About us

I got involved with the breed in the mid 90’s. A good friend of me had 2 American Staffordshire Terriers and worked with them in obedience and  Schutzhund.

I was very impressed of the breed , the versatiliy of this dog, his motivation for working, his happiness, his endless power and his devotion to the people.


After some years of trying to discover  the breed, by visiting dog shows, assisting at canine competitions and visiting breeders, my first American Staffordshire Terrier is born in 2001 at Pititon’s Kennel. Bubba is a good boy, he has high drives, is very playful, a good worker and very sweet with the people. He has all what i looked for in this breed.

 

My enthusiasm for this breed became bigger and bigger and in 2003 i got Chicca and Panda from Mississippi Kennel in Italy from my friends Sabrina, Salvatore and Stefano. I liked their dogs very much, they are great people and i am very happy with the choice that i made.

Mississippi Red Mama Mia finished quite easily her Champion title with two big wins in a row. In 2005 our female Chicca competed at the National Speciality in Las Vegas, USA. She was handled by Bonnie Gottier and Chicca finished with a 5. place on the first day and a 2. place on the second day. We were very happy about this result.

 

Our first puppies are born in 2005. They are out of our male Bubba and our female Panda.

 

In 2007 our second litter is born. The puppies are out of Majestic Mississippi Peter and CH. Mississippi Red Mama Mia. 

 

In 2011 we had a litter out of Rounder's I'm Ur Huckleberry and Mississippi Red American Beauty.

 


 
We work in obedience, we participate regularly at dog shows and we have occasionally pups to sell. Our puppies come with an official FCI pedigree, they are registered and medical checked.


For the future, we try to conserve the temperament, the intelligence and the beauty of the American Staffordshire Terrier.


If you are seriously interested in this wonderful breed, feel free to contact me.
