Jarrogue is located in Cypress, California, which is about twenty-five miles southeast of Los Angeles. Yes, its quite a trek from many of our Bull Terrier friends, but we can always be reached by email at: JarrogueBT. We like keeping in touch with all of you. Hope to hear from you soon.

I have been involved with breeding and exhibiting Bull Terriers for nearly twenty five years. My Bull Terriers are not only quality show dogs, but are my best friends and my pets. You will always find Bullies living in the house and one or two holding the bed down.

Bull Terrier "Moms" and "Dads" are health tested prior to breeding, which includes a BAER Test for hearing, UPC Ratio for kidney function, auscultation for heart murmurs or defects and are also checked for luxating patella. Resulting puppies are "house raised". By the time they are ready to go to their new homes, they have been checked for parasites and treated if necessary, BAER tested and their inoculations are current.

Having said all that, I must add that I do not breed more than one litter a year, if that at this time. However, I am happy to refer qualified puppy buyers to reputable breeders in their respective area. Or if interested in an older dog or rescue bullie, we will be able to refer you to an available dog or
rescue bullie in your area.

Breed rescue has been an important part of my life in Bull Terriers. I have been involved with rescue at the local and national level for 17 years. Being an integral part of the committee that organized and structured the Rescue Support Committee for the Bull Terrier Club of America, I remain an active committee member and newly appointed Fundraising Chairman. Please visit the new Rescue Support Committee web site at: http://www.thebullterrier.com/btcarescuesupport/ . Many thanks to Amber Lowe for the long hours she has put in on this project.

Another concept that has been of major interest since its mention a few years ago, is a "meeting place", so to speak, for the world's Bull Terrier Clubs. This being David Merriam's brainchild, he presented the idea to the world's BT Clubs at the BTCA's Centennial Celebration in New Jersey a few years ago. David asked for volunteers to develop his proposal and there appeared to be good interest at that time. The idea was publicized and a few meetings were attempted, only to fall short of the intended goals.

Still believing this to be an important venture in this new millennium, I stayed in contact with many of its supporters and have been assured that support for the idea still remains strong.

In an attempt to accomplish David's original goals, I have put together a web site, The World Bull Terrier Forum, which is currently being hosted by me on Jarrogue's Bull Terriers. To reach the Forum, click on the link provided.

I hope you will agree that this is a worthy effort for everyone involved in the world of Bull Terriers.
