Pete Sparks, longtime pit dog breeder, stated in an article that appeared in Sporting Dog Journal
in 1984, that just about every pedigree on a pit bull could be counted on being falsified, with the exception
of the Colby dogs.
With that said, common sense would once again move us to include that consideration into the breeding equation of practically every line existing today. All it takes is one dog to be excluded or included in a pedigree to ruin years of hard work and breeding. That is what has happen to the Old Family Red Nose line as we have been taught to know it today.
The Old Family Red Nose Dogs that were in the early segments of pit bull history were not like the Red Nose dogs we see today, no matter how hard people may try to get you to believe otherwise. They were extremely different in nature and function, like most pit bulls of that era. Today Red Nose Families are erroneously labeled Old Family Red Nose when in fact they are not. Why? One reason is human pride and ego. Many have found some sense of accomplishment in their lives through owning and breeding pit bulls. It’s true. Even when a person appears to be of good character with a measure of accomplishment in their life, sometimes there is still something missing.
So the hobby or sport of breeding pit bulls goes beyond just doing that….it embraces other factors of life and mind that have ruined many a good bloodline, The Old Family Red Nose being one.
