Birt’s American Bulldogs is located on a working cattle ranch in beautiful Placerville, CA.  Placerville is on Hwy. 50, about one and a half hours from Lake Tahoe and about one-half hour from Sacramento, CA.

Birt’s American Bulldogs began with “Athena.”  Athena grew up at our oil-and-lube business.  Customers would come in and Athena would let children sit on her, put their fingers in her mouth, and best of all, entertain them.  At that point, we knew we had something special to offer the American Bulldog world.  We bred Athena to Boyd’s/Ostergaard’s Danish Auroch, the 2005/2006 Bully Male Champion.  The 10-pup litter went very quickly to homes across the United States and Canada.  We kept two females from that litter, “Winnie” and “Rebel,” and the three girls became our foundation females.  Athena’s first litter sired by Danish Auroch, went so well that we rebred her the same way.  The 9-pup litter went equally as fast as the first litter, and we ended up falling in love with 2 of the pups, “Belle Brindle” and “Titan,” known as the “Disney dog,” as we were approached by Hollywood dog trainers to train him for the part of the AB in the movie “Beverly Hills Chihuahua.”

Boyd’s/Ostergaard’s Danish Auroch created a great foundation for our breeding program, and since then we acquired “D and D’s Beast of Big Tyme’s,” the 2007 Bully Male Champion, Birt’s/Diehard’s Clockwork Oranje, who earned his championship in 2013, and ABNA Jr. Ch. / Eur. Ch. Wild Wonder’s Gucci, also a 2013 champion.  We are continually striving to create excellence in the American Bulldog.  We are extremely proud to have been one of the 12 U.S. American Bulldog kennels to be included in the "American Bulldog Movie Tour" dvd, produced by Hameau des Bulls from France.

At our El Dorado County licensed, non-commercial kennel, we breed for kindness, conformation, and working ability.  All of our dogs are sold with ABA, ABRA, NKC, or UKC registrations.  Pups are given their required vaccinations and de-worming.  All dogs are sold with full breeding rights and a great guarantee.

American Bulldogs are uniquely wonderful dogs.  They are powerful and dominant, protective and smart!
