No health testing, no titles and breeding for size, it's not what I look for in a breeder. I'd be worried about hip and joint issues. He sure is cute though and sounds like he will be great for what you need him for.

They show their dogs. The ones they own and ones they have bred have shown very well. Fenris was taken to the vet by them before he came home with us. He checked out fine. In the contract, it discuses such health issues so all bases were covered. They breed for the size, good health, and form. We've had Fenris to the vet twice now since bringing him home and our vet has found nothing wrong, clean bill of health.

Today he's seeming to be content with sleeping. I think he's still sleeping off the vaccines from yesterday. Don't quite blame him, he did get poked twice on top of a worming. Did get the good news that he is still currently parasite free. He has learned to sit as long as you get his attention properly before using the command. Going to start him on leash soon.

Ah their websites don't show titles at all, and by health tests I don't mean a vet check, I mean checks through ofa. If you decide to do weight pull I highly recommend getting hip and elbow xrays done so you can ensure his joints can handle it. Bullies are known for hip and elbow issues

Completely agree with you.

Well, everything has been going well with him. Haven't had any problems. Have taught him to sit on command. Going to be working on leash training next, I think. Also need to find an activity that helps him burn off some energy. Can't do puppy play dates until he is 4 months old because of the parvo going around the valley. We have the two great danes, but they still aren't too sure about how to play with him as they're so big and he's so little.

He weighs 15.2 pounds now though! He's getting big. About to snuggle with him and watch a movie. He actually watches Bones with me. So cute.

How old is the pup???
What pick is he

Your from the west
Y didn't u pick a west coast style

West coast gotti
Gorge with karate kid n mr miyagi


They can call there kennel bully
But all I see is stander/correct pit
15" is big for a pocket nature stance(from what I've recall is 16" is the cut off)
Most people stack there dog to get measurement
Dropping the height buy a few inche

I'm thinking about possibly getting into weight pulling with Fenris. They've got his grandfather, Cerberus, doing it and he loves it. If Fenris shows he doesn't care for it, I wont make him of course. Wouldn't want him to be unhappy. Just think it would be good for him to have a physical outlet since he'll be a work dog most of the time.
Also going to be showing him since they started a specific class for altered bullies. Being a service dog, Fenris will be fixed when he's old enough. Well, as long as he doesn't prove to be allergic to the anesthesia.

You should see him when he's walking about. He stacks himself just about every time he stops!
Weight pulling is to build muslce mass on the dog/to look cut
But if u buy a good line
It will look good with just dog food/raw meat and walking the dog
