    Welcome Carmen!

    Glad to have someone as knowledgeable as you on here.

    Do you have any stories of Mr. Joe Corvino to share with us? Can you tell us of what is left of his strain of dogs? I've only read about a few men that had recieved dogs from him.

    Anything you are willing to share about him would be an asset to this website and greatly appreciated.

    I second everything that Searcy Jeff asked, and I also wondered if you felt this article was an accurate depiction of your grandfather?

    Welcome to the forum:)
     
  10. sorry I got tied up for a while. Sonny Sykes purchased all of my grandfathers dogs when he passed away . I was a young boy at the time of his death and none of the Corvino sons wanted anything to do with the continuing the bloodline . There were four sons and four daughters

  12. It's really no big deal , If you ever met my grandfather then you could say WOW. He was years ahead of his time

    Lol...don't be so humble! ...and it's still great to know you!

    Just curious on what you though about "the new" bully lines they have today?

    I think it's sad that they call them "pitbulls'. I am ok with the name American Bully, though.

    I'm not a fan. I like the 'old school' lines best. Just my opinion.
