Who We Are

Hello Bulldog Fans!! We are located

just north of Minneapolis, MN. Our

Bulldogs are our Family. We started

raising English Bulldogs in 2014.

And French Bulldogs in 2016. We ask

that anyone interested in our pups takes

their time to come out and meet all of us

prior to pups being born, (as we do not

have any visitors until our babies have

had their first vaccine at 8+ weeks). It's

a great way to get to know our fur

babies personalities, ask any questions

you might have, and have an idea of

what your new family member will look

like at maturity!

In my eyes I do not raise Bulldogs,

I create new family members. I

absolutely love what I do! I am

home with my fur kids full time and wouldn't have it any other way. I am not a "hobby

breeder" raising Bulldogs is  my world, my entire life revolves around my fur babies. Creating

healthy family members that you are able to enjoy for many many years is my first

priority when breeding. This is why health testing is so important to me. We health test

our Bulldogs through Embark. They are checked for over 160 genetic conditions. If a dog is

found to have one of the conditions they will not be entered into our breeding program.

Although the testing can not ensure that our babies will be 100% healthy their entire lives,

it does cover a large majority of major health issues. This is also why we have had our

lines for 4 generations. A conscientious breeder knows, loves, and is proud of their lines.

Keeping puppies from our lines is something we will always do because knowing the lines

is what needed to produce healthy puppies. Be leery of breeders who do not hold back

from their lines - there is no reason to breed a dog if their quality isn't good

enough to hold back from.

Please do your research when you are looking to add a new member to your family. Don't be

afraid to ask questions, lots of questions. Spend some time talking with your breeder and

getting to know them, let them get to know you. I LOVE "talking dogs" and enjoy getting

to know our future puppy parents. Maintaining a relationship with our puppy parents

is extremely important to me. I want to know how our babies are for their entire lives, not

just the first week or two after they went home. Also, don't be afraid to contact their

previous puppy buyers and/or ask other breeders about them. Be pro active so you don't

need to be reactive. Go see their home, meet the breeder, meet the puppies parents.

Seeing the environment that your new puppy is raised in is extremely important; if a breeder

does not want you to come to their home they likely have something to hide.

All of our mommies are at our home for you to meet. We do not put our girls into

"guardian homes." They are all raised here by us and will stay with us until they are spayed

and have found their perfect forever home. We do have a couple of our 

boys that went to live with our family once they were close to two and we had time to watch

them grow and mature physically, socially and mentally. We prefer to use our own boys that

we know are happy and healthy verses stud dogs that we have no way of truly knowing

much about. Therefore, we do have more males than usual. So having them with family

helps keep dominance issues at bay here at Sherburne Refuge. We also do not have our dogs

in crates. Using wire crates in a breeding program is absolutely ridiculous! We have invested

in making sure our fur kiddos are happy, healthy and comfortable.

Adding a Bulldog to your family is a BIG deal! Make sure you are ready for the long term

commitment of being owned by a Bulldog.

*We do not ship our puppies. You must come to our home to pick up your 

puppy. It is important that you see where your baby is being raised.
