Quality Not quantity has always been our goal at Kiokee mastiffs We bred selectively and only for the purpose of breed improvement. We are proud to have owned and shown over 7 generations of Mastiffs and have proudly laid the foundation for our next generations of Champions. Not all of our puppies grow up to be show dogs; some are beloved pets and companions which we feel is our greatest achievement. We believe that all dogs should be bred primarily for overall health, temperament, trainability, intelligence, and sociability and conformation will follow. What good is a beautiful dog that you can't live with, train, or control?

We support the spaying and neutering of pet quality dogs; a pet does not need a sex life to be happy! All pet quality puppies are placed and sold with a spay/neuter clause in our contracts and no puppy is sold/placed without a contract. We health test and certify all our dogs and bred only to dogs of the same Caliber. All dogs have the minimum OFA's of hips & elbows, CERF eye exams, and are PRA DNA Clear. I also do OFA of hearts, thyroid, and do VWB testing. I have also recently added to my dogs OFA of patellas and cysturnia testing of all males. All puppies are placed with a 2-year health & temperament guarantee against genetic defects.
