Sires & Dams

Bred for correct type, historic large size, intelligence, temperament, health and genetic soundness, the internationally known Tibetan Mastiffs of DRAKYI are noted pioneers of breed and obedience records, and through decades and generations of involvement are continuing to add noteworthy wins as evidenced by their Best in Show's, Group placements, new Champions of Record, National and Regional Specialty winners, and Obedience Title holders both in the U.S. and abroad.

We take pride in providing assistance and education to all TM owners to help insure that each and every one of our dogs reach their full potential with their families in a happy home. We credit our continuing success to a sound health and genetic-based breeding program that incorporates generation after generation of the very best quality Tibetan Mastiffs found throughout the world today. DRAKYI Tibetan Mastiffs are provided correct nutrition and proper socialization in a healthy family atmosphere. All of our breedings are carefully planned with emphasis on pedigree depth, physical compensation, soundness of temperament and structure, and the elimination of any hereditary/genetic defects. As foundational breeders, we are pleased to offer top quality dogs descended from the widest variety of proven bloodlines, year after year.


Here then are some of the sires and dams, past and present, that represent DRAKYI Tibetan Mastiffs.

SIMBA, a seventh generation DRAKYI line-bred dog, has become the focus and foundation of our breeding program, and others around the world.

Simba represents the ideal Tibetan Mastiff as the cover dog for the breed book, The Tibetan Mastiff, Legendary Guardian of the Himalayas, by Rohrer and Flamholtz, and is featured on the breed DVD, "The Magnificent Tibetan Mastiff."

ATMA/ARBA Ch. Cool of Tien-Jen Propagation Center x Formosa Lady

Thee top-winning Best of Breed/Best in Show winner of his day, Dreamer's outstanding type, his classic head and commanding presence in the ring distinguished him in the winner's circle and made him the 1996 ATMA, ARBA, and SKC top winning dog in the breed, the 1997 ATMA National Specialty Best of Breed, and 1997 ATMA Dog of the Year.  Co-bred by Drakyi associate Ronny Hsieh, Dreamer's most profound influences can be traced back through daughters Tabu and Siren (Dreamer x Drakyi Kiranjin). Dreamer was from the first of many Drakyi x Taiwan litters that have revolutionized breeding programs around the world.

Barnes was bred and is co-owned by longtime breeder-friend Charlie Radcliffe of Timberline Tibetan Mastiffs. Barnes, considered by many as the breed ideal, embodies the vision and strengths of the Drakyi breeding program, as seen in  the generations of his ancestors:  Khamba, Anjuli, Anjin, Simba,  Gold Tsunami, Simba, Dreamer and Tabu. A combination of the  finest American and Tibetan lines, his outstanding type and temperament are stamped on his offspring, and typify the qualities found in DRAKYI pedigrees around the world.  Barnes retired as the first TM to take Best of Breed honors at Westminster, and the #1 TM in the breed for 2008.

 Our Tibetan import male at 2 years,  Huā Huā Gōng Zǐ , PLAYBOY

 PLAYBOY began his journey to the West in 2007 after my judging assignment in Anyang, China, from the prized "$600,000.00" bloodline there.  The only dog of his pure Tibetan bloodline to ever be allowed out of China to date, and grandson of the renowned "Hongdo," he was a treasured gift from the respected "Father of the Tibetan Mastiff" in China, my friend and associate, Wang Zhankui of the Tibetan Mastiff Research Center in Gongyi, Henan, China.  And the legacy continues, with PLAYBOY'S first pure Tibetan litter born in 2009, yet another generation showing the authentic Tibetan type prized in native lands. 



Drakyi Dark Dragon

Sno-Lyon Ghengis x Drakyi Ebony Noire 
10-29-2002. OFA GOOD/Hips Normal. 32", 160 lbs. Black

Dragon has the classic, correct guardian temperament that is detailed in history and legends.  He is the first to greet me when  I return home, and the first to insist, "Stay off the property until the master returns."  "That has got to be the largest dog I have ever seen," is a description always given to Dragon by visitors, enhanced by his regal, discerning and accepting demeanor.  His exceptional size and type are seen in all his litters, in a variety  of colors (black, black/tan, blue/tan, red, cream).  In all my years, Dragon is the largest Tibetan Mastiff I have ever seen, with the structure and soundness of a dog half his size.



Buddha King Kong Drakyi  


IABKC/SKC/INT Ch. Sierras' Majestic Mufasa x  Drakyi Baba Yaga
Hips/Elbows Prelimed Normal. 29", 145 lbs. Black/tan.

KING KONG became the #1 producer of AKC Champions in the breed for 2007.  A large, heavy-boned dog of substance and type, his outstanding head is the hallmark of his attributes, and rarely seen in the breed. 


Drakyi Druk Dru


Drakyi Dark Dragon x Aliana de Yuwenchi
12-25-2005. OFA GOOD/Hips Normal.  28", 150 lbs. Black/tan.

DRU is a spectacular young male, the perfect combination of his giant Drakyi sire and his Tibetan import dam. His bone density, substance and structure are unsurpassed, combined with a correctly textured and richly pigmented coat.   Add to that his large, imposing head, correct type, temperament  and  classic Asian expression, all traits he is producing consistently in the litters he is siring.  Dru is the top producing dog for 2009 with numerous offspring enjoying success in the show ring, and sire to our premiere exhibition dog, PRINCE.
