WILLIAM JOSEPH LIGHTNER

WILLIAM JOSEPH LIGHTNER

WILLIAM JOSEPH LIGHTNER William Joseph Lightner was born in Baltimore, Mary­land in 1877. His grandfa­ther started fighting dogs about 1850 and developed a game strain, never sold a dog.

KINFOLK’S CH MAMA

MAMA was whelped from a breeding of Kinfolk’s CH Sig & Kinfolk and Blackrain’s Taz. CH Sig was basically a Eli/Snooty/Bolio bred dog coming from T.

HAVANA BOYS JUMPING JACK FLASH

I received Jumping Jack Flash at the age of eight weeks old. I bought him along with 17 other dogs off of the Latin Boys. When I went to pick up the dogs, I saw Jumping Jack in a small rabbit cage all by himself. Of course that was not his name yet, but it was soon to be. He got his name, because he would not stop jumping around...

FUNKY MEDINA’S PISTOL

Bean Town Kennels acquired the dog as a young pup, and for reasons unknown to myself, they gave GR CH PISTOL to F.M.K. at the tender...

URBAN WARDOG’S RECCA

CH. Urban Wardog Kennel’s RECCA was bred by JA himself. He was sired by Arce’s TROUBLE, a direct son of Garner’s FRISCO ROM, and his dam was Arce’s ANNIE, who was a tight GRCH Coy’s BANJO ROM bitch. EO of UWK purchased the dog directly from JA as an eleven-month old pup and waited till the dog was fifteen months before his first bump against a much larger and older...

ZINETTI’S BLOODY MARY

In the early Fall of 1997 I bred my CH AZRA R.O.M. to Bijeljina Boys’ CH BELI, who was part of one of the greatest litters ever born here. He was a littermate brother to Bijeljina Boys’ GR CH CRNOOKI 5W, CH BELA 3W, SARENKO 2W and SIVI 1D R.O.M. AZRA was also part of another real successful litters born here. Unfortunately, the breed­ing was unsuccessful so I called Bijeljina...
