established in 1978


MQH Kennels has been raising Old English Mastiffs since 1978 . During that period we have tried to contribute our best efforts to make the breed a viable extension of its original working domain. That is to say we have been driven to breed Mastiffs that are socially stable, stout, sound, and supremely statured. Our breeding program has produced MCOA National Specialty Class Winners including Best Puppy in Show and MCOA Sweepstakes winners. We are currently in the sixth generation of MQH Kennel Champions. MQH bred Mastiffs have also been the recipients of MCOA Health awards. Our Mastiffs have become central to the efforts of top quality breeders around the planet.We have a generational lineage of OFA Hips , OFA Elbows, and CERFs. Our pedigrees are current with a well planned foundation from the best pedigrees of the past .

We selected the Mastiff as a breed of choice because we felt, more so than any other giant breed, they are extremely hardy, well mannered, tractable, and temperamentally stable. Our initial assessment has not left us wanting. We have thoroughly enjoyed the last twenty years shared with our companion dogs and look forward to many more rewarding experiences with them.

In our search for a breed that would compliment our lifestyle at our ranch, we found the Patterdale Terrier. The Patterdale is essentially a small terrier bred to hunt vermin. It is used to destroy pests that are damaging to food stores and vectors of disease. We imported our original two bitches from England and have been in love with them ever since. This breed is an excellent household pet and for a terrier, is extremely well mannered. The Patterdale is not excessively hyper and does not demand attention to the point of distraction. Kind and gentle with people their loyal trustworthy nature stands them in good stead when it comes to alerting their owners concerning strangers at the door. Totally fearless in demeanor, they are commonly seen hunting, trials such as go-to-grounds and events where their ability to pursue game is displayed. We are very pleased to present this exciting new breed as an alternative to some of the more standard smaller sized canine companions you may be familiar with.
