Mcintosh Bullie Zone: American Bully and French Bulldog Breeder | Florida

Published

on

Mcintosh Bullie Zone

Who is Mcintosh Bullie Zone?

My name is Jacob McIntosh, of McIntosh Bullie Zone, and you can find us in Lehigh Acres, Florida.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
The type of dogs I enjoy to breed are American Bullies and French Bulldogs. My inspiration for this particular breed started at an early age. Both of my parents siblings were into breeding dogs. My Father’s brother bred Rotwilers and my Mother’s brother bred Pitbulls. Growing up I was mostly around Rotweilers, so I really didn’t know much about Pitbull’s. The Rotweiler’s had such a distinct color pattern that caught my eye. They possesed a unique look and I loved that. At the age of sixteen, one of my uncles gifted me my first Pitbull. It was then that I started to know more about them and fell in love with its personality. Owning one made me want to continue the family’s tradition of breeding dogs.

A love for the combination of the personality of the Pitbull, and the infactuation of the Rotweilers tri color pattern, lead me to venture and produce my very own style of Pitbull also known today as American Bully. My passion grew more and more for dogs, and after about fifteen years of educating myself on the different breeds of dogs I wanted to produce a line of dogs that my kids would remain demonate too no matter the age of the dog, that still had the bully attributes and tri color pattern. This lead me into the french bulldog world.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
The type of diet I keep my dogs on consists of free feeding dry kibble of Royal Canin english bulldog puppy, between the hours of 5:30am till 3:00pm. At 6pm I give them a combination of dry royal canin, water, and raw beef.

What is your favorite bloodline?
I dont necessary have a favorite bloodline. To me the structure of the dog is more important over their bloodline. I like working with a combination of Miagi, Dax, with a touch of Razor Edge blood for my American Bullies. For my French Bulldogs I have my favorites, but because of my infactuation with tri colors, I breed according to the dogs color DNA and structure.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?
Yes, I’ve had a chance to showcase my dogs with UKC, ABKC, BBCR, and IBR kennel organizations.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
Try to breed your personal likings as close to the breed standards as possible. Be patient, picky, and persistent when choosing the dog to start your foundation breeding program.

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?
The most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome is breeding excessively in pursuit of the perfect dog .

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
I would have to say that the way to overcome this is by researching the specific breed you are interested in. Look into the pedigree of the particular dog, and know it’s flaws and strongest attributes. This could be beneficial to the breeding itself.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
There isnt just one particular person who has inspired me in the bully game. In fact, there are many individuals that have contributed to my breeding program. I’d like to call out a few names, Denise Sharpe, Nicole Krell, Lindsey Tebbs, AJ Clemons, and I cant forget Nick Ferrio who is like a big brother to me. Their production has given me the confidence of knowing that I will have a calculated breeding of rare colors and structures each and every time.

Tell us about one of your most memorable moments, in 2016 so far.
One of the most memorable moments in 2016 was my first production off my blue and tan merle AKC registered male.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Commuity, to be 10 years from now.
I would like to see everyone breeding for the well being of the dog, not just for bragging rights.

What separates your kennel from the competition?
My infactuation for tri color patterns. Blue and tan, black and tan, chocolate and tan, lilac and tan, and merle and tan colored american bullies. Also french bull dogs that meet their breeds standards.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
I dont particulary have a hobby other then keeping up with my kennel organization, however, I do enjoy meeting new breeders and expanding my knowledge.

What motto do you live by?
“If I cant better it thru a breeding. I wont better it at all”.

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
I think its awesome that they go out and capture different dog show events, and the different breeds. Its a great way to represent the bully community, and their clothing line is of good quality.

Who is Elite Bully Kennels?

Tell our readers a little bit about yourself.
My name is Tim Levi, and this is my beautiful wife Fonda Levi. We represent Elite Bully Kennels. You can find us in New Port Richey Florida.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
We specialize in pocket and standard American Bullies. Like many others we started out with American Pit Bull Terriers. However, once we were introduced to the American Bully by a good friend of ours, we immediately fell in love. We were inspired by their overall appearance, temperament, and loyalty. We knew right away that this was the breed for us.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
We currently have all of our adult dogs on a high quality, grain free kibble with a 30/20 protein to fat ratio. We also include daily vitamins and rotate between coconut oil and wild alaskan salmon oil throughout the year for their skin and coats. All of our pups are given Taste of the Wild High Prairie Puppy Formula three times daily. We leave the rest to genetics.

What is your favorite bloodline?
There are so many bloodlines that bring good qualities to the table. We are currently working towards our own vision. Our vision is to have a clean, functional bully. This bully would have a lot of muscle mass, big bone, large head and a short compact frame. Without going over the edge, of course. So be sure to be on the lookout for the new Elite Line coming soon.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?
Yes we do. Our stud El Chapo, who is off of Grand Champion RedRum, took 1st & 2nd place BBCR ribbons home this year. We are looking forward to introducing him and a couple of our productions to the ABKC in 2018.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
This isn’t a get rich quick type of business. You have to be willing to invest time, effort, and money into your program if you want to be successful.

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bullygame to overcome?
Individuals and animal rights groups that try to bring negativity about the breed, due to their own ignorance.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
We believe that education is the key to the acceptance of the breed, and responsible breeders. Negative perceptions can be overcome by being the voice for the breed. We try to do exactly what you guys do at Bully Girl magazine. That is to offer educational and informational outlets through websites, magazines and social media. We want to showcase both the breed and responsible breeders in a positive light.

Our most memorable moment of 2017 would have to include our road trip to Georgia. We competed in a BBCR show and took home 1st and 2nd place ribbons.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
As cliche as it might sound, we would really like to see the bully community come together as a whole. Everyone needs to focus less on the money, greed, and envy. What really matters is breeding quality dogs, that are going to bring happiness to other families for many years to come.

The Bully Kingdom: American Bully Breeder | Texas

Published

By

The Bully Kingdom

Who is The Bully Kingdom?

The Bully KingdomState your name, and where your kennel is located.
My name is Jacobi Guyton, of The Bully Kingdom. You can find us in Dallas, Texas.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
We breed the American Bull. I saw this beautiful breed back in the 90’s, primarly in magazines at car shows on the west coast. I always wanted one but didn’t know the name of them. Back then I was into Pit Bulls, doing dumb shit, until I couldn’t afford to be in the game any more.

Push my life 20 years forward. Everywhere  I went, I started seeing these dogs again which made me wanted to get back in the game. I always told myself, if I ever got back involved, it would all be for the greater good of the breed! I started researching these American Bullies, and learned about all the good and bad things with this breed. On instagram I ran into a breeder name Spencer from Power Circle Bullies. I noticed he had a breeding going on and I had to jump on it! We linked up and The Bully Kingdom was formed! I said “I will only breed the best. Also I will do my best to put quality bullies in lovable family homes!”

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
I started with that raw diet everyone was talking about. After speaking with a few people that I trust, I just put my dogs on Eukanuba and it has been doing very well for my dogs! I now give Raw for snacks.

What is your favorite bloodline?
Daxline is my favorite blood line.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?
No, not at this time due to my kids staying very busy, but that is something I want to do in the future though.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
Do your research. Get involved for the love of the breed. Everything else will follow. Breed what you like and create the best Bully that is functional and active, with a great temperament!

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bullygame to overcome?
Greed and Patience! You can’t just buy a dog and become a millionaire. It takes time and money to build a successful dog kennel. Don’t get caught up in the money so much that you stop creating quality dogs! Your clients want the best dog buying experience ever, and it’s your job to create that!

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
By loving the breed more!

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
I have to say, I really like how Vincent over at D1 Kennels runs their business. No disrespect to anyone else. I think there are a lot of legit kennels out there.

Tell us about one of The Bully Kingdom’s most memorable moments, in 2017 so far.
My most memorable moment was having my first litter this year. Cassius Clay x Queen B! This litter produced some great looking dogs, with badass personalities!

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
I would like to see more cohesiveness in the bully community. We all love our dogs, and think our dogs are the best, but that shouldn’t get in the way of being good people. I would also like to see better productions. Take pride in your breedings and breed away from deformities, murmurs, and things that put a negative light on breed.

What separates The Bully Kingdom from the competition?
We aren’t trying to keep up with everyone. We are in our own kingdom and doing very good business! The Bully Kingdom will never be a puppy mill. Again, this is what we do because we love the breed!

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
I have an independent record label called Global Power Music Group (@globalpowermusicgroup on instagram). We are doing some great things over there! Check us out!

What motto do you live by?
Grind Smart, not Hard!

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
We feel you all do an impeccable job with keeping great awareness about the breed. It’s always good to run into people that share the same passion. Bully Girl is always looking to shed positive light on the American Bully breed. They are linking the community together. Also, they have a dope ass clothing line as well! When looking at your magazine it is easy to see why you all are the #1 Bully Magazine out there. Thank you for your time and this opportunity!

Hammerhead Bullies

Who is Hammerhead Bullies?

State your name, and where your kennel is located.
My name is Orlando Ortiz, of Hammerhead Bullies. You can find me in San Antonio, Texas.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
At Hammerhead Bullies, we breed American Bullies. We are about to start breeding French Bulldogs. Since I was a kid growing up, we always had American Pit Bull terriers. This made me develop a passion for this at a very young age, which was a big inspiration for me.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
I try to feed my dogs a high protein, high fat diet all year long. I also add some raw feed and extra supplements during the winter months.

What is your favorite bloodline?
My favorite bloodline is the Razors Edge bloodline. In my opinion some of the best show dogs have originated from this bloodline. They just don’t get much recognition nowadays.

Hammerhead BulliesDo you currently show, any of your dogs?
No. I currently don’t show any of my dogs. Just some fun shows here and there, to let people know what Hammerhead Bullies have to offer.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
Be careful out there… Haha!

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bullygame to overcome?
The most difficult thing to overcome is other breeders bashing the next man. You can lose your vision worrying about others opinions.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
By breeding for themselves first, and what they want to see running around their yard. Imagine a yard full of bulls you visualized. That’s the most satisfying feeling ever.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
I look up to everybody who supported us along the way. We appreciate our customers who drove and flew miles just to come and buy dogs. Some even came just to check out the yard. Also, everyone who kept It 100 throughout the years.

Tell us about one of your most memorable moments, in 2017 so far.
July 4th weekend at the Bully Beach Expo. I had the chance to meet Ed Shepherd. That man had some jokes.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
I would like to see more unity, and less hate. Plain and simple.

What separates your kennel from the competition?
First of all we’re humble, haha. No, but our dogs have been line bred enough to stand out. They carry those exaggerated traits on a bully compact frame. Also, advertising is key.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
I have no other hobbies at the moment.

What motto do you live by?
Well connected, Well respected!

What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
I think y’all are doing a good job with y’alls movement. Keep it up!
