This is the
website of TiaraRebel Bullmastiffs, owned by
Darrell & Robyn Armstrong in South East Queensland. We have owned
Bullmastiffs since 1995 and have come to love and adore the breed.
Darrell learnt about the Bullmastiff
from dog books that he read throughout his childhood and wanted to own one
for many years. In 1994 after seeing Bullmastiffs road tested on a
lifestyle program, we contacted the Secretary of the Bullmastiff Club in
Victoria where we were living at the time and attended a local show. After
that, we made serious efforts to find a breeder who would entrust us with
one of their puppies.
First we got Karla, a stunning red
bitch, then along came Bronson an awesome fawn dog, you can find out more
about them on this site and the rest, (as 'they' say), is history! We
never bred from them due to the lack of space and facilities where we lived
at the time plus various health issues that they both suffered, probably
due to our lack of knowledge and experience with the breed.
Years later after suffering the loss of
Karla then not long after, Bronson we decided to look for another
Bullmastiff. In 2003 we obtained our foundation bitch, a brindle girl
with the most amazing outgoing temperament you could ever want in a
Bullmastiff. She had a lot we could improve on but we wanted her mostly for
her colour and bloodlines. Our foundation dog came to us mid-2003 he was
the reddest of red and thanks to Baron we have the best Bullmastiff heads
we could ever wish for.
An important thing that someone told us
was not to double up on faults, I guess reading the Bullmastiff Breed
Standard and becoming familiar with that was a lesson well learnt.
In 2005 our first litter was born - wow
what an exciting time that was!! Stressful when they were being born but so
amazing and exciting watching them grow and
develop; then total and complete sadness sending them off to their new
forever homes! An exciting event from this litter was Asta
who was our first ever export to Sweden! We will forever be grateful for
the opportunity and developed a wonderful friendship. We were blessed with
owners from all over the country.
I won't go into the details of the other
litters as you can see them on the Litters Pages. With each litter born we
have learnt something new and its incredible to see them grow,
develop, make their owners happy and appreciative that they were born! Some
people even came back for a second pup from the next litter! Its wonderful to catch up with
them again, months or years later and we can always pick up on their little
quirks and idiosyncrasies
from their parents and grandparents.
Many people say
Bullmastiff's are very "moreish", once
you have one you need more. We have found that statement to be so true, one Bullmastiff just doesn't seem to be enough!!!
That must be how we ended up with seven dogs as I write this!
We hope you enjoy your visit and learn
about our much adored Bullmastiffs. If you have any questions about
our dogs or the breed in general, please don't hesitate to email us!
