Welcome Frenchie Lovers

After experiencing over a decade of success in breeding well socialized, healthy English Bulldogs, we are now devoting a small portion of our time to creating a high quality line of Frenchies.  Our focus is to bring the same level of devotion to healthy bloodline development, health check criteria, and data driven decision making to create a healthy French Bulldog bloodline.  Our mission is to produce high quality, healthy French Bulldog puppies, well socialized in a family centered environment.  We will begin having a few select litters a year starting in 2022 and will only place our Frenchie pups in established, vetted adopter homes.

Health

The building block of Bruiser Bulldogs has always been about health and specifically the breathability of our dogs.  Our criteria for our Frenchie parents are wide tracheas and nostrils that allow for maximum oxygen flow without the deterrence of an elongated soft palate that often restricts breathing ability.  These issues affect the quality of life of French Bulldogs and their adopters.  We are extremely passionate about producing French bulldog that can run, breath and exercise without the breathing issues that many in the breed suffer from.   One solution to these issues is creating a French Bulldog with a lighter wrinkle set and slightly elongated snout while still maintaining the classically adorable French Bulldog look that we have come to love. 

We are also conscientious of other Frenchies specific health criteria such as allergies, eye issues such as distasia and entropion as genetic problems that are to be avoided in a high end breeding program.

Socialization and Personality Profiling

One of the keys to a well-rounded French Bulldog is understanding the importance of developing positive personality traits in at a young age. Proper socialization guarantees that your French Bulldog puppy will adapt quickly to its new family environment, other dogs and pets, and home life. We take pride that all of our Bruiser Bulldog puppies participate in their very own comprehensive socialization program before going home to its new family.

A significant portion of our socialization technique is based in Early Neurological Stimulation.

​This type of methodology is a series of techniques to improve the long term ability of French Bulldogs to adjust to change and environmental stimuli that they might encounter in their new lives. The training we follow was researched and created by Dr. Carmen L. Battaglia. Every French Bulldog puppy is introduced to new experiences and environmental stimulation that aid in developing their behavior and personality. Each Frenchie is introduced to children, other canine friens and (approved) strangers. Experiences like baths and walk time help each French Bulldog puppy develop the necessary experience it needs to help it positively respond to “trigger” environments where negative behavior might be a temptation. Many behavior issues that adult French Bulldogs develop are directly related to their experiences as a puppy. By creating positive, developmental experiences, we ensure our French Bulldog puppies for sale develop into confident, well rounded adults.

​The attention to detail that we create through our socialization program differentiates us from many breeders.  We are often shocked to learn how other French Bulldog breeders raise their puppies. Responsible French Bulldog breeding is not just about providing food, water and basic medical attention to your puppies. Good breeding practices must include daily socialization work with the puppies to ensure they develop properly and are ready to succeed in their new homes.

Adopter Support

Because we believe raising French Bulldog puppies is as a family affair, we understand the importance of supporting our adopters. We offer 24/7/365 support for all of our French Bulldog adopters’ questions. We know trainers and veterinary clinics are valuable in their own right, but often it is hard to find French Bulldog specific advice and information.  Given our extensive experience, we pride ourselves in being experts in all things French Bulldogs and view ourselves as a critical support system for all of our adopters. This is certainly not to say we can replace professional medical and training services, but knowledgeable, breed specific support that actually cares can often times be priceless.  If you are having issues from health to behavioral, we are always just a phone call away. 

Bruiser Bulldog Adoption Process

Matching the correct French Bulldog puppy with its forever home!

Through years of experience, we have developed our adoption process to focus on the compatibility of each French Bulldog puppy for sale with their adopter family. We believe that a successful adoption always starts with placing the correct French Bulldog puppy with the correct family.

Steps of our adoption process:

  1. Verbal Interview –French Bulldog questionnaires are great, but verbal interaction via a phone conversation really cannot be beat. Expect to talk about work schedule, family/pet structure, and expectations to ensure a Bruiser Frenchie is the best fit for you family.

 

  1. Deposit – We require a $500 deposit to join our wait list for the next French Bulldog puppy available or for a future French Bulldog puppy at a specific time of the year.

 

  1. Selecting your French Bulldog Puppy – Once an adopter had made their way through the waiting list, we will begin the puppy selection process. Personalities will be discussed* (read more on this below), and the pro’s and con’s of each French Bulldog puppy available will be weighed before a selection. Ultimately, a puppy selection is made by the adopter, but we will do our best to provide support and information to make the best decision.

 

*French Bulldog Puppy Personality Profiling – In order to ensure we understand (and correctly match) each puppy with their correct family we must understand each personality.  We conduct our personality profiling by spending a large amount of time with each puppy and noting both their energy levels and dominance/submissive levels.  This process requires each puppy to be around 6 to 7 weeks of age before we can confidently profile each puppy’s personality correctly.  Some adopters request (and we deny) to choose their puppy as early as 2 to 3 weeks of age.  This selection approach is short sighted and often ends in disaster as the adopter has no idea what kind of French Bulldog they are purchasing before their selection.

  1. French Bulldog Puppy Prep and pickup information

Once we have matched an adopter with their French Bulldog puppy for sale, we will transition to setting a pickup date and preparing the adopter with a puppy supply list they will need before getting their new French Bulldog puppy!

    I've grown up with english bulldogs my whole life. I am familiar with common and uncommon health problems they may face so when my boyfriend and I decided we were ready to adopt our own english puppy finding a reputable breeder that prioritizes health was most important to us. Erica and Mitch of Bruiser Bulldogs are just that. They are experienced, ethical and quality breeders. I was referred to them by my friend that I trust after I saw their gorgeous healthy puppy. Our Puppy Primrose is the light of our lives! Bruisers was there to assist us every step of the way. We would highly recommend Bruisers Bulldogs to anyone looking for their own happy, healthy pup!

    We, like many of the other people who found Bruisers, did a lot of research to find a responsible breeder, especially since English Bulldogs can have health issues and because there is a trend now for "trendy" bulldogs (blue, etc.) which have even more health issues. We were lucky to have come across Bruiser Bulldogs and even more so the fact that they were near our family and hometown made it even better. We have had Clementine (Callie) for four months now, and she is a wonderful dog. Her personality is amazing, and I think part of it is breeding and the other part is Erika and her family lovingly raising the puppies in their home with plenty of attention and snuggles. I also was impressed that, rather than send the puppies out right at 8 weeks, Erika kept ours for a few extra weeks because she was tiny and not read to leave her mom yet. It's that care that differentiates Bruisers from other breeders.

    We found Bruiser Bulldogs after researching healthy breeding line for bulldog puppies. Erica was easy to work with thru the entire process from application to adopting and now beyond as we host our new family member, Chief. Her on-call support and willingness to provide open, honest advice to all of our questions and concerns continues to be appreciated. We would highly recommend Bruiser Bulldogs to anyone looking for an English Bulldog to join their family.

    Bruiser Bulldogs is a 5-star breeder in every way. Erica and Mitch are trustworthy, excellent communicators, fair, passionate, and produce the best bulldogs.We were at the top of the waiting list for months and Erica reached out every litter to see if we were finally ready for a bulldog. When we were, she was very easy to work with. Her knowledge on bulldogs is outstanding. We had many questions on the process and she always knew what was best for the puppy.We've had Penny (formerly Blair) for two months and she is very healthy, energetic, playful, and sweet. She is great with other people and dogs. We are so happy with our pup.When we are ready for bulldog #2, we will only consider Bruiser Bulldogs.

    We waited a while to write this review so that we had a better sense for the overall health of our Bruiser Bulldog “Bowser”. Bowser was born April 2020 and is an integral part of our family. When we were first exploring English Bulldog breeders our biggest concern was the overall health of the dogs. We decided to work with Erica at Bruiser Bulldogs because we liked their focus on improving the breeds breathing abilities and the fact that the puppies are raised within her family environment before coming home with their new owners.As for Bowsers health, he’s a health energetic English Bulldog that has no problem keeping up with the kids, going on 2 mi walks and camping with us on a regular basis. Bowser also breaths clearly and our vet was impressed with his overall health from the moment we brought him home. All that said we know English Bulldogs have a predisposition to many health issues and that his current health can not predict the future. With that In mind its important to start with a breeder that open to answer any of your questions as Erica has ours, and that strongly believes in improving the breeds overall health profile.

    After the loss of our first English Bulldog due to health issues it was very important for us to find a breeder who did not breed only for aesthetic but more importantly for health. My sister ended up finding Bruiser Bulldogs and we knew right away that they were the breeder for us.In September we ended up driving 9 hours to pick up two Bruiser bulldog puppies- one for my husband and I and one for my mom. Jackson and Penelope have been nothing but a joy. They are very social and very friendly to everyone they meet including kids and other dogs/animals. They are both very athletic and healthy. They are also HUGE snugglers and always want to be with you. It is an absolute pleasure having these two bullies in our lives! My sister and her fiancé also fell in love with them and now are on the waitlist themselves for a Bruiser bulldog!Erica is very knowledgeable about the breed. She is very hands on throughout the process and is just overall a kind and honest person to work with.With all that being said I cannot recommend Bruiser Bulldogs enough!

    We fell in love with our puppy the moment we saw him. One of the reasons we chose Bruiser Bulldogs was due to the claims about breeding for health. During our first visit at our vet's office, he told us that our pup was one of the healthiest English bulldogs he had ever seen. He is healthy, happy and social. Would recommend to anyone.

    What an awesome experience! We seen our dog on their website and sent them an Email. Mitch called us and personally walked us through the process and made sure we had the right dog for our family. We couldn't be happier when we picked up our dog Ramsey, Erica made sure we had everything we needed and then some. They are truly amazing people who breed truly amazing dogs!
