One spring afternoon in 2005, I was visiting my neighbor who raises American Bulldogs. I was attempting to recover from a devastating life change and actually, I went to her house for a sympathetic ear. When I was leaving, I walked past a litter of young puppies playing in the front yard. I commented, "I am a FOOL for a puppy !!!!"Within seconds, she reached into the mound of pups and handed me a beautiful male. She said, "I want you to take this puppy and plant him as a seed. Grow him into your dreams!! Be happy again. I miss your smile."
Well, meet Seeder...my very first male American Bulldog. His trademark eye patches show up on almost all his offspring, as does his one brindle spot at the base of his tail. Seeder helped me to heal, taught me to love again, brought out the best in me, and gave me a goal. Seeder saved my life, my sanity, and my spirit. He, and the Lord above, gave me my SECOND WIND.
Second Wind is proud to announce our new MALE addition, REDMOND !!! Redmond is the son of Seeder and Mercy, born May 2009.
As of January, 2012, Redmond is now 2.5 years young and weighing in at 123 pounds. Redmond produces tall, long-bodied LARGE puppies !! And beautiful colors !! We are really looking forward to his new offspring in 2012 ! THANK YOU GOD for this beautiful, healthy, robust American Bulldog !! Everyone who meets Redmond is taken by his beautiful brindle markings, his enormous size, and his fantastic temperament ! He is a huge lap dog , never met a stranger, LOVES kids and having company !! Redmond lives in the house with me and is extremely protective of our "area". He is every bit as sweet-natured as his Daddy Seeder. I am so privileged to have him !
UPDATE !!!!!.... now TEN YEARS LATER.... Summer of 2015....
I am thrilled to be working with my second generation of breeding stock now, ten years into this wonderful Adventure !!! I thank God for His constant care and provision each and every day ! This is absolutely the BEST time of my life. I LOVE my "job"and consider it a privilege to raise my beautiful, robust puppies here on the farm in southern Missouri !! I want to encourage you to read over the "Testimonial Pages" and see for yourselves some of the remarkable offspring from years past, along with a brief "testimonial" from their families.
