Royal Oaks Mastiffs

It was after much study and thoughtful consideration that we chose
predominately Greco and Groppetti lines. Mrs. Greco and her friend Mrs.
Funk were ahead of their time in their careful and scientific breeding
program. Through their selective breeding, only Mastiffs exhibiting the
best qualities were allowed to reproduce. These ladies produced healthy
and refined Mastiffs and helped set the standard for Mastiffs today.

*Greco's Hollesley Medicine Man was regarded by many as the finest
Mastiff of all time. He was Best of Breed on four occasions at the famous
Cruft's Show. He is included in our current line.

The Groppetti lines are historic. Wonderfully dedicated, Patty Groppetti
has produced some of the finest and most lauded Mastiffs of all time.
Working tirelessly to better the breed, her claim that all of today's great
Mastiffs have at least a portion of her line is true without a doubt. Patty
Groppetti's efforts are greatly appreciated by everyone who loves the breed.

From her comes
*Groppettis World Champion, the great Wallon, the only
Mastiff to ever be awarded the honor twice. Judge/Author Marie Moore
once wrote, 'Wallon is the most perfect Mastiff I have ever seen'.  
Also included in our line is the American and English Champion
*Arciniega's Lion of Bredwardine,  sired by Wallon. *Awarded Best of Breed
while competing with 156 other Mastiffs in America, he was exported to
England. There he became the #1 Mastiff in England for two consecutive

These impressive Mastiffs as well as many other
Champions are ancestors of our current line.

We are thankful for the efforts of breeders before us who produced the
lines we now have. Oddly, it is here in the Midwest that these exceptional
Mastiff  breeders began these lines;
it seems fitting that these lines have remained here.
