Nestled in the heart of Lindale, Texas, Brittany Goodman's life revolves around her passion for gentle giants, the oversized, teddy bear-like dogs she adores. As the proud owner of Beast Texas Bullies, Brittany is determined to bring the world's attention to the loving and loyal nature of XL American Bullies, Frenchies, and Pocket Bullies.
Her journey with these magnificent breeds began back in May of 2022 when she discovered she was pregnant. During her pregnancy, Brittany found herself missing the day-to-day interaction with her XL Bullies, which led her to explore smaller breeds. Her decision to venture into this new territory proved to be worth it, as she now dedicates herself to breeding high-quality dogs with incredible temperaments.
At Beast Texas Bullies, the importance of genetic testing is paramount. Brittany ensures that all of her dogs undergo Embark testing, a crucial step to guarantee that the puppies they produce will be free from genetic defects and health issues. She believes that responsible breeding is about more than just producing stunning dogs; it's about ensuring their health and longevity as well.
Brittany doesn't stop there. She is committed to socializing her puppies from a young age, integrating them into her home life and exposing them to various experiences. Once fully vaccinated, these pups are introduced to house visitors, leashed, and taken on car rides and even to restaurants when weather permits. Her aim is to produce show-quality dogs that excel as companions while maintaining great manners in public settings.
In her breeding program, Brittany's favorite bloodlines are Juggernaut for XLs and Detox for Pocket Bullies. Her passion for these particular bloodlines stems from the extreme characteristics and unique traits they bring to her beloved breeds. However, her love for these dogs extends far beyond their physical appearance. She is determined to change the common misconception that bully breeds are aggressive, ensuring potential buyers and the public understand that these breeds are truly exceptional when it comes to companionship.
In terms of diet, Brittany's dogs thrive on a carefully planned combination of kibble, raw ground beef, eggs, sweet potatoes, apples, bananas, and carrots. She trusts Victor High Pro as her go-to dog food brand, feeding her adult dogs once a day with a one-day fast each week. This diet, combined with extensive show training and plenty of land for exercise, keeps her dogs in peak physical condition.
When it comes to purchasing a puppy from Beast Texas Bullies, Brittany takes every precaution to protect the well-being of her dogs. Prospective buyers are required to sign a detailed contract and take their new pup to a veterinarian within 72 hours of purchase for a check-up. Brittany's puppies are health guaranteed, and she welcomes them back with open arms if things don't work out in their new homes. However, refunds are only provided under specific circumstances and for good reasons.
Brittany and her partner, Cameron, work tirelessly to show their dogs in the ABKC, USBR, and XLBC circuits. They provide extensive training and maintain their dogs' fitness through rigorous exercise on their spacious property. They believe that the bully community can improve through increased education and unity, leading to a more responsible and ethical environment for these amazing breeds.
In her personal life, Brittany is a dedicated mother to her beautiful four-month-old daughter, Luxleigh, and a supportive partner to Cameron. When she's not tending to her family or her dogs, Brittany enjoys her full-time job as a plastic surgery nurse and partakes in weightlifting for exercise. She is grateful for publications like Bully Girl Magazine, which provide a platform for sharing her story and advocating for the bully community.
With her unwavering dedication to her dogs and the bully community, Brittany's future goals include achieving championship titles in the show ring and producing three quality litters ranging from XL, Frenchies, and Pockets. Her vision for the bully breed community in the next decade is one of unity, with less bickering and more education, leading to a better understanding and appreciation of these extraordinary dogs. She also hopes to see the XL class become more solid and aligned with the breed standard.
One of Brittany's inspirations in the bully world is Natalia Issa of House of Issa Bullies. She admires Natalia's professionalism, friendliness, and dedication to producing well-socialized, outstanding dogs that excel in the show ring. As a fellow woman making a name for herself in the bully game, Natalia's example drives Brittany to push her own boundaries and excel in her breeding program.
What sets Beast Texas Bullies apart from the competition is the family-oriented approach that Brittany and Cameron bring to their business. They understand that their responsibility as breeders extends beyond the initial sale of their puppies, and they remain available to their clients around the clock for support, guidance, and advice. Their commitment to ensuring the happiness and well-being of their dogs creates lifelong friendships with their clients.
In addition to her dedication to the bully community, Brittany enjoys other hobbies and interests. As a mother and partner, she cherishes spending quality time with her family and raising her daughter, Luxleigh. In her career as a plastic surgery nurse, Brittany finds fulfillment in helping others feel confident and beautiful. And when she can find the time, she delights in pushing herself physically through weightlifting and other fitness activities.
As an advocate for the bully breed, Brittany is not only committed to her own kennel's success but also to the broader community. She envisions a future in which bully breeds are universally understood and appreciated for their gentle and loving natures, and she works tirelessly to make that dream a reality. With her passion for her dogs and her steadfast dedication to responsible breeding, Brittany is undoubtedly a force to be reckoned with in the world of bully breeds.
