VENOMLINE NEWS — MARCH 2022 UPDATE
Welcome to our monthly newsletter where we cover the latest news from Venomline Pocket Bullies. We’ll bring our readers up to speed on some of our most recent Pocket American Bully littqers, Available Studs, American Bully Puppies for Sale & Upcoming Breedings.
It’s been a busy month for all of us here at Venomline, but this week was absolutely insane. We completed several of our biggest breedings, and shipped out the most Studs in a single week than we’ve ever done. In total, we got out 28 fresh/frozen collections for Customers.
Let’s start off with our youngest Stud King Koopa & the newest addition to the Camp — Abkc Champion Homicide.
For those that have been following us for any length of time now — probably remember Venomline’s Rampage
THE DEVASTATING LOSS
Around 2 years ago we lost a Venom son as the result of a severe allergic reaction on the trip down to Florida with one of our partners Victor and his family. It happened at the worst possible time — as they were over an hour and a half from the closest Vet. They were on the way down with Rampage to meet us for a Barcroft Documentary Featuring Venom, Rampage & King V. What had initially began as an exciting trip down to visit quickly turned into a devastating accident.
Venomline’s Rampage was a rising star in the bully world, having already made a name for himself as one of top up and coming studs, but more importantly he was a beloved family member. It was a devastating loss, not only for our program, but for the Limas family and ours. After this happened, we decided to repeat Venom X Moana, the 1st 2X Venom breeding so that Vic and his family could have a piece of their son back.
From the Repeat of Venom X Moana — the breeding responsible for Rampage, Ch Lil’ Ting, Savage, and several other greats — comes Venomline’s King Koopa. Rampage returns — with the same head, bone and mass — on a shorter & more compact Venom sized frame.
Venomline’s King Koopa
This is the most impressive 14 month old American Bully I’ve ever seen, and between traveling the the and Internationally visiting several of the top American Bully Kennels & Breeders during my time with BULLY KING Magazine & breeding for close to a decade — I’ve seen a lot of dogs.
At 14 months old I’ll stack King Koopa up with any big name Stud anywhere in the world and can say confidence that he’ll not only hold his own, he’ll smash most of them. And he’s still technically a puppy. It might sound crazy, trust me it feels even crazier to write.. but it’s the truth. Ask anyone who’s seen this boy in person and see if they don’t tell you the exact same thing.

VENOMLINE'S KING KOOPA
In addition to King Koopa, Ch Homicide another Extreme Build Pocket Bully Stud joined Venomline a few months back.
When it comes to Extreme pockets — King Koopa & Ch Homicide the newest addition to our lineup of Extreme Pocket American Bully Studs — are in a league of their own.

VENOM & KING V KIDS COME TO VISIT
It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, we’ve been working around the clock non-stop to bring our customers our best lineup of breedings yet!

KILO COMES TO FLORIDA TO VISIT DAD VENOM
Bucks County Bullies brought their Venom daughter Kilo down to South Florida to visit her dad and to complete her breeding. Venom X Kilo — a 2X Venom breeding went down yesterday at our Vet via surgical insemination.
We’re absolutely thrilled for this one! Now that we’ve completed the breeding we just wait and hope for good news when we go in to confirm pregnancy in 30 days.
VENOM DAUGHTER CALAMITY JANE COMES TO VISIT
On Sunday, our friends Lizz & Wade of Rigg Tuff Bullies traveled down with their Venom daughter Calamity Jane. Calamity is one impressive specimen — and a great example of how a pocket bully female should look — short, compact, bully, functional and correct.
After a quick photoshoot, it was time for her breeding with Champion Homicide.
VENOM PUPS SHOW UP UNANNOUNCED & DEMANDING CHILD SUPPORT
Venom had some unexpected visitors show up at his door over the weekend and demanding child support. Under normal circumstances he would have answered the door in full disguise, but at first glance he just saw some cute puppies.
It wasn’t until he noticed the champagne male pictured below that he realized that there was no denying this puppy. The little fella looked exactly like him!
CHUNK SUPPORTS ALL HIS CHILDREN, JUST NOT FINANCIALLY
Venom “Chunk” immediately went into full panic mode, removed all of his jewelry, then asked me to stash his wallet, iphone, airpods and Audemars watch. He then proceeded to give these poor little pups his sad story on how he’d love to help but unfortunately he has no money, he lost it all on a riverboat gambling trip. But he went on to tell them that you can’t put a price on his “love” and he was willing to give them that at least. As long as it’s from a distance of course.
After finances were discussed and all liability removed, the crew broke bread, played outside and took photos together. The kids had a great time with dad and left feeling like they had really bonded with their old man — up until they received Venmo requests for their share of the food.

AMERICAN BULLY STUD SERVICE
Most breeders offer a stud service. If you are new to breeding dogs, especially within the American Bully breed, you should definitely take advantage of this.

ADVANTAGES TO USING A STUD DOG
Many that get started in the dog breeding business usually purchase a stud dog or two along with some female dogs. As discussed in American Bully Breeding 101, the better way of going about this is to start off by purchasing female dogs. When your female reaches breeding age you can contact the kennels that offer stud service or the kennel that you purchased your female puppy from to use their Studs.
Housing, feeding, and taking care of stud dogs is expensive and you’re not always guaranteed to have a great stud dog once they mature.
DECIDING ON AMERICAN BULLY STUD
Top Stud Louis V Line’s Omega
GETTING DETAILED PEDIGREE INFORMATION
Choosing a Stud is a big decision and one that can set up your kennel for success. Be sure to get detailed pedigree information on the dogs to ensure that you are getting a quality linebred dog (meaning the same ancestors appear more than once in the 4 generation pedigree)
Linebred and inbred Studs produce more consistent litters than scatterbred Studs. Successful breeders that have been around for a while and have quality productions — usually linebreed. All of the Studs at Venomline are linebred or inbred for consistency, are health tested, DNA-Profiled and carry every color and all tri color variations.
Bottom line — they’re bred to produce.But don’t take our word for it — always check a Stud’s Productions.
If you have not read Becoming An American Bully Breeder: Part I & Part II, we suggest first reading those before returning back to this article.
We have included links to each below:

AMERICAN BULLY BREEDING PART II: PURCHASING FOUNDATION DOGS
LINEBRED/INBRED VS SCATTERBRED
As mentioned above — linebred and inbred Studs have a higher likelihood of passing on traits to their offspring. By using a linebred or inbred Stud over a scatterbred one — the results become apparent in the quality and consistency of a litter.
It’s not difficult to figure out why — basic genetics & simple math: a dog that carries more copies of the desired genes — will have a higher likelihood of passing on them on to their offspring.
NOT ALL LINEBRED/INBRED DOGS MAKE GREAT STUD DOGS
Venomline’s Savage — 2X Venom
Now this doesn’t mean that all inbred and linebred dogs make great Sires. There are plenty of disasters of linebred/inbred Studs all over the place.
A quick scroll through any of the bully groups on Facebook and you’ll find there’s no shortage of examples. Take a look at any of the exotic bully groups if you really want to see some mistakes.
It’s important to understand that inbreeding and linebreeding are tools used to set traits. But, like the benefits, there’s also downside to closely related breedings. Inbreeding can be a double edged sword that can cause a lot of issues if done irresponsibly.
These types of breedings should only be carried out by experienced breeders that have a full understanding of the risks involved.
To avoid the COI (Coefficient of Inbreeding) from getting too high, an outcross os recommended immediately following an inbreeding.
INBREEDING & LINEBREEDING
ABKC Champion Venomline’s Lil’ Ting (2X Venom)
The word inbreeding carries with it a negative connotation by those unfamiliar with dog breeding, but the best examples of nearly every recognized breed since man domesticated the dog — have been the direct result of careful selection, linebreeding and inbreeding.
Again, inbreeding is done to set traits. But be aware that this doesn’t mean you’re just doubling up on the good, You’re also doubling up on the bad — this includes negative recessive traits and/or genetic disease. Ones that you may not have been aware even existed.
SHOW DOGS VS BROOD STOCK
Venomline’s King V (Venom son + 2X Casablanca)
Another common mistake that’s often made is assuming that just because a dog is a show dog, a Champion or just a good looking dog — that this automatically makes them a suitable Stud.
Just because a dog carries “type” or is proven in the Show ring — this includes Champion & Grand Champions — does not automatically mean that they will be great Stud dogs.
COMMON MISTAKES TO AVOID
Avoid common mistakes that can be costly when starting out — by going with a reliable breeder. There are plenty of Stud owners that will be happy to take you money — but not all of them will deliver. This is especially true when importing semen Internationally.
INTERNATIONAL STUD SERVICE — IMPORTING AMERICAN BULLY STUDS FROM OVERSEAS
Stud owners who aren’t experienced Shipping Internationally — aren’t always familiar with the testing requirements to import. Each country has different import requirements and testing that’s required that has to be completed (often within a specific timeframe). If the required tests aren’t completed within this set time frame — or if the breeding units aren’t prepared, packaged or labeled correctly — the shipment can end up getting held up in customs with some not even making it into the country.
It happens more than you’d expect.
So while some of the breeders may not have bad intentions — many will end up not being able to get shipments into the Customer’s country — and providing the services that they were paid for. Others are outright scams. Just be very careful when looking to import an American Bully Stud from the U.S. and choose to work with a reputable breeder.
IMPORTING VENOMLINE STUDS
When it comes to American Bully Stud Service, we ship Worldwide. For those interested in importing one of our Studs — the best way to reach Venomline is by text at 832.452.0898.
We no longer check WhatsApp due to the sheer volume of messages becoming impossible to keep up with. We are familiar and experienced with Shipping Internationally and have shipped all over the World.
EACH COUNTRY HAS DIFFERENT IMPORT REQUIREMENTS
Over the next month or so we will be adding each Country’s import requirements to our site to make things much more simple for those outside the United States to reserve our Studs while getting a better understanding of their Country’s unique requirements. We will cover the entire process from start to finish as well as the cost of shipping you can expect to pay to import Venomline Studs into your particular country.
If you ever wonder how some kennels seem to always produce top quality dogs and consistent litters, while others can take a great dog from a great line and run it to shit in just a few short years, the answer is usually pretty simple. 99% of breeders (especially in the American Bully breed) don’t do any research, have no understanding of basic genetics, couldn’t name a single breeding technique and have no breeding plan. Their gameplan: breed two dogs that “look cool” together.
Most have not put in the work to hone their craft. Yet they will be surprised and upset when they don’t end up with your results.
You can pass up the competition in just a few short years by dedicating the time and energy to study up on those who have had success and by applying those techniques to your breeding plan.
You don’t have to be a rocket scientist either. I’m not. Far from it. But you have a small supercomputer with unlimited information in your pocket. Quit being lazy and Google some shit. Respectfully, of course.
