JD hit the ring with a bang the first time out!  It was just three days after his 6-month birthday when he took Best of Winners for his first points.  He remained a consistent winner in a very competitive California/West Coast circuit.  He started out as a well-put-together puppy, and he's matured into a handsome, well-balanced, nicely proportioned dog.  He's a beautiful mover with classic type.  In addition to being structurally sound, he has very good health, having been completed OFA health tested, and has a terrific temperament. 

JD is a well-bred dog and comes to us from breeder/exhibitor Mary Rosborough of Rosborough Bulldogs in Illinois.  His dam's side is full of champions and HOF dogs, and she is linebred on Mary's primary Hall of Fame stud dog BISS Ch. Beulahland's Incred'bl Stormi, a grandson of Ch. Mugshot's Standing Ovation.  This side of JD's pedigree carries a strong bitch line. 

His paternal heritage arises from some of the best English lines through the well-known Sealaville Bulldogs of England.  (The Sealaville line goes back to another well-known English kennel, Britishpride.)  JD's great grand-sire Ch. Sealaville He's The Duke was England's 2006 Bulldog of the Year and sired the 2010 Crufts Best of Breed winner Ch. Sealaville He’s the Rebel.

A special thanks goes to Mary for entrusting us with such a fine dog.  He has such a wonderful personality and temperament and brings such life, love and fun to our home.
