The American Dog Breeders Association, Inc. was started in September, 1909 as a multiple breed association. The residing president, Mr. Guy McCord, was an avid fancier and breeder of the American Pit Bull Terrier, and was a close friend of Mr. John P. Colby. Mr. Colby was the mainstay of the A.D.B.A. which prompted the boast of being the "home" registration office of the Colby dogs. All members, in good standing, could register their dogs and litters with the registration department upon the yearly payment of $2.50 dues fee. It seems that the exclusive member’s idea gradually was replaced into an open registry to all owners and breeders of purebred dogs. Over time the association became focused on the registration of the American Pit Bull Terrier.

The A.D.B.A. passed from the hands of Mr. McCord to Mr. Frank Ferris in 1951. He, along with his wife Florence Colby, (the wife of the late John P. Colby) continued to run the A.D.B.A. on a limited scale, but with ever increasing emphasis on the registration of the A.P.B.T. breed exclusively.

In 1973, through the recommendation of Howard Heinzl, Ralph Greenwood and his family purchased the A.D.B.A. from Mr. Ferris, whose advancing age prompted his retirement. (Mr. Heinzl was a personal friend of Frank Ferris and a staunch supporter of the A.D.B.A., as he registered his dogs exclusively with A.D.B.A.) We often wish Frank could have lived to witness the growth of the present association. He would have been pleased.

Our association continues to grow in the USA and other countries overseas. The American Dog Breeders Association Inc. is the largest registration office of the American Pit Bull Terrier and now accepting other purebred dogs, usually working breeds.

Beginning 27 October 2006 the registry is opening its stud book to accept other purebred dogs.

The famous Jimmy Boots
jimmyboots5555.jpg

  The Texans had arrived the night before by plane. Willie Brown,
      Halliburton, Carver, Hall, to name a few and joined by Freddie Jones and
      Indian Sonny. The fans from Utah came with their entire families. Mr G has
      about ten kids himself, I think. Ed Weldon from Colorado along with them,
      totaling 20 men per side. Benny Bob is weighed at 53lbs, washed and enters
      the pit after the toss of a quarter. Brown waits in the pit while The Man
      from Utah Mr Greenwood brings in Jimmy Boots. The weigh in finds him over the
      weight of 52lbs by a mere 2oz BUT is over the weight. Texas decides to
      claim the forfeit as well they should, but The Man from Utah says... I
      still have 13 minutes before pit time to make the weight and he hurries into
      the house. Returning within the 13min it was heard he led the dog to a
      tree and then wiped the wet sand and mud from his dog's feet and tail.
      Jimmy Boots is weighed...on weight.. Good going Mr Greenwood,,Halliburton says.
      The fight is on. Jimmy Boots is washed and enters the pit, and Pit Your
      Dogs. Bets by the hundreds are called and accepted by both sides of the
      pit.
      These two dogs are more evenly matched than any other two dogs I have ever
      seen. They swapped stifles, shoulder holds, rolled, bit noses, and
      literally ShipWrecked each other the first 35min. Mr Carver says.
      A lot of encouragement from both sides. The scratching starts after a turn
      is called while both dogs are rolling after each other. Jimmy Boots to
      scratch,,,handle,,completed, more fighting, each dog is on top then on the
      bottom. I think Jimmy Boots is the harder biter, but Benny Bob seems to be
      able to reach in there no matter what hold Jimmy Boots takes. First one
      scratches, then the other. A count of how many times was not recorded, but
      no doubt about both these determined animals going accross. One hour
      fifteen min approximately, finds Jimmy Boots has lost the use of hisback
      legs from those crushing stifle holds, and on a scratch by Benny Bob the
      legs collapse, letting Benny Bob on top, crunched into a corner. They go
      to mouth fighting. Hard biting even now. Benny Bob loses a top cutter with
      Jimmy Boots chewing from the bottom. Looks like Texas is ahead now. A
      handle can only be made by Willie Brown as his dog is on top and they
      remain bunched into the corner. Time goes by as both dogs chew out their
      holds. Both handlers congratulating each other on the tremendous dogs they
      both have shown. One Hour Thirty,,the handle,,as The Man from Utah sees
      them free of holds. Brown picks up from the top and a leg dangles in front
      of Jimmy Boots, and he goes after it and grabs hold. Brown lets go again
      and this gets Jimmy Boots out of the corner and on top of Benny Bob,and he
      starts working. Handle,,scratch by Utah,,,fighting,,,handle,,,a scratch by
      Texas. One Hour Forty finds Jimmy Boots taking the top position. That Man
      From Utah can sure put one up, someone from Texas says. Shake the Bear Mr
      Greenwood tells Jimmy Boots and he shakes. Benny Bob laying out of holds now but
      trying to take a nibble in the rib cage every time Jimmy Boots shakes the
      shoulder, but he is completely exausted and critically hurt. Everyone
      thinks Benny Bob can never make his scratch now,,,then both dogs boil up
      on their feet together in holds. More fighting,,handle,,Benny Bob should
      never be able to go,,OVER HE GOES,,handle,,Jimmy Boots crosses. He bites
      in with that fire in his eyes,,,using the energy he should save to live
      with,,,handle,,Texas goes again although weak on his feet,,handle Jimmy
      Boots scratches,,handle Benny Bob lunges from the corner, but loses
      momentum half way over and is counted out 20 sec count. Its over,, Ed
      Weldon with Jimmy Boots and The Man from Utah the winner in two hrs and 5
      min.
