Did You Buy a Puppy from Bulldog Ravine?

From the Humane Society of the United States...

Lisa Mullins didn’t know she was purchasing a sick puppy when she bought her bulldog, Otis, from Bulldog Ravine. The Internet seller had a flashy website depicting cute, healthy puppies, concealing the true nature of its business.

It wasn’t until after Otis became seriously ill that Lisa realized she’d been had: he came from a puppy importer who has reportedly sold unhealthy bulldogs from overseas puppy mills. Sadly, Otis died at only 8 months of age.

Like many Internet sellers, Bulldog Ravine owner Brenda Moncrieff may have operated under more than one business name using more than one website to market English and French bulldog puppies. These alternative business names and websites may include: B&E English Bulldogs, Heavenly French Bulldogs,, and

If you have purchased a sick dog from any of these businesses, or any other such business or Internet site that markets French or English bulldogs, or if you otherwise have had a negative experience with any of these businesses, please contact us immediately. If you have friends, neighbors, or family members who have experience with any of these businesses or sites, we would also like to hear their stories. Please share this email with them and ask them to contact us if they are willing to share their stories.

Unethical puppy sellers like Bulldog Ravine typically promise purchasers that they only sell healthy dogs who have been raised in a home, but often these people are in the business of selling unhealthy puppies from miserable puppy mills. They also may promise pedigree papers that they cannot deliver. WBRE Eyewitness News' reports about these practices and Bulldog Ravine are available in part one and part two of a series on their website.

If you believe that you have been victimized by puppy mill pushers, please tell us your story.

Thank you for your continued support in our campaign to stop puppy mills.
