    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]EARL TUDOR’S BREEDING METHOD:[/FONT]​

    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]It was Back years ago at a time in Texas when the Sport of Matching gamedogs was [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]at a peak, a time before it became against the law to match a fighting dog. Back then [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]in the 1960's and 1970's when the game was at a peak in the U.S.A, Texas was the [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]state where the purest families of DIBO dogs was being bred and matched. Back then [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]in Texas there where more gamedog people breeding and matching dogs than all the [/FONT]

    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]Gamedogs throughout the U.S.A, near 700 of them was own by the Texas Dog men of[/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]that time. Back then their where only a few different families of American Gamedogs, [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]and those families were bred close kin to the other families. Back then the Purest [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]family of the Breed was the Earl Tudor bred dogs of his DIBO family, and the other [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]proven families were close kin to Tudors DIBO family, the DIBO family was the most [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]matched and proven family in the breed, and was the purest bred family in the breed. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]Back then their was more DIBO bred dogs in Texas then their was in any area in the [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]U.S.A, these were the dogs of number that was being schooled for the pit, and [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]matched in the MAIN PITS in Texas at that time. EARL TUDOR was still alive at that [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]time, and he had the purest of the DIBO family on his yard in Oklahoma, only a few [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]miles from the Texas broader. Back then just as now their was only a small number of [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]the purest family of DIBO dogs, most all those very pure bred ones, Earl tried to keep [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]control of the way they would be bred. In the 1960's Earl controlled all of the purest [/FONT]
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica,adobe-helvetica,Arial Narrow]family's of the purest DIBO dogs at that time. In those years of the 1940's to the [/FONT]

    Interesting read Sportingdog. I don’t believe that Tudor can take credit for Dibo though as his getting this great game dog and prepotent producer was somewhat of a fluke.

    The story goes that Con Feeley bred the original dogs that would ultimately lead to the Dibo strain from Old Irish Family imports. (Colby dogs played an important role.) At the end of the Korean War, the Feeley strain was intact and the stage was set for the coming of dogs such as Dibo. The breeding of Dibo was not a carefully planned affair as many would lead us to believe – it was in fact a chance breeding made by an amateur named Smith who just happened to have absolutely top end dogs of nearly pure Feeley lines. He simply bred a male to a female. Smith sold Dibo as a pet to a man who sought a companion for his young son – the son named the dog Dumbo but soon got tired of him. His father, Jensen, traded him to Howard Heinzl for a collie pup. Heinzl knew that Dibo was well bred and out of Bounce X Bambi – (there was heinzl blood there) Heinzl also had reason to doubt Dibo due to his dam’s sister not being game. (An important consideration to a dogman.)

    Heinzl says that Dibo ran loose on his yard until two years of age and would stay out of the way of the chained dogs, showing no inclination nor desire to fight. Dibo would even follow Heinzl around when he fed the other dogs and not bother them. So, at this stage, Dibo was not much of a prospect to a fighting man at all. Tudor visited Heinzl and got Dibo from him – when Dibo “switched on,†he not only became a great pit dog, he also became a great producer, producing greats such as Tudors “White Rockâ€, Spike and Jeff, + quite a few other noted for outstanding ability.

    Dibo was a great example of what a pit dog should be like – he was game, he was fire in the pit, he was a prepotent sire but he was a very easy going dog to live with that loved people. It was also noted by those who preached and bred for gameness above all else, that with the coming of Dibo, many began to bred for ability instead. The Dibo offspring had enough ability to get them through matches without their gameness being tested. This was not necessarily good as many a dog would fight whilst he was ahead, only to quit when he started to come off second best.

    But Dibo is one of the legends and whilst Tudor did not breed him, he made the name and created the Legend.
