Familia Legacy Kennels – New Jersey

Published

Familia Legacy Kennels

State your name, and where your kennel is located.

My name is Myra Torres, and my partners name is Jorge Arbelo, we are the CEO’s of Familia Legacy Kennels, out of New Jersey.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?

We will be breeding for standard and pocket size bullies. American Bullies have always intrigued us. This breed is known for their structure, strength, and loving nature; a little something like our own family.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?

Our bullies eat a combination of raw diet and taste of the wild. This combined with regular exercise, keeps them looking great. At F.L.K., we believe a good portion of the dog’s structure is genetics. The rest is nutrition.

What is your favorite bloodline?

Currently we don’t have a favorite bloodline, but we do like the Daxline, Magoo, Razors Edge, and Louie V blood lines. These are all bloodlines that have accomplished great structure, and have made an impact in the bully world.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?

At this moment we are not showing any of our dogs, but we do attend the ABKC shows, and look forward to showing our future productions.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?

Our advice to breeders out there would be to stay focused on why we love the Bully Breed, and not on each other’s success. Progression is the key that can be used to learn and educate one another, not tear each other apart. We are all striving for the same goal, and that is to better the breed.

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?

The fear to interact with one another, because of our differences and the fear of criticism.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?

Reaching out to other breeders, and attending shows are always a good start. As far as criticism, that just comes with the territory, but it’s not a bad thing. Criticism is what keeps you focused on future goals.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?

Honestly, we look up to all the breeders out there who have made it big. It takes a lot of time and effort to build an empire. That’s something you can’t take away from just any one person.

Tell us about one of your most memorable moments, in 2017 so far.

I think both I and my partner can both agree that attending the shows, educating ourselves, and watching our dogs evolve has been one of our most memorable moments.

Describe how you would want things in the Bully Community to be 10 years from now.

“UNITY” We would love for the bully world to push each other towards a better future, because money isn’t everything. The dogs also play an important role they are our pets, friends and family.

What separates your kennel from the competition?

We are still growing our business, but we are working hard to leave our stamp in the bully world. What separates us from the rest, is our love for the breed and our family. Familia Legacy Kennels is owned by me Myra Torres, and my brother Jorge Arbelo. People may say don’t ever mix business with family, but the reality is family is forever our business.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?

We love taking family vacations with our dogs. Whether it’s camping or just simply walking around the park and having a barbecue. It’s a life style that brings good vibes.

What motto do you live by?

Honesty, Loyalty, and Respect. All three make a dangerous combination.  You can never go wrong following this motto.

What do you think of Bully Girl magazine?

We absolutely love the Bully Girl Magazine! Keep the interviews, merchandise, pictures, and videos coming. Much love and respect from us to you. Keep doing what you do!

Dawson Elite Bullies

State your name, and where your kennel is located.
My name is Christian Dawson and my kennel partner is Michael Dawson. Our kennel, Dawson Elite Bullies, is located in North Brunswick, New Jersey.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed.
We breed standard and classic American Bullies. I was inspired when I saw my first bully. I was like, “I need one of my own.” When I purchased my first bully, I noticed a bunch of people doing improper breeding. So I thought I can change this. The result was producing quality companions.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
In the morning, we feed our dogs kibble with coconut oil, and in the afternoon we feed them raw food with coconut oil.

What is your favorite bloodline?
On our yard, we have Gottiline and Razors Edge. We are seeking to incorporate the Mikeland bloodline.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?
Yes, we currently show our female Krystal, and we used to show our foundation male Koba. Many of Koba’s offspring will be hitting the show ring next year.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
Just be patient things will work out.

What do you think is the most difficult thing for people in the bullygame to overcome?
Finding a good foundation to start a kennel. A lot of people come into the game thinking, oh I’m going to go buy a male, then buy a female, and then I’ll have grand champion pups. Don’t get me wrong I used to think that too, but overtime I got more educated.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
Be patient, study their bloodlines, and see which ones they want to work with.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
Ron Ramos, because he has given me so many tips, and he is very good at what he does. He is very knowledgeable with it comes to the bully breed.

Tell us about one of your most memorable moments, in 2017 so far.
When our female Krystal took first place in the 9-12 month standard female class, and reserved best standard female at the Allentown Bully Convention 5, which was the first time she showed in that class.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
I want cleaner and more correct dogs. I want the world to know how great the breed is, as far as companionship and temperament.

What separates your kennel from the competition?
At our kennel we focus on building a great dog to represent the standard American Bully. We don’t focus on building the bulkiest dog with the widest chest. All our dogs can function properly, and have great temperaments. We are working hard at elevating the breed.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
I love to fish and play golf.

What motto do you live by?
Be the type of person you want to meet.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
I love Bully Girl Magazine, and think that it is growing more and more everyday. This is a great way to educate people outside of the bully world about the breed. It will also shed light on people that are doing positive things to elevate the breed.

Iron Bulldogs | French Bulldog Breeder – Germany

Published

By

Iron Bulldogs - Germany

State your name, and where your kennel is located.
We are located in Germany NRW Rees am Niederrhein, and our kennel name is Iron Bulldogs.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
We breed French bulldogs. We love this breed, because they fit perfectly into our family. We breed sporty, slimmer dogs, with longer backs, and more nose.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
Our breeders all get the same food. Vollmers Anti-allergy with Reindeer Meat. Our puppies get a little bit of everything – wet food, dry food, meat, etc. This way they get to know everything.

Iron Bulldogs - GermanyWhat is your favorite bloodline?
Of course, our own bloodline is our favorite.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
Breeding should not be taken lightly. You should always act for the sake of the respective breed. Breedings should be well thought out, and you should have a goal. You main goal should always be health. Breeding costs a lot of time and money.

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bullygame to overcome?
The most difficult thing to overcome are other breeders, and the envy. You need a thick coat and must make your decision. There aren’t many honest friends amongst successful breeders.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
I’ve already been down this road. Now I have a small selection of breeders, whom I call friends and that I choose to exchange with.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
I do not take anyone as an example. No-one can really look into the cards and you never really know who is genuine. I admire honest breeders who have come to a goal through their long-term work, and have not just bought their way to the top by the work of others.

Tell us about one of your most memorable moments, in 2017 so far.
Most of all this year I am looking forward to our still outstanding cast of our own generation. From this litter we of course will reserve a puppy.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
I would like to see everyone being fair to each other, and see more respect for health evaluations.

What separates your kennel from the competition?
Class instead of mass. Our puppies are a part of the family, just like our breeders. We are very transparent, and maintain very close contact with our puppy parents.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
We don’t have much time for other hobbies besides the dogs and the family. Dog breeding is our biggest hobby. I’m still interested in photography, but only involving the dogs.

What motto do you live by?
Live and let live. One’s life is far too important to deal with the other.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
Bully Girl Magazine has a good approach. They have very interesting and informative content that runs worldwide. Keep it up!
