In my line, there is a preponderance of Tonkawa as Roemeo is very linebred dog bred by Mary out of two dogs bred by Hendrix Harper.  (Tonkawa goes back to mostly Ruffian dogs with a small amount of X-Pert).  Click on their names to see their pedigrees.  Some of my favorite am staffs were bred by Hendrix Harper of Tonkawa and are pictured below.

I also fell in love with some other old lines, finding that they had something great to add to what I am trying to accomplish, and I thank those breeders that are helping me to achieve the dream of producing the best amstaffs I can.  

Dogs that I currently own go back to  Rowdytown, Old Sierra, Buena Vista, Tonkawa, a bit of Sindelar, a bit of Magnolia, a bit of Rounders.  I feel very lucky to have such a gene pool to work with, and I will not limit myself to "just" Ruffian since I've seen some problems with tightly breeding on that line, although I definitely believe it to be the greatest line that has existed.  I love the fiery intelligence of the X-Pert dogs and feel proud to have added their contribution to my breeding.
