TOSA EUROPE today is a new E-magazine dedicated to the Tosa breed. In our modest opinion there is no general source of information on a regular basis about the Tosa in Europe. Our plans are to issue a bi-monthly Internet magazine featuring the latest news on as much facets of the breed as possible. Breeding, showing, breeders introductions, owners-stories, studdogs, famous & historic dogs etc.

We want to bring you the most interesting news on our fantastic breed, so if you want to be up to date on Europe’s Tosa news then subscribe to our FREE newsletter. The newsletter will be published in English but Google Translator translates the newsletter in your language!

He obtained the 1st place in his Class (Young Dogs) at both shows. Congratulations to Udo and Heike on these great results!

Beer in LINDA magazine

In the October issue of the glossy magazine LINDA by Linda de Mol, our home-bred Megasthenes Iron Heels, aka Beer (Toshi's Tar Heel x V-Gulch) is featured with a short story told by her owners. 

We are excited that Beer had the honour to be chosen for this article; it was meant to show that dogs with a somewhat "wrong" image in reality often are "just" teddy-bears.

Op 11 april 2010 was Izzy ingeschreven in Ostrava, Tsjechie. Ook hier behaalde hij onder concurrentie de titel Beste Junior.
