Yeah, I've seen these pcitures before. it's kind of funny how the artists used some amateur techniques. Still, the dog is very familiar to our eyes.

If you had seen before without read the book you probably think that was a painter in the street but those artist were naturalist , a real rare one. But you right ...the Bull terrier looks like our APBT or Staffs but the old terrier i do not know modern breed like those .

I think the top picture, middle dog, best resembles a modern-day Pit Bull. I'd like to cross solid, working strain Scott American Bulldog (closest one can get to the English WORKING Bulldog) to a terrier (not sure which; perhaps Patterdale) to see if I can "recreate" a Bull-Terrier of the type many claim the Pit Bulldog is. Even if the breeding "fails" to deliver the offspring should be remarkable animals.

Well it absolutely makes sense being that the original bull n terriers were created to add more speed and agility to the bulldog. A working airedale is faster and a little more agile than a performance AB and will allow the AB to retain the size. Not to mention both have extremely high prey drive. I actually know a guy from a hunting forum I go to that actually takes his bitch airedale xena and runs down and kills coyotes. I have pics if anyone is interested.

Sorry it took me so ling fella's. Here they are. I got quite interested in the airedale after a buddy of mine was using one hogging. It wasn't no bulldog or a catch dog really but more of an all around dog who could do a little of everything and somethings better than most dogs. At any rate imagine a 100-125# pitbull that would be something awesome and could potentially be achievable with this mix. I have some other thoughts and theorys on what a pairing of an AB and airedale could do potentially.

I think keeping them under 80 lbs would be better and for chasing 'yotes 65 lbs would be ideal as it could run with them. An Airedale is another breed that I've seen crossed with gamebred Pit Bulls and the offspring crossed back into Airedales. Fiery sonsabitches. Kinda matches my personality I guess. :oops: I've been secretly craving one of these, too. I don't know where to find one though.

To recreate these dogs one merely needs to cross Scott American Bulldogs or Painter American Bulldogs with, say, the gamest of the Terriers (German Hunting Terrier and/or Patterdale). This SHOULD give us EXACTLY (OR DAMNED NEAR) what many believe the APBT is.

i would have to say that crossing an ab to a jagdt or patt would be great, but since both carry the wire haired gene, and being a pit is smooth coated, not gonna work. In temper and physicall yes, but not the actuall look. I think if you cross a good game EBT from ireland or scotland or serbia, youd have a closer idea to what the ""fresh"" pit terrier was. Id actually lean towards a painter/margentina dog over the soctt, as they have a great deal more pit in them, hence being closer to what your striving for. Id also like to see the ab crossed into say a airedale or a BRT, THAT would give you a high quality all around farm style dog, that will not only have all the guts and determination and physicall abilities to overcome anything, but they will bond ridiculously strong to the owner, and be highly protective and trainable.... Im really really starting to like this idea, and i HOPE somebodey does this combo, NOW!!!! Mike

Mike[/quote] Yes, but if the point is to "recreate" the bull and terrier dogsd of England it would be much better to start with original components. A "Heide Terrier [Jaghd Terrier crossed into a working Airdale) doesn't necessarily have long hair. Check out the following website: The Working Airedale Terrier website http://xsorbit26.com/users5/traditionalworkingairedaleterrier/index.php?topic=83.0 I have selected a thread concerning this mix. Hint: these dogs did not have the wavy or broken coat. Cross that back with a Patterdale and you'll probably be as close to whatever little demon was crossed into the working Bulldog at the time. There is a strain of working Airedale being bred by

[quote=buldog]i would have to say that crossing an ab to a jagdt or patt would be great, but since both carry the wire haired gene, Mike[/quote] Mike, I had crossed a APBT (patricks pure blood) with a Patterdale and the F1 still looks like a pure Apbt but with small size , around 18 kg and with smooth fur.This dog apbt x patterdale had crossed to a APBT (back cross) and the result was all litters carring the wire haired gene. And for that reason in that time i deleted the line. The F1 50/50 had more stamina and agility than a pure APBT.I will search for some old pictures in my data base to show here this dog.

There is a strain of working Airedale being bred by[/quote] Yes sir, i whole heartedly agree that some jagdt and airedales dont, being the red line style of airedale has no wiring, but i believe a tiny bit of a beard to its face and thats all. My idea, and i will say this, that if it doesnt happen within the next 5 yrs, i WILL do this, by crossing a great ab, like Vinays dog baine, to a female BRT, youd end up with, i think, the epitome of an all around dog, very trainable, very protective, very tough dog who should be about 95-105 lbs full grown, being more than enough dog for most peoples requirements. And talk about drive, if you use the correct ab lines, they themselves have more heart than needed by most people, and to cross it with a dog like the brt, who is a GIANT terrier, being ALL heart, they will have the abilities to be excellent PP dogs,sport dog, drovers, and i willing to bet they can be trained to be lgd. They may not bond to the flock as a sar or co would, but damn, theyd be nice to watch. And man, i mean they will have a great movement, as watching bullies for years run and jump, its like watchig miniature deer run, no wasted movments or effort. And seing a few BRT go, its quite similar, cept they have more of that IM ON THE LOOSE, EVERYONE SHOULD SEE ME thing going on. I think that this is a crossing that should be done, deserves to be done, and if nobody else will, ill do it. My reason for doing this wouldnt necesarily be to create a new breed or anything like that, but to make an all around great utility style dog that should excell in this country, as many of the great dogs here get used incorrectly, and are earning undeserved reputations.

I was thinking about your posts concerning AB + Working Airedale Terrier today, Mike. I was at a close friend's farm in Michigan, not more than 30 miles from Ann Arbor. They were asking about dogs and I mentioned working Airedales, Irish Terriers and, of course, crosses. They mentioned coyote issues and they see them in groups of threes so I suggested exactly what you are interested in: working American Bulldog into a working Airedale. They were so enthused about the idea that he wrote down The Working Airedale Terrier site as well as Molosserdog website. I think the combination would make a very hardy farm dog.
