Our family is so grateful for Russ at Showtime Bullies! We were fortunate to give a forever home to one of his beautiful, blonde dogs. She is calm and very loving. She has seamlessly joined our other two dogs (ages 12 and 3) and has been amazing with our boys (ages 9 and 6). We named her Norah and within just a week, she learned her name and how to sit. She is also excellent at walking on a leash and at meeting new people and dogs. We highly recommend Showtime Bullies to anyone interested in this breed. Thank you, Russ!

This year has been full of blessings for my family as I welcome my third daughter and I bought my first home. I wanted to add a female puppy to the love and comfort of this home. I searched online and looked at many puppies until I came across the female puppy Russ had at Showtime Bullies! From the Parents of this beautiful puppy, right down to the puppy herself, i was absolutely taken. Their kind demeanor, and beauty were unmatched. I named this female puppy Kahlessi. Kahlessi is the strong name of a an amazing Queen, perfect name for my new addition! The best part of this whole deal is, I wanted to bring more love and protection into my home, and i did, but i got more! She is a member of the family!!! I am so happy with Kahlessi‘s affection, demeanor, and intelligence. My daughters absolutely love her and they all get along very well. She is a perfect match for our family! Kahlessi stops everyone in their tracks bc they want to pet her and admire her beauty. Thanks Russ!!!
Sincerely a happy Mamma,

I first off want to thank you for the work and love you have for your dogs. My boy Rambo has become a member of my family and I couldn’t imagine ever having a better dog. From before I even saw the puppy to even now when he’s over 8 months old ; you have been in contact with me and very supportive. Always following up and responsive to even the most minor questions that I may have. It’s great knowing that there are still good people out there that stand behind their work; even though Russ considers this his life and something he loves to do. It shows through the way he treats his dogs and puppies. Russ has invited me to to his home makes everyone that purchases a puppy from Showtime Bullies as they are now a part of his family. A genuine person to the core. My boy Rambo is growing up fast and turning heads everywhere we go; a handsome boy with a great temperament. It’s just the balance I was looking for when purchasing this breed. No medical issues and strong as an Ox. I have three young children and he plays with them with care and love. I would highly recommend Showtime Bullies to anyone interested in this breed. I’m blessed to have such an amazing breeder so close to home. I have found my dream dog and made a great new friend in this process. I couldn’t ask for more !
Thank you

Dear Russ,

We wanted to thank you so much for this precious little girl. She has warmed our hearts. We named her Nala. She makes us smile and laugh. Those little teeth love chewing the nylabone and her pink Kong. We appreciate your hard work and willingness to share your knowledge.

Always grateful,
Brad Woods and Family

I found Showtime Bullies online and got a puppy from Russ. From the first call they were very professional , knowledgeable and helpful and I am very grateful for that. Russ did exactly what he said he would do and answered all of the questions we had before, during and after we got the puppy. Our dog is healthy, full of energy and a smart amazing pup. I would definitely recommend Showtime Bullies and would absolutely get a dog from them again!!!  Thank you Russ!!!

Our experience with Russ and his staff at Showtime Bullies was exceptional! When we said we were in Texas and wanted a puppy, he made everything seamless. Video chat to show us the facilities and our puppy to be, then walked us through the process once we arrived. He has checked in with us since we’ve been back and has just made this the best experience we could ever hope for! From our first conversation to the video chat showing us the facilities before driving over from Texas, to his patience on our arrival after traffic and still giving us a tour and introducing us to all the beautiful dogs. Exceptional service. He really cares and takes great care of all his dogs!  Thank you Russ and Showtime Bullies!

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Russ and Showtime Bullies as a whole! From our initial conversation over the phone, to the day I picked up my new girl, everything was very professional and a very pleasant experience. He showed me around the entire facility, which is absolutely beautiful, and introduced me to all of his gorgeous dogs. When I got Nova home, he has kept in contact to check and see how she is doing, it truly shows how much he cares for every puppy and about their wellbeing. Any questions I had prior to purchasing Nova and even after, he has been very responsive and incredibly helpful. When I am in the market for another pup, I will definitely be going back to Russ and I would recommend him to everyone. Thank you for such an amazing dog and a great experience!

We recently picked up our new puppy from Showtime Bullies and we were blown away with our entire experience. When we arrived we were welcomed into a clean, very organized top notch facility. You can tell Russ loves and takes pride in all his dogs. Bringing home a new puppy can be a little nerve wracking but Russ answered every single question we had and took the time to truly make sure we were comfortable before we left, he also went above and beyond and coordinated getting our pups ears done before we took him home. We love our new addition to the family and can’t thank Showtime Bullies enough for making this a memorable experience!

As a former animal cruelty investigator and dog lover, I have visited many a kennel operation, but only one other has even come close to matching the cleanliness and organized operation of Showtime!

Russ Birch, the owner, is very knowledgeable of the breed and as a dog aficionado, I learned so much about the bully breed. I have owned Dobermans, Chows, Labradors and currently own a Bulldog and Rhodesian Ridgeback, but as a first time Bully owner, truly appreciated the additional insight into this awesome breed.

Russ’s dogs are the epitome of healthy, beautiful animals with great temperaments. I consider myself honored to now be the proud owner of a beautiful male from the Green Machine/Tandaw breeding! Yes, he’s going to be a “big” boy! Thank you, Russ!

Showtime Bullies is an organization based on integrity, and family, with a devotion to provide the utmost healthy and joyous dogs for their customers.

Mr. Birch (owner) provided excellent customer service and outstanding communication throughout the entire process. Being that Mr. Birch is a registered breeder, he was able to provide documents to prove authenticity for our puppy’s superior bloodline. He also introduced me to my puppies parents and provided me a tour of his facility.

All dogs under Mr. Birch’s care were extremely friendly and exceptionally healthy. I was able to bring my new puppy home after her last vet appointment. Even days after bringing her home Mr. Birch is still willing to answer the phone for me with any questions I may have had. The communication between breeder and new owner is immensely important being that brining a new puppy home has its challenges.

Showtime Bullies’ dedication to customer service, their dogs and uttermost professionalism separates them from any other dog breeder I have worked with before. I couldn’t recommend them enough and will surely be a returning consumer in the future.

After looking for over a week through different kennels and breeders online we found Showtime Bullies. I called to get some more information on a litter and after only a minute of speaking to Russ I knew this would be our breeder of choice. Russ was so kind and helpful he did an immediate video call for us so we can see all the pups. We put a deposit on a puppy that wouldn’t be ready for another 6 weeks and every week Russ sent us photos and videos updating us on our growing boy. We took the drive of 4 hours to go pick our puppy up when he was ready to come home and we were greeted by Russ and his daughter Sarah who made us feel very welcomed. Russ is BEYOND knowledgeable and professional and truly knows the bully breed inside and out. When we left we felt as if we can call Russ at anytime of day if we ever had a question or concern about our new family member. We’re very thankful we found Showtime Bullies and can’t wait to watch our new puppy grow!

Russ Birch of Showtime Bullies is one of the most dedicated, ethical, knowledgeable, and passionate breeders in the industry. His dogs exemplify the highest standards in the breed and possess the personalities that owners are seeking.

The facility is top of the line and set up with the needs of the dogs in mind. The clean kennels, large exercise pens, and plenty of daily attention foster the happiest and healthiest of dogs. You can see the pride Russ has in his facility and in his dogs anytime you visit the kennels.

I am thrilled we were able to bring our UKC Purple Ribbon bully, “Lord Henry” home, and recommend that others look no further than Showtime Bullies for their family addition.

Just a quick note to say thanks for everything. It was a pleasure to meet you and visit your kennel. Very impressed by Green Machine and the rest of the pack. Your obvious knowledge of dogs, along with clean, organized, professional facilities was a big part of our decision to buy from Showtime.

We love our puppy! She’s a sweetheart. I highly recommend Showtime to anyone looking for a quality bully.
