It's not often one of our puppies flys home.
The reason being is we are unable to ship our puppies sight unseen via ground or puppy nanny.
We don't make the rules.
That's the guidelines set forth by the USDA if you own more than 4 intact female animals.
A buyer has to come to us for pick up in person and then can fly their puppy home in cabin.
Well this was definitely a first.
One of Phoenix's Frenchton pups, Johnny Depp, got to fly home in style on a private jet.
As he should with a nickname like that. :)
Enjoy your new life in Minnesota Bogey!
For years I've tried to keep back a Yeti son back to take over Yeti's reins someday.
It never works out.
I've tried plenty of times.
So I started keeping back Yeti daughters - Grace (Phoenix's Frenchton), Bindi, and Stevie.
I hope to maybe keep another Yeti daughter or 2 or granddaughter before Yeti officially retires.
Yeti will be 7 on June 29th.
After getting hooked on the Johnny Depp trial and naming the Frenchton litter after it, I decided I needed my own Johnny Depp in my program.
When I saw this little guy get posted on June 1st (the same day the jury announced the verdict), I figure it was meant to be.
He comes from the same breeder we got VooDoo, but different bloodlines.
I prefer to add proven adult studs into my program - Yeti and VooDoo were both proven adult studs. It's just easier that way as you know exactly how they matured and can see their offspring. I sure hope this little dude grows up to be everything I envision him to be.
Justice for Johnny Litter
Were you there?
Grace (Phoenix's Frenchton) welcomed 8 puppies on April 28th, 2022.
These puppies are 25% French Bulldog and 75% Boston Terrier.
Named after the Johnny Depp trial we have:

As breeders, we make the difficult decision to rehome our retired adult dogs.
We'd love to keep them forever, but it is truly in the best interest of our dogs to go on to equally loving homes so they can be the center of attention with a new person or family. Our dogs are our family first and foremost in our breeding programs and we want nothing less than that for their next chapter. We understand how challenging a puppy can be and that is why it can be the most perfect situation for a family to take an already housebroken adult dog. There is of course an adjustment period for them to become bonded to their routine. Patience and understanding is key.
Currently we have made the decision with 2 of our dogs.
Molly and Hedwig.
Molly is a lovable French Bulldog from our Phoenix's Frenchton line and Hedwig is a sweet Boston girl from the MZBT program.
I am extremely selective in finding the absolute best homes for our retired family members.
If interested in either of these girls, please send me a message or refer to the "Retired" tab for more info.
Molly will be placed first.
4/3 Update: Thank you Kayla and Family for welcoming Molly into your home.
She will reside on an acreage north of Sioux Falls.
4/9 Update: Thank you Beej, Liz and Finch (Boston Terrier) for welcoming Hedwig into your family.
She will reside in Minnesota.
Got home and Amazon was just leaving.
Odd, as I haven't ordered anything.
Found a box addressed to Tammy and Yeti...
I just knew who sent it when I opened it.
Thanks Brittny and Yeti's grandsons, Eli and Calvin for thinking of him. And to Howard for letting Yeti join the one-eyed Boston club.
We are post op day 4 now and he's doing so good.
He's up and down the stairs, off and on the couch, chair, bed, and outside bench.
This doesn't phase him one bit.
VIEWER DISRECTION ADVISED!
Yeti's Enucleation Post Op Day 1
He HATES the cone, this is going to be an interesting 2 weeks.
I asked if this could have been due to glaucoma.
This is what the Vet said:
"Suspect stromal abscess or corneal injury that lead to uveitis (low intraocular pressure and inflammation to the eye).
Uveitis can lead to glaucoma, but he did not have glaucoma yet. Eye looked as though it had perforated by the time we went to surgery."
The good news is they had an ophthalmologist in their pocket to consult with too.
This was absolutely the right call to make.
Yeti had to have surgery today to remove an eye.
I had taken him to my Vet on Thursday.
But unfortunately it continue to get worse over the weekend.
I took him to another vet today and I decided it would be best to have it removed, it did not appear it could be salvaged.
I've had a lot of people reaching out to me a bit concerned that I'm getting out of Bostons considering I added the Frenchie girls to the mix.
It was just time to retire my adult Boston lassies and I've been on the lookout for new bloodlines.
I'll be adding 2 new dilute Boston girls in February.
We could still have Boston puppies from Bindi or Stevie this year, so stay tuned!
My guess spring/summer if meant to be.
A dream come true.
Echo in pj’s with a huge family Christmas gathering!
The BEST families always find me and I couldn’t be happier for her.
Thanks Angela and Casey.
You truly are the best.
This girl was a tough one for me but it would be incredibly selfish for me to keep them all.
I really enjoy raising puppies.
My retired dogs truly deserve the next chapter in their lives with an equally wonderful family.
It appears I've been bitten by the bulldog bug.
I've been watching Cricket while my Mom tends to her Toy Aussie puppies.
Cricket worked me over with her with her bulldog charm.
I decided to add a couple of girls to Phoenix's Frenchton program.
Meet Edna and Blueberry Dozer Girl
Edna is a half sister to Cricket & Macie.
Blueberry comes from my good friend Kassity in Mitchell, SD.
I'm thrilled to have one of her babies as my own as she kicks off the new direction of her breeding program!
Two new members were added to Phoenix's Frenchton family, French Bulldog sisters,
Cricket and Macie.
They will allow us the possibility to produce 50/50 Frenchtons again in the future.
When Molly retired, it was kind of heartbreaking. The 50/50 blend came to an abrupt stop.
I can't explain what these Frenchton puppies mean to their people.
They are so in love with them.
Cricket has been staying with me for the meantime while my Mom tends to her Toy Aussies.
This little bulldog has worked her bulldog magic on me.
Now I will be doing something I said I wouldn't do.
I will be adding a Frenchie of my own for the Frenchton program.
Edna May will be joining my crew in December around Christmas.
Honestly, I can't wait.
Since it’s been about a year, and I don’t utilize Facebook for reviews, I thought I’d post my Google Business profile.
Please leave us a review if you are so inclined about your experience with MZ Bostons, good or bad, what you liked or maybe didn’t like that I could do differently or better.
If there’s things I can change, I’d love to know!
