LOL ... seems like that. My point is to just remind inquiring minds that controversey and speculation exist even among the so called "experts". Stratton sold many books on Pit Bulls. That does not prove that he is "absolutely" correct in his history. He got what information he could like anyone else and ran with it. We all do the same thing unless we are an actual participant and are honest about what we see and understand.
1920's was a long time for Stratton as well. When he refers to OFRN its only in a modern application and his opinion.
A good picture to begin with of a red nose dog that is a foundation game link is "FERGUSON'S CENTIPEDE". I think that is much closer in breeding and apperance to what people are trying to call OFRN today.
Stratton's book is good reading and contains vital information on some subjects, but I care to disagree with some of his ideas on pit bulls.
