Orion Farms is located in the beautiful countryside of Carroll County, Maryland. Over a decade ago, we purchased our first American Mastiff, Shiva, from Flying W Farms as a family pet and immediately fell in love with this amazing breed. At the end of the year, we decided to add another extra-large family member to love.
As fate would have it, we didn't just bring another American Mastiff home but were honored to be selected by Frederick Wagner of Flying W Farms, the founder of this breed, as the third breeder in the country to help develop this magnificent dog. We have been involved with the American Mastiffs since 1999, and we pride ourselves on supporting the mission of the American Mastiff Breeders Council "to protect, preserve and promote the true purebred American Mastiff." In doing so, we strive to provide the best family pet possible. We have developed a breeding line whose foundations are in Flying W but also extend to other approved American Mastiff lines such as Deepwood Acres, Hidden Acres and Sycamore Creek Ranch. This provides for a variety in bloodlines that create a healthy family pet. As you make the important decision to adopt an American Mastiff, be sure to do your research to determine if this is the right dog for you. If it is, you, too, will fall in love as we did years ago.
Several years ago, we were fortunate enough to have Kathy Dutterer come on board as our kennel manager and trainer. As an owner of American Mastiffs and a trainer with years of experience with breeds of all kinds, she is an invaluable resource for us and our customers. In addition, she owns Live Life Large, a company which produces specialty items for giant breeds such as collars, leashes, dog backpacks and more. In this way, we offer a complete package of advice and training for your new family member.
