FUNKY MEDINA’S PISTOL

The story of how GR CH PISTOL came about is as exciting as the dog was himself. Louis Hernandez bred NIGHT CAP, a double-bred daughter of GR CH ANDY CAPP, to MURPHY, a son of Jose’s GR CH BULL, to create this amazing animal. 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...

SOUTHERNMEN’S GR CH FOX ROM

Bred by D.T. from “GR. CH. POGI” and “TUKTOK”, a Nigerino-Red Devil, “GR. CH. FOX” began his “career” as a “pet” bull. Bogie & Jack acquired him and Gurgulio from Dan. They gave Fox to Albert who although a fancier, did not have the time to put a dog in shape. So Fox, formerly called “MAX”, was brought up to be a guard dog although he did not have any...

SOUTHERNMEN’S CH BAMA

Ch. Bama has very controversial beginnings. Passed of as a litter out of Wildside’s “HELLRAISER” by some unscrupulous peddlers (you know who you are boys!), Bogie trustingly bought this dog despite rumors about its real breeding. He successfully campaigned Bama at 14 months of age against D.T.’s “MIRIAM” out of Wildside’s (Arce’s) “DR. DEATH” x Wildside’s “BLACK CHERRY”. This win made Bama the first Philippine female winner, despite two weeks of...

K’CLUBS MAMBA

K’CLUBS MAMBA Mamba  was one of those dogs that you just had to like. This is a dog that ended his own line, due to being such a great animal. Mamba was a beautiful pitch-black dog that could have been called Midnight. He had a very happy go lucky disposition and wasn’t man aggressive, except when he neared the end of his keep. Never knew his litter-mates, except one bitch called Charleen, she...
