Bullmastiffs in Russia
Russian breeders have been accumulating the practical experience of working with this breed since 1989.
V. Morossov (Tula) was the first who brought Bullmastiffs to Russia and started breeding them. He acquired a red-colored dog, called ACE (born 19 May 1986), LOF 001618, and later brought a brindle bitch called Aska v. Knohenbeiser (born 28 Sept 1988), SHSB436571, from Yugoslavia. After some time Irina Ilicheva acquired a bitch
Osa z Budi Odi
(born 27 July 1987), 3928, from Poland. Then M.G. Butirskaia brought the sibling bitch Oda z Budi Odi, and in 1990 G.E. Rhozenbaum got a bitch from the Austrian kennel called
Golden Girl (born 24 May 1989), VDH89/013 0253. On that year T. and I. Dubrovski acquired a dog
Sarejevo (born 11 Jan 1988), 360ZKC, and a bitch Jezebel (born 10 Apr 1990), 356ZKC, from Zimbabwe.
In 1991 the bitch Osa z Budi Odi owned by Irina Ilicheva gave birth to the first litter in Russia.
