Nitschke was nick named "Hot Chocolate" as an infant for his interesting "mocha" color, along with his feisty, hot temper.

He was quick to become the TOP DOG among his ten siblings inside the whelping box.

Such exciting litter this was and what an outstanding puppy "Hot Chocolate" was to raise for the first eight weeks. A gentle and kind baby bully with the spirit of a Champion right from the get go.

Hot Chocolate would soon become "Nitschke" after one of football's greatest.

"Fun" is the first thing that comes to mind when Nitschke is mentioned. He is always sure to make you smile, working the entire room until all eyes are on him.

Like the rest of his siblings, Nitschke was very intelligent and extremely focused. He worked in obedience thru his adolescence and quickly proved his ability without much effort. This puppy was a dream to work with... he was always looking ahead to the next task, ready and willing to learn.


Nitschke's gentle heart allows for his awesome "mamma's boy" personality to shine thru as he cuddles up for couch snuggling with his owners.

This boy carries with him a body of extreme soundness and potential. His physique is that of an All-Star ready to take on any event. Nitschke is an athlete, a scholar and a heart stealer.

Enjoying everything from Puppy agility classes to chasing the garden hose, Nitschke has a personality to melt any heart.
Nitschke quickly grew up into a "real" bullmastiff... his astonishing depth of chest and intimidating look-right-thru-you stare has him owning the land he walks on. Nitschke's peaceful, confident soul hasn't changed from the day he was "Hot Chocolate" pushing around his littermates as just a wee one.


Delaware Valley Regional Bullmastiff Specialty Show (benched)

At his very first shows in Fort Washington, PA, Nitschke was awarded the 12-18 month class win during the DVBC weekend Regional Specialty Show. He came home with ribbons from all four days of showing.

 Nitschke boldly took home two major wins the following weekend in his home town of Boston, MA!!

Nitschke's rear substance and drive along with his beautifully square structure impressed us all as he wow'd the judges at under 12 months old.

He had an extremely impressive show career finishing his AKC Championship in just a few weekends!

Nitschke boldly took home 3 Major wins, two from the puppy class!

WOW! Congratulations Nitschke and Tim....
