Welcome to the Optimus Bullmastiffs Website.....
I hope you enjoy my dogs and that you find what you are looking for. If I can be of any help please feel free to contact me.
My aim is to breed quality Bullmastiffs that are both sound in movement and temperament and are a true representative of the Bullmastiff breed. I have been involved with Bullmastiffs for over 20 years, and I am very proud to have bred and / or owned the Top Bullmastiff 1999, 2004, 2013 & 2014. Top Bitch 2002, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2013 & 2015. Top Puppy 2005 & 2012. Top Bullmastiff Brood Bitch 2006 & 2015.
I have also won Best of Breed at Crufts 2006 and Best Bitch at Crufts 2003 and 2009.
UK and Hungarian Champion Optimus Franklin is WW11 after taking Best of Breed at the World Dog Show 2011, he is the first UK bred Bullmastiff to become a World Champion. Franklin's litter sister "Scarlet" - UK Champion Optimus Scarlet is the 3rd generation of bitches to gain her title.
During August 2013 and within a week of each other Scarlet’s daughters; litter sisters - Optimus Labelle and Optimus Alicia JW (who was top Bullmastiff puppy 2012) have followed in their mother's footsteps becoming the 4th generation of Champion bitches here at Optimus.
2013 ended on a high for us with "Mac" - Ch Old Manila’s Whisky Mac For Optimus JW becoming Top Bullmastiff 2013, Ch Optimus Alicia JW was Top Bullmastiff Bitch and Mac's daughter Stoneglad Rumour Has It - Top Puppy (All breeds).
We had a great start to 2014 with "Mac" - January saw him winning Reserve Best In Show at Boston and on February 1st he was crowned UK Bullmastiff of the year 2014 at the B.O.T.Y.
At the end of 2014 Mac's success in the Show Ring put him top of the Working Group and overall #2 Top Dog - All Breeds.
At the World Dog Show 2015, Mac & Scarlet's daughter Ch Optimus Rhondda JW became an Italian Champion and followed in the footsteps of her uncle Franklin to become only the second UK bred Bullmastiff to gain a World Winner title. We are very proud to be the only UK Bullmastiff breeder to have bred 2 World Winners
To top it all my home bred bitch Ch Optimus Holly (pictured) was the Bullmastiff Bitch CC record holder with 22 CC's until her record was beaten in September 2016 by another home bred Optimus Champion - her great granddaughter Rhondda.
I have based my breeding on the famous Oldwell lines and hope to do this historic kennel proud in maintaining the true type of Bullmastiff.
Optimus dogs have also competed in Obedience, very rare for a Bullmastiff, but in the correct home it can be achieved and my dogs have also competed in Agility. I hope you enjoy looking at my dogs and can appreciate what I am trying to achieve with the breed. I only breed when I am looking for something which I feel will improve the Bullmastiff.
I'm an approved Championship judge for the Bullmastiff and have undertaken appointments in the UK and Europe awarding CC’s and CAC’s respectively. During 2012 I also had the pleasure of judging in the USA.
