No i dont think so but like you said it could be a different name.Knox had a few really good dogs from various strains. He had some good Chavis blood and Tants blood and he had good STP stock as well, as there is a shorty pants down from Chavis stock could there be a connection or confusion?. There is a Texas heat Reba is that her? ALOT of dogs have multiple names and owners.
Obiously the parents to the dam are alligator/garner/bully(son) type dogs and are at the heavier weight of the strain.
Hicks.. had loposay/bozo dogs goin in Oklahoma. That blood as well as his crutchfield blood; Hicks turned into catch weight blue dogs basically. Yeah he has red dogs and what not but hicks produces ALOT of catch weight blue dogs.
Just from knowing the background of the two sources tell me your gettin a larger APBT and one with catch drive and weight, if you decide to go this route. Keep doing your homework.
