Bill faced puppy mills and scams; receiving dogs from out of state proved to hit his pocket hard as they were ill and damaged dogs. Trial and error with countless hours online doing his research and speaking to other people along the way he has built his knowledge on bulldogs and breeding. Sadly, Bill’s search for the perfect bulldog had many obstacles!
We begin training pups from the start. soon as the pups are up and moving around, they are:
1. Litter box trained
2. Dewormed every 2 weeks
3. First shots
4. Full health check and health certificate by a veterinarian
5. All pups are AKC registered.
Every pup is equally handled within a family environment and loved with plenty of kisses. They are raised and interact with both parents whenever possible. Their bedding is changed daily, toys are washed, and they are hand cleaned when needed. All the puppies are fed together in their own dishes to reduce the chance of food aggression.
Through his endless searching, he was able to obtain a handsome boy named, Brock. He came from a show breeder several states away and drove out to see Brock in person.
Shortly after, Bill had a female shipped from out west and received Khaleesi. Her overall health was good, but she had a few scars on her leg that the breeder never disclosed.
Khaleesi was a sweet girl and loved getting attention and being spoiled. She had 3 litters and was a great mother. She was retired in 2020 to a loving home being the only dog in the house to be spoiled.
Since Khaleesi, Bill has made a huge effort to work with the show breeder he got Brock from and has gotten a couple more from them and working with other connections from that breeder. Genetics and bloodlines are now the foundation for his breeding program.
His first breeding proved to be very educational. The mother was found to have significant health issues and should have never been bred. He had acquired the mother at the age of 3 from a breeder who had one litter with her. Seven weeks into the pregnancy Bill and his Vet's found out she had a kidney disease.
He did everything he could to save the mother and she recovered well. The 2 surviving pups were adopted together to the perfect home. From that experience Bill had his other female tested and found she wouldn’t be appropriate for breeding either. She was then fixed and adopted to a loving home. Since then health testing has become part of his breeding practices.
Bill maintains contact with each family who purchases a puppy from him. He enjoys seeing them develop into grown bulldogs, thriving with their families. It's a comfort to know that each puppy lives with such great families and is being loved just as much.
Pups are named for the purpose of identifying each one however it is understood that their new families will most likely rename their puppy of choice. Therefore, when registering with AKC, Bill doesn’t complete the registration with a name thus allowing each family to complete it with the name of their choice.
