Banyon Mastiffs was founded in 1972 with the purchase of our foundation mastiff bitch, Ch. Willowpoint's Sixpence, sired by the famous Ch. Tiberias of Kisumu. "Penny", as she was called, was the Best of Opposite Sex winner at the 1974 MCOA National Specialty at 2 years of age. The above photo is Ch. Willowpoint's Sixpence and her sire, Ch. Tiberias of Kisumu, who was owned by Bruce and Marilyn Chapman.
We believe breeding is an art, and are constantly attempting to better the mastiff breed as a whole. Consistency in breed type, sound structure, true breed temperament, fluid movement and sound genetics are all characteristics in which our breeding program is based.
Our site is navigable to both fellow breeders and also potential future mastiff owners. It is designed to provide education on all aspects of the breed and our specific accomplishments and goals. Please feel free to follow the links above to learn more.
