We are located on the Gulf coast of Central Florida in the Tampa Bay area. Our love for the Mastiff Breed began back in the early 90's while living on Long Island. We happened to chance upon one at a local shop laying majestically at the front counter. It was the shopkeeper's personal pet and loyal friend. We knew then the Mastiff would be in our future.
Since then, we've made lots of friends and met many wonderful people that share our love and passion for this magnificent breed of dog. Dogs that we are now proud to call family. We named our mission to better the breed "Yabig" after our first beloved Mastiff, otherwise known as "Oh, Yabig Dog Yaaaaa". Yabig's life was tragically cut short due to an anesthesia accident. He filled our hearts so completely. He was all we hoped he could be and more! Please do your research. Mastiffs and anesthesia are a tricky game!
My husband Adam and I along with our daughter Alexis are happy to be sharing our lakefront home situated on almost 3 acres with several Mastiffs, kitty cats, a few rabbits, chickens, a pair of pygmy goats, fish and a snake. I hope you take the time to look around and learn more about Yabig Mastiffs, our mission, goals, current news and past accomplishments. Please feel free to contact us with any questions or just to say hello. Don't forget to check our show news to find out where we will be showing next. When we are able, our dogs are proudly owner handled. When we are not, we entrust Maria Devier and Jeff Brucker as our handlers. They do a wonderful and loving job with our babies in and out of the ring. We'd love to see you ringside and meet and chat after the show and have you meet our dogs!
Regards- Nikole "Nikki" Yahre
