A Passion for Perfection.

Steel Jaw Kennels is owned and operated by Christopher Budd and is provided with in-home Veterinary care 24/7 by Dr. Susan Lewis of All Creatures Animal Clinic. Steel Jaw Kennels is dedicated to producing true top quality Spanish Presa Canarios/Dogo Canarios, registered through Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI) in Puerto Rico (FCPR) and meets the highest standards of the modern Presa/Dogo Canario.Steel Jaw Kennels is a small kennel in Ann Arbor, Michigan dedicated to the preservation and progression of the true Spanish (FCI type) Dogo/Presa Canario. Steel Jaw Kennels is under the constant observation of Dr. Susan G. Lewis D.V.M. (Its great to have a veterinarian for a mother! You get the best care ever!) We are committed to breeding beautiful Dogo’s with solid temperaments! (The type of dog that can be played with by a class of 3rd graders all day and then go home and if someone unwanted comes through that door/window turn into the perfect protector.) This breed is more than just a hobby! They are a love, a passion, and FAMILY. That is what I look for when placing puppies! If I do not have what it is you are looking for right at that time, please feel free to ask my advice! There are not many breeders in this country unfortunately who are breeding these dogs to the true FCI type. But there is a strong group who are, and are doing it very well! I will give you my true opinion of a dog if you ask it. Read More About us
