>I don't have much info, but I do know that my dad took over handling of Heino when no one else could. He was at CRB in 68 or 69. His name is Glenn Riese. We too wonder what happened to Heino. I do have access to one photo of my dad with Heino and my dad has one of him looking ready to kill through the kennel fence. If you have any info we would love to get a response. Thank you.

> I too was at CRB same time. My dogs were Flash and George (a female). Flash had to be put-down, just plain ole eat up with all kinds of internal stuff. Later I tried to get in on Heino, that wasn't to be be, not in my life time, so THANK GOD FOR GEORGE being available. I don't know for sure, but I believe Heino and Devil are one in the same. Heino was the meanest thing on 4-legs I ever saw. One reputation Heino had, (do not know if true) is out of x-amount of handlers he bit, turned on, almost all of them. Could this be the same HEINO!!??
Good luck Freddie.
