We are the Whobrey family of Southern Indiana. We welcome you to come on in and enjoy our Hoosier Hospitality! My husband Ed and I have two sons who now have families of their own. Raising them was our most important job. We now have three grandchildren to spoil and enjoy. We live in the country, landscaped with beautiful red pines we planted as seedlings. My husband and I share a deep love of animals and they have always been an important part of our lives. As a child growing up we both  rescued dogs and still do. They made great family members and left us with many wonderful memories. Our dogs are pets and companions first. They are happiest when they are with us, whether it be inside our home napping or outside playing on our seven acres.

When I saw my first mastiff some years ago, I was in awe of their massive size and gentle beauty. I knew someday I would own one of these beautiful creatures. Little did I realize they would own me....  When we brought home our first Mastiff it was quite a change for us; at the time our four-legged family consisted of two quarter horses, two yorkies and a black lab. Mya grew quickly and we soon realized our girl needed a playmate and companion. It took us two years to find our next mastiff, Ryder. They were best buds.

I had always wanted to show dogs, but my work schedule didn't afford the time. My schedule has since changed and I was encouraged to jump in the ring, and that is what I did! It has been an incredible journey. I have met many nice people and have made several good friends. Ryder (RIP) finished and earned his AKC championship, his national and International puppy and adult championships, received first in his class at the national specialty in Denver in 2006  and earned his CGC and TDI certifications.. We were so proud of this boy and he will live forever in our hearts.

We have learned the importance of health screening, (OFA-HIPS &  ELBOWS, PATELLA ,CARDIAC, THYROID, CERF, VWD, CYSTINURIA & PRA DNA). Health testing is not a guarantee but is important to do what we can to protect and ensure the health, soundness, longevity and good temperament of this noble breed.

We  have continued to learn and love our breed more all the time.  Cali is a working therapy dog who, like Ryder always did, has brought much joy to those she visits in hospice. After Cali achieved her AKC CH, CGC, TDI and passed all of the health testing done on her, she was bred one time to BISS CH Brite Star's Dual Image, CGC, TDI (Bodi). Now we are enjoying watching our own puppies thrive and grow and continue to learn and to love them more every day.

We hope you enjoyed our Hoosier hospitality be sure to come back for new updates.

Thanks for visiting,
