Original 1918 Pitbull Color Photo “Stubby” KY Sailor, Bubble Glass, WWI

This model pit bull, exemplifying the early standards of the breed, is identified in ink on the back of the photo and also on the protective backing. The frame is hand painted.

“Stubby” proudly shows off his best mate. A. D. Merida who fought in World War I. His home was in Kentucky.

Sailor Merida and Stubby pose on a dovetailed sea chest. I wish I had found the chest!

We believe every owner of a pit bull must be an ambassador for the breed. Our personal experience is that our dogs need more protection from people than people need from them. They are not perfect and abuses of the dogs abound. We believe that abuses, whether valid acts of aggression, or cruelty must be taken seriously. We love our smiling pit bulls and all bull dogs. Thank You
