Co owned with Tracey Hughes. Very stable and social. . I'm more than grateful to Tracey Hughes and Marcel Villanueva for the opportunity they are providing her to learn and be her best self. She has off the charts prey drive with zero regard for self preservation. Plenty of working drive, one heck of a nose. She lives elsewhere but transitions really well into anyone's hands, including my young kids whom she has always adored. She has travelled to many shows without her handlers with zero issues and simply just loves life
She was #3 NKC American Bulldog in 2019, however due to Covid, was unable to cross the USA/Canada border to compete at Nationals. She completed her Grand Champion with 4/5 legs in 2020, took a 2 year hiatus off shows due to timing of breedings, and returned to win 3 Grand Champion classes to earn her Supreme. Cadie has produced very well and will be bred one final time to a bully/classic style AB in 2023.
Sobek is a nice boy who 'popped' after 3. He has massive teeth, great bone, a beautiful head, and moves with a powerful rear. . He is very prey driven, but will easily switch into defense and back when doing sport. He is a super outgoing dog, very engaged with his handler and has a stable friendly temperament, with enough oomph to work when the time is right. A very athletic well balanced dog with no dog aggression and just happy all around.
Fireball is a really promising young female prospect. She is a big female with a boat load of bone and from an early age, an adult front end. She is well over 79-80 lbs dog in fit condition. She has amazing prey drive, super nerve, with a great off switch, very intelligent and a thinker. She is very good around other dogs, and we transitioned from PSA style training to a new method in Schutzhund after 1.5 years of age, and she is extremely promising. As a handler, I'm learning a new sport so our progress will be slow She won a Best in Show and my son handled her in the CH ring at ease...she is just an all around pleasure of a dog to own!
Dio is an absolute show stopper. A monster of a dog weighing in at over 100 lbs fit. He has so much bone and after 3, his head and neck have exploded. Pictures do not do this dog justice. He moves very nice with a powerful confident presence. He's also a worker...he has great prey drive and one hell of a grip in bitework. I'm really happy with this boy and am pleased to see him progress! I love that he's also a great family companion for his family, and I'm thrilled that his co owners enjoy him as much as I love watching him mature.
Rain is a really nicely balanced female with a super social temperament. She stayed here until she was 6 months old, finished her NKC Jr Champion title, and later went to South Carolina where she lives with Robert at RJ Kennels. She has now caught a tonne of hogs and is essentially a running catch dog. Robert's enjoys her temperament and workability. She's bigger than his traditional catchdog preference, but does the job. Roper still owns her, but she will live and work for Robert. There's nothing you can pick apart with this female really besides her dark liver pigment and green eyes. She's correct, stable, balanced, athletic with a tight scissor bite. I got everything I wanted in this female besides her pigment colour, so I'm thrilled to see her work for Robert.
Blue is a very eager to please dog always wanting to be glued to your side. He is a bouncy kinda dog, and will gladly relax at your foot in the house. He will do ANYTHING you ask of him very happily from agility to weightpull to protection training to just being a fun family dog. In just 4.5 months of weekly training after some basic foundation, we were able to trial at a PSA trial and earn his PDC-SD (Protection Dog Certificate - Sleeve Division), which coincidentally was 2.5 weeks after life saving obstruction surgery. In just 3 short weeks we trained him to his UWP (first level of UKC weightpull and he did with ease). We also on a whim entered him in a UKC Agility trial and he had super results in all his legs earning his UAG1. He has a very strong ball & prey drive and is very attentive to Stephanie particularly, however he's also a very social dog that can hop right into the car beside our son after doing bitework.
He has had phenomenol conformation results with highlights earning his Champion and Grand Champion NKC Conformation title in 2017, as well as winning Best in Breed at Carolina Spectacular, Quebec Fall Bull & the Florida NKC Shows, and Best in Show at Grand River Kennel Club October 2016 UKC Show beating over 200 dogs in a variety of breeds and working purposes. He became a Supreme in 2017, going onto Nationals and winning the Top 10 ring in May 2018. We were working towards his PSA1 in 2021 when he had surgery on his ear to remove a non cancerous mast cell lump (he now has a goofy ear) and he sustained a groin injury returning due to my own stupidity letting him go too hard after too much time off....so working titles are on hold.
Blue has now earned his PDC-SD, NWDA OBT & WTE, as well as his Irondog ID3 (Ranked 1st & 2X 2nd), GDT, IDTT, UAG1, UWP and his ATAN .
He has been tested on hogs with a good start. He has produced some really nice dogs both in Canada and in Europe.
For the best gut health...
Drama is the result of an Artificial insemination with semen imported from Europe. She's the only female, and we are really happy with what we see in her. She has the 'stop' we were hoping for and seemingly a beautiful overall temperament as well.
Holley is a very forward confident puppy that oozes drive. She has a combination of both parents, so she's going to be a handful to rein in, but she should excel in time. She lives on rural property with critters, so I look forward to watching her grow and mature.

Legacy is an outstanding young female with plenty of size and good all around type, and moves like a dream. She has a very forward, confident outgoing nature yet with excellent handler focus and desire to work. Her prey drive is super and all around a really nice puppy at a young age. She earned 2 Best in Show Puppies at just 3.5 months of age and a 2nd place to her sister.
Maple is an outstanding young female. She earned 3 Best in Show Standard Puppy wins at the Crazy Canuck Classic at 9 months in 2022 making her an NKC Jr CH. In UKC, she showed earlier that month to win a Best in Breed and Best Winners, then carried on to Premiers to win a Best in Breed against some stellar competition and finished her Champion title the same weekend. Just after 12 months, she earned 2 Best Females (being beat by Littermate and half brother) making her a NKC Champion. She is super friendly, crazy prey drive, very confident and outgoing. She is super correct and and floats when she moves. We enjoy training her and put some foundation bitework on her, and time will tell what time our life allows us and what direction we take her.
