At the moment we don't have any Aylestone pups available. However we do have two litters of our new breed – Rockhill Imperial – ready to go now.
More information and pictures of our puppies can be found on the Rockhill Imperial website so please do check it out.
Grab a cup of tea, make yourself comfortable. Let's begin...
It was a balmy summer's day. The birds were singing, the bees were buzzing, Jenny was piroutting through the kitchen (latest poetry in hand) and Jim was being grumpy in the shed (again). The web server in the bottom shed - fortunately not flooded today - was humming away powered by the team of hamsters we'd recently invested in. All was well at Aylestone Bulldog.
Suddenly, from out of the blue skies, came hurtling a clammy comet made entirely of discarded hair-balls (unlikely, we know). It roared through the air, a noisome flame puttering behind it, and smashed soggily into the bottom shed!
"Egads!" exclaimed Jim. "My homebrew was fermenting in there! Where will I gain sustenance from now??" [It should be noted here that the comet did no harm to Jim's homebrew – the hamsters had already made merry with it & made their escape some hours earlier (fortunately for them).]
"Jenny!" Jim shouted mightily. "Jenny!!"
"Yes dear? What's the matter?" came the dulcet response.
"A cromulent comet hath knackered my brew! And incidentally has knocked the website offline, lucky we have a backup eh?"
"Yes dear. Perhaps we should give James, the Webmaster, a ring?"
"Indeed my love. You do that whilst I fetch some more beer, we are fresh out."
ring ring… ring ring… "Hello?"
"Hello dear. Dire news. An unexpected cat-hair comet has knocked the Aylestone Bulldog website offline and, more importantly, has destroyed Jim's brew! Can you fix it?"
"By the Beard of Zeus! Is bargain booze still open? I'm afaid that's his only hope… I'll check the website backup now." tappity tap tap tap… "Erm, the backup webserver appears to be… a bit broken…"
"Well, I was a bit concerned when you said it was in Wales."
"You can't say that! This is on the internet you know. Besides, the Welsh are a fine, proud people."
"Yes dear. The Welsh may be on the internet but we, however, are not. What did you say was wrong with the backup webserver?"
"Well… it has sort-of backed up the website… but, unfortunately, I appear to have neglected to backup the database. So we've got a bunch of useless files and whatnot but no actual backup. If you know what I'm saying."
"Yes dear. So we have the file structure, basic textual content and the images that our members have uploaded. But no actual data and hence no way to match the images up with members or any of the content I had written on the site. So what you're saying is that we have no way of putting the website back online?"
"Have no fear! I have returned with plentiful beer! So, when's my website back up then?"
So, that was several months ago.
And all that wasn't strictly true (well, the bit about forgetting to backup the database is true). So, while we're working on building a full site – with members, forums, photo galleries and all that – we've decided to put up a small site so you can all still get in touch with us & know we're still around.
We'll also be placing updates about new puppies for sale up here as well, we;ll also let you know via facebook
Thanks for coming back, and thanks for your loyalty & patience while we fix everything back up. let's hope it won't be long!
We're really chuffed that you've come back to check us out!

Aylestone Bulldog.com is brought to you by these fine people:
Jim Clarke loves Bulldogs. But he's never been happy with the bad health, the short lifespan or the breathing problems (amongst many other things).
So, he decided to try and "breed back" to the original Bulldog, before the shortness & scrunchyness came about.
After a lot of hard work, he met with some success and decided to call his new breed Aylestone Bulldogs in honour of the place they were bred.
Turns out, lots of people feel the same way as Jim. Aylestone Bulldogs are now spread all over the country and are cherished companions to many happy people & families.
