We began Bush Song Tibetan Mastiff Kennels out of the love and respect we have for this majestic breed. The more my wife and I researched their background, the more in awe we became with their ancient history and various uses as
dictated by man. The Tibetan was and is a fearless guard dog, used not only to guard flocks, but also by the Tibetan monks as gatekeepers to their sacred temples. Hence the names Temple Dog and Gate Dog. Today we appreciate
them for their loyalty, even temperament and companionship.
At Bush Song, we plan a limited breeding program with the overriding aim to breed quality, well loved, true to type Tibetan Mastiffs. We nurture and care for our dogs, investing
a great deal of time in producing well natured, healthy, happy puppies and dogs. Our dogs are a part of our family and as such, spend a proportionate amount of time in the house with us, curious and involved with our day to day activities.
are a small hobby kennel in the Adelaide Hills and have no intention of breeding dogs as a commodity for profit. We are entirely devoted to providing the best life our dogs can possibly have. We love animals, respect their rights as well as the
environment and derive great pleasure from our TM's being a part of this idyllic lifestyle.
Our brood consists of four dogs, three girls and a boy. Our girls are Bonnie, Hannah and Jade. Our tall boy is Argos.
We are tireless
in our efforts to promote and show the breed and have been doing so since 2009 - both locally and interstate. Our original 2 girls - Bonnie and Hannah - come from Champion bloodlines and are Australian Champions in their own right. Along the way
they have had many wins under respected International judges including wins at Adelaide, Melbourne and Canberra Royal Shows.
All our dogs from birth have been under the care of a vet, uniformly immunised, micro chipped, tested for bone structure and
hereditary diseases to ensure they enjoy the best of health from puppy to adulthood. They all undergo puppy and dog training to ensure socialization and a temperament suited to being a family member.
We plan to have beautiful happy puppies available
in the near future to place in loving homes where the intention is to make their beloved puppy a part of their family.
Please feel free to contact us and make a time to visit us and our brood along with the other wildlife with which we share our
home in the Adelaide Hills. We are happy to provide information and answer any questions you may have. We are certain that like us, you can not be in the presence of such a majestic ancient breed and not be completely taken over by them.
love with this breed will spoil you forever.
