The Bulldog Nuisance



The Record-Union, March 13, 1894


The Bulldog Nuisance.
It is a common thing these days to hear of persons being bitten by bulldogs, which breed appears to be rapidly increasing about town.
Last evening a little girl named Russell was sent to a store at Fourth and P streets and while on the way she was set upon and badly bitten by a vicious bulldog.

February 3, 1909...The Foutainhead of the "American" Pit Bull Terrier,
John P. Colby is defeated and his two year old nephew is killed by one of his breeding animals.

7 months later he would co-found the American Dog Breeder's association.


In 1935 he would finally persuade the AKC to accept Pit Bulls under the regal sounding Staffordshire brand.


This is the most significant DBRF in American History and it's show how the Pit Community is run by sociopaths. He should have been run out of the community and stripped of registry privileges instead of being worshipped.
