We searched for a very long time and spoke to many different breeders trying to find the best stud for Juno we could find. We picked out a stud we were very happy with. Yet something didn’t feel right. We loved the dog and were excited for the puppies, but we both really felt that we wanted to have our own stud.
Well I searched high and low. I searched through just about every website on the IOEBA site and could not find anything we were happy with. I found a couple dogges, but each of them were either too small, way to expensive, or had questionable reasons for selling the dog. My wife and I are always weary of purchasing an adult dog, so we wanted to make sure to find a great match with Lincoln being small and a baby on the way.
After another dog did not pan out we gave up. We didn’t think we would find a suitable stud. Then as I was randomly searching for ideas on websites and how to run our business I came across Strong Family Bulldogges in Iowa. The price was right, the dog looked great, and the people were tremendously helpful and informative. It all felt meant to be.
We were told he was a great dog that was good with kids and was very obedient.
A little more than a week later we were picking him up at the airport. A strange experience in and of itself. He missed his layover in Detroit, How does a dogge miss their layover? We had to wait another 2 hours for him to land.
Once he came out of the crate we knew it was a perfect match. What a great dog. He has the best temperament and is so obedient. Plus he is a beast and will make some great puppies. As soon as you start petting him he rolls over to his back and just wants you to rub his belly. Even for my one year old son.
Sometimes things seem to be meant to be. I think this was the case here. We are very lucky to have Ringo here with us. We look forward to a long future with Ringo.
