OUR HISTORY

 I WAS FIRST INTRODUCED TO THE A.P.B.T. THE YEAR OF 1978 IN MY
HOMETOWN YOUNGSTOWN, OHIO. THERE I LEARNED A LOT ABOUT OUR
YOUNG WARRIORS BY BEING, AND HANGING AROUND SOME GOOD HONEST
OLD TIME DOG MEN AND WOMEN WHO LOVED THE A.P.B.T. FOR WHAT IT
WAS BRED FOR. THEY TAUGHT ME HOW TO RESPECT THE COMMUNITY AND
TO BE RESPONSIBLE FOR MY DOGS ACTIONS, HEALTH, MEDICAL ATTENTION
AND MOST OF ALL, A PROPER KENNEL CONTAINMENT FORMAT.

TO MAKE A LONG STORY SHORT, IN THE YEAR OF 1988 I LOST ALL OF MY
DOGS, MY FAMILY AND EVERYTHING ELSE THAT I HAD TO A BAD DRUG
ADDITIVE LIFE STYLE THAT LASTED UNTIL MAY 20, 1995. I WENT TO GET
HELP, AND GOD HAS BLEST ME WITH ANOTHER CHANCE TO DO THINGS THE
RIGHT WAY. MY DREAM AND GOAL IS TO START BACK BREEDING AND
CARING FOR THE A.P.B.T. WITH ALL LEGAL INTENTIONS IN MIND.

I SOUGHT OUT TO FIND THE BEST HONEYBUNCH BLOOD THAT I COULD FIND
THAT WAS BRED OUT OF TRUE GAME PROVEN STOCK. WE BOUGHT A LITTLE
BUCKSKIN FEMALE PUP FROM MAINLINE KENNELS THAT WAS OUT OF THE
WHITES "TAB JR."X WILDSIDE'S "RUFF-E-NUFF" LITTER. WE NAMED HER LITTLE
MAINLINE'S "SPECIES". INDEED THIS LITTLE BITCH IS TRULY A REAL BULLDOG,
AND WE DECIDED TO MAKE HER OUR FOUNDATION BITCH HERE AT THE SAFE
HOUSE KENNELS. WE REALLY DO THANK MAINLINE KENNELS FOR SENDING
US THIS HONEST LITTLE BITCH. HER BLOODLINE IS JEEP/REDBOY/CH. BLACK
COWBOY.

I MET A LOCAL BREEDER BY THE NAME OF FRANK ROCCA WHO HAD A
YOUNG PURE WHITE STUD NAMED "ALBINO RHINO". THIS DOG WAS BRED
ALMOST LIKE SOME OF THE DOGS THAT I OWNED BACK IN THE 1980-85 ERA.
HIS BLOODLINE IS COTTON BULLET/CORVINO/AND LINEBRED IRONHEAD. WE
MATED "SPECIES" TO "ALBINO RHINO" AND WE GOT 11 HEALTHY HYPER PUPS
IN THAT LITTER. I KEPT 4 OF THE PUPS: RHEINS "SMOKE" WHICH WAS THE
PICK OF THE LITTER, AND THE ONLY PURE BUCKSKIN PUP IN THE LITTER.
RHEINS "SIR SNAKE", RHEINS "SIR ZEKE" AND RHEINS "RHINO JR." ARE OUR
BEASTS FROM THE EAST. WE SOLD 5 FEMALES AND 2 MALES, AND NEVER
HAD ANY COMPLAINTS ABOUT ANY OF OUR DOGS.

WE
JUST GOT A CRAZY YOUNG STUD WHICH IS OUT OF FRANK ROCCA'S
LAST BREEDING
HE MADE, "WILLIE WHITE" X "NAPALM MOJO". HIS NAME IS
ROCCA'S "SUGE KNIGHT". HIS BLOODLINE IS "STONEWALL" X "JEEP". OUR
PLANS ARE TO CONCENTRATE ON BREEDING, AND KEEPING THE ROCCA
BLOODLINES ALIVE, AND BRED THE RIGHT WAY. WE REALLY BELIEVE THAT
THE ROCCA BLOODLINES STAND A CUT ABOVE THE REST. OUR DOGS HAVE
EXCELLENT TEMPERMENTS, THEY ARE REAL HYPER AND HAVE WINNING
ATTITUDES. THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF SAFEHOUSE KENNELS.
