Welcome to True North, home of the first Leavitt Bulldogs in Minnesota.

I , like so many others, am in love with the bully breeds and had always dreamt of having an English bulldog of my own.  As I got more serious about making that dream a reality, I started to do a lot of research.  Out of all of the various types of bulldogs that I came across, the Leavitt breed satisfied everything that I was looking for: a beautiful dog with a sound skeletal structure, no respiratory concerns, longer lifespan, willing and able to do whatever you ask of them, and an excellent family companion.

David Leavitt has produced the Leavitt Bulldog (formerly known as the Olde English Bulldogge). They are stunning and well proportioned with great athleticism. They are eager to please and have a fantastic temperament which makes this breed a wonderful addition to any family. They are gentle and tolerant of children of all ages. The Leavitt Bulldog is extremely intelligent, quick to learn and very alert.

All of our dogs are raised on a balanced raw diet and are given only the best in holistic health care.  They are members of our family and always in our home with us.  The dogs in our breeding program are all registered with the LBA.  We breed only Old English Bulldogs from the Leavitt bloodlines and they are bred for good health and a sound temperament. They must be health screened with genetic testing and hip and elbow x-rayed before being approved for breeding.

We also firmly believe that the first 12 weeks of a puppies life are the most crucial in setting in place a firm foundation from which they can grow to their full potential. Because of this, we implement the Puppy Culture program with each and every one of our litters. For a more in depth look into this program and methods that we use to raise our beloved dogs and their pups, please refer to our “Training Tools” page.

We at True North are so passionate about this breed and it is an honor be part of growing and bettering Leavitts so that more and more people can experience what it’s like to have such an amazing companion.
