|Notice: there has been much confusion about who we are & if we are affiliated with other breeders who have added our name "Rare Bulldogs" to their name. We are simply RARE BULLDOGS, the first, the one & only, the original RARE BULLDOGS. It is a compliment to us that so many other breeders have added our name to theirs, but it does cause much confusion, especially where the breeder makes the RARE BULLDOGS part of their name more prominant than their real name. This confusion has cost us 2 customers (that we know of) whom would not believe that we were NOT affiliated with a breeder that has evidentally ripped them off. Thus we felt this notice to be neccessary.|
|Loving, Stay at Home, Experienced, Puppy Moms with HOME KENNELS. |
All our babies, young & old alike, are part of our Family!
I have been breeding canines in the Rare Colors of Lilac, Blue, & Chocolate since 1972, and have those same years of education in color genetics and breeding behind me. It is therefore relatively easy for me to understand how the genetics work in producing these colors in canines. I have continued to work with top Geneticists to this day in canine color genetics and learn something new every day. I love sharing my knowledge and helping newcomers with their breeding programs. So as to keep the TRUE Bulldog look, it has been my goal from day one to mix our color lines with our show lines, and will continue to do so in our breeding program, so as to produce the very BEST in Rare Color Bulldogs.
| ||Leighann-Owner/Breeder: |
I was blessed with the first ALL Blue Bulldog litter in the US in 2010 & then joined Rare Bulldogs in 2011. I have many years experience in the color breeding of horses, which is a great background for color breeding. I love this breed and will work diligently to produce Healthy, Quality English Babies. Funny fact: My mom bought me my first dog when I was 6 years old. She realized it was time when she saw me walking the toad that lived in our strawberry patch down the sidewalk with a rope tied around his middle. The toad was unharmed, returned to the strawberry patch, and remained my buddy for several years.
|Leighan & I take pride in our Breeding Program & Strive to Produce the very Best in Rare Color English Bulldogs. |
We are experienced breeders & know how to plan & produce the Quality you see below.
These babies are barely a year old in this photo.
|Read more about us & our breeding history below!|
|Founded in 1998|
|Having been a long time breeder of Rare Color Chinese Shar-Pei, our first kennel name was TuChins Bulldogs of NW Florida. We then adopted the name Best Puppy. On finding out that English Bulldogs could be produced in Rare Colors, we set out to copy our Chines Shar-Pei Rare Color endeavor, thus applying that color program to our beloved bullys and becoming The Original "Rare Bulldogs". We incorporated our Bulldog Show lines in the plan from the VERY FIRST LITTER, & thus kept that bully look & bully standard in our Rare Color productions. Our FIRST RARE LITTER mixing these lines, produced 2 Black Tri Quads, 1 Blue Fawn Tri Quad, & 1 Red Tri. Our Late Champion Bounder is Grandpa to our beautiful black tri Crystal & our first blue boy Dreamer.|

|Hobby Breeder of Top Show Lines...5 year BCA Member|
1998 to 2008
|We were not your typical Show Breeder, but worked closely with, and were mentored by, one of the Top Show Kennels in the Nation. We ALWAYS adopted our future breeding Moms & Studs from top show lines, and were blessed to own our Champion Bounder shown above. We were a member of the BCA for over 5 years. We did not realize that EB's could be produced in Rare Colors until 2008. Because of the controversy with the Rare Colors, we resigned from the BCA, changed our name to Rare Bulldogs, and purchased our first carrier Walker. And so our Color journey begins........We were not your typical Show Breeder, but worked closely with, and were mentored by, one of the Top Show Kennels in the Nation.

|First Rare Color Breeding|
|Our First Rare Color Breeding, mixed with our Champion Show lines. Our Red Tri Quad Carrier Walker x Our Champion Sired white girl Tory. 2 Black Tri's, & 1 Blue Fawn Tri out of 4 pups! ALL 3 of the below pups are |
|First Chocolate Litter|
|Our second Rare Color Breeding and first chocolates, matching Walker with our Red & White Girl Scrunchy. 3 Chocolate Tri Sensations out of 8 puppies! |
Chocolate Sensation Scrunchy Little is the FIRST Chocolate English Bulldog proven to carry BLUE making her the first Chocolate .
The minute we found out that Scrunchy was a Blue carrier, we started the plan for producing the Rare Lilac color. We could have matched her up with our Dreamer, him being a Blue Quad, but were fortunate enough to find that perfect Blue Quad boy, thus adding Treasure to our Family. Scrunchy & Treasure went on to produce the First True Color LILAC ever born, in their first litter! ***See our Landmark Breeding below.

We just received a request to use 4 of our dogs and to work with one of the top Genetic Labs on the complicated black colors, there being 4 or more, in connection with the English Bulldog Breed. Jazzy, Treasure, Chrystal, Chroma, and Dreamer were invited. Of course we accepted.

|So here we are, 14 years after breeding our first EB litter, and only 3 years after our first Color endeavor. We feel very blessed to have accomplished all this. We have endured much hard work, sleepless nights, and tragedy to get to this point, not to mention almost 1 million dollars of financial investment..... no kidding! We consider it not only well worth it, but a great honor to have these beautiful Bully Babies in our lives. We could never imagine being without them as an integral part of our families. |
