Colby dogs very seldomly ever through a rednose way back in the day and the reason they dont occur today is because the genes simply didnt survive.
Thats what I said.. They culled them from their program..
They were heavily against fight crazy dogs... and most of the red noses they produced were just that... and NO .. NOT TOO MANY people have the first COLBY book.. Yes the one by lou probably has alot of people who have them, however the not the book written by his uncle in 1936.
I totally agree with everything else you said and nothing really to add except we should remember that the early Colby stock and Lightener stock went both ways. Early Corvino dogs were black nosed and black brindle hardly OFRN and a good portion of OFRN is rooted in Colby blood.
Im going w/ colby.. the purest family, purest REAL strain, oldest family and strain as many OFR were founded with colbys as well check E. Crenshaw dogs. A great outcross to any battle bred hound or any working strain of APBT
