State your name, your kennel, and where your kennel is located.
My name is Bethany Pucciarello, of Infinite Bullies. You can find us in Corpus Christi, Texas.
What type of dogs do you breed, and what inspired you to get involved with that particular breed?
We breed Exotic Bullies. My first bully Maximus, made me fall in love with the breed, and I've been passionate about bullies since.
What is Infinite Bullies favorite bloodline?
I'm still experiencing mixing different bloodlines, and finding out what I like. However, Paintball has been a key factor in my best productions.
In your opinion, what are the characteristics of a responsible dog breeder?
Knowing that when you are producing, you are always looking to better the breed, is the first priority. Responsible breeders understand that you should put your dogs first, as you do/would your children.
Their needs come first. You get what you give, and the more you put into making sure your animals are healthy and well cared for, the more successful you will be.
What type of diet do you keep your dogs on throughout the year?
My dogs are on a consistent diet routine, which only changes as their needs change. (for example: growing pups, or changes in body style as they mature). My dogs are all on different varieties of Sportsmix. I would love to incorporate raw, but I am educating myself on what's best before I start.
How many times a day do you feed your dogs?
Our dogs get fed twice a day.
How do you keep your dogs in shape throughout the year?
Walks when possible, but mainly lots of backyard play with different activities. They all love to play/destroy balls!
Walk us through the process of purchasing a pup from Infinite Bullies from start to finish.
- Interest starts early on when the litter drops.
- I then send constant pictures and health updates, and I answer any questions to the best of my ability.
- When someone purchases a pup, they leave with a care package that consists of shot records, a week of food, puppy pads, and I try to add a little collar or accessory!
- The most important thing that I have learned is afterwards, I always keep myself open to questions, and share as much knowledge as possible. I have repeat customers, and have created life-long friends, by offering good service and reliability after the purchase is complete.
Do you currently show any of your dogs?
I take my males to shows. My dog Logic does really well. I look forward to becoming more educated in the show world with my future productions. Shows are a beautiful experience, and I love networking and getting to meet fellow breeders in person.
What advice does Infinite Bullies have for any upcoming breeders?
Listen to your dogs, and your needs. Be financially prepared to spend a lot and make very little. Especially at first. Stay humble and appreciate every minute of it. Success will come as long as you stay level headed and consistent.
Always put your dog's health before anything else. Lastly, always try to correct flaws when looking for a suitable stud for your female.
What do you think is the most difficult thing for people in the bully game to overcome?
Competition and losses. It would help so much if everyone would realize there is enough money and support to go around. Everyone's puppies will sell in the end, and there's no reason to talk down on anyone else.
It's hard to stay positive when the support is lacking. I have personally experienced very hard losses in my own kennel. The loss of a dog or pups could make the best breeders want to quit.
How do you think they can overcome this thing?
Stay humble and stay positive. Always support the next person, and realize there's always something you can do better. There's always room for improvement. Educate yourself, and research constantly.
When experiencing a loss, keep going. Whether it's your best dogbor a keeper pup, the rest of your kennel still deserves the best, so you must keep pushing. Don't stop.
Who do you look up to in the bully game, and why?
Of course big breeders, they're incredible and the ultimate goal is to achieve what they have. But more personally, the amazing men at Crooked City Bullys, Outclass Bullies, and Mob Boss Kennels have supported me as a female breeder. They have kept me strong through losses and supported me through success.
Tell us about one of your main goals for the year 2021.
I want to be recognized and respected as a breeder. I have worked very hard to prove myself and I refuse to stop. In 2021, I want to improve my female line up, and incorporate big names directly into my kennel. I want to build my brand and create a name for myself.
Describe how you would want things, in the bully breed Community, to be 10 years from now.
The needs and wants of the buyers will change. There's no way to know what will be in demand. I would love to see the Bully community show more support for their fellow breeders, and that the Bully Breed remains a breed of its own.
What separates Infinite Bullies from the competition?
I don't see myself in competition with anyone. There will always be someone producing better and more valuable dogs than I am. I will always strive to reach and surpass expectations.
I am humble enough to realize I have a lot more to learn to ever reach the magnitude of someone competing. I would rather see my fellow breeders succeed and rise up with support than to compete.
What other hobbies or interests do you take part in?
I have worked in the plant and landscaping industry for 11 years, and now work for a wholesale grower. Landscape designing is a passion of mine. I am heavily involved as a single mom in my children's lives and education. I also love sports, and I read as much as possible.
What do you think of Bully Girl Magazine?
I think Bully Girl is a beautifully done brand that supports everyone. I took interest as soon as I read more into it, and searched through the BGM Instagram. The wide spectrum of respect that BGM offers to women, men and the breed has me in awe.
I feel super blessed to be a part of your brand. This is a hard world to be in, but Team Bully Girl makes me feel more supported as a strong female breeder. Plus, the apparel is amazing!
