CUNE’S IRON KID

In the late 1980’s a dogman called Cune, from Serbia, imported a dog sired by Van Herpen’s Ace and out of Garlaunis’ Susy from Holland. His registered name was Garlaunis’ Rambo, but he was generally known as Iron Kid.

SCOTSMAN’S CH MAX

The first time I ever saw Max was probably in 1983, he was about six months old and he used to sit on the street at the door way of a furniture store on the North side of town. He was never tied up or anything, he just sat there 41 day watching the world go by. At this time I owned a Staffordshire Bull terrier and when I walked...

CAN-AM BOYS’ CH BEETLEJUICE

Ch Beetlejuice was whelped from a breeding between Can-Am Boy’s Ch Becky & WCC’s Rock. Rock was a very good son of Garrett’s Jeep bred back to his half sister, Crenshaw’s Dolly.
