About us
Chris & Bernadette Mellor

As a young boy Chris fell in love with Bodger, the Bull Terrier in the film the incredible journey, he vowed that one day he would have one of his own.  After years of trying to persuade Bernadette to get a Bull Terrier she finally gave in for the sake of peace (or so she thought!)...

Barney, joined the family in 1988 and quickly wormed his way into Bernadette's affections - he was a charmer and she was a push over! Suddenly, the shrieks of  'get that dog off the chair!'  and  'look what he's done to the carpet!'  became  'come and sit with me'  and  'oh dear have we had an accident? never mind'.

Betty (Ramen Rebekka at Credetta) joined the family a month later, as a companion for Barney, both were puppies with only 3 weeks age difference!  What can we say - we survived - just! 

It did  not take us long to realise what a very special dog Betty would prove to be.  She is the foundation of our success in Bull Terriers.  She first entered the show ring as a puppy and did quite a bit of winning which encouraged us to carry on. 

This led to us breeding our first litter and we were blessed with some beautiful dogs, one of which was Credetta Devil in Disguise (Bullseye).  He was owned by Martin Sowerby and handled by Chris.  Bullseye took over where his mother left off and was very successful as a show dog gaining his Junior Warrant at 14 months of age.  He also went on to produce some excellent puppies. 

It was now time for a second litter; a litter of five, the last of whom needed reviving and it was touch and go.  But as usual  Bernadette would not give up.  A good job she didn't - this tiny puppy came to be our first Champion: Ch Credetta Take It Easy (Daisy).  Owned by Alan and Ann Coultas, she was handled by Chris.

Since then we have had many adventures with showing, producing litters and eagerly watching our puppies progress.

The family is growing and the story continues......
