State your name, and where your kennel is located.

My name is Wasey Lamar, and I am the founder and operator of CrazyNative Kennels, out of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

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

At CNK we breed pocket and standard style American Bullies.  We raise our dogs to have family oriented temperaments, and to be physically functional.  I grew up with traditional American Pitbull Terriers and I saw that American Bullies where on the rise about 10 years ago. Mugelston blood is what first caught my eye, which I know initially was about massive blue dogs. As I began to do more research, I heard about Remy Martin and his story. Remy was definitely an amazing dog in all aspects, but it was the story of the bloodline, and what he was producing that inspired me to get involved in this breed, and to try and create my own ideal style.

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

I have kept my dogs on a routine diet of Sport Mix for a few years, but have recently switched brands to Victor’s.  I am also planning to start a raw diet regimen, in addition to the dry food.

Do you have any upcoming breedings that you would like our readers to know about?

I have a few breedings in the works right now that I’m really excited about.  But one in particular is SOB’s Skeptic X CrazyNative’s Pandy, which gave me some amazing pups! I may not always have a litter on the ground or a breeding happening, but that is only because I try to be really selective and plan a litter that I know will be a great production.

What is your favorite bloodline?

As stated before Remyline bloodline is what got me hooked and will always be my favorite. My foundation stud, Ch.Stache the Cash, is a Remy grandson/Headquarters son.  Most of my yard is based off of him because he carries every trait in a bully I could ask for, with the exception of his height.  That is the reason I started looking to some other bloodlines to see what I could add to achieve the height I was wanting, but also keep all the attributes of Cash and a Remyline dog.

Do you currently show, any of your bullies?

It’s been a few months since I’ve taken my dogs to a show and put them in the ring.  I’ve been focused on a few particular breedings, training some new productions, throwing some shows, and spreading the word about RKC.  I’m planning on getting back into the ring soon. Although it’s been awhile since I have been in the ring, the first couple of years were dedicated to champing out three dogs. My next focus will be to champ and grand champ my 3rd generation productions.

What advice do you have for any upcoming Bully Breeders?

My advice for new comers is to develop thick skin, and be able to decipher between someone who is genuine and someone that is just trying to get your money.  There are a lot of great people out there that are really in it for the love of the breed and want to see it succeed and improve.  Then there are the ones that are just in it for the money and attention.  Some will hate if you do good, hate if you make a mistake, and sometimes hate even if you do nothing at all.  Be in this for the right reasons, surround yourself with the right people, and never hesitate to ask for opinions and help.

You recently co-hosted the The Missing Piece – Bullies for Autism, RKC Show in Wichita Falls, Texas. Tell our readers what that experience was like for you, and what they can look forward in the future.

The Legacy and I just co-hosted the first RKC show to hit Texas and it was great to see all the people that came out!  Hosting a show and attending a show are definitely two different experiences.  When you are there to show your dogs you mainly have to just set up your booth and make sure your dogs are all good and ready to get in the ring.   Hosting the show is a lot more complex.  You have to get the venue, trophies, organize registration, take booth orders, make sure you have enough help and basically make sure everyone and everything is where they are supposed to be and doing what they are supposed to be doing.

We really enjoy having shows and are looking forward to bringing many more RKC shows to the central states.  We want to make sure and bring the family fun atmosphere to our shows because that is really what it is all about.

What is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome, and how can they overcome this thing?

When you get started in bullies you can definitely face some obstacles.  It can be deciding which bloodlines are right for you, having the knowledge and funds you need to successfully care for your dogs, or simply being able to get your kennel name out there and get yourself and your dogs recognized.

The best way to overcome these obstacles is to make a plan for your program.  Figure out what you are wanting to produce and decide what it’s going to take to make that happen.  Spend your money right, produce good clean dogs, believe in what you are doing, stand by your word, and do good business.

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

When I was first starting out in the Bully World there were a couple of people that I really could count on to help me out when I needed advice, or someone to point me in the right direction. One of those people was Will Deroisa of DFB Kennels.  Fabian Chichester is another person that I look up to, because he is one who has solid morals, good ethics and obviously does things the right way.  He has stuck to what he believes in for his program, and I plan to do the same.

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

In the next 10 years, I would love to see more education on Bullies, and for breeders to strive for more functional, clean, correct, and healthy dogs.  I would like to see the American Bully back on the right track.

What separates your kennel from the competition?

I think my kennel is different from others in the fact that I have tried to use different bloodlines than most kennels in my area.  I also represent my Native American heritage in all of my kennel promotion, because I am very proud of both. If you already know me then you know the name “CrazyNative” fits me and my kennel.  Another thing that I want to stand out is that I am a genuine person, and it is my main goal to better the breed.

What motto do you live by?

I live by the motto “Everything happens for a Reason”.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?

I appreciate Bully Girl Magazine for giving me the opportunity to talk a little about my program, RKC, and what I would like to see in the future for the bully world. It’s because of the media and magazines like Bully Girl, that we are changing the stigma about Bullies and continuing to educate people on what our dogs are all about.  So thank you Bully Girl Magazine, and continue doing what you do best.

Delta Bulldogs: English Bulldog Breeder | California

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

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.
