DeVersailles Bullmastiffs is located in the countryside of Southeastern Quebec, about 25 minutes from the Vermont Border.
We first became interested in showing dogs in the middle 1970’s. We bought our first show dog –a Great Dane- in 1976. This started us on a lifelong love affair with dogs. While raising a family, the show ring was put on the back burner, but we always had at least one dog in our home. Years passed (30 of them) and we were ready to pick up our forsaken passion for the show ring.
For the next two years all of our spare time was dedicated to researching the breeds and visiting the show ring. In 2008, we bought our first Bullmastiff from Helene and Andreas Hansmann of Knatchbull Bullmastiffs. Charm’s beauty and sweet, loving personality assured us that there was no better breed for us.
As everyone who has ever owned one of these noble creatures knows, one is not enough. A year and a half later we welcomed Jazz, Charm’s half sister, into our home. Over the course of the next few years came Bets, Chivas, Perri and Zen, Boomer and Freya.
