Always interested in the various mastiff breeds, we started our search 17 years
ago for the perfect mastiff to add to our family. After extensive research,
we decided upon the American Mastiff, developed by Fredericka of Flying W Farms.
Our first American Mastiff was our beautiful "Duchess of Deepwood"
from Flying W Farms.
After being screened and approved to be breeders by the American Mastiff
Breeders Council (AMBC) in 2003, we purchased our brindle male "Deepwood Diesel"
from Orion Farms. He traces directly back to
Flying W Farms foundation stock.
Over time, we have added additional dogs to our program from Flying W Farm, Hidden Acres Farm, and
Capell Creek Ranch, as well as retained puppies from our own litters.
Our dogs live with us and are members of our family. They have been extensively
socialized and even accompany us on camping vacations! Everywhere we go,
people are impressed with our dogs' looks and their fantastic behavior.
Then once they meet and get to know our dogs, they are entranced by their
loving dispositions and especially with their gentleness toward children.
One of the most rewarding things we've done is to get our male
Deepwood Diesel certified as a therapy dog through
Therapy Dogs International (TDI). He is now able to visit
nursing homes, children's hospitals, veteran's hospitals - anywhere that
accepts Therapy Dogs!
We think the American Mastiff is the perfect mastiff breed! They are truly
