A breed of American Bully XL settled in Prayssas. Residents and the mayor believe that it disturbs the neighborhood. The breeder explains.

Since July 2021, the Monstrous Bully Kingdom, a French breeder of the American Bully XL, a breed of dogs as robust as they are affectionate, has settled in the territory of the municipality of Prayssas, precisely in a place called “Cornier”. The residents consider themselves victims of unrest in the neighborhood. They have the support of the mayor. The breeder confides that “his dream has turned into a nightmare”.
“There was no permission to build the kennel and put at least twenty dogs in the building”, assures Jean-Pierre Seube, the president of Riverains in Massedalen. For this association, the breeder has “failed in relation to the town planning department of the Association of Municipalities”. She adds: “It appears that this operator also does not have the necessary approvals to run a breeding operation with more than nine dogs. Apparently the alert veterinary service (DSV) has carried out a check, but we do not yet know the outcome of this visit .A complaint has been filed with the gendarmerie for several months. However, the file does not seem to have developed much. While waiting for the administrative bureaucracy to change this file, it is the local residents who are suffering day, night and day the genes of this wild breeding”.
Residents very close to the farm wanted to give their testimony: “The noise of the barking, incessant during the day and night, is a source of nuisance that affects rest and nervous balance”.

“There will be no electricity and drinking water connection”

Philippe Bousquiet, the mayor of Prayssas, understands “the position of local residents who suffer from the noise and odor nuisance of this wild breeding”. He says: “I have been dealing with this file since July 2021 and I met the project manager at that time and asked him to send me a description, plans, a soil survey and of course to fill out a request to the town planning department. To date, I still haven’t received anything and he has been doing and building as he wanted without permission from the competent services. I alerted the various government services, a complaint was made to the gendarmerie as well as a report to the DSV. I am still waiting for the reports and the legal actions to follow.I confirmed to this gentleman that he will not have any electricity and drinking water connection in the current situation.I hope that this file will soon find a favorable outcome for the quality of life of the affected residents and that the law will be respected”.

“I lost €40,000”

Alexis Marin believes he is within his rights today. He hopes to have water and electricity soon. He currently uses a generator and brings water daily to his dogs, who, he says, “are like my children”. He admits to having had 20 dogs, but that is no longer the case. He only has nine left. “A dog is worth between 3,000 and 10,000 euros. I had to give some”. He estimates that he lost 40,000 euros.
On this farmland that he bought, he states that “nothing is built in hard”. “The structure is removable. Everything is removable. It’s like having a garden shed at home”. He says he is ready to discuss with the mayor. He also invited him to visit his farm.
Originally from Layrac, Alexis Marin works with American Bully XL. Muscular, this dog is not categorized. He does not have a reputation for being aggressive. On the contrary. It is suitable for a family. “It is, above all, a dog that does not bark,” emphasizes the breeder. I am there all day, there is no barking. If, on the other hand, a fox walks around the farm, it will be spotted”. He would like to point out that the neighbours’ dog barks in return. He is ready to bring a bailiff to the place to have it recorded.
He notes that three of these immediate neighbors have dogs “bought from breeders.” “Main growers, 20 km from home, it’s good but 100 m…”. Finally, he reminds us that there is a deer farm directly opposite, and that the deer’s plate does not go unnoticed. “No complaints about it”.
