    I used D. Gibson dog with great results.I Had a dog that was 50/50 Norrod/Gibson.She was intraverted and super shy.I could breed her to anything and get pure fire.The pups would kill each other if I didn't seperate them.Great times, to bad times have change.Don't even own a dog today

    I also had a 50/50 norrod/ Gibson dog. Miss that dog too. I personally like the norrod blood and have had no problems with it. Too bad Gibson is not selling dogs anymore, he had some really nice dogs.

    I had some old gibson dogs off saten born themerc them dogs I crossed ironhed/turtlebuster to them and got a good littercame home from work and all but one were dead (I named him trouble) that litter killed each other at 6 weeks old. that was the last of them that I seen. Biggun eddie culled the brood dog bitch from that said she threw currs one pup curred so she threw nothing but currs in his dumb ass eyes yea I said it bigun,(dumb ass) now you cant find that stuff ther aint no good stuff onthe market now that shit is just for paper and looks now and the stuff you do find is all crossed up its not pure or what not, you may find a 1/4 now.

    This is true but the difference also may because the bloodlines came from different breeders who bred for different traits.
    As for Dan Gibson dogs, I know what I sent him wasn't shy i.e. Ch. Dutchess like stock.
    The 50/50, some were, some weren't i.e. Bloodshot Red 2xw DG. wasn't.
    IMO if a dog can't breed true when family bred, it isn't something I wouldn't want to use in a cross.
    If the other bloodline proves to breed true, then the cross would be watering down the bloodline that does breed true.

    Old Family Reds is a breed of fighting dog from Ireland.
    Old Family Red Nose is a strain in the breed of the ApBT who has the looks and characteristics of the foundation dogs Old Family Reds.

    As for OFRN, mine of dead on!

    Gibson just recently got rid of some of the last of his old stock not long ago. He gave a buddy a 9year old bitch filled with pups. Its still out there... just not in many hands.

    I had a 3/4 Norrod 1/4 Red Inferno from Gibson. Wasn't a shy bone in his body. He'd try to eat any unknown grown men but liked women and children. Plus he was an extremely talented animal wit big cutters. No mouth to speak of tho he could out wrestle any thing.
  16. SIX weeks ewwww wheeeee!
  17. Yea i know i know i was just getting everyones opinion. Like my previous post Ironline, Southern Inferno, Flametree. What does everybody think of each one? Just trying to get some convo started.

    May I ask you for more info about this "breed" ?
    And, please, don't get me wrong. I like your statement.
    Are you saying the Old Family (Reds) are not the same breed as ... mmmmm ...
    well ... the other ones ? And those crosses are what made the APBT ?
    Pit dogs x pit dogs of different breeds = APBT ? Bulldog x Bulldog ? Bulldog x Terrier ? Bulldog/Terrier x Terrier ? Bulldog/Terrier x Bulldog ?
    We don't need to talk about all other kind of crosses that can be found in 'this breed' today. Because that would be probably more about strains, right ?
    If the Old Family (Red) dogs were a breed, what's the name of the breed ?
