Of Merit Akitas (6 of which are still in the ACA top 10 sires and dams), and countless international Chs. from a breeding program never exceeding 12 dogs.  An award-winning Bengal cat breeder, pre-AKC Akita fancier and founder of the Miniature Bull Terrier Club Of America, BJ is known for exploring and promoting new breeds but has been exclusively devoted to the Toy Fox Terrier since 2001.
