My name is Roberta Pavoll ,and now reside in
Vernon, New Hampshire with a bunch of great big lovable
English Mastiffs. I
guess I inherited my love of dogs from my Mom, who drove around New
York City, feeding many of the hungry strays. After marrying and
moving to Fair Lawn, New Jersey, I still had several mixed breeds,
but wanted a large intimidating, but not trigger happy dog to be
around and protect my then four year old son. Off to the
Teterboro Animal Shelter I went and shrinking in the back of a
run was the biggest dog I had ever seen. His name was Max, an eight
year old poorly bred Mastiff that was given up by his master
who was too ill to care for him anymore. After two weeks of nursing
him back to health, I was lucky enough to bring him home. Max was
everything and more of any dog I had ever owned and I made a promise
to myself that when I was in a position of my life, I would buy a
well bred English Mastiff; hence Ruby. Ruby
came from Ohio and little did I know that she would grow up to be
the big winner of so many important dog shows.
Best of Opposite Sex at Westminster, an Award of Merit at
Westminster, Best of Opposite Sex at
and many other Best Of Breed wins. Ruby looked a lot like her dad,
Greiner Hall Zechariah and was bred to Zech's brother, Ch. Greiner
Hall Jedadiah to produce my Ch. Diamond Dan Gem Of
Jersey and my Ch. Twinkle Toes Gem Of Jersey.
I had such fun with Danny and Twinkie, but was so proud when Twinkle
took Best Of Opposite Sex, like her Mom Ruby and at the same
Westminster, Danny took an Award Of Merit, like Ruby. Yes I am very
proud of them but more than that I so enjoyed living life with them.
Sadly all three have passed away with Ruby living the longest, until
thirteen, but I am blessed with grandchildren, Ch.
Greeson’s Edward The Unready and Ch. Gem Of
Jerseys The Big Monte- CGC,TDIA. Edward had won an Award Of
Merit at Westminster 2005 and Monte has touched the hearts and minds
of so many people in need. As an important therapy dog, Monte has
given love and peace to many in their last hours of life and
happiness to many who were ill and in need of unconditional hugging
and love. The pedigrees I have been so lucky to have in my mastiffs
are from the older Greiner Hall, Bredwardine, Candeans and Arcineaga
lines. Beautiful heads, toplines and overall mastiff type is what I
strive to continue and produce. Of course great temperament,
soundness and longevity go hand in hand with a magnificent looking
dog. All dogs used in my breeding program are health tested and must
have outstanding solid temperaments. It has been a long and
wonderful journey with these magnificent dogs, and though I am
getting older, I cannot imagine my life without them. I hope to be
able to preserve these old lines and continue to appreciate the
beautiful look they command.
