster Black Prince (Houston) see photo at left – to sire a litter with our girl Banobrae Soul Sister (Ellimae). Thank you to the Hartshorn family and Bullmaster Kennels for allowing us to use this special boy.

Houston is a balanced, medium-sized red brindle dog with a beautiful headpiece and laid backEllimae 9Oct2010 sm temperament. Hips 4:5 and Elbows 0:0.

Houston was only shown a handful of times as his primary role has always been as the much loved family member of the Hartshorn family. He made his show ring debut with a big win, taking home Best Baby Puppy in Group under Breed Specialist Bill Walkey and followed up with class wins at the Club Open Show and Melbourne Royal. This is Houston's first litter

The litter of three puppies - two dogs and a bitch arrived in November 2010. You can follow the progress of these puppies in our photo album.

Houston was bred by Bullmaster Kennels. Many thanks to Bullmaster and the Hartshorn family for allowing us to use Houston.

 

 


Ch Blackslates Boston Blend (Imp USA) x Ch Banobrae Soul SerenadeAust. CH Blackslate's Boston Blend (Imp. USA) 07 - Tommy

'Tommy' x 'Harriet' litter

Tommy features prominently in the pedigrees of all the Banobrae Bullmastiffs and we expect this grandfather-granddaughter frozen semen breeding with our young bitch Ch Banobrae Soul Serenade to further cement the classic Blackslate breed type and characteristics in our lines.

Born in 1997, Tommy was imported from the USA as a young dog and had a successful show career. 

But his greatest legacy has been the significant genetic influence he has had on the Bullmastiff breed in Australia with Tommy's name featuring in the pedigree of many of our top winning dogs. Tommy has now passed on after reaching a grand old age. 

This is a linebreeding back to the prepotent US sire Ch Blackslate's Hot Shot who descends from world-renowned dogs such as the great AmHarriet 140810 sm. Sp. Int. Ch. Blackslate`s Boston Blackie Gold ROM and Am. Can. Ch. Blackslate`s Boston Brahmin Gold ROM, both of whom have achieved great records in the breed. 

Tommy was a rich red brindle of good size and great substance. His friendly and laid back personality was a real asset and one that he is passing on to his progeny. Tommy's total hip score was 3 under the Australian AVA system and an International Grade A, or OFA Excellent. His elbows are graded 0:0. Thank you to John and Jessamy Morrissey for allowing us to use Tommy.

Harriet and Tommy's litter was born in late November 2010 and comprised 2 dogs and 6 bitches. Colours in the litter included brindles, reds and fawns. You can follow the progress of these puppies in our photo album.

'Cash' x 'Lana' litter

This litter was a long time in the planning and we were delighted when it finally happened. 

Through mating Am Ch Hybulls Pay on Demand (Cash) - see left and below - and our own Banobrae Half Your Luck (Lana) - see above - we have brought together two exciting pedigrees featuring some of the finest bloodlines in the United States and also in Australia.. Dogs from the renown Blackslate Kennels in the USA feature strongly behind Lana and Cash with the great Am.Sp. Int. Ch. Blackslate`s Boston Blackie Gold ROM featuring in both sides of both pedigrees. Thank you Larry and Deena Hyers for allowing us to use this wonderful boy.

Cash is a 26" tall red dog and weighs around 60 kilograms in show condition. A very well balanced dog overall, Cash's outstanding qualities include his superb head, calm and fearless temperament, lovely mouth with wide underjaw and almost level bite, and his excellent front assembly with excellent lay back of shoulder and a good length of upper arm.

Cash was just over a year old when his "special"  career  in the United States began and just over three years old when he retired. He was the No.8 Bullmastiff in the US in 2005 and the No. 4 Bullmastiff in 2006. In those two years at the National Bullmastiff Specialties, he was also awarded 3rd Award of Merit in 2005 and the 2nd Award of Merit in 2006. Cash moving

Banobrae Half Your Luck "Lana" is from our first litter in 2006 (see above). Due to a shoulder joint damage as a young puppy that left her with a limp, Lana has not been shown. She is a lovely big bitch with a short back, level topline good angulation, a beautiful headpiece, and the sweetest temperament imaginable. Lana is hip scored (L1:R1 = 2) and DNA profiled.

Unfortunately only two bitch puppies from the litter survived and we kept both of them and are very pleased with how they have matured.:
