About Tondra Bullmastiffs
In 1972 Gary Anderson purchased his first bullmastiff Becca. She was a great dog and got
the family hooked on the breed. In 1982 after a long search for a female to show and to
start his breeding program with we ended up with Ch.Arborcest A Ray Of Sunshine
"Bandit". "Bandit" was the first bitch to win multiple Group 1's and
in 1 year she was the Number 1 bitch in the country, a Top 10 bullmastiff, and she was the
Number 1 producing dam. She produced some wonderful dogs that are in many pedigrees of
winning dogs today. She was the mother of Ch. Tundra's Pinewood Baron 1990 ABA National
Specialty winner from the veterans class. Her movement and show attitude still shows
through many generations later. The kennel name Tondra came about because of the cold
