Born April 14, 2012, we launched his show career at the 2012 BCA Nationals in Costa Mesa, CA. He was shown in the
6-9 Month Puppy Dog class and was consistently in the ribbons all week, placing 2nd in Sweepstakes, 3rd in the BCA National Show, and 2nd at the BCA Division back-up show! What a debut, we were so proud of him!
He's been a consistent winner and was quickly pointed with two Best in Sweepstakes, several WD, Best of Winners, RWD awards, three Best Puppy placements, and two Puppy Group placements. He went on to win a Best of Breed from the classes and finished in style with two back-to-back 4- and 5-ooint majors. He was a quick finish, and we can't wait for him to grow up enough to compete with the big boys for a Grand Championship!
To top it all off, Preacher is one of the sweetest dogs you will ever meet. There's no one who isn't a friend, whether you have two legs or four! He's a well-adjusted, happy, easy going dog with great temperament.

Best Puppy at the Kennel Club of Palm Springs shows in January 2013 under Breeder-Judge Dorothy Prager. Preacher later went on to win a Puppy Group 3. The day before he'd taken a RWD/BP/PG4! A great weekend!
Preacher has the most loving and kind demeanor. Classic Bulldog, he simply loves children and is completely fascinated by them. Here he's getting to know Raquel, daughter of Carlos Montoyas, at the October 2012 Halloween Costume Party for the BCGSD. They both took an immediate liking to one another!
Like all of our dogs, Preacher is a model Bullie in temperament and has represented the Bulldog Club of Greater San Diego in the annual Meet The Breed booth hosted by the Silver Bay Kennel Club.

We owe a huge thank you to Kimberly West for handling him on these last and very significant wins.
