What is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?
To us the most difficult thing to over come in the bully game is the haters!

We think this could be over come if all bully breeders and lovers remember that we are all in it for the love of these dogs. That makes us family, and we should come together to help one another.
Who do you look up to in the bully game?
We look up to a couple of people in the bully game. They are Steven Pryor of Pryorboys Kennels, and Desmond Thornton of One Stop Bullies. They bred their boy KIMBO, to our female that produced our boy Diezel. Both Steven and Desmond have took time to answer any questions. They have taught me about the breed. I am very grateful to them both for taking their time to mentor me, and keeping it 100 with me all the time.
