Wonderful Experience

The hardest part of finding an English Bulldog is finding the right breeder. I feel so fortunate that all my research paid off and I found Bovens English Bulldogs. It was a wonderful experience and I was blown away at the amazing care our puppy received. She is super healthy and the sweetest. So grateful to Shilow.

Having St. John of Missouri is totally an enjoyable experience each day.

Thanks to the loving care of Shiloh and the Bovens for the expert care for these exceptional dogs!!!! We couldn't have better care in every way with the prenatal, birth care, the momma, the after birth care, & especially the love of the first few weeks care. These dogs are certainly raised and loved like the kings and queens they are!Our bulldog couldn't be smarter or better well behaved since we brought him home.Thank you to Shiloh &Troy.

Words can’t even begin to describe how grateful we are for the Boven’s. I don’t know how we got so lucky to find them after a simple search on the internet. From the moment I inquired about their English bulldogs they were quick to respond and let us meet their bulldogs in person. We fell in love with the dogs and knew instantly Shilow and Troy were the only breeder we wanted to use. They answered every single question we had and gave us so much important information about the breed and their breeding process. From that first meeting, Shilow and I were in contact very often for the 5 months before our baby was born and she kept me informed and updated every step of the way.

Once our litter was born, Shilow sent pictures and videos EVERY SINGLE DAY of the babies. I have not heard of any other breeders that do this. She truly loved those babies as if they were her own and I felt like my baby (named Bunker) was in the best hands possible and was given the absolute best start to life. Shilow and I became friends and I felt like I could trust her and lean on her with any questions/concerns I had for taking our puppy home. She raises her own dogs and the puppies in the most beautiful puppy wonderland within her own home.

On take home day, Shilow was thorough and gave us everything we needed for success. The Boven’s became friends throughout the process and I am so incredibly thankful for her. Bunker is a healthy, happy, perfect boy and we could not love him any more than we do. We feel so blessed!

We had an awesome experience getting our adorable Rolo from the Boven family! Shilow kept us up to date on how everything was going during the Momma’s pregnancy and with the new born puppies. She sent daily updates and pictures to keep us informed and also sent numerous adorable videos too! She is extremely organized and takes amazing care of all of her dogs and puppies. The effort she makes to take such good care of the puppies, is top notch! We receive compliments on our puppy all the time and asked where we got him. Our vet was super impressed with his health. Shilow is also so friendly and knowledgeable. She has answered many questions for us about the breed and continues to give us helpful tips and advice. I would absolutely recommend, going to the Boven family if you are considering getting an English Bulldog. They are an exceptional breeder and family. Thanks again for everything!

Boven’s English Bulldogs is exceptional. We were on the waitlist for an extended amount of time but it was absolutely worth it! Shilow is extremely detailed and thorough with her updates during every stage of the puppy process. From pre/post pregnancy vet check ups, to the daily photos and videos, we were throughly in the loop during the entire experience. We had never previously owned an English bulldog, but Shilow was so helpful in educating us using her extensive knowledge base regarding bulldog diets, supplements, vet questions, and direct links for preparatory bulldog puppy supplies. We FaceTimed the puppies during the selection process and received daily photos once the puppies were born. Shilow was so patient as we waffled between the numerous cute puppies to allow us to take the time in choosing the right puppy for our family and lifestyle. Shilow and Troy are personable, passionate and truly love each and every bulldog in their litters. This is evident as the puppies receive excellent care from birth. My husband and I drove from Texas to pick up our puppy and Shilow and Troy were so kind and accommodating by cutting off 2 hours round trip of the drive. When we met them, they spent over an hour getting to know us and educating our new family on everything about our puppy we needed to know. They also gave us a “welcome bag” with all the supplies we needed to get us back home on a 13 hour drive. We truly feel we are a part of their family for life and we know we have a warm, reliable, indefinite resource to lean on! They are the best English bulldog breeder in the country and I would recommend them to anyone! Not to mention our puppy, Snacks, is one good looking little guy who is often deemed “the cutest bulldog puppy” people have ever seen. We can’t thank them enough! 5 Stars!Kelsey Vangeison

Recently our family was lucky enough to adopt one of Boven’s famous fur balls. We absolutely couldn’t be happier with him, he is so cute, cuddly, affectionate, you name it, he is all of those and so much more! While we were waiting Shiloh would send photos and videos daily of how the pups were coming along. Shiloh is always available to answer any questions or concerns that we had, she’s very knowledgeable about the breed and brings each litter up with top notch care and love. You should see what I call the Maternity Ward for the pups it’s nothing short of phenomenal. As with most things I suggest you talk to a few breeders before making your choice because after talking to the others you’ll know in your heart that Shiloh is the right person to adopt your pup from hands down!! It’s almost not fair to call Shiloh a breeder because she’s so much more than that, and she raises these pups because she loves them, not because she wants to sell them. The Bovens are wonderful people that we are proud to now call our friends, and really couldn’t see getting a pup from anyone else.  –  The Russell Family

Don’t know how I was so fortunate but when I was searching for an English bulldog puppy I stumbled on Boven’s website. I sent an email saying I was interested and was called that night. I could tell this was a breeder who was highly dedicated to her ensuring her puppies go to good homes. We received updates from insemination and then when the puppies were born, almost daily pictures or videos which made us bond with our puppy before we ever saw him. My dad and I looked forward to those pictures every day and were over the moon to see how he would grow, play and discover new things. We now have the sweetest dog ever, Moosie, and I have no doubt his wonderful demeanor is because of the love and attention he received from Shilow and her family, and of course his mama. Moosie loves children and is so sweet with them. Shilow is fantastic and offered so much support and advice, even after I picked up Moosie, I can’t say enough good things about her. Moosie is such a hit with my family, they even say they would want a dog from this breeder! Fantastic lady and breeder…thank you so much! – Warm regards! Tina

We are so blessed to have our baby boy Rolo. Shilow and Troy were so great to work with and we always had great communication with them. They answered any questions we had which made the whole experience better. They care so much about there dogs and it shows in the way our Rolo was cared for and loved until he was ready to come home with us. Our experience was so good. I would highly recommend getting a puppy from them. He turns heads everywhere we go and we just adore him. Thank you so much Shilow and Troy

The Boven’s will be the only family I recommend getting an English bulldog puppy from . They take very good care of their bullies and they are absolutely adorable. Will definitely get another from them.

Great people to get your bully from.

Sent daily or every other day updates and/or photos until puppy was old enough to leave.

Very good at any any follow up questions you may have. They cover everything very through.

Best thing is we’ve got a great puppy.

I would like to give a big THANK YOU to Shilow and Troy Boven. They have given me a very special bully and wingman, who is the finest bred dog i have ever seen. He is not only beautiful but genetically gifted, and extremely affectionate. I have witnessed firsthand the research and preparation they have put in their special diet for their female, and once born, the special around the clock care and dedication. I named my pup Tater, because he looks like a giant sack of potatoes with all his rolls. Bulldogs go through a long health check, and Tater has received 100% perfect from 2 vets, which is rare. Shilow and Troy do not run a puppy mill. They breed bullies purely for their love of their dogs, and make sure their pups find a special home, so they can be treated well, and the pups can bring much joy to their families. If Shilow and Troy were a big business, and rated by Standard and Poor’s they would receive an A+.

I came to Boven’s English Bulldogs as a brokenhearted bulldog mom. I had just lost my 3yr. old bulldog to incompetence at a 24hr emergency clinic. I was in such despair. I truly wasn’t looking purposely for a new baby….that all changed the moment I saw pictures of Rufflebutt’s beautiful babies. I messaged Shilow and poured my heart out, we immediately bonded. She has been the most gracious lady in my life lately. She was available 24/7 for me, helping to soothe my spirit and calm my fears. There has not been one single thing I have asked for that she would not go above and beyond for me. I am forever indebted to her for this beautiful healthy baby that they promised and delivered and approved wholeheartedly by my veterinarian. I am now the proud mom of Bodacious Beauregard. ” Beau” has brought so much love and laughter into our hearts and home. Thank you Rufflebutt, Shilow, Troy of Boven’s English Bulldogs.
