Burkhalter, named after the Hogan's Heroes character, was about the cutiest pup I've ever seen.  He was a strange one though, and showed very little energy or prey drive as a pup.  He was overlooked when his brothers went to the state patrol, and was put in a pet home instead.  Here, genetics slowly but surely "did their thing" and within a few months the pet home was calling to say he was "too much".  Too much indeed! His breeding had developed in him and he was one lively, wirely, prey driven bulldog!  He even caught birds out of the air and piled them carefully on the deck.

Thanks to my good friend Cyd Cross of Out of the Pits rescue in New York, I was able to find Burkie a fantastic home with dog sport trainer Susanne Bunny.  Burkie could not have found a better home! He is a much loved companion to Susanne's young son, as well as having achieved his schutzhund titles in three straight trials. He has also qualified for the Therapy Dog Int., title, his "B", his TT temperament test and Canine Good Citizen title. 

I will forever be indebted to both Cyd and Susanne for this wonderful home. 
Dogs Produced By Boldog Kennel 
The Boldog Kennel breeding program is closed. I never sold to the public, only producing for myself and friends. I am no longer physically able to breed American pit bulls. These litters were culled at birth, again at 8 weeks when they are professionaly evaluated for structure and then anytime after that if I feel a pup does not represent what I want going out under my name.  

Culling (humane euthanasia or altering depending on reason) of defective or substandard working dogs has a long history - it is how and why we have the good working dogs we have today.  Those who cannot or will not cull should not breed.  What the world needs is BETTER, healthier dogs - not just MORE dogs. 

A lot of breeders talk about culling, but in litters of 10 or 12 never seem to find even one pup that isn't worth selling at a nice price.  Breeders who actually do cull put breeding ethics ahead of monetary gain. 

Even though I have been in the breed almost three decades, you won't find a lot of dogs listed here. The reason is simple: I produce only a very few quality litters and cull hard. The result speaks for itself.

WSP K9 Dilly is from my first litter using my foundation stud Boldog Dirk, SchH III, FR Brevet, CGC. Dirk was bred to my foundation bitch, WSP K9 X-Dog, who went on to become the top rated explosives detection dog for the Washington State Patrol after her litter. K9 X-Dog was one of the finest American pit bull I have seen. 

Dilly and his brother Uno were chosen by the state patrol as pups, and raised up for the job in a pilot program to see if raising puppies was cost effective.  It was decided to scrap the program in favor of buying adult dogs.  Sadly, Uno suffered from an orthopedic issue and had to be euthanised as a pup.  K9 Dilly and his partner have earned the "Trooper of the Year" award for their outstanding work!

Another fantastic home I was lucky enough to come across was that of Chris Underwood of PA.  Amp has been a loving family pet for the Underwoods and, like all Boldog bulldogs, she is a nut about the water.  I don't normally like to place my dogs in a "pet only" home due to their activity levels, but Chris is an experienced bulldog owner and enjoys giving Amp all the swimming and running and flirtpole she can handle!  Homes like this make it all worth while.

Sligo went to one of my best friends and dog buddies, Heather Leu of Washington.  This is another fantastic home where Sligo is a beloved family pet and companion to two young boys as well as a competitive agility dog.  He is very near to his agility championship. Agility can be challenging with an unaltered male pit bull, but Heather has done an outstanding job.

Sligo was one of the toughest puppies I've seen. Gritty and grip drive to spare. While he was never trained in bitework, when tested as a 6 year old he pleased me very much.  Everything that had been there as a pup was still there.  Sligo's ball drive is extreme, just the way I like it.    

​Sligo is available for stud service on a limited basis to performance females.

Archie went to a young man who admires performance bred dogs though he is not involved in dogsport. A good, active pet home can be as rewarding and enjoyable for a dog as a perfomance home - it all depends on the owner. I got lucky with Evan Geiger, who adores Archie almost as much as Archie adores him!
