KENNEL INTERVIEW – BRUTE FORCE BULLIES, MCALLEN, TX
JORGE GUERRA – PRESIDENT, CEO
It has been well over a year since we last highlighted some of the big things happening over at Brute Force Bullies and quite a bit has happened with the McAllen, TX kennel.
The last time we featured Brute Force- Owner Jorge Guerra had just made some key acquisitions to solidify the future of his camp. For those who may have missed the article, here is a quick refresher: Jorge had just purchased a Dax daughter named Quad and a female by the name of Jezebel. Some may remember Jezebel appearing in some of our earlier issues as well a “Bully Queen” one of our female Mascots. We were proud to show off a female of her caliber, having her represent BULLY KING Magazine at Mascot.
BRUTE FORCE BULLIES 2021
Fast forward to today… Brute Force Bullies has transformed into a household name. Jorge put in the years and built it upon solid foundation. Brute Force Bullies didn’t cut corners either, they put in the work, dedicated the time and spared no expense. One impressive thing about Jorge is he did this while running another business. We’ve touched on the importance of a second income, especially when starting a kennel or deciding to become a breeder in previous articles, Jorge is a prime example of an entrepreneur that invested his earnings from one business into his vision, his goal of establishing a kennel and developing his own bloodline.
Brute Force Bullies has had several of the most exclusive breedings over the past couple years and are now reaping the reward.It wasn’t always easy and things didn’t always go according to plan. Jorge faced adversity like so many of us do at the beginning, yet he stayed focused, he kept on his grind and he never complained when things didn’t go his way. There’s a different level of respect that’s earned, especially from other breeders when another kennel builds from the ground up. In the era of social media and new breeders claiming to be the “best” a couple months into it with one or two purchased dogs, Brute Force Bullies did things the old school way.
ESTABLISHING A BLOODLINE
In addition to those accomplishments, Brute Force Bullies has established one of the most respected and most talked about new bloodlines, Quadline. Named to honor the Dax daughter at the center of it all, Ms. Quad. Quadline may be a newer bloodline, but the groundwork in establishing it began close to 5 years ago. Unlike the majority of bloodlines today, which typically revolve around a top producing stud, Quadline is built around a female, Dax daughter Quad of Brute Force.
We can’t discuss Quadline without first mentioning a little about the dog it was named after and who’s legacy will carry on, long after she’s gone. Quad is a Dax daughter who’s mother Ciroc is a daughter off of Magoo. Ciroc, if you’re not familiar, is widely considered one of Magoo’s best daughters.
Initially wanting a puppy off Ciroc of Bain Bully Kennels, Jorge couldn’t believe his luck when opportunity presented itself for him to get the best of both world’s in Quad- one of Dax’s top producing daughters. One that would eventually end up laying the foundation for Brute Force Bullies’ program. With the key addition of Quad, BFB would go on to produce several noteworthy dogs as she would be the catalyst in not only taking BFB to the next level, but also go on to establish her own bloodline. Aptly named “Quadline” in her honor.
“One of the things that we loved most about Quad initially, is that she looked just like a female Dax.” Not only was Quad very consistent in her productions. She threw her look, added bone, the signature Daxline neck and shoulders, thick rears, short backs, complete with flashy color in each of her litters. Jorge especially liked the chocolate and lilacs she produced in each of her litters.
Although the work in establishing Quadline dates back several years, it wasn’t until recently that Jorge decided to announce it as it’s own bloodline, created by Brute Force Bullies.

Quad had two boys with Hugo Boss, one was available for sale at the time of writing, but you’d have to contact BFB to inquire as to his availability now. The other male, a keeper, goes by the name El Chapo.

THE FIRST 2X QUAD LITTER
Brute Force Bullies has already begun the next phase of Quadline with the first ever 2X Quad breeding (Bam Bam X Choco) and Jorge is “absolutely thrilled” with the outcome thus far.
Quadline has several big plans in the works, one of which is the first ever 3X Quad breeding. In addition to this, BFB has several other 2X Quad breedings planned in the near future. BFB’s focus is on linebreeding Quad to keep the integrity and consistency of both Quad and her Sire, Dax by continually bringing them to the forefront of each litter’s pedigree.
Jorge sees some of Dax’s best features in Quad and by keeping her predominantly up front in the pedigree BFB aims to preserve some of Dax’s more sought after qualities. Keeping them up front, rather than further back in the pedigree to avoid watering down what each dog brings to the table.
An inbred GrCh Mr. Bean daughter. Jezebel was bred to Oro, and produced two females and male stayed with the camp. Taboo, Karma and Phat Boy.
Quad is currently waiting on Jezebel to come pick up her bad ass kids, but Jezebel is currently living her best life in …. with no plans on coming back to take care of them!
