4 Years old

At 4 years old having had her 1st litter, she is on top form as a mature Bullmastiff with substance and muscle with a "looking at me attitude"

Holly was the Mother of Ch Optimus Camella JW who was Top Bitch 2006 and Ch Optimus Charlotte of Oldwell who was Top Puppy 2005. She was the most wonderful dog to live with, being very sound in temperament and was an absolutely wonderful mother to her babies.

On 30th August 2011 we sadly said goodbye to Holly, aged 11 years.
