State your name, your kennel, and where your kennel is located.
Our names are Kris Rosas, Joe Martinez, Mario Corral and Genaro Medrano. Our kennel is Dallas Elite Bullyz located in Dallas, Texas.
What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
We breed Pocket American Bullys. The breed has always been a part of the culture. We started with pitbulls and then saw Lucky Lou and knew we had to change our game plan.
What is your favorite bloodline?
That’s a tough one because there are a lot of nice bloodlines, but Lucky Lou and Magoo inspired us a lot and now we are incorporating Rocko line.
In your opinion, what are the characteristics of a responsible dog breeder?
Characteristics of a responsible dog breeder in my opinion would be cleanliness, vet visits and going the extra mile for the dog, time, and dedication.
What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
Some of us feed raw and kibble and some of us just feed kibble. We have a couple of dogs that eat a certain food because of allergies.
Are there any specific brands of dog food that you recommend?
Valu-Pak is our main source of kibble.
How many times a day do you feed your dogs?
We usually feed our dogs one hefty meal per day.
How do you keep your dogs in shape throughout the year?
Most of the dogs get exercise with each other out back, and we also go for daily walks.
Walk us through the process of purchasing a pup from Dallas Elite Bullyz from start to finish.
- It all starts with a conversation with a customer that is interested in a breeding or pup. We are very easy going when doing business.
- We then show videos, pictures, or even meet in person to show and discuss a contract agreement, price on dog, deposits and any other info that a customer may want to know.
- When it comes to time of pickup, the pup will have shots and deworming done. Also ear crop if wanted by the customer.
- All in all we try our best to satisfy each customer.
Do you currently show any of your dogs?
Absolutely, we travel state to state to show our productions. So far this year we have champed out a couple of dogs.
What advice does Dallas Elite Bullyz have for any upcoming breeders?
Do your research!! Learn the breed and the standard of the dog you are pursuing.
What do you think is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?
The mindset of trying to get rich quickly. Don’t fall into the social media hype, stay away from drama and be able to take constructive criticism.
How do you think they can overcome this thing?
By being open minded and staying drama free. Good business goes a long way.
Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
We find inspiration amongst ourselves and other breeders like the Ferraros who have created a solidified bloodline with Lucky Lou. They are just great people with plenty of advice to give, as well as Khan for the way he runs his business and how he is very business oriented. And of course the line he has created with Rocko, amongst many other reputable breeders that have been doing it for years before us.

Describe how you would want things, in the bully breed Community, to be 10 years from now.
Hopefully everybody is held accountable to breed more towards the standard of the American Bully.
What separates Dallas Elite Bullyz from the competition?
There is no competition because we breed for us and focus on our vision.
What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
This is our hobby, we all have day jobs and families that we tend to. This is our passion that we put all of our extra time into.
What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
Crazy that you ask that because when we started back in 2018 we were heavy on YouTube and I commented on one of your videos “Hope we can be in Bully Girl Magazine one day.” And here we are today!
