Our newest stud dog here at Second Wind is our pride and joy grandson to our beloved Big Shoes, "Grub". He is a product of mama RichyRich and Daddy Gus. He is phenomenally gorgeous and absolutely the sweetest puppy God ever put on planet Earth !! We are thrilled to have him begin siring in the summer of 2017 and anxiously awaiting his (no doubt) colorful offspring ! He is currently 104 lbs @ 8 months old. LOTS of growing yet to do...I highly suspect he will mature around 135-140 lbs. Grub loves to swim, has an extremely playful personality, never met a stranger, excellent around kids and adults alike. He is best buds with ALL our other dogs here on the farm, as well as the horse and donkey..oh, and the chickens too ! What a love !! Stay tuned for some remarkable puppies coming very soon !!See Photo's →
Redmond is now 8 years old and 130 lbs of pure muscle. He is a high-drive young man; loves to run, swim, play fetch, and be "pampered". Redmond is very protective of the farm, house, yard, and surrounding acreage. At the same time, he is gentle as a lamb and LOVES to have company come for a visit. This is just what I want in my American Bulldogs !!! A gentle spirit, but definitely MALE !!! He is producing some amazingly large and beautifully colored puppies !! Please read through the testimonial pages to see pictures and descriptions of several Redmond offspring. GENTLE GIANTS, indeed.See Photo's →
GUS is our latest addition male stud. Gus is a son of Big Shoes x PromiseKeeper, born 11-30-14 and is a Certified Therapy Dog. My good friends, Oley and Dianne, outside of Kansas City, have generously volunteered to allow Gus to sire several litters for Secondwind Farm over the next 18-24 months. Gus will remain living with them outside KC, and I will be taking the girls to "visit"....We are THRILLED to introduce Gus and have Big Shoes' Champion bloodline lineage continue to grow and flourish in our pack!!! This is SUCH a tremendous blessing for Secondwind, for which we are eternally grateful!
Now at 2 years young, Gus is 138 pounds of lean muscle with a powerful stance. At the same time, his playful, energetic, and loving personality are soooo reminiscent of his daddy, Big Shoes! Another giant teddy bear! We are certainly looking forward with GREAT enthusiasm to having many beautiful litters from Gus with our gorgeous girls!See Photo's →
