State your name, your kennel, and where your kennel is located.
My name is Cameron Wandall, and I own and operate Beast Texas Bullies located in Lindale, Texas.
What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
At Beast Texas Bullies, our focus is on XL American Bullies. I fell in love with the body structure of these dogs and the companionship they have to offer.
What is your favorite bloodline?
I can’t say I have one particular bloodline that I would call my favorite. Everyone is unique in their own way. The old school Kimbo and Mac10 definitely hold a spot in my heart.
In your opinion, what are the characteristics of a responsible dog breeder?
In my opinion, a responsible dog breeder will not breed for the dollar signs but to better the breed. They will strive to achieve the best possible breed standard.
What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
At Beast Texas Bullies we feed a 40/50/10 mixture: 40% is top grade kibble (Victor); 50% is raw (fajita trimmings, green tripe, chicken quarters, ground beef blend); and 10% is fruits(apples and bananas), vegetables (sweet potatoes, pumpkin, greens), and supplements (fish, oil,calcium).
How many times a day do you feed your dogs?
Our adult bullies will eat once in the morning and again in the evening while our puppies get fed three times a day.
How do you keep your dogs in shape throughout the year?
Here at Beast Texas Bullies we have 15 acres that allow our dogs to play and interact with each other. Whether it be chasing a tennis ball through the fields for cardio or holding a stack for show ring practice and stamina, we want our bullies to enjoy their exercise.
Walk us through the process of purchasing a pup from Beast Texas Bullies from start to finish.
The process to purchase a puppy from Beast Texas Bullies starts with a questionnaire to get a little bit of information on the purchaser. After that we run a background check and then send out a contract which includes the price agreed upon for the specific puppy and a deposit. The remaining balance is due seven days prior to the delivery of the puppy, and in that time delivery arrangements will be made.
Do you currently show any of your dogs?
Beast Texas Bullies currently has two of our studs that compete in the show ring. Champ, our lilac tri, is two majors and a few points away from being an ABKC Champion. We also have Chief who has recently made his debut in the show ring.
What advice does Beast Texas Bullies have for any upcoming breeders?
My advice to new and upcoming breeders would be to do your own research. It is crucial to put the time in to educate yourself on the breed, the class, genetics, politics, and so much more. Not everyone is in the game for the right reasons, but if you’re going to dive in, make the commitment to yourself and the game as a whole to better the breed, not just chase the money.
What do you think is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?
Personally speaking, the hardest thing to overcome has been loss. I lost my first bull due to an accident just days after his first breeding. Months later I lost my keeper (his son). Loss is never easy, it makes you want to quit and question why you even started, especially when these animals are more than animals to you, they’re family.
How do you think they can overcome this thing?
Perseverance is a term every bully breeder needs engraved in the front of their mind. Nobody said it would be easy, but it is worth it. Keep striving to be the best.
Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
I look up to XL Bully Breeder Konnor Hitchcock of Tyler, Texas. He is my go-to guy for every question I have.
Tell us about one of Beast Texas Bullies main goals for 2022.
My goal for 2022 is to produce the most structurally correct, genetically clean, well tempered XL bullies. I would also love to see Champion become an ABKC Champion this upcoming year.
Describe how you would want things, in the bully breed Community, to be 10 years from now.
I would like to see people be more encouraging and supportive so that corrective criticism is well received. There’s people out there that throw shade on others without even trying to calmly present their advice or ideas to truly better the game.
What separates Beast Texas Bullies from the competition?
My kennel is my family. These dogs are more than just the beast protecting my yard. They’re more than the dollar signs they may potentially bring.
What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
Outside of breeding, I am a full-time roofer specializing in commercial and residential roofing. I also enjoy spending my free time with the girl of my dreams, the mom of my pack, Brittany.
What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
I love Bully Girl Magazine and am very thankful for the opportunity to be able to talk about my bullies and program. It’s a solid platform to get to know more about the breed and breeders in the bully community.
