We didn't meet Will until July 2003 and didn't even know about the OBB until the end of 2003 when we were looking for something with qualities of a pit but without the high drive and energy of a pit. We bred pits before that, but when I crushed my face in a 4-wheeler accident (July 2003, 2 weeks after meeting Will), I just couldn't keep up with them anymore. Broke my heart to get rid of our pits!! We were talking with Will to see if he knew of anything and he said, "Have you ever heard of the Olde Boston Bulldogge?"
The rest is history!! We got our first OBBs Spring of '04, 3 from Nathaniel. Ash was off of Neil's lines and Jake and Sadie were off of Nathaniel's lines. Jake and Sadie didn't make the cut (Jake for aggression, broke through our privacy fence and killed the neighbors Pom, and he looked like a pit and Sadie for an underbite that could have been used as a shelf). Ash as everyone knows, became an essential part of our program.
