Welcome To Castlewood English Bulldog Breeders In Missouri


Update March 2024……...At Castlewood Bulldogs, our commitment to the health and quality of our beloved bulldogs is paramount. After careful consideration, we have decided not to plan any bulldog puppy litters for the remainder of 2024. This decision allows us to focus on maintaining the highest standards of care and well-being for our bulldogs.

While we understand this news may be disappointing for those looking forward to adding a Castlewood bulldog to their family this year, we assure you that this decision is made with the best interests of our bulldogs and their future families in mind. We invite you to check back with us in 2025 for updates on our breeding plans and the reopening of our waiting list.

In the meantime, we encourage potential bulldog owners to explore our website and familiarize themselves with the adoption process, including the necessary steps to become a qualified bulldog home and what makes a suitable home for our bulldogs. You can learn more about this on our Adoption Process and Pricing page. Please note that all bulldog puppies are placed in pet homes only (no breeding rights) under spay/neuter agreements.

For those interested in making an older bulldog part of their family, we occasionally have retired adult bulldogs available for adoption. These adoptions offer a unique opportunity to share your life with a bulldog, and we are dedicated to finding the perfect match for each retired companion.

We welcome your inquiries and are more than happy to provide further information via email at Your support and understanding mean the world to us, and we look forward to the possibility of connecting you with a Castlewood bulldog in the future.

With appreciation,
Ronny and Dawn Castillo

About Us:

We are Ronny & Dawn Castillo. Located in Southern Missouri, about a half hour from the Arkansas border, we live in a log home situated in the middle of 20 secluded, wooded acres. Our journey in bulldogs began back in 1994. Ronny and I were married that year and were very young (I was only 18). I have always been a dog lover but up until that point my experience with dogs had mainly involved toy breeds. However, growing up Ronny had always wanted an English Bulldog, so shortly after we were married we made our first “adult” purchase and brought home our very first English Bulldog, Johnny. Granted we were young and dumb and didn’t do the research we should have……But oh how we fell in love with the breed! Johnny passed away at the age of 11 but long before then I knew we would never be without a bulldog. A few years before Johnny died I began researching the breed more thoroughly and had decided to pursue my passion for breeding and showing. So, in 2005 I joined the Bulldog Club of America, acquired my first champion bulldog, Ch. Easy Ed’s Chazzmo, and began showing. I was hooked! The following year I produced my first litter bred by the champion, Ch. Castlewood’s Harmony In Motion aka “Miss Viola”. To date, we have now owned and/or bred 6 champion bulldogs and have produced several others that are major pointed.

Our Bulldog Breeding Program

I am a bit of a perfectionist by nature and this has carried over into my devotion and passion for bulldogs. When we decided to venture into the breeding and showing aspect of bulldogs I wasn’t going to be satisfied with “mediocre” breed quality…….This includes health, temperament and conformation. Thus, I set out to find and bring into our program the very best bulldogs from around the world. I attended the Bulldog Nationals and watched with keen interest all of the top bulldogs in the US compete for the Best of Breed title. However, I didn’t see any single bulldog that “checked” all the boxes for me. Shortly thereafter there was a post and discussion in one of the bulldog forums I was a member of regarding a particular European bulldog (Ch. Valleybull Silver Sailor at Merriveen). He was one of the most beautiful bulldogs I had ever laid eyes on! So, I started researching and studying the European bloodlines and fell in love with many of their dogs. What I noticed was that while the US bloodlines seem to have better top lines and shorter backs, the European bloodlines tend to have better heads, tails and more bone and substance. By incorporating both the US and European bloodlines into our breeding program, I am aiming to get the best from both worlds. I am very proud of our most recent addition, coming all the way from Spain, Ch. Valley Bulls Burton. Burton finished his championship here in the US very quickly and is one of those few dogs that “checks” all the boxes for me.
