We were looking for a bigger dog since we have 3 bulldogs.
We saw the Picture of the American Bulldog in a magazine.
We knew straight away that, that was the kind of dog we wanted.
We booked our puppy by Marina, in December and couldn't wait for them to be born. We kept in contact with Marina and she let us know on the 17th of January 2008 that the puppies were born, 11 of them...
We were so excited! We still had to wait 6 weeks, which felt like a lifetime...
But at last it was time to go and fetch our baby...
We decided to name him Bonzo. He has bought much happiness to the family, and he adapted well with his brother and sisters. He also became the best of friends with our kitten Tiger.
Bonzo is a lovely puppy, and he loves playing. He is an absolute pleasure to have. When we got Bonzo we knew the house training part was still lying ahead, but we didn't even have to teach him to go outside.
He would wake us up during the night if he needed to go outside, we couldn't believe it. If you are looking for a loveable, active and cleaver dog, we would definitely recommend an American Bulldog.
He also loves playing with children... They just grow up too fast… (hehehe)

As very happy and satisfied new...brand new owners of Max and Clara, we
would like to thank you for your exceptional proffessional approach,
dedication and help with regards to our little pups.
Our story starts as this...........
As a about to be wedded couple, owning a French Standard Poodle we were
llooking for a dog that would socialze well with Lindi. My first choice from
a guy's perspective was a Pitbull but after researching the breed, I could
actually see a pitbull running round with a Poodle in its mouth.....not good
for the marraige...and the dream of owning a dog-dog went out the window!!!!
After realizing that I actually do not know what else to choose I did some
research. I wanted a guy's type dog, big, strong, masculine but that would
be able to keep the marriage strong by socializing with the Poodle...(Gee I
love my Wife!!!). The American Bulldog breed drew my attention. I read up
and researched......did the proposal with facts and it was approved by the
regime!!!! We fell in love with the breed.
Marina's Blue Kennel was approached as the preferred choice of breeder. She
resides in Hazyview (conveniently close to our honeymoon destination). We
wanted to see the adults. Lovely, Great, Exceptional were words that were
uttered in excitement...never mind the Ohhs and As!!!! We were hooked.
Marina had pups on the way. We booked our intention. Two weeks later, whilst
in Botswana, Marina sent the message that the pups arrived. Excitement!!!!
As soon as we were back, we took another trip to Hazyview...to make the
choices. Instead of only one, Sanet convinced me to take another. Max and
Clara were the chosen ones.
Another 4 weeks went by. A kennel, bowls, toys, bedding and collars were
bought during this time. Shopping madness in anticipation of the arrival
On 1 June 2008, we collected Max and Clara......and now we are delighted to
be the PROUD owners of two American Bulldogs.
All inoculations were done by Marina with the needed proof thereof.
Registrations were also done including bloodline history. Max and Clara was
in excellent health and well taken care of. As part of the contractual
obligations, they were taken to the vet for a checkup the next day and were
given a clean bill of health. We also got our first offer for Max....nearly
double the price!!!!! Obviously we declined....there is just NO chance!!!!
We want to thank Marina and her husband Pieter for the service received.
Guys, you are the best....from the start to the end....you proved that you
are what you say you are!!!!!!! Thanks again!!
We promise to keep on sending pics as the little ones grow, going through
their stages. Please post them on the website as proof that this is a truly
exceptional breed. Also, feel free to give out our numbers as a reference to
Thanks again Guys!!!
Christo and Sanet.
