We are devastated and just wanted to do a short update.
Hopefully E-litter is coming soon, we just keep our fingers crossed for pragnancy, and as soon as we know, we will update official and give more detailed information about it.

You should offer a great loving home, and maybe have interest for shows, or let us bring the dog for shows sometimes. We would prefer if our co-owned dogs lives closer than 300 km from the kennel, but the best home is always the most important.

Xlnt Stars Kennel is totally heartbroken!!
We´ve lost our amazing and beloved boy Falcon :´(
For the moment we have no words at all.. everything will just pause for a while.. we have to try keep on living, even though we almost don't know how to breath without him...
2016-11-21 we refused to say goodbye.. we just said, UNTILL WE MEET AGAIN...
Puppies grow so fast.. C-litter is already 5 weeks old. They eat food (fresh) and have started to check the garden out. Want to keep them all at home ;)
C-litters FGF5 DNA-testresults are here.
You find it under the resultpage.
Xlnt Stars Bellavista got new titles and she is now LT JCH and LV JCH!
We are more than proud of this lovely crazy girl <3
C-litter is born!!
Xlnt Stars C-litter is born 2016-08-02
They came 1 week earlier than expected, at day 56!
9 boys and 4 girls
One little boy was to small and premature to make it, so we only had the chance to give him love for couple of hours :(
The other 8 boys and 4 females, are strong little ones so far.
Mother Tequila is a perfect mother taking really good care of them all, like thats what she have done forever, and we are so proud of her.
Friday 2016-07-08 we did ultrasound at Tequila! We did also send it live at Facebook, where the movie can be found at Terese Profile =)
The vet did just tell us
"oh my, there is a lot of them and I don't even try to count them."
"It´s not usual to get that many in one picture"
so now lets wait and see.
We are sooo over the moon about it, our sweet Tequila and our lovely Falcon are suppose to be parents in august!! Happiness!!
Tequila is mated with Falcon!
Hopefully our C-litter will be born in August 2016
We are aware that our kennel name and homepage has been mentioned in a Finnish Bullmastiff group on Facebook. The woman who started the discussion there has informed us herself, and we´re OK with it.
Some short information:
We decided to start the DNA testing of our dogs (longhair gene) and take our responsibility for our own dogs immediately, after we got the information about a litter with longhaired bullmastiffs in Sweden born 2015
That litter is closely related to our beloved Falcon, who was the first tested dog at our kennel. He turned out to be a carrier of the FGF5 gene.
Our import Perla has also a common dog with Falcon and the litter with longhaired puppies, in her pedigree. She is also tested as a carrier of the gene. Perla will not be used for breeding because of hips and elbows, and it has nothing to do with the longhaired gene.
We have also tested all our other dogs, thoose here at home and thoose at co homes, and they were all clear from the longhaired gene.
Very important to know about the FGF5 gene is that dogs who are carriers or even longhaired, are not sick, or have any decease related to this gene.
The only reason we want to find out about our dogs, is to know what we breed. We can use a carrier for breeding, but will only to a clear partner. This could never give longhaired puppies, but could give more carriers.Thats why we also decided that we will always test the whole litters in future when coming from a clear-carrier combination.
We think this information is important both for us and a buyer who wants to breed in the future, everyone makes their own choice but you should always know all the facts and if we choose to include carriers in our breeding program we will take the responsibility and be beware of whats next.
2 clear parents, gives only clear puppies
1 carrier and 1 clear parent, could give clear and carrier puppies
2 carriers could give clear, carriers and affected (longhaired) puppies
thats why we won't ever use 2 carriers.
also check out this beautiful and well worked picture by Milla Strandheim (biggest thanks dear) about how the genes is inherited (in percent)
Xlnt Stars Kennel decided to take OUR responsibility for OUR breeding. It doesn't mean that we judge anyone else for what they do.
we want to avoid longhaired bullmastiff in our litters. With this test we can.
We will make a seperate information-page about the FGF5 gene here on our website later. That has been in our thoughts already but we've been to busy for the moment.
We have been thinking about it for a long time but now, because of the information on Facebook, we felt it was necassary to speed up the process and get some information out there.
Hope this makes things clear for those who wonders. Everyone is of course welcome to contact us with any further questions.
