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

Published

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.

Prophecy Bullies: XL American Bully Breeder

State your name, and where your kennel is located.
My name is William Baker. Friends and family call me CJ. My kennel is not yet complete. Prophecy Bullies is currently located in Colorado, but we plan to relocate to Arizona in a month or two.

What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
I breed XL bullies. What inspired me to get involved with this breed was my love for large dogs. I grew up with Rottweilers, and was always a huge fan of the XL bullies just by their appearance. I’ve been a fan since I was a freshmen in high school. It has been my dream to start up my own kennel and breed XL bullies.

What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
So like I said before, Prophecy Bullies is not yet a complete kennel, but is growing more and more everyday. We have a new addition to the pack coming real soon for the special Queen Zyra. However, I feed my girl Zrya Victor Nutro Pro, with raw meat such as chicken, beef, and pork.

What is your favorite bloodline?
I would have to say I am stuck between Royal bloodline and Gottline as my favorite bloodlines. However, if I had to choose it would probably be Gottiline.

Do you currently show, any of your dogs?
I do not currently show my dog. Right now you can only see her on my Instagram @ProphecyBullies, with her gaining more and more fans everyday.

What advice do you have for any upcoming breeders?
I’m an upcoming breeder. So the advice I would give upcoming breeders is to just be yourself, and never stop fighting for your dreams and goals in this business. Hard work does and will pay off.

What do you think, is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?
The hardest things to overcome in the bully game is networking and meeting the right people to do business with. Only because not all, but a lot of breeders are in this business just for the money and greed.

How do you think they can overcome this thing?
To overcome this, in my opinion I say participate in as many dog events as possible with your dog or by yourself. Meet and talk to people. Social media has always been a great way to network and get noticed. When it comes to doing business with people in the bully game, whoever does business with Prophecy Bullies is now family and a part of my kennel. With a mindset like that you will only surround yourself with the right people to do business with and form a family in the bully game. A team can overcome everything together.

Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
One kennel that I look up to in the bully game is ManMade Kennels. I have been watching them for as long as I can remember because of their bullies size and beauty. I love how they always want to help other people and how they do business. This made me feel as if they have the same outlook of family and working together as I do. With that being said, that’s where I purchased my first bully.

Tell us about one of Prophecy Bullies main goals going into the year 2018.
2018 is going to be a great year. We have a new addition to the pack coming real soon. Prophecy Bullies is really about to take off in the bully game. One of my main goals for 2018 is to have my first litter with Prophecy Bullies. I want to give the bully game something to remember.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully Community, to be 10 years from now.
Ten years from now I would like there to be less competition between everyone in the bully game. Instead I would like to see more of a teamwork, with us all coming together as a big family to produce the best bullies in the world.

What separates Prophecy Bullies from the competition?
What separates Prophecy Bullies from certain kennels is I’m not in this breeding business for the money. I am doing this because of my love and passion for this breed. For my kennel and I, this has been a huge goal and dream to breed these XL’s Bullies.

In your own words, what is an Exotic Bully?
In my own words, an exotic bully is a miniature American Bully.

What is your opinion on the new exotic breed movement?
In my opinion, I actually think the new exotic bully movement is different and interesting.

What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
I work full time as an independent contractor driver. I also like to go to the gym and go on hikes with my pack.
