A note to the reader; "Bullys" is intentionally misspelled. As our website is. www.bullysforyou.com.
Our creed is rooted from a famous motto by our late President Theodore Roosevelt and his famous mantra, "Bully for you!"
A motto given up publicly when an individual did something, "Outstanding!"
Our Pups are in every way, "Outstanding!!"
So, Bully for you!! & Bullys for us!!!
We offer a wide range of rare colors and what is known to be the standard or typical color of the Olde English Bulldogge. Or what is imagined as when thinking what a Bulldog's color should be, but isn't.
The Brindle pattern is the breed's primary and their typical color. The original breed's coloring based on their inherent color's found in their combined structural strands found in their DNA. Our Brindle markings (more an atypical, not commonly seen) comes with a serious twist you must see. Colors stemmed from our bulldog's heritage and their ancestral blood lines in coloring. Found in our abstract colors, or our commonly thought of when thinking what a bulldogs color should look like, ot typical color. That is instantly recognized when seeing our "Blue Ribbon" gal, Carmella. A color most imagine when thinking what a bulldog should look like.
The rare colors are inheritance in our Olde English Bulldogges patterns are determined by their genetic code's structures. Or by the Geno-Type's and Pheno-Type's patterns. The "Geno" deals with what the dog will actually look like, while the "Pheno" details with the physical structure of their bloodlines. Consider this, the "geno-type" is what is in the outside, and the "pheno-type" is what you would see on the inside. There are several genetic pattern's locations that genetically determines the dog's colors genetically.
At each locations of their genetic code's, is a pair of genes. Allowing us to combine these codes to arrive at a unique blending of color structure. Recognized by their attached DNA codes tested within our abstract perfection of color in our combined blood lines of our breeding of Oldes. All tested by the University of California Davis, Veterinarian Laboratories & Studies.
Bullisimo who is our lead producing stud. Who's foundation shows Merle. Yet his DNA make-up from the U. C. Davis testing facility shows a documented nexus of colors. Mostly dominating by his father's "Chocolate" coloring and the Tri-Color (three shades of colors) gene type. What I like to say is his most "tastiest" inherent gene pattern offered.
These genes patterns would have to be controlled by the "ky" ( no dominate K) gene code. Where the "Fawn's" colors, who's points woulds have to have the "dd" and is a building block of a recessive code's. Recessive due to the "yi" code that is a recessive gene patterns and their inherent combination. Where the color Blue, or "Dilute" color code is an extremely rare combination of color. Codes that are not common and hardly ever seen. A color that has a very slim chance of occurrence and can be found at JD's Bullys, ergo why the price difference is substantially higher.
Lilac is one of the most misunderstood colors of Oldes. Lilac are nothing but a diluted, or washed out chocolate. Lilac tri-colors must be "ky" (a non-brindle) and "bb" (the "b" causes the black to be a brown, or a chocolate color) and "dd" (dilution gene to get a lighter color of chocolate) a strand that occur in this color's codes. Their nose is typically a liver-pink color and eyes maybe a cobalt blue, or a light turquoise blue, and could be hazel. The recessive genes in this combination are very unlikely, but occurred with success at JD's Bullys.
Producing a litter with Ary, our friend and the proprietor of "One of a Kind Bulldogs" of San Marcos. We produced an array of rare Tri-colors pups from his Lilac dame "Bun-Bun" or Bunny. Where she delivered five Chocolate and 3 Brown Tri-Color beasts, a few chocolate lighter Brindle pups and a White (Ghost) Merle that and are really unique and different looking pups with large heads and thick chests. Making JD's Bullys a part of One of a Kind Bulldog's bloodlines and permanently in their pedigree's. The beginning of their unique color programs and our DNA structures. He actually complained that he hadn't enough pups to sell.
Yet, he kept the pick of our litter for his up and coming Sire and Stud for hire. His Bully Boy II and our boy's junior. Can't wait to see him full grown in 2019. To see if he's equal to his dad's size. Size Ary claimed was not part of his breeding program. Think we all know his real ambitions with his choice. Just look at the size of his paws at 4 months of age.
Traditionally, colored bulldogs that do not have this genotype to produce these rare colors were are considered to be unsafe. That the conservative breeders only strive for the standard colors, or the piebald (2 different types, as tan & white) color type. As my girl with her "Blue Ribbon" registry from One of a Kind Bulldogs and who I lovingly call (Karma for short) my Carmella. The boy below is who she's lovingly calls her "Big Poppy" Our Bullisimo, the "Merle Anomaly" from Newport Mesa, California with 5,000 followers on Facebook.
The "M " locus is the home of the Merle allele code. Merle is dominate, and so denoted by the capital letter, "M". Non-merle is recessive, and denoted by the lower case, "m". Merle is an interesting color, being that all Merle's are heterogeneous, or (Mm). Where the homozygous code's is actually a double Merle, or homozygous dominate and is a dilute of random sections off their coat to a color (usually grey in a black-pigmented) and leaving patches of the original color remaining on their spine area, or through out. As our boy Diesel, a mind blowing and his unique markings as a "Black Brindle" with highlights of Merle and a classification seldom seen with a serious twist. That can only be classified as "gorgeous".
The patches can be of any size and of any coloring on a piebald structure. Which are generally confined to the body and head. But not our Cali (short for Calzini, meaning "socks" in Italian) and a proud Dame for JD's Bullys. Who will have her first litter with the below Chocolate & White piebald stud and a carrier of the Chocolate Tri-Color DNA from Jesse's of "Dirt Road Bullies" and I decide that my first girl, Carmella will have this amazing male for her next litter March of 2019. We will be breeding this November, 2018 with Eddy, of "Good Bullies" of Lancaster that owns his son and shares Jessie's lines. And what a beautiful Black Tri-Color female with the large and great looking head, we hope to buy a pup from Chole's next litter. The stance of this lady had my attention immediately. I will enjoy having her pup in my home for years.
Most breeders are scared off by the thought to breed the white (ghost) colored Merle. That are suspected of being affected with deformaties as deafness and blind visually. Due to the piebald gene, "Sp". Which is demonstrated by their predominated white coat and often having awesome blue colored eyes. The piebald gene, causes the absence of melanocytes and the strains of cells that carries this pigment and the beautiful pups found healthy that listens and sees us here, at JD's Bullys.
Dilutes are also not desired by Olde breeders. Who are scared of deformities. These conservatively safe Olde breeders are not versed in the DNA codes , but not myself. Knowing the genetic codes I found during my research of this breed and lines of canines known as the Old English Bulldogs. I discovered a misconception of colors code's and their bias. That is a missed conceived conception that both ( Lilac & Dilute) are in some way, sickly or are not guaranteed. As to not strive for in their breeding programs. As is with most, recessives genes that I breed consistently and throw nothing but healthy pups.
The dilute allee only fault is in its ability to distribute melanin color's structure evenly through and throughout its hair shaft of their hairline. Or the uneven distribution of color of their coat. Our hundred pound at 8 month our Grigia, (Gi-Gi for short) will strongly differ with that "sickly" comment and is of the opinion of those who are not misinformed of our proven facts, that are seen as "Beautiful" as her pup below her two pictures below.
Proof Found! with another proud and proven Dame, living the life and her "famiglia" genes that has been nothing but healthy. and nothing but great pets for great families. That all can witness, all of our satisfied customers proudly posted and the continuous pictures sent of their healthy and active pups as they have grown and matured. Now are cherished members of their family and are now adults. That we proudly "showcase" on our Instagram page at, gemsbullisimo
Breeders who can produce these colors must have a good understanding of color inheritance patterns and the application of their genetic codes combinations and principles. That most breeders are only in it for the additional income, not for the love of the breed.
JD's Bullys brags with a disdained presence and strong stance to breed a more healthy breed of bulldogs with rare colors. Understanding why others breeders wouldn't strive for what I have. That I wouldn't even attempt such an endeavor without my full understanding and the anomaly of a Stud as my Bullisimo.
Come and enjoy all the free puppy breath you can smell!
At JD's Bullys of Costa Mesa!
