Thank you for coming into our corner. We are from Galicia (España) in the province of A Coruña.
We live on the atlantic coast of the Ría de Muros-Noia, a cozy place where we breed our bulldogs.
This website is possible by the arrival in our life of our first bulldog " Braña" (Tuffnuts de Anniversary),
Never imagine how special it could become live this lovely breed that would produce no change in our lives
Braña arrived from England in 1998.
The name "Braña" is galician, meaning "land or wet meadow" common in the english countryside, where she arrived.
By that time acquired land on which we built our home, cassually cally "Prairie of Garepa",
which determined the name of our afix for breed "BRAÑA DA GAREPA".
Braña adapt perfectly to life by sharing with us: work, outings and trips, shopping, visiting friends and
family, and of course being the host home more grateful and happy to receive those who came home.
For Braña started reading about the breed, their qualities, needs and strengths, its flaws and problems of breed. Gradually we have been opening up to a world completely unknown to us, we became increasingly attractive and has gone arousing our interest in knowing more this ancient breed.
This interest has led to the raising
totally different from any other breed, at first with little information but
with a willingness to learn and the need to be improving day by day to do with
seriousness and responsability in this task. Permanently investigate the
ancestors of our dogs, see where your genetic, descovering defects and qualities,
constantly seek more information, all essential to take into account when making
Always trying to do what we consider most appropriate and learn from mistakes to improve day by day. We sincerely thank our two good friends Susan and Nena, for bringing us to Braña from England with the hassle and work brings an dog imported from UK.
And thanks to all those who believed in Braña and gave her love, making it possible to initiate us in raising this breed for us more and more special
