The Bullmastiff Breed Council's breed health co-ordinator has put together a brief online survey to help gather information on the broader health of the breed, please see the link below. The survey is anonymous and is open to everyone worldwide. The only requirement is that the dogs you are referring to are pure bred Bullmastiffs.
It shouldn't take long to complete, please answer as honestly as you can.
Many thanks in advance for taking the time to complete this - Magda Porter - Bullmastiff breed health co-ordinator.

As a follow up to the statement below concerning the publication of the Breed Council meeting minutes in our last Year Book before they had been approved, I am pleased to advise that on the 23/04/2023, at the combined AGM and Breed Council meeting the minutes were passed by The British Bullmastiff League, The Bullmastiff Society of Scotland and The Southern Bullmastiff Society as a true and accurate account of the minutes of the meeting held on 26/11/22. (The Northern Bullmastiff Club voiced no opinion to avoid any undue influence. The Association & Welsh and West delegates did not attend the meeting).
This means the minutes published in our Year Book remain a true reflection of this meeting. As I stated previously this was an error on our part and they should not have been published without being approved by the Breed Council, which once again, I apologise for any upset caused and it will not happen again.
Thank you to everyone who has purchased our Year Book this year, we have had a record number of sales.
Secretary, Northern Bullmastiff Club
Dear Members and Bullmastiff fraternity.
Our Year Books were printed and delivered to me the week before Crufts, they were taken to Crufts for Members and the Bullmastiff fraternity to purchase. This year the Chairman of the Breed Council, Billy Brittle, provided an article about the Breed Council Perspective and as we have had permission from the Breed Council to reproduce the minutes of Breed Council Meetings in our newsletters etc. since a meeting in October 1994, we decided to add the last set of minutes which had been sent through to our Club’s delegates on the 29/12/2022, to give our Members an insight into how the meetings are run and what topics are covered surrounding our breed; names or derogatory issues were omitted and these minutes were added as a continuation of the article from Billy Brittle, as he states ‘it is not a secret society and minutes and accounts are freely available to the member of any constituent club’
We only realised that the minutes we had added needed to be approved when the Secretary of the Breed Council, Pamela Jeans-Brown, brought it to my attention at Crufts. I apologised as we had not realised and it was a mistake on our part, and I said so at the time, as I am repeating now, if the minutes are not approved as a true reflection of the meeting, I will make an amendment in our next Year Book, put a statement in the dog paper and on our website / social media page.
