Garrett Ridley has been involved in the American Bulldog (AB) breed since 1997. Garrett got his first AB, Hannah, who was out of Martin’s Chesty Puller II & Martin’s Cinderella Story bred by John Martin. 

Garrett knew he would always love and own an American bulldog. Thirteen years later Garrett still owns and loves the American bulldog breed more than ever. Now Meet The Pups!

Cyrus was pick male out of the first breeding of Boyd/ Dailey Hobo x Shasta. Cyrus was born February 2004.We knew he was going to be a great dog on the ride home.

  • NWDA – BST1 (breed standard test) title
  • SDA – FO (family obedience)
  • SDA – P1 (protection 1)
  • AKC – CGC (canine good citizen certificate)
  • PENN HIP – Left .38 Right .41 (No DJD)

Cyrus is a very intelligent American Bulldog. He learns very fast and easy to train. Cyrus earned his Canine Good Citizen certificate at 7 months of age at the 2004 ABA nationals. At the same show he demonstrated amazing prey drive and won 1st place in the driviest pup competition.

Cyrus has proven himself to be a wonderful home guardian and sport protection dog. Cyrus has a wonderful ability to turn on and off. He can be in drive on protection training field one moment and the next moment be out of drive and social with people, children and other dogs. We consider this to be one of the best attributes to his temperament. Cyrus weighs in at just about 100 lbs. He is a very large standard type bulldog. His frame is one of huge bone and very thick muscle. Cyrus has amazing prey drive and is fast and agile. Cyrus runs agility courses at our facility and has been clocked with a radar gun in a sprint race at 26 MPH!

Ellie Mae is also a pick female from WRAB. She was born October 2004. Ellie is out of Hard Hitting High Flying Rocket Man (aka Iggy) X Wild Rivers Siskyou.


  • NWDA – WTE (breed standard test) title
  • AKC – CGC (canine good citizen certificate)
  • OFA – Fair
  • PENN HIP – Left .50 Right .41 (No DJD)
  • NCL – Tested Clear

Ellie Mae is our foundation Dame. Ellie’s temperament is very solid. She is a loving female but also very protective. She has wonderful prey drive that comes from her pedigree. Ellis is also very social with other dogs but can show a lot of dominance. We feel Ellie is the perfect foundation Dame!

Ellie had her first litter June 2007. She showed us that she was a natural mother. Ellie proved that she would through wonderful puppies. She threw very correct confirmation & loads of drive. Her daughter Honda has received her NKC championship in confirmation in 3 shows and by 3 years old. We also had puppies that have taken Best Puppy in Show as well as placed in the driviest puppy contest. Ellie’s conformation is small compact and super muscular. Ellie has a very muscular rear end with wonderful angulation. She is very dense with good sized bone (which does not affect her movement in any way). Her head is very pretty, large and blocky with tight lips, nice almond shaped eyes with a good pronounced stop. Her coat is nice, short & tight.

Ridley K-9 Academy is still in the process of building a tight sound line. Our goal is to produce an American Bulldog that is genetically healthy, physically and temperamentally sound with amazing structure that follows form and function. We only breed our dogs if we are in a position to keep or co-own the best puppy for our personal needs. Thus making every litter top quality!

We are looking to produce hard working AB’s that can excel in dog sports (i.e. PSA & Schutzhund) & confirmation ring. Are you looking for a well bred pet, companion or guardian? If you are looking for a quality bred working, show or pet American Bulldog (AB), look no further!

At Ridley K-9 Academy every American Bulldog we own is our personal pet and companion. Every litter is raised with in our home with an abundance of love & affection. Because we know our puppies best, we feel it is our job as professionals to select and place each puppy with the proper owner / household.
