Smithy?

Recommended Posts

From what I've read, Jack was Smithy x Jill, Vicky was Jack x Shovel and Stan was Monty x Vicky.

Stan was Tim x Vicky

D, South , was it ' big tim' that the bred off?. In hindsight it seems to come to lite about the old crossing with them names, and probably a trait, of Middleton, or bit of some in some ones line?

Just a question from a newbie so all get in line to shoot me down why are so many people so hung up on a dog of unknown origin from way back when surly there are blokes out there that have had real good dogs also but not had opertunity or name to get the dog to the forefront of the terrier world

I would say its because Smithy's blood is in a high percentage of todays black terriers.

I agree FatMan and IMO a compliment should be payed to the few lads that still have kennels heavily based on Smithy.

No matter how Smithy was bred or what he done in his career those lads who've kept things right and tight after 30 + years have something to be proud of.

That's if their terriers are workers and their breeders are truthful.

 

In a funny way it's a compliment to Smithy that he's still being debated nowadays, often by lads who weren't even born when he was around.

Just the newbie again so if a line is kept for 30+ years how.many times would new.blood be needed to stop deformations happening in pups because I can't amagine such a line is only bred from every 10 years there for wouldn't such a line be far removed from said famous God dog that it was Bearley related I'm probably wrong just trying to fathom out how it's done
