    In August of 2019 my wife and I purchased a bulldog puppy from Michel Troyer. The puppy was 16 weeks old at the time. My wife inspected the puppy when she went to get him and found him as advertised. He was healthy nutritionally sound and well socialized. In the 9 months we have had the dog he has been a true delight. Our vet found no faults with the dog either when he went for his routine check. We wanted a well bred dog for companionship and have had bulldogs since 1971 and are familiar with the breed and their problems. The dog we purchased is now 1 year old and brings my wife and joy playing with him daily and remains without maladies. We do recommend the Troyer kennels.
