Back to the beginning

Lance’s parents bred Dalmatians, when we got married in 1991, our first dog was a Dalmatian, we eventually bought a female and had a gorgeous litter of puppies.

The next big step

In 1998 I discovered an American Bulldog at a dog show at the International Centre in Mississauga.  He was the coolest thing I have ever seen, and it started our American Bulldog journey.  His name was MD Keno.  He was bred by Mark Ross In Atlanta, GA.  It took me a few weeks to get Lance to visit the owner but as soon as he met Keno he was hooked!  Lance went straight home and started researching american bulldogs, he had a massive favourites folder of AB kennels. Lance & I eventually turned his faves folder into the worlds largest american bulldog website. The website got too big for us to manage so we took it down. Furthermore the website was the jumping off point for us to buy and market the American Bulldog Registry & Archives. We purchased the ABRA in 2005.

Decision was made, we wanted an American Bulldog!

During our research on American Bulldog breeders we discovered that the father of the Johnson American Bulldog, John D. Johnson was still breeding in Somerville, GA.  We drove to Georgia and ended up buying a pup from Mr. Johnson in December of 1998.  Lance & I picked up “Blue” in March of 1999 and attended our first American Bulldog show in Birmingham, AL.   That was definitely a turning point for us and we became forever smitten.

Forward to 2020

We started to collect American Bulldogs then we hosted our first American Bulldog show in 2001.  Lance & I both apprenticed to become American Bulldog conformation judges.  Soon we were both American Bulldog National Alliance Reps and in 2005 we bought the American Bulldog Registry & Archives.  All the while we learned more and had first hand experience with our own dogs, the dogs we judged, the breeders we met, our breeder and our pet owner customers.  This tremendous experience gives you, our new customer, a serious advantage when buying a puppy from us.

The future looks great!

We still own the ABRA and register American Bulldogs all around the world everyday but we have stepped back from the show scene, we want to focus on our breeding program, our puppies and you!
