Genesis Mastiffs, White Lake Michigan


We have shared our home with this wonderful breed since 1992


Genesis Mastiffs was founded by Debbie (Beavers) Vanderveer with her first mastiff, Hall of Fame undefeated American Champion CH Banyon's Sheba Spice. This phenominal bitch took points in every show she was entered in and had five finished champions from her only litter of six puppies. Sadly, due to negligence from the veterinarian attending Sheba during whelping, she was unable to have another litter. Sheba was unique as she was certified OFA hips excellent, which was an exceptional quality for Mastiffs in the early 1990's


Here is a picture of Sheba's babies from 1993

Debbie and Bill Vanderveer are very dedicated to improving the mastiff breed and subscribe to and uphold the Mastiff Club of America MCOA ethics standards for selection and breeding. As most reputable breeders and purebred dog owners, Genesis Mastiffs are proponets of breed rescue. We are active members of the Great Lakes Mastiff Rescue and adopted 2 mastiffs, litter mates Sunny and her sister Princess, as MCOA disbanded the national rescue and regional mastiff rescues formed.

In 2003, we decided to get another mastiff that would be a show prospect and met longtime mastiff top breeder Bonnie Faulstich who owns Lyonhurst Mastiffs.
