KIB (Keeping It Bully): What brought you into the dog-game?
RL (Robert Lee) : I have always loved the pit-bull breed and had interest in breeding, but all I had was a couple regular pits that were unpapered, I preferred the 'thicker' ones, so when I found out about American Bullies, I started looking into breeding and showing, and began to buy some of the first stock for our kennel.
KIB: Where did Beastro come from?
RL: Beastro is off of Gr. Ch. Dogtown's Lock n Load and MyStyles LoLo. He was produced in collaboration with Noy of MyStyle Bullies. Beastro's bloodline consists of mostly Razors Edge blood.
KIB: As a pup, did you ever think Beastro was going to be who he is?
RL: He was an awesome pup, one of the best I have ever seen, and I knew he would be special. Unfortunately, for me, I did a breeding for the first FEMALE instead of the first OVERALL, so I offered big money for Beastro as a young pup. I really had a hunch he would be special.
KIB: Explain to use what titles he holds?
RL: Currently, Beastro is an ABKC Gr. Ch., has 46 Best of Breed wins, and he is currently #1 of all time. He also has two majors at Nationals, 2011 Best Pocket Male and 2012 Best Gr. Ch.
KIB: Are you satisfied with what you have accomplished?
RL: We are very satisfied with Beastro's accomplishments. At this point, we continue to take him out because he enjoys showing, so until he doesn't enjoy it anymore, we will help him build his legacy, both in the ring and through productions.
KIB: Explain to us what 'Bully Market' is?
RL: I came up with the name "The Bully Market" because at the time that I started the kennel, I was really into trading and investing in stocks. When I was planning out my vision and telling my friends and family, I told them it was going to be a Bull market, always on the up-and-up, but a BULLY market. The name basically means "Keeping it Bully" and keep things going well.
KIB: Where do you see yourself in the future?
RL: I wish I knew, LOL. We do have a lot of plans and goals, but I don't like to get too far ahead of myself. I try to enjoy the here and now, and not stress over the past or worry about the future. We're not moving forward blindly folded over here; we do have some plans and vision, but we kind of just stick to an outline and take a day-by-day, week-by-week, month-by-month, year-by-year. That is in reference to the campaigning and the dogs in general.
KIB: Is there anything you have yet to accomplish with Beastro?
RL: We definitely still have some goals in the ring with Beastro, but moving forward, we are really starting to focus toward some of the up-and-coming prospects and productions for 2014 and 2015. We have really been buying the time and building for the future, so we are excited to see what it holds. I feel like we can always do better and improve. It's not about being better than anyone else, but more about being better than what we were before. But I will admit, I do give my brother Nubbz a hard-time if my stats are better than his at any given moment, lol.
KIB: How do you feel about having him on the front cover of KIB magazine?
RL: I think it is awesome, and we are honored to have Beastro on the cover of KIB Magazine. We thank you for the opportunity and feel like it really couldn't have come at a better time, with Beastro currently being the all time leader in wins for our breed. Huge shout out to you guys for doing a great job with your magazine, keeping it professional, and of course, keeping it bully!
*** bullies are not the same as pit bulls as everyone should know, but we only shared this article here because we have nothing better to do with our time, so enjoy anyways ***
