  1. The original “petey” was sired by Earl Tudor’s Blackjack. Tudor was infamous in his day for breeding and owning some of the greatest pit dogs of his time. Blackjack had a record of 16 wins in the fighting pits, which is a rather excellent record considering very few dogs ever made more than a few showings. This goes to show how much proper nurture can prevail over nature.

    Please don’t read this and assume that I support dog fighting or any other form of cruelty towards animals, but at one time there was a certain percieved honor involved in training and fighting dogs in the pit. Society has since evolved as have the majority of lowlifes that still fight our beloved companions.

    I currently own a beautiful pitbull that I picked up at the local shelter. She has never shown aggression towards anything and lives happily with my 3 cats. Bella and one of my cats sleep next to each other every night in my bed. I don’t think she knows she’s a pitbull, and just assumes she’s a big cat.
