Hi folks,

I can go off about who I am or am not but lets make it easy and breezy ;-)

First I am noones beacon of glory but what I do is try in every way possible to save this breed from extinction. My efforts have reversed county, city and state directives toward BSL. I have received thank you letters from town committees who were researching the breed after activists started anti-breed campaigns. My primary focus is education and research!



I own too many but not enough APBTs http://www.matrixkennels.com

I am involved in rescue as much as possible and believe in health testing of even rescue dogs because one dog we placed ended up with dysplasia and as a rescuer that is as bad as a breeder putting such a problem in a home (well not quite as bad). We currently have a very nice little pitbull with excellent hip conformaiton, a good heart and stable temperament ready for adoption.


I am head of research of matrix Canine Research Institute. We have 3 submitted publications that wipe out the claims of JJSacks regarding the bite statistics of the pit bull.

I am curator of the APBT network and APBT conformation which is arguably the single most informative source of pit bull information (thanks to all those who help me with it).

I AM NOT PERFECT BUT AT LEAST I ATTEMPT TO DO WHATS RIGHT!

There's a fine line between genius and insanity. I have erased this line.
