"Where Size Meets Soundness"
I bought my first mastiff in 1974, at the age of 16. Living in Arkansas I never saw another mastiff until I moved to Maryland to go to college. His name was SOLOMON OF IRON HILLS. He was sired by CH TIBERIAS OF KISUMU. Eve Olsen (now Eve Olsen Fisher) of Willowledge kennels liked him and used him at stud and it was all downhill from there. I finished Solomon's championship and got a brood bitch from Eve. Her name was WILLOWLEDGE LIL MS SASSAFRAS and she whelped my first litter in 1977.
In 1988 I campaigned CH IRON HILLS WARWAGON (Dave). He was my first No#1 ranked mastiff. He broke the breed point record at the time and still today is the ALL TIME TOP PRODUCER OF CHAMPIONS. He was followed by Tyson, Posey, and Butler. All reached No#1 status and broke many records along the way.
I have endeavored over the last 23 years to breed the finest specimens of the breed presented in the finest condition. We OFA and CERF all of our breeding stock and fully guarantee all of our puppies. I am very proud that when you look behind most of the top dogs in the country over the last twelve years YOU WILL FIND THE IRON HILLS NAME.
