Bandzz Mini BullzState your name, and where your kennel is located.
I am Brandon Michael, the founder of BandZz Mini BullZ. You can find us in Cleveland, OH.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
I breed exotic American Bullies. It’s simple… “The Look” is what inspired me.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
I maintain a mixture of kKibble, and raw throughout the year.

What is your favorite bloodline?
My top three are: Hazeline, Daxline, and the OG Miagi blood.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?
We enjoy getting all of our dogs in the show ring. We also enjoy taking our children to the events, and they even show the dogs. It’s a family affair.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
Knowledge is everything. Do your research before making any major decisions. It’s important to know exactly what you like, and what you are breeding for. Stick to your vision.

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?
The loss of a dog.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
To overcome, stay dedicated and focused on your program. Keep producing awesome dogs. If we are talking studs, having frozen semen stored away might not be a bad idea. Partnering with a reputable vet is also a must.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
I would have to say my boy, Chris Shannon with Savage Bullies, out of Dayton, OH has consistently been a huge help to me. I’ve never spent a penny with him, and he’s been nothing but family to me. Chris has always answered any questions that I might have, and has always steered me in the right direction. He is one of the most solid guys I have met through these bullys.

Tell us about one of your most memorable moments, in 2017 so far.
One of my most memorable moments was attending the North Carolina, War of Exotics show. The building was packed. We caused a traffic jam at our Booth the entire Show. Our female “PikaBoo” took home two first place wins that day as well. It was a great time. This was the first Show our daughter was able to attend.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
Personally, I would like to see more breeders producing show quality micro exotic american bullies. It would also be nice to see more unity in the Bully world. The community could use more leaders teaching the newcomers.

What separates your kennel from the competition?
Our goal is to produce only the best micros, with a complete Bull in mind from the muzzle to the tail. This includes temperament, functionality, conformation, muscle tone, blocky heads, and mean mugs, while keeping them short and compact.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
Any free time that’s not devoted to the dogs, is spent with my Fiancé and our daughter. We try to get her involved in many events and activities. We would not trade these moments for the world.

What motto do you live by?
Family First!

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
It’s a dope magazine, with very informative articles. It’s a great source for breeders to promote their bullys. BGM is our go to magazine for everything bully. It has been an honor. Thank you for reaching out to me!

Delta Bulldogs: English Bulldog Breeder

State your name, your kennel, and where your kennel is located.
My name is Alejandro Ruiz-Gallegos. The name of my kennel is Delta Bulldogs. You can find us in Los Angeles, California.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
I breed English Bulldogs. I fell in love with this breed because they are one of the most loyal dog breeds. They also have a great temperament.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
The typical nutrition for my dogs consist of a raw diet. I feed my dogs 2 lbs of chicken, that my partner grinds for me. With the grinded chicken I mix an egg. I will also include some shredded carrots for the puppies in their diet, as well as add some shredded carrots for my adults throughout the year.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?
I do not currently show any of my dogs. However, I do plan to make my first appearance at the bully expo on the 24th of February, in San Bernardino.

What advice does Delta Bulldogs have for any upcoming breeders?
The only advice I have is to take the time to study the breed. Look for the best lines before you get your foundation dogs. It may take a while, but be patient. Trust me, it will be worth it in the long run.

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?
The most difficult thing people will have to overcome is investing large amounts of money for the right foundation right from the start. Investing will leave a dent in your bank account, but that money will come back. If a person chooses to dodge this obstacle by purchasing low quality dogs, it will end up costing that person more in the future.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
The way to overcome this is to just take time. Be patient and save the money you will need to obtain the best foundation for your kennel. I understand most people are real eager to start. However, it will be worth the wait, once you see the quality that is being produced in your yard.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
When it comes to the bully game I look up to my partner Joel Escobedo, Mickey Neidlinger Edenfield (Mickey’s Bulldogs), and Lisa Jaycox (Edison Bulldogs). These three individuals don’t focus on enhancing their dogs pictures in order to sell their dogs. They take regular cell phone pictures and let their dogs quality speak for themselves.

Tell us about one of Delta Bulldogs main goals going into the year 2018.
One of my main goals for 2018 is to produce dogs that are the true definition of an English bulldog. Dogs that are short, compact, with a lot of wrinkles and no health issues (physically and genetically).

Describe how you would want things, in the bully breed Community, to be 10 years from now.
Ten years from now I want to see a bully community that helps one another. I want to be able to see breeders who have been in the bully game for a long time help those that are just starting out.

What separates Delta Bulldogs kennel from the competition?
Consistency is what separates us from the competition. We produce dogs of the same caliber of quality every single time. That is key to having a successful program.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
I enjoy to playing soccer and riding bmx in my free time. I love being outdoors and staying active.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
I think Bully Girl Magazine is great. I like the fact that they don’t choose to interview only the well established kennels. This gives opportunity for those who aren’t established yet to get their name out there.

South Florida Bully Department: American Bully Breeder | Florida

State your name, and where your kennel is located.
Our kennel is South Florida Bully Department. Our names are Nicole and Joey Santiago. You can find us in Boca Raton, Florida.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
We breed American bullies. Our passion started when we got our first bully. They are loyal, loving, and filled with so much personality. These characteristics are what made us decide that we wanted to breed. We strive to give families our vision of the perfect pet.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
We feed our dogs Merrick Limited Ingredient, and glaze it with coconut oil, which helps keep their coats in amazing condition.

What is your favorite bloodline?
Daxline is our favorite bloodline.

Does South Florida Bully Department currently show any their dogs at the bully shows?
No, we currently do not show our dogs.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
Do your research before getting into breeding. You must learn about the different bloodlines, colors, styles, and find out which one best suits you. This is the easier part. Once you have this figured out you have to do your research on how to breed. You can’t just throw two dogs together and pray for the best. Are you going with an AI or natural? What if your dogs won’t tie? What if you can’t find a vet willing to do an AI? Can you do it yourself? Is your vet willing to do progesterone testing? These are all questions you have to have answer prior to breeding.

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?
We think the most difficult thing for people to overcome is the judgement of others.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
People are not always going to agree with your style or vision of what the perfect dog is. However, you must stay focused and true to your dream. Others may not like it, but its yours and you must stand behind it. If you don’t believe in your dogs than no one will.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
Ed Shepherd, because he was able to create amazing bloodlines in both the American Bully and American Pitbull Terrier communities. He is a pioneer in both breeds, and his bloodline can be found in almost all pedigrees.

Tell us about one of South Florida Bully Department’s main goals going into the year 2018.
One of our main goals is to get in the show ring and show people what we have to offer.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
I would like to see a more of community atmosphere, and not so much drama.

What separates South Florida Bully Department from the competition?
Our kennel is completely based around our family and our dogs are a huge part of it. Our children enjoy learning along with us. They get down and dirty, and love naming each puppy. All of our children have even assisted in the birth of puppies. It’s a family affair. They intend to carry on our dream.

In your own words, what is an Exotic Bully?
An exotic bully is a designer dog. It doesn’t fit any classification. It should be it’s own breed.

What is your opinion on the new exotic breed movement?
I’m for it. Everyone has their own style, and as long as the dogs are healthy, I say go for it.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
We enjoy fishing, martial arts, and soccer.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
We think Bully Girl Magazine is a great source of information for anyone that wants to learn about the bully community.

Gripp Tyte Bullies: American Bully Breeder | Florida

State your name, and where your kennel is located.
My name is Jermaine Tucker. My kennel, Gripp Tyte Bullies, is located in Coral Springs, Florida.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
I breed the American Bully. I was inspired to get involved with this breed, due to a few dogs that stood out to me in 2008. You see, I consider myself an original dog man because I started breeding Pit bulls at the age of 13. So when I saw this breed, I fell in love with it. Immediately I had a vision of the dogs that I wanted to create. That’s when I decided to switch over from Pit bulls to the American Bully Breed.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
I do not keep my bullies on a specific branded diet throughout the year. However, I do always give them high quality grain-free kibbles (dry food). I also switch it up or double up with BAM RAW DIET, and/or kibbles because I believe in giving them the best nutrition possible.

What is your favorite bloodline?
My favorite bloodline is the HAZE line.

Do you currently show any of your dogs?
Yes, I currently show my male Gripp Tyte’s Platinum Plus, and my female Gripp Tyte’s Fiona.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
The best advice that I would have for upcoming breeders is to breed with a vision and purpose, and not for the hype!

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?
I think the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome is when they breed their female dog, or pay money to breed their female dog, and she does not conceive.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
I think they can overcome this by having a large stock of female dogs that start their heat cycle at different times.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
In the bully game, I look up to Mr. Ed. Shepard and Jorge (The Bully Campline). I also salute Luis and Ivan, over there at Interstate Bullies. All of these men had a vision. They created a dog they liked, promoted them, and elevated the bully game to new levels. That’s my mission.

Tell us about one of Gripp Tyte Bullies main goals going into the year 2018.
One of my main goals going into 2018 is to champ out, or grand champ out 1 or 2 of the dogs that I produce.

Describe how you would want things in the bully community to be 10 years from now.
The bully community is in a pretty good place right now. In 10 years, I would want breeders to continue to elevate their knowledge on the bully breed. I would want to see the creation of beautiful and correct features in all aspects of the breed. This way we can continue putting great dogs in people’s homes, and keep the movement on a positive note.

What separates Gripp Tyte Bullies from the competition?
To tell the truth, I really don’t think the about competition because I breed for myself with my vision and my mission at hand. All-in-all, here at Gripp Tyte Bullies, we believe in quality, honor and respect.

In your own words, what is an Exotic Bully?
An Exotic Bully to me is just a look! See if you think about it, when you talk about an “exotic” car it’s a look. When you talk about an “exotic” woman it’s a look that she has. And so, in my own words, an Exotic Bully is simply just a look!

What is your opinion on the new exotic breed movement?
I love the exotic movement. However, I also feel that breeders should breed for the health benefits of the dogs too, not only for the “look”! Overall to me, it’s a beautiful movement!

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in.
I am involved with the American Bullies Against Bullying mentoring the youth program. I also have interests in youth football coaching.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
I love Bully Girl Magazine! It’s been one of my goals and visions to partake on a page. And look…now the blessings have come to pass and it’s such a pleasure.
