Our Story

Past

Delicious Bull Terriers began with a young couple's insatiable love for each other and AKC Registered Bull Terriers.  Sam brought her experience in showing dogs in AKC conformation along with the animal husbandry skills handed down from generation to generation she learned growing up on her families' rural  dairy in Ontario, Oregon.  Kurtis brought discerning talent as a photographer for the United States Air Force Honor Guard. Accustomed to capturing everything from presidential events to international military outreach, he soon began shooting Sam at weekend dog shows lending to the birth of his private collections that grew into Down and Back Photography.  They married in 2010 and have since enjoyed having AKC Registered show dogs as a part of their lives.  Together, they attribute the success they've had with their dogs to God, hard work, superior bloodlines and their commitment to the future families the puppies they produce will become a part of.

Present

Though it is not common to see a couple with young children active in breeding and showing, the Brown's continue to be competitive with their dogs in the show ring even amongst the most seasoned breed veterans. They have both been dedicated members of the Bull Terrier Club of America for the past few years and are also members of the Golden Triangle Regional Bull Terrier Club. They cherish the Bull Terrier community and consider many of their Bull Terrier friends across the country more like close family. Currently, Kurtis and Samantha Brown live with their Bull Terriers and 2 children Kole and Margaret Brown in Fairlawn, Virginia USA. Living with, breeding and showing top quality Bull Terriers continues to be a primary focus in their personal lives and they wouldn't have it any other way!

Future

The future of Delicious is with the next generation of both humans and dogs.  Luckily, Kole at the age of 6 is already excited about getting in the ring with the dogs as a pee wee junior.  The Brown's consider themselves blessed to have had so much support during their journey and are always happy to pay it forward to other newcomers to the breed whenever possible. Please do not hesitate to contact us at thedeliciousbully@gmail.com if you have any questions, if we do not have the answer we probably know someone who does!  Goals for the future in the show ring include continuing to breeder-owner-handle dogs to their AKC titles and being an contributing force within the Bull Terrier Community.

....a Little More History

Though AKC show dogs have always been her primary passion, Samantha Brown (Monroe) spent her childhood under the careful mentorship of her mother, Shelli Monroe.  During this time she learned animal husbandry skills while raising and showing 4-H and FFA steer projects.  She also was an active part of working next to mom at "the dairy" which would eventually grow into Monroe Dairy LLC, as the 3rd generation in her family to care for a registered herd of dairy cattle.  During this time she learned invaluable lessons in selecting sires, line breeding, pedigree research, and conditioning of top quality show animals.  

"Through tough love and patience Mom taught me how to do things right, you only breed the best, feed the best and keep your animals in the very best condition.  It all had to be perfect and we didn't go in the house until it was....now I know why! Thanks Mom!"--Samantha J. Brown
