“BlueHaven French Bulldogs” is operated by a mother/daughter team, along with our spouses, Bick and Brent, who all have a great love for the French Bulldog. Lacey is a stay-at-home mom of five (ages 5 to 17) and Donna is a stay-at-home grandmother, who, along with spouses and children/grandchildren, devote endless time and attention to our wonderful Frenchies. It is truly a family affair.
Our families have always had dogs for the love, entertainment, and companionship that they provide – Labs, Golden Retrievers, English and Irish Setters, Cocker Spaniels, Yorkies, Shih Tzus, Maltese, Poodles, Beagles, Dachshunds, and others – and we have loved them all, but when we were introduced to the French Bulldog we knew that this would be the last breed of dog we would ever own.
We maintain a fairly small family hobby breeding operation in order to insure that each of our Frenchies get all of the love and attention he or she deserves. They are truly our canine children. All of our Frenchies are well socialized from birth by the kids and their friends, not to mention us and the guys. They get to spend a lot of time exploring one of our back yards with their buddies (both human and canine), as well as spending a lot of the time indoors at our feet, in our laps, in our beds, or in their kennels. Our puppies are raised inside our homes from day one until the time they leave to go to their new families. To put it plainly, they get all the socialization they can handle and get a little spoiled in the process:-).
We breed for quality – not quantity. Our goal is to improve the breed by only mating dogs that are in high conformance with the breed standard in conformation, health, and temperament. Occasionally, we will breed one of our females to an exceptional male that we do not own, but most of our puppies come from carefully selected parings of our own Frenchies.
We can’t decide which color of French Bulldog we like the best, since we love them all: the brindles, the fawns, the sables, the creams, the various blues, and the chocolates, along with pieds in each of these colors; and we love the extremely rare and beautiful pure blacks, pure blues, pure chocolates, black & tans, blue & tans, chocolate & tans, and lilacs. Because we do, and because others apparently do as well, we breed for a wide variety of French Bulldog colors and color patterns. We have observed that color and color pattern is strictly an individual preference. Whatever your particular preference, we will eventually have a puppy to match your desires.
