About us In 2007, my husband and I purchased a property with the dream of owning and operating a successful pet resort / dog training facility.  At that time, the property was known as RicAli Kennels.  The owner offered to include his dogs in the purchase of the property which we declined as we were not interested in breeding.  Richard, the owner of RicAli Kennels, was terminally ill.  He held onto one dog who was his pride, joy and best friend.  After Richard passed, Alicia asked us if we would consider adopting Maximus.  This dog was obvious dignified power with a regal presence about him that commanded respect.  I was hesitant but being involved in rescue for over 25 years, I kept an open mind.  After three days of visiting Maximus, I held my breath and opened the door to his kennel run.  I was greeted with hugs and kisses by a  powerful muscular dog yet gentle in his offers of affection.  The bond was immediate and Maximus became a part of our family that day.  Every day with him was amazing.  His loyalties were unquestioned and he knew we adored him. My husband and I researched the breed with an intrigued fever.  We soon discovered the man we met was well respected and infamous for the dogs he produced in the bulldog world.  He dedicated much of his life to the betterment of the breed, and many, to this day still talk about the RicAli bulldogs. Our time with Maximus was short. We lost him eight months later. Our hearts were broken and the property felt empty.  We adored Maximus in such a way that we both agreed we wanted a dog from Maximus’ progeny.  We wanted a red male with a black mask.  That male is Crush who was born a little over a year since Maximus passed.  He is everything we have hoped for and we found ourselves consumed by love for this breed.  Today we have several who are cherished family members that accompany us to our pet resort every day. Our passion has inspired us to become breeders in hopes that we can continue to emulate the best representation of the breed.  We chose the name Living a Legacy Bulldogges in honor of Rich Martin and the dogs he produced such as Maximus who left an impression in our hearts that changed us forever. Over the years, our experience in the breed has been an amazing journey that we are blessed to continue to experience.  The only way to prove a high quality breeding dog is through health testing while investing time in training, testing potential and performing.  We are committed to the breed, our dogs as well as our puppy homes. We hope you enjoy our website and find it educational.  If you have any questions or would like to know more, please feel free to contact us.     Jason and Marian Knott
