In the beginning.......... after having English Bulldogs for several years and being astonished by their awesome character and even "human like" nature, we decided to raise them. Following a world of study on the breed and care for them, it was time to find a pair of excellent quality females. No stone was left unturned in the quest to find the best English Bulldog breeder . The journey ended at Big Mac Bulldogs owned by Mike and Arlette Kottke. There was no question about their knowledge and effort set forth to create the best bulldogs possible! As a true blessing, they had two female puppies(Brooke & Charlott) with an endless amount of champions in their pedigree.
As time went on......Now it was time to find them a mate. Little did we know that living an hour away was a couple with a champion stud that had recently won "Best of Breed" over the top English Bulldog in the nation! It didn't take long to realize that Gary and Janis Redman have a special expertise and dedication when it comes to this breed. Jaws were dropping when we laid eyes on their prize bully! His name...... Winterbull's Rio Lobo. He is truly the cornerstone of our breeding program and now.... "The Life and Times of Winterbull's Rio Lobo" as told by Gary Redman .......
Janis and I first saw Lobo when he was about 12 weeks old. A friend of ours, Mike DeWinter brought his litter of pups to a St. Paul- Minneapolis Bulldog Club meeting. He had bred his female to our dog Redmana's Ole Five and Dimer (J.J.). Well, our eyes went right for the short backed white pup and it was love at first sight. He was just a great, plump, good-looking bulldog pup. He was somewhat laid back in personality and seemed very lovable. Janis and I had seen enough puppies over time and we knew this bulldog had great potential. Mike and I agreed to co-own Lobo, and it wasn't long before we had him in our home in Spooner, WI. We decided to show him at 6 months old at the St. Paul-Minneapolis Bulldog Club Specialty Show, where he took Winners Dog his first time in the ring! This was his first Major, and then his next time in the ring a month later he repeated his winning ways with his 2nd Major at the Des Moines Iowa Bulldog Specialty Show. He was great fun to show - A short-backed stocky 55 lb. standard bulldog. All I had to do was pick him up and put him under one arm and go. He finished his championship with limited showing. We didn't show him much. We had another dog that we had to show in the classes at the time. I did special him at the following years St. Paul-Minneapolis Bulldog Specialty Show in Lake Elmo, MN - where some of the top dogs in the nation competed. The nation's top dog was there - CH Beauties Amos, Badger was there, a Lobo son who was fresh off a great weekend in Wisconsin where he won his majors and 2 Best of Breeds against the nation's top bulldogs. The judge at Lake Elmo was Ruby Grogg. I thought she would like Lobo. I've seen her judge before and had seen her dogs in the past. Well, Lobo won Best of Breed that day! It was the highlight of his career and his retirement came soon after. He became my buddy at home, my constant companion and friend. He loved going to the Dairy Queen, riding in the car, and following me everywhere I went. He was the kind of dog everyone dreams of, and we were lucky enough to share his life. Lobo produced several litters of nice puppies during his stud career. He lived to be 12 years old, and we miss him dearly, but as most Bulldoggers, we have another bully now, thanks to breeder Dr. Denny Toskas, his name is Rio, and yes Lobo is his grandfather!

In conclusion, this was the foundation of Wrinkle Ridge Bulldogs. As you have read, the bar was set extremely high when it comes to quality and we strive to keep it there.
