By Ed Magedson - Founder, Ripoff Report
Shrink-A-Bulls / Champ Bulldogs are intent on resolving any customer issues as quickly as possible.
As a Part of the Corporate Advocacy Program the member business allows Ripoff Report to send an email to all of those who filed a complaint in the past, letting the customer know, the member business wanted to make things right with them, whatever it takes to do so. Ripoff Report always monitors these emails to insure the member business does what they agreed to. The people at SHRINK-A-BULLS did just that.
*In addition to their pledge to respond to any customer issues in a prompt and fair manner, they also happily agreed to be "Verified” by "WE GO LOOK”. " WE GO LOOK" is an inspection agency that does ONSITE inspection verifications on businesses, including but not limited to taking photos of every angle of the physical location of the businesses (inside & out), conducting interviews, total physical inspection of the business and how things are conducted on a daily basis. Basically "WE GO LOOK" becomes a third party eyes for the buyer, by verifying the business before the customer makes the purchase! WE GO LOOK verifies the existence and the accuracy of all the seller's claims to the products they offer, how things are conducted, address/location etc so that the buyer can feel secure in exactly who they are doing business with.
*Shrink-A-Bulls happily agreed to allow "WE GO LOOK" to physically come inspect and photograph the entire living condition and environment of the breeder's home where the dogs live & puppies are raised, including the breeder's home (inside & out), office, entire property, animals, family with children who live with the animals on a daily basis, etc.
Typically when "WE GO LOOK" visits a place of business for verification, it's an office or a workplace. But this particular breeder raises their puppies in their own home with their family so this was done a little differently. Upon the inspection it was clear that their lives revolve around these animals. The inspection was reported as enjoyable and by far one of the most satisfactory inspections that the WE GO LOOK inspector had conducted.

SHRINK-A-BULLS CONTINUES TO PROVE "WHO THEY ARE” IN TERMS OF QUALITY & REPUTATION
"We have gone to great lengths to make sure to try and resolve any and all customer issues to the best of our abilities. We have joined the Corporate Advocacy Program because we want customers to know we will resolve any and all customer issues. We want our customers to have the most enjoyable experience possible in learning about the breeds we work with and selecting and bringing home their new puppy. We have proven our passion for quality and our reputability time and again. Being a small family, hobby breeder, NOT a big company, all of our puppies are hand raised from birth with our family's 5 children. All of these puppies are home/family bred. Often the puppies produced grow up right alongside our k-9 parents and grandparents as a 3rd or 4th generation of the breeding line. Only the best quality adult dogs are bred and the puppies are only placed in approved homes who have passed the application process. We only offer the highest standard of puppies to our puppy buyers. Because we genuinely care about the homes our puppies go to, we offer lifetime education and support on puppy and Bulldog care. Being an AKC registered breeder who easily passed AKC home inspection in 2013, most of the adult dogs used in this bloodline are also OFA health certified. Many of these wonderful dogs have also earned the AKC CGC titles, a number of other Championships, titles, service dog & therapy dog certifications. We truly goes the extra mile!”

"We are recognized worldwide not only for breeding surpassingly beautiful healthy bulldogs from the best pedigrees in the world, but also for our strong celebrity association. Our dogs have appeared in countless movies, music videos, celebrity photo shoots, magazines and MTV shows, some of which have been viewed over 100 million times! One small example is a beautiful young celebrity actor bulldog puppy named "SHRINK-A-BULLS SLOAN" (2nd generation of this breeding line) who is staring in a big movie coming out early 2014! Academy Award and Golden Globe nominated actor “Eric Roberts" (actress Julia Roberts brother) is holding her in the previews (movie teasers)! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OIyVhlb1ubw&feature=youtu.be&t=1m3s”

WHY Shrink-A-Bulls IS BETTER THAN THEIR COMPETITORS
"What separates Shrink-A-Bulls from other dog breeders? Simply put & most importantly: “Our reasons for and goals in breeding". We breed out of true love & dedication to the breed and the drive to improve every generation as well as the breed in general as a whole. Most breeders you will find are breeding without true knowledge of the breed for the goal of popping out puppies just to sell for a profit. These common dog breeders take the path of least resistance and cut corners as it's extremely expensive and time consuming to go with the best breeding decisions and truly improve the breed. Often times puppies produced by these breeders will look mixed-bred or be inbred with many health problems. This is one reason that it is STRONGLY suggested that buyers never purchase puppies from pet stores! It is also best to purchase a puppy from a breeder who has been physically inspected by a professional inspection services such as WE GO LOOK or AKC. Buyers should also be wary of breeders who don't ask questions to help them find out what type of home the buyer would provide for one of their puppies. The investment that you put into finding a quality breeder & puppy is well worth your time! The bulldog breed (yes, even well bred bulldogs) has many health issues that are considered normal or common due to how oddly the body build is of this breed & many bulldogs don't even look like the breed. On the contrary if a breeder puts many many years of work, love and every type of investment possible into creating their puppies/dogs lives like we do, you can be sure we are going to care about those puppies futures & where those puppies go in terms of new families. In return the buyers are MUCH more likely to get what they are looking for; a healthy, high quality puppy with a good temperament. Because that puppy came from many years of educated, knowledgeable breeding, not just two dogs randomly bred together just to make puppies to sell to the public. We are breeders who truly cares about the puppies/dogs we breed & about the new families who adopt the puppies that we have strived for so many years to produce. That being said we go the extra mile and spare no expense in producing the best dogs possible and taking the best care of them possible. With over 30 years of combined experience and the valuable knowledge/experience that comes from it that guides every decision they make, with regards to our breeding program and we have the credentials to back up every claim we make! We have passed in-home & dog breeding inspections with the most credible organizations of both "AKC" & “WE GO LOOK" in 2013, documentations available on request, OFA health testings, AKC CGC titles, numerous championships, service dog certifications, therapy dog certifications and much more.
SHRINKABULLS ACE CELEB SHOOT WITH "KEANA" & GLEE'S "SAMUEL LARSEN"
Only the absolute highest quality (health pedigree & temperament) dogs are bred together to produce these puppies. Each breeding is matched up perfectly with knowledge of the bloodlines/ family history to make the most progress in the ultimate goal of improving the breed. OFA health certification is used for health screenings. All mothers have the best supplements/diet when pregnant. We feed organic 4 star dog food kibble mixed with home cooked fresh foods consisting of fresh meats (fish, chicken, turkey eggs), vegetables, cod liver oil, Vit B, Vit E, Ester Vit C & many other supplements based on years of researching this dog breeds individual needs. All mother dogs are bred surgically, receive ultrasounds during pregnancy, have regular prenatal vet visits, C-section birth & all puppies are hand raised every two hours after birth in an incubator located in the puppies very own sterilized nursery. These dogs/puppies are also raised in our home with our 5 children making them extremely socialized and well adapted to family life. We are a one of a kind dog breeder who places no limits on whatever it takes to produce the absolute best dogs possible. As mentioned above the dogs chosen for breeding are based on complete all around knowledge of this breeds bloodlines / family history & credentials. We have even traveled to England (where the breed originated) several times over the years to select the very best dogs from the best pedigrees in the world to use in their breeding program. We have even taking photo & video footage of many of these wonderful dog in their breeding program walking across the London Bridge in Great Britain. The outstanding pedigrees used in this breeding program are better than what most show breeders in the world posses. The following dogs are just 3 examples of MANY, MANY outstanding dogs in this breeding program that you won't find in other breeding programs:

Numerous of his puppies have also went on to become famous. Such as his son "Buddy", a rare blue frenchie puppy who was featured in singer and pop star Cher Lloyd's music video "Oath" which has been viewed over 50 million times! After which Cher Lloyd went on to adopt Buddy whom ended up being her second Shrink-A-Bull puppy as she already has Sharon an English Bulldog from this same breeder.

These are only a few examples to show how we stands out from other breeders. These fantastic breeding lines consist of many other World famous dogs with just as many & in some cases more credentials and achievements and are of the highest quality based on years of very hard work, vast financial investments and mostly the knowledge to make it happen. With all things considered we have yet to come across another dog breeder whom comes even close to the quality & achievements we have.”

Shrink-A-Bulls / Statements from the owner.
"I am Mr. Ward, my wife and I are owners of Shrink-A-Bulls and part owners of Champ Bulldogs. We would like to thank you for your interest in our breeding program. I'm going to share a shortened biography of our lives as the world renowned breeders we have come to be today so you can get to know us & our family better. If you get tired of reading please just go to our website where you can find more information on us, and hundreds of photos & videos of our beautiful dogs! Thank You.
We simply LOVE English and French bulldogs! Having 3 generations of bulldog lovers in our family has been a blessing of its own! Both of my aged parents own English & French bulldogs, likewise both of my brothers and my sisters are also owned by bulldogs :) Now, watching our human children grow up loving & embracing our beloved dog breed brings us the most happiness, satisfaction & joy! This (puppy) life stages video we made shows a good example of the love & compassion our children & puppies share growing up together in our family: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eXdsvQ8qZj4 . As you can see our dogs are just as much a part of our family as any human! In fact our dogs are thoroughly convinced they ARE human!

As breeders, we do things differently than most. One of the most common pitfalls that breeders encounter (outside of lack of education in the first place) is the desire to save money and time by using dogs that are either close by and convenient or that are just not of breeding quality in overall conformation, health & temperament (not to mention short cuts in diet, care, vet expenses & living conditions). On the contrary, we have invested immensely in our breeding program in every way possible: financially, emotionally, time wise, educationally etc... All in an effort to produce the bulldogs of our dreams (being the closest to perfect as possible).
When my wife & I started breeding ourselves we knew that we only wanted to own and produce the best. We could not be satisfied with your average "show dog". My wife & I attended dog shows as kids/early teens & 20s giving us the foundation to see that all bulldogs are not made equal (even show dogs).
So we began our long journey to create the best bulldogs possible still holding that SUPER CUTE irresistible LOOK & type, that “look" most bulldogs lose as they get older. We started with education. We studied bulldogs anatomy, health, temperament, history (origin) of the breed and in particular studied the bulldog breed standard day & night for years. At that time we were showing some nice AKC bulldogs that were doing some winning in the ring. However the quality of most of the dogs we would see at local dog shows at the time were just mediocre & they were largely closely related to each other. Many of the breeders' goals were simply to get their dog to beat its sister or cousin dog that their friends owned.

Our luck changed one day when a young bulldog puppy from England was introduced to us at a show. He was, by far, better quality than any bulldog I had ever seen. He was shorter, thicker with an amazing brick head, widest square jaw... Just no comparison to the bulldogs we had previously encountered in the show world we were involved in. From that moment on we were changed. We knew what we wanted & no amount of money, time, distance, education, searching or begging was going to stop us. We felt like if we aren't going to breed for the best then we aren't going to breed at all. We had found our calling! (You can scroll down below the next paragraphs to read more about how we have progressed in our quality of dogs & made changes that help us have the high quality of bulldogs that we have today ).
So back to us personally - The reason why we are breeders is that when all is said and done, the Bulldog breed just brings us the most happiness :). We feel a bulldog could make just about anyone happy! Our goal with our web site is to let our 'bullie kids' do their job and make others smile when they visit our site! Our goal with regards to breeding starts & ends with our perfectionism to create amazingly beautiful, CUTE and well tempered dogs bred with the actual Breed Standard at heart. My wife is a perfectionist and our dogs are her art work. What we put into our dogs allows us to breed dogs that even an inexperienced person can tell are truly special and satisfyingly different than what's seen when walking down the street, in pet stores, in the local paper, on the web, or even often seen on TV! While our MAIN focus is health, temperament and breed standard we also have a preference for dogs on the smaller side of average and that possess an extraordinarily CUTE appeal. Our puppies are hand raised in a sterilized nursery as part of the family with ourselves and our 5 children. We place quality before size or color when considering any breeding. We breed for health, temperament & quality first. We breed all shades of standard colors: white, pie bald, brindle & white, red brindle & white, Fawn & white etc... Exotic colors are only icing on the cake but not our main focus( again our focus is quality). The rare colors we specialize in are black tri, blue tri, chocolate tri & exotic purple lilac tri.
SINGER CHANTEL, "SENDING MY LOVE" STARRING SHRINKABULLS LEGACY
We always prefer to place our bulldog puppies in loving pet homes where they will be loved and pampered as part of a family. We generally avoid placing them with any breeders aside from those we know and trust or ones that only have a couple dogs that live as pets. If any are placed with breeding rights granted, it is on a strict basis so as to ensure the most responsible breeding possible.
Many of our bullie puppies have went on to celebrity and showbiz families, such as famous singers, producers, models, an American Idol judge, actors, actresses & countless -NBA, NFL, NHL, MLB athletes, here are examples of a few of many more whom we have sold puppies to:

GROUP "DELTA REA" "IF I LOVED YOU" STARRING SHRINKABULLS LEGEND
These are just a few that I could remember. We are only sharing these here to validate our credibility (not intending to brag). We do celebrity things with our bully kids just a beloved hobby we have, a passion for us. We enjoy showing the WORLD what a quality & CUTE bulldog should look like. In Hollywood as well as around every corner, you commonly see low quality, even mix-bred-looking bulldogs. So we enjoy showing the world the CUTE EXPRESSIVE faces that our years of dedication has paid off with!
Most of our puppies go to loving pet homes to sleep on someone’s couch and be cherished by their families. Of course we like showing our beautiful bullie babies off, but most importantly we want our puppies to have the happiest lives possible. We are grateful to the wonderful families who have adopted our babies and given them wonderful loving homes. Our puppies make the best family members and have so much love to give. They are like having a little silly laid back kid always ready to make you smile and love you unconditionally. Very therapeutic! FYI (I will post a list of many of our puppies with celebrities down towards the bottom of this review just to help people see that we are reputable breeders.)

In the behind the scenes video you can hear Sevyn tell Chris Brown that she is in love with Jax at 2:35
What's more however, is that after you pick up your new puppy we will always be here for puppy "tech support". We enjoy keeping in touch with the families who get our pups. We love pictures and updates. It not only let's us see how our pups are doing but also helps us guide the new owner with any special instructions as this breed is so very unique. In addition it also allows us greater insight on our breeding program so we can be aware of any adjustments that may be for the best interests of this fascinating breed. It helps ensure that we continue to make good decisions in what we do! We still have numerous 'bullie' friends we visit in various states when we happen to be passing near for vacation or business. It's so exciting to see them in person when they're all grown up!
"Lil Wayne" & "Christina Milian platinum pop singers " with "SHRINKABULLS BLUE TITUS" in music video " HELLO"
We normally only breed one or two litters a year because we have full time jobs, bullie and human children. Quality means more than quantity ever will. But we normally do have a couple puppies available per month from breedings of our stud services out of our Champion or exotic studs. Our dogs live with us as family members. The puppies are always born c-section & kept in an incubator in our sterilized nursery until they are ready to join their new loving families! We hand raise all puppies & place them on mommy to nurse every two hours after birth around the clock. Our small children love, watch, and help with feeding and caring for the puppies. Which helps exponentially in the socialization process from the moment they are born onward. All puppies are produced from the very best Champion lines that the bulldog breed originated from (more info below) and we take the greatest care to ensure that standard is improved with each generation.”

Shrink-A-Bulls / Breeding Story
"My wife and I started attended dog shows as kids and early teens which gave us the foundation to see that not all bulldogs are bred with the same quality (even show dogs). As very young adults getting into breeding ourselves we knew right on that we not only wanted the best but we wanted an exact look. The wonderful thing about the bulldog breed is that a bulldog can still be correct but have different looks or expression than another correct bulldog, unlike other breeds in the show ring! So we wanted correctness, individuality, and CUTENESS all in one! So we began our long journey to create the most correct bulldogs possible with the look that screams "I AM ADORABLE"! Most bulldogs lose that cute baby look as they get older however we didn't want that! We started with educating ourselves day and night, studying the bulldogs anatomy, history, the origination of the breed, the first bulldogs in the 1800s, bulldog health, temperament and most deeply the bulldog breed standard. This went on for years. We are STRONG believers that you have no business creating new living things ("lives") if you are not fully educated with the credentials to back it up.
John Singleton-ABDUCTION Director with "SHRINKABULLS TITAN" filming for TROIX Magazine
When it came to this point in our life we were showing some nice AKC bulldogs that were doing some winning in the ring. But my wife and I were still unsettled/unsatisfied. The quality of all the dogs in the local dog show rings at that time were just so so and they were mostly all closely related to each other. The breeders goals were to get their dog to beat its sister or cousin dog whom their friends owned. We felt unsatisfied, wanting something different or potentially better. Our luck changed one day when a young bulldog puppy imported directly from England was introduced to us at show. He was by far better quality than any bulldog I had ever seen. He was shorter, thicker, with an amazing big brick shaped, correct head, wide square jaw. Just no comparison to the bulldogs we have previously encountered in the AKC show world. From that moment on we were changed. We knew we had work to do to get what we wanted & no amount of money, time, distance, education, searching, begging was going to stop us. We felt like if we are not going to breed for the best than we aren't going to breed at all. So we had just found the answer to our prayers.
Through the next several years we began researching day and night bulldogs pedigrees. We started traveling extensively attending World and International dog shows in other countries to compare the quality of different bloodlines around the world (at these shows the best dogs in the WORLD show against each other). After about 5 years of extensive research we were convinced that the best Bulldogs in the WORLD are directly from the best pedigrees in Great Britain. Reason being the breed originated in England, the gene pool is wider, the breeding rules in KC (English "Kennel Club") are much more strict than AKC. The dogs in England have NOT been nearly as inbred & out-crossed with other breeds as commonly happens in America. The BEST original British lines are shorter, smaller , more true to form, type, with much better heads, squarer jaws & typically less health problems. We not only researched the English pedigrees but hand picked the absolute BEST all around dogs in England that we want to incorporate into our breeding program. My first love was " WORLD ENGLISH CHAMPION MERRIVEEN MAKE MY DAY" aka "Jerry" (keep in mind that a WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP IS THE HARDEST TITLE FOR A BULLDOG TO ACHIEVE). Only ONE Bulldog in the WORLD earns this title per year! Also the English Champion titles in KC are at least 20 times harder to achieve than an American AKC Champion title. This speaks volumes about the quality of these dogs. Back to Jerry, he is widely considered to be the GREATEST Bulldog who ever lived. Unfortunately at the time I wasn't able to find any connection to him.
ACTOR RAMI MALEK Bad to the Bone/Twilight Breaking/Night at The Museum with "Shrinkabulls Titan"
Our first UK import was a beautiful red and white male called “BLAZE" (now KC & AKC reg ) with a wonderful British pedigree that just amazed us. It was so much better and different than the pedigrees we were accustomed to seeing in the US. Also the Championship titles had at least 20 times more value as they are so much harder to achieve! His sire was: AM AKC CH Mystyle Warrior Ocobo , his grandsire the already world renowned "UK CH ROLEX OCOBO (top undefeated puppy UK 2005) & winner of the "KAMELTROPHY" the most prestigious in all of the UK. His other grandsire is top stud UK 2005, 2006 & 2007 CH Ringablok McDonald Mystyle. Needless to say we were over the moon with him. I flew into London Heathrow INT Airport to get him, I rented a car (which made my trip extra exciting as it was my first intentional experience at driving on the left side of the road for any given length of time). I drove to the breeders home and had the privilege of meeting his mother and siblings. While I was in England on this (my first trip) I took many photos and videos of Blaze and I all over London. I still have videos of Blaze walking around London and across London Bridge. It was a wonderful experience, one of many to come. Blaze flew home on the same plane with me, which took a little fancy foot work :) On my next trip to London England I brought home Jersey Girl aka (Surybul Franky). Little did I know how much this little girl would one day mean to our family and breeding program. (Her grand & great grand children are some of the best we have ever produced). She also has a GOLDEN British pedigree. Her sire is: CH, JR WORLD CH HillbullHeeza Lord Mystyle UK, grandsire: "UK CH ROLEX OCOBO(top undefeated puppy UK 2005) & winner of the "KAMEL TROPHY" the most prestigious in all of the UK , Other grandsire is the famous "Terlingfair Lord Agril at Mystyle" UK, Her great grandfather is the one & only: Ch, World Eng Ch Mystyle Golden Wonder (UK), Jersey Girl also flew home on the same plane with me!
Actor Tyler Posey (of Teen Wolf/Maid In Manhattan JenniferLopez) with "SHRINKABULLS TITAN" for TROIX Magazine
Back to the first love of our lives " WORLD ENGLISH CHAMPIONS achievements MERRIVEEN MAKE MY DAY" aka "Jerry" who we never gave up on trying to find for years and years, we fell madly in love with his son: "WORLD CHAMPION ENG CH CH/MEX CAPTAIN HUDSON WITH MYSTYLE” aka Jake, to us this was even better because it was 3-4 generations in a row of WORLD & ENGLISH CHAMPION from the VERY VERY best bulldogs inthe WORLD! At the time Captain Hudson aka Jake was considered the most titled/accomplished Bulldog who had ever lived! His achievements list but not limited to as follows:
* WORLD CHAMPION -2002
* ENGLAND CHAMPION -2003
* INTERNATIONAL CHAMPION -2002
* BEST OF BREED -2002
* MEXICO CHAMPION - 2001
* UK CHAMPION
* ENGLAND BULLDOG OF THE YEAR - 2003
* WINNER & BEST OF BREED CRUFTS - 2004 (Crufts is the largest most prestigious dog show in the world )
But I still had a problem FINDING HIM! He had been traveling around the world showing. He had been sold by his original owner out of country & we could not figure out who owned him. We stayed up night & day contacting breeders around the world who had any connection to one of his offspring. I knew this would be difficult because only a very small handful of breeders world wide were lucky enough to get a Captain Hudson son and these sons were aging! I didn't know how but I know with my determination I WOULD NEVER GIVE UP UNTIL I WAS ONE OF THE LUCKY ONES TO GET ONE :)
Romeo Miller (actor, singer, Dancing with the Stars) with "SHRINKABULLS TITAN"
At the same time a breeder friend of mine in Europe owned an amazing World Champion Captain Hudson son. His name is " Lemon Vom Holgozan Hombre" aka "Oskar". He went on to earn the titles of Multi CH, INT CH, NAT CH, GRAND CH. I begged and pleaded for YEARS with her to sell him to me! He would have been the answer to my prayers but the ANSWER I always got was "NO, I CAN'T. I WILL NEVER FIND ONE LIKE HIM AGAIN” of course we already knew this... big sigh for us.
So we kept researching and researching to make a long story short we finally located Champion Captain Hudson's aka Jakes current owner (which was a loooong grueling process). Unfortunately by that time Captain Hudson aka Jake was very old at 9 years old. We placed a deposit for his next born son (mothers side was fantastic English pedigree also). Jake never lived to see his son born. He passed away before my pup was born. We were crushed but still prayed our puppy would be the healthy boy we need and have dreamed of to join our family and our breeding program. I guess good things come to those who wait because he ended up being just that. We cried the day we brought him home and named him after his father "Captain Henry Hudson". Very ironically (AFTER ALLLL THAT TIME!) within a month one of the breeders I had been in contact with for many years contacted us offering us ANOTHER son of "Jake" CH Captain Hudson *"ARG CH, INT CH, AM -CH Aclivis Donche" (who went on to earn his own WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP in the seniors division). Of course we had to say yes, so here comes Donche joining our family!
Actress/singer "BRIT MORGAN" True Blood SHE-WOLF with "SHRINKABULLS TWILA"
What takes the cake is right after we were blessed with these two angels with the best pedigrees that we had dreamed of for years , with the best quality in the world after years of grueling work to get them my handler friend whom owned "Multi CH, INT CH, NAT CH, GRAND CH Lemon Vom Holgozan Hombre" aka "Oskar contacts us and said she is having a baby and now can't keep Oskar!! Do we want him?? We almost fell over! Talk about feast or famine! We could never say no! We have wanted that dog since he was born! So here comes Oscar to join the family. This has been many many years ago now but I still recall looking at my 3 boys thinking "I guess hard work & perseverance pays itself off sometimes". We are well aware of how rare & hard to come by these dogs are. Hardly anyone has this quality and extremely amazing pedigrees now, even in England. And now my family has 3. WOW!
OUR DAUGHTER WITH OUR FRENCHIE PUPS
One of the latest Bulldogs we traveled to England to import & brought home with us was "Captain Morgan Of Wales". He is a Jr Int Champion now , AKC C.G.C titled & KC registered. We will probably put him in the AKC show rings in 2014. He was born in 2009 but is near perfection conformationally. We had to be on a waiting list for two years to be blessed with Morgan! His looks and pedigree are unbelievable. Needless to say he was well worth our time waiting, traveling and the financial strain involved! We have always been in love with his sire, “WORLD FAMOUS "MULI CH OCOBO FREDDY MYSTYLE" aka FREDDY. Freddy is also a world renowned Bulldog whose achievements to my knowledge can only be compared with Captain Hudson's. Freddy's titles are listed here:
* UK CHAMPION
* INTERNATIONAL CHAMPION
* DUTCH CHAMPION
* DANISH CHAMPION
* LUXEMBURG CHAMPION
* BELGIUM CHAMPION
* GERMAN CHAMPION
* GERMAN VDH CHAMPION
* BULLDOG OF THE YR NETHERLANDS 2004
* BULLDOG OF THE YR NETHERLANDS 2005
* BULLDOG OF THE YR NETHERLANDS 2006
* EUROPA SIEGER 2005
*BEST IN CLASS IN CRUFTS DOG SHOW UNDER JUDGE CAROL NEWMAN,
Needless to say he is also one of the most achieved, amazing Champion bulldogs who ever lived.
Another standard color home bred dog of ours whom helped mold the direction of our breeding program is "TITAN”. "TITAN" is another wonderful foundation for our program! Titan has become a world famous celebrity Bulldog. Born here at our home in 2009. Titan is not only from the best lines in the world with our multi Champion pedigrees behind him but he is also famous for capturing hearts in Hollywood! Titan has the face you will see and never ever forget! Titan made his debut in Hollywood early 2010 with actress Analeigh Tipton of The Green Hornet for TROIX Magazine. Analeigh is actress of "The Green Hornet" movie, Warm Bodies movie & others). Titan has a very impressive showbiz career going. So far it includes published photo shoots and magazine spreads with top Young Hollywood actors and actresses such as Shay Mitchell (Pretty Little Liars), Rami Malek (Twilight: Breaking Dawn), ad Michael Murray of One Tree Hill, Latin pop star and actor Diego Boneta (Rock of Ages), Angela Sarafyan (Twilight: Breaking Dawn), Director John Singleton (Boyz in the Hood, Abduction),Ian Harding (Pretty Little Liars), Rami Malek (Twilight: Breaking Dawn, The Pacific, Battleship), singer/actor Lil Romeo, Tyler Posey (Teen Wolf, Maid in Manhattan), Sam Huntington (Being Human, Superman Returns), Benjamin Stone (Nine Lives of Chloe King), Tyler Blackburn (Pretty Little Liars, Ravenswood), Tony Oller (The Purge, Beneath the Darkness), International Pop Star KEANA and more. We are working on having Titans own movie coming out in 2014. We are currently using Titan to mold the future of our breeding program. These are examples of just some of the standard color bulldogs that we have spared no expense, time money or emotion in adding the best to our breeding program. Many of these dogs are older now and are in 3rd, 4th & 5th generations of our breeding the highest quality of bulldogs.
OUR BEAUTIFUL HOME BRED LILAC MAGNUM
As for our rare colored dogs, most pet people as well as rare color breeders consider us to have the very best rare color dogs that have been produced as a whole. We have spent many years and generations breeding our fantastic standard pedigree British lined bulldogs with our rare colors to achieve the goal of the most beautiful most highest quality, pedigree, looks in a unique exotic coat color. Just to explain a little about our rare color breeding program as it has a large reflection on our breeding program at this point. We fell in love with a couple rare color bulldogs over 5 years ago. After giving this lots and lots of thought and prayers (being that we are show breeders) we decided about 5 years ago to take the leap and add these colors to our breeding program. This proved to be more difficult than we had first imagined as the rare color genes were so limited and most of the dogs in these colors were way below the standards that we were accustom to breeding. We aren't the type of breeders who can just cut down on quality once we have achieved it. We started with a couple fantastic black bulldogs that were not from the common rare color lines. We physically traveled out of country to bring our first black bulldog home! He was VERY nice quality. I was in love! Still not up to my standards but VERY nice still. About a year later we acquired Shrinkabulls Winston Jonas a blue & white puppy whom we later sold to singer JOE JONAS (of the Jonas Brothers) & Ashley Greene (of the Twilight move serious). After we let Winston go we were lost on where to go with our rare colors. God must have heard our prayers because the day after we returned home from Hollywood (still in bed jet lagged) the light shined on us).
Our puppy Titan at Green Hornet movie premiere with Actress Analeigh Tipton (star of Green Hornet)
We received a phone call offering us the most amazing beautiful blue tri AKC registered male bulldog puppy who had ever been born. He was not related to any other rare color bulldogs. (Note, at the time the rare color bulldog gene pool was very very small). So we jumped right back on a plane back to LA to meet him. Little did we know at the time just how much this new puppy would change our lives forever! We could however tell from the first moment he was something very very special. Most rare color breeders started offering us unheard of amounts of money for him, to which we took offense! He was ours, we started guarding him like we do our human children. He went on to break every record set for rare color bulldogs! He achieved the name in titles as "INT CH Shrinkabulls Ace B.Y. BLUES C.G.C. AKC , FCI INT CHAMPIONSHIP". As for OFA health testing his CARDIAC OFA IS A+, OFA LEGS patella & knee came back A+ perfect also, OFA SKIN, perfect OFA BLOOD THYROID, OFA BAER test also A+ perfect hearing!
He would also become a wonderful foundation dog for our rare color breedings as he is blue tri color and he carries the rare DNA for chocolate, meaning he can produce every rare color in a quality that had not yet been seen before. Using this wonderful dog to achieve goals we have been yearning for for years in the rare colors we began to breed him with some of our British import females & Multi World Champion pedigreed home bred females which we felt were a good conformation pairing. This is a very LONG tedious task as the first 1 - 2 generations produced only carry rare colors but do not outwardly display the colors themselves on the dogs coat.
Outside of him becoming a world record breaker and producer for rare color bulldogs to top all this off he is a famous celebrity bulldog himself! Starring in many celebrity music videos, magazines & photo shoots. Here is a video of him filming in Hollywood with pop star KEANA , SAMUEL LARSON (SINGER , ACTOR) OF TV SERIES GLEE & Kirby Bliss Blanton actress from movie Project X & Chris Brown's latest music video "MORE LOVE" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eWoLhWZMC0w
Another amazing foundation rare blue color bulldog that we own and helped breed is our Blue Legacy. He is also blue tri color with chocolate DNA. He is AKC and CKC (Canada) registered. He was born in 2011 to our Tux & Ocean! Legacy was our only puppy back from the litter. We originally had Legacy sold to a family out of country for a very large amount of money but at 8 weeks old we took one look at him with his HUGE wrinkly baby face, large expressive aqua eyes, small short cobbie body & funny personality and said "NO", "HE ISN'T GOING ANY WHERE, FOR ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY". (Of course the family wanting him wasn't happy but we offered them a refund or a puppy sired by Ace which we never do, so they ended up JUST as happy).
OUR HOME BRED BLUE & BLACK PUPPIES
As a young puppy Legacy started his celebrity acting career off early! By nine or 10 weeks of age he was on MTV and featured in a Hollywood music video with pop star Cher Lloyd. In her US music video of "WANT U BACK", this video ended up being a smash hit all over MTV and as of now has been viewed well over 100 million times! Ironically we don't watch MTV much or keep up on celebrity status. So it has been pretty exciting just flipping through TV channels and just passing by MTV and seeing Legacy's face HUGE on our wide screen TV as he is sitting next to us by the couch :) He has also been featured in other music videos with singers such as CHANTEL and photo shoots with pop stars, singers and actresses. Most of all Legacy has a wonderful personality! He is perfectly healthy & loves every person he meets. And as for our breeding program & the bulldog breed in general he has produced some of the most amazing puppies ever produced anywhere. We feel at this point Legacy is by far the best producer of purple lilac tri puppies in quality, type and CUTENESS! Out of his last litter we kept every puppy because they were just too very nice to let go. Legacy is one of our special boys that have tremendously helped mold the future of not only our breeding program but the quality of the AKC Bulldog breed in general. His page is: http://www.miniature-englishbulldogs.com/shrinkabull-blue-legacy.htm.
We are also very excitedly looking towards the future with two very special litter mate 5 month old puppies ("Jax" & Katana") sired by Legacy & grand-sired by Ace. These puppies are a 3rd generation of our breeding rare colors. They are extreme examples of quality with color. Both are also 3rd generation of famous celebrity bulldogs. Both having huge roles in Hollywood scenes themselves taking after their father & grandfathers. If you go onto our website & click on BLUE LEGACY's page you will find photos of both these amazing puppies. We also have many videos of them on our Youtube. "Jax" to start with is a VERY VERY rare purple lilac tri color AKC bulldog with bright red/tan points. He actually looks lilac in color. He is very very exotic looking with bright aqua eyes! He has a huge head, lots of wrinkles, he is short backed, cobby body, square wide fore-face, short low set spike tail with straight legs, good movement & he is 100% HEALTHY. I'm so proud he is a 3rd generation of our production. Celebrity wise: At his young age Jax has already been featured in many celebrity videos, shoots and films such as VERY FAMOUS SINGER "Jason Derulo's" new music video "TRUMPETS", World premiere of 'Sevyn Streeter' -"IT WON'T STOP” music video with "Chris Brown" , NBA star "Dorell Wright" of the Portland Trail Blazers, many celebrity video shoots with singer/actress such as "KEANA". Katana is our beautiful very small AKC blue tri color little girl! Her quality can't be beat. She is so SHORT, tiny, boxy, big headed, with beautiful all around color and conformationally correct. Everyone who sees her goes crazy over her! As for her celebrity she has been featured in video & photo shoots with the boy group "The Janoskians", pop star KEANA, she was featured in singer PIA MIA music video of "RED LOVE" and in celeb shoots at Miley Cyrus’s Hollywood home with her brother Trace Cyrus.
As for our French Bulldogs, Blue Moon sums it up. We only breed frenchies on a very small scale and through hard work and God answering our prayers we were blessed with the best foundation Frenchie we could have ever dreamed of. Blue Moon is the very very rare blue tri color Frenchie. He is AKC and FCI registered. His DNA is solid blue and tri color. He was the first and only male French bulldog of the rare blue tri world as 2011 . He still considered world wide to be the BEST to have ever lived. Looks-wise Moon is just outstanding. He is one of those Once In a Life Time dogs. He has a BEAUTIFUL big wrinkly face, short thick body, wide chest, very muscular build, expressive face and shiny coat with a great personality and perfect OFA health. Blue Moon is also a famous celebrity AKC frenchie. He has been in many celebrity music videos himself. To name a few 5-Star and pop star KEANA.
A number of Blue Moon's puppies have also went on to become famous. Some examples include his son "Buddy", rare blue frenchie puppy who was featured in singer pop star Cher Lloyd's music video "Oath” which has been viewed over 50 million times. Singer Cher Lloyd fell in love with Moon & went on to adopt his blue son Buddy whom ended up being the singers second Shrink-A-Bull puppy as she had already gotten Sharon, an English Bulldog from us the year before. Other famous Moon children bred by us are "Blue Luna" who has been featured in Hollywood Magazines, photo shoots with actress such Leven Rambin actress from hunger games & the Percy Jackson movies. Singer actress Keana in music video "ANOTHER LITTLE PIECE OF YOU" and many others celebrities. Another Moon daughter we home bred is "Blue Ivy" a beautiful little blue tri color female frenchie owned/bred by us who also went on to be a very famous celebrity frenchie. She has been featured in LIFE AND DOG magazines with pop stars (at Barns & Nobles Books now), has been featured in celebrity videos and magazine shoots with actor from Wizards of Waverley Place star Gregg Sulkin. Pop Star KEANA in LIFE AND DOG MAGAZINE, Featured in celebrity shoots with actor Nat Wolff and actor/singer Braison Cyrus (Miley Cyrus's brother) just to name a few.
What we have written here is obviously just a brief biography of how we started and some of the beloved dogs/family members who helped us on our way and will be helping us keep improving with every litter and every year to come. I had no choice but to leave out some of our irreplaceable dogs who touched our lives and helped mold the future of our breeding program as well as the Bulldog breed as a whole.
At home our dogs are the love of our lives! They are our therapy, we take such pride in them and what we have been able to accomplish with them in the last 20 years. They are our happy lights! When we come home from stressful work days & stressful family situations our 'bullies' know! One look with those beautiful big expressive eyes and its like a weight being lifted off my shoulders. It has been proven that dogs are therapeutic and people with dogs live longer and people with children live shorter lives so I guess we evened out as we have many 4 and 2 legged kids! After reading about our bloodline and family you can see why we make people fill out applications for approval and give us references before they adopt a puppy from us. We worked many years to create the dogs and quality we have and we care very much about their future happiness and safety. We know that the homes we choose will govern the whole outcome of their future lives after they leave us. That being the case we genuinely feel an emotional connection to the new families our puppies go to! If they will allow it they soon become extended family to us through our 4 legged babies we worked so many years to create. We want our puppy owners to have the same happy feelings with their bulldogs as we do ours. If the puppy owners are happy then in turn our puppies will be happy.
I strongly feel that raising a bulldog with a child can have a huge impact on the child's future personality in a 'compassionate care of others' way. And also our puppies future personalities in the their new homes! For example we have five children, two older teenagers & three toddlers. The teenagers of course fight over phones, clothes, friends & movies. The toddlers fight over toys, candy, books, cartoons and of course mommy and daddy's attention. Then, in walks one of our bulldogs and its a whole different ball game. The toddlers start hugging and kissing the bulldog trying to give him their candy and share all their things with him. Bulldogs are so sweet and have such expressive faces that they pull compassion out of children. So now from the child who is being selfish, thinking of defending his things from his siblings, suddenly is overtaken by a feeling of 'ahhhhhhh.. I love you and want to share with you'. That pours out into their personalities as they grow older. My toddlers and teenagers alike have learned to have a type of fellow feeling where they want to save any lost or hurt animal (turtles off the road, birds, kittens, lost dogs) but also small children that look lost or sad, elderly people that need help in the grocery store. When my kids get that heartfelt look like they want to help it is the exact same look that they have gotten for years with our bulldogs when they look at them. Like their heart is going out to someone else (and not just thinking of themselves). I notice a dramatic difference in my children's compassion for other living things than some of my children's cousins & close friends who do not own bulldogs. I remember a couple Summers ago when my 16 year old son had a party with a bunch of his friends. My son has a hard time socially so he desperately wants to fit in. I overheard the boys talking outside at about 9:30 pm when one of the boys said he wanted to take an electric fly swatter to the neighbors cat for fun. The other boys agreed and snickered. However my son said NO WAY! Then the boy started trying to shoot a bee bee gun at them. When I stepped out my son had the boy in a headlock. I said I'm sorry we don't believe in any type of animal abuse. My son said party is over you all need to leave now (mind you they had a big jet ski trip planned for the next morning) that my son was so excited about. After the boys left my son went & sat on the coach for hours with his bulldog in his arms almost in tears. Right then it hit us that as parents we were doing a great thing by raising our children with such an expressive human-like breed that causes our children to feel for others.
Our children have been amazing in helping us socialize our puppies before they go to their new homes because they love the dogs & puppies so much. As mentioned we hand raise the puppies every 2 hours in a sterilized nursery, so in order for the kids to help us nurse the puppies they must be very clean too which is very hard to do every two hrs. When I don't let my 3 year old little girl come in a help me feed puppies (to avoid the sterilization ritual) she will lay outside the nursery door, cry & beg until I often cave in. When she helps me feed she will softly pat & talk to the mother dog before moving on to pat & kiss each puppy. Then before we put the puppies away into their incubator box to sleep she will give each one a kiss. The last litter we had she even started helping me potty them (puppies need stimulation for the first two weeks to go potty, they can't do it on their own).
Watching our pedigree turn into such amazing dogs over the years of our hard work is so rewarding but the real gift is seeing our children grow up with them and develop the same love, joys & irreplaceable memories. If you go on our youtube channel youtube.com/shrinkabulls you can see life stages videos that show how our puppies grow up in our family & with our children. We even have life stages videos you can go see that will warm your heart. They show the whole process from starting with the ultrasound - to the c-section - us hand raising the puppies & every week as they grow up. You can see how our children are a part of every process. Many people have told us that the video made them cry as they could see the joy & excitement on our kids faces when the puppies were born and then the loving strong bond that was formed as time went on. (Yes we often let or young children watch in the operation room as the puppies are born via c-section.) Bonding starts from day number one! This type of socialization, love & hard work that goes into our puppies is what is passed on to the new owners when they acquire a puppy from our family. We hope to bring these same therapeutic, happy feelings to our new puppy owners families :) I guess I have rambled on enough about the bullie side of our family. If you go to our website get ready to see the cutest most loved English & French bulldogs you have ever seen before :) Make sure you look at all our pictures & videos. They will make you smile, I’m sure.”
REESE & BIRD
SHRINK-A-BULLS / QUALITY BREEDING
"”We breed only the very best quality English & French Bulldogs. Our bloodline is one of the best lines you can find world wide. Our commitment to quality is why we consistently produce healthy, well tempered and amazingly beautiful dogs. We also have lot's of helpful information on our web site for those interested in a bullie pup. We hope to hear from only the best homes for our babies so please understand that not everyone will be approved. This is one of the biggest differences between us and most other breeders. We do our homework, spend the money and time and we make good decisions based on years of experience, not just convenience!
ANY BUSINESS THAT CAN ADMIT THEY MADE MISTAKES AND CORRECTS THOSE MISTAKES IS A BUSINESS YOU CAN TRUST AND WORTH DOING BUSINESS WITH .
As stated above we are committed to 100% owner satisfaction. We are always looking for ways to improve. Being that we are not an actually business but rather a small hobby breeder I'm sure this is easier for us than it would be a large company. We are VERY proud to say that we have never had any legitimate complaints to our knowledge. In almost 20 years we have only had 2 complaints that we know of. One was mistaken identity of someone else not sending someones deposit back in which the author rebutted & apologized. The next one was 100% fabrication (possibly another breeder or mis-unformed person). The author said we aren't dog breeders at all and we are not registered. Obviously our easily verified credentials such as our 2013 AKC & WE GO LOOK home inspection, one look at our website, photos & videos anyone can see that we are clearly very reputable & knowledgeable breeders with many years under our belts. Some of our dogs are 7 & 8 generations of our pedigree breedings. We have life stages videos, new born videos, c-section birth & surgical breeding videos showing our breedings actually taking place down to videos of our puppies growing up in all different growth/life stages. We are happy to share these with anyone wanting to learn about us.
After speaking with the management and emailing anyone who filed a complaint in the past, Ripoff Report is proud to give Shrink-A-Bull a positive Rating. They made efforts to ensure that all customers were satisfied and owner Abe Ward assured Ripoff Report that the business has and always has had business model that features customer satisfaction as the top priority, only trumped by "making sound decisions about our program and where our puppies go. This means that, yes, we may refuse to place a puppy with you. But this is not an ordinary business. These are precious living beings that deserve great care. If a certain person can't proved the right kind of loving INDOOR home, then we will move on to another family”.
The owner of Shrink-A-Bulls, stated “We carefully consider all customer complaints and use them as tools to improve our customer service. Our puppy families are very important to us and their satisfaction is of the utmost importance. We value each of the great families who take in one of our pups, and look forward to continually improving our breeding program so that we can continue to offer the best and highest quality bulldogs anywhere”.
“Give us some quote from management or owner of the company here: "Our goal is simple yet extremely difficult: To produce the best Bulldogs for our breeding program and to place the puppies in the best, most qualified homes!”
STATED IMPROVEMENTS FROM SHRINK-A-BULLS.
They’re new policy is to always contact all customers to gather valuable feedback so that they can continue to adapt and deliver the best dogs possible and to keep good feeling and communication with all puppy families. They are willing to go beyond the call of good customer service and, in the event anyone is unhappy do what it takes to make things right with their customers in any reasonable manner. We do offer a one year health guarantee for listed congenital defects. However, in any event we try to do what we feel is truly fair and reasonable. To treat others the way we would expect to be treated.
WHAT TO LOOK OUT FOR IN THIS INDUSTRY
Most breeders are just breeding without true knowledge of the breed just to pop out puppies to make a profit. Often times these puppies look mixed-bred or have many health problems. This is one reason that we STRONGLY suggest that buyers never purchase puppies from pet stores! highly credible organizations of both "AKC" & "WE GO LOOK" in 2013Buyers should also be wary of breeders who don't ask questions that help find out what type of home the buyer would make for one of their puppies. The bulldog breed has many health issues due to how oddly they are built & many bulldogs don't even look like the breed. Try to by a puppy If a breeder puts many years of work, love and every type of investment possible into creating their puppies like Champ Bulldogs does you can be sure they are going to care about those puppies futures & where those puppies go! In return the buyers are MUCH more likely to get what they are looking for; a healthy, high quality puppy with a good temperament. Because that puppy came from many years of educated knowledgeable breeding, not just two dogs randomly bred together just to make puppies to sell to the public. Shrinkabulls truly cares about the puppies/dogs they breed & about the new families who adopt the puppies that they have strived for so many years to produce. That being said they go the extra mile and spare no expense in producing the best dogs possible and taking the best care of them possible. They have over 30 years of combined experience and the valuable knowledge that comes from it. This deep knowledge and experience guides every decision they make with regards to their breeding program. More often than not breeders take the path of least resistance and cut corners as it's extremely expensive and time consuming to go with the best breeding decisions and truly improve the breed. Shrink-A-bulls only uses the highest quality, health pedigree & temperament of dogs for their breeding program. This breeder does OFA health screening. All mothers have the best supplements/diet when pregnant. This breeder feeds organic 4 star dog food kibble mixed with home cooked fresh foods consisting of fresh meats (fish, chicken, turkey eggs), vegetables, cod liver oil & many other supplements based on years of researching this dog breeds individual needs. All mother dogs are bred surgically, receive ultrasounds in pregnancy, prenatal vet visits, C-section birth & all puppies are hand raised every two hours after birth in an incubator located in the puppies sterilized nursery.
