Aust Ch Yanoor Tip O The Iceberg (AI)
'Clinton'
Clinton is pictured above at 15 months of age.
A multi Class in Group winner at Championship Show level
His sire is Am. Champion Madigans Doc Holiday (USA).
To date in 2007,'Doc' is the sire of the Mastiff Club of America National Specialty BOB and BOS; BOB at the prestigious UK Crufts show; BOS at the Mastiff Association of UK Championship Show; BOS at the French Mastiff Club Championship Show; BOB and BOS at the qualification only USA Westminster Show; and BISS at the Mastiff Club of Victoria Championship Show.
Almost three years after we met Doc at the Mastiff Club of America Specialty, we finally have a litter sired by him here in Australia.
Australia's first successful frozen litter for Mastiffs!
Clinton's hips are 0/0 and elbows 0/0.
A perfect score!
Fresh, chilled and frozen semen available to approved bitches and owners.

Various Saint Bernard skulls.
Note the slope of upper muzzle and various eye orbit variations, including occipital distortions..
A mastiff should possess a level muzzle and have enough breadth across the muzzle to properly accommodate the 3:5 ratio. A narrow muzzle beam that has great depth, may obtain a 3:5 ratio, but it is incorrect in my view. The canine tooth bone "plate" also adds to the breadth of muzzle structure.

Bump...

Would you sacrifice a perfect rear to get a darn near perfect head?

Black Peter was a mastiff from Holland c1899

Note* depth of lower jaw, eye size and set, ear placement, wrinkle, breadth of skull, truncated muzzle, broad muzzle from stop to finish, muzzle to head circumference ratio,  expression, angle of stop, moderate dewlap and flews etc.




Nice looking dog; thanks for posting this.
