Ahh yes, not many remember Savage Captain Bob, but those were some well bred dogs. How was your gyp bred?
I had known A.D. Castelli back in the late 1970s and early 1980s when I was in Florida and he had some good dogs. They were all down from his Savage Captain Bob and his Belle Starr bitch who went back to some of the old Wise’s Max/Red Devil blood.
I owned a female related to this dog --
And another female later on, her mother was scatterbred with some OFRN and Mazzeis Captain or Ceasar blood, and her sire was a brother of this bitch –
Castelli and his line are all long gone now. Many of his dogs were sent to Canada years ago but I don’t think there is any more of that line left.
Here is another from his line with a photo –
and a planned breeding with the dog above –
It’s a shame the line died out as they were very nice dogs, most were red and about 40 to 45 pounds with good temperament and structure.
Damn Brindle, you're older than I thought you were !
One of two more breedings here, put some of Perry on ice and I'm out.
It’s really difficult to make that kind of decision. Is your femal an Amstaf or APBT? Either way it can be tough to let the pups go no matter what the price when you are unsure about the care they will get.Yeah sometimes I feel older than dirt! I read somewhere that once you get over 60, it's tough to handle a 50 pound bulldog… and I'm seeing it with the young female I have now, damn she's strong!
I hear you on the breeding aspect. My gyp is well bred, but if I breed her, what do I do with the pups? If one cares where they go, it is very hard to find good correct homes for a drivey energetic pit bull that will most likely be dog aggressive. How many pet owners can handle that? And some so called "working" homes do not always treat their dogs well.
Your Perry is a fine bulldog, and you're lucky you can freeze a male and preserve him for the future that way. With a bitch, all you can do is get them spayed, and that's the end of that.
