These are the dogs of legend; the icons of the breed and how the dogs were meant to appear. They are the oldest
and purest bloodline of purebred APBT's in the world today.
The Colby line of dogs was started in 1889 by John P. Colby of Newburyport, MA. He utilized some of the best dogs available
at the time from Ireland and England to create his strain which remains unchanged today.
Although he died at the beginning of WWII, the kennel was maintained by his wife and daughter-in-law. When he returned
from his tour of duty, son Louis picked up where his father left off and the rest as "they" say is history.
Colby dogs come in a variety of color morphs (brindle, buckskin, red and heavy white) but DO NOT come in red-nose,
blue or any other modern colors that have been developed.
This line is truly a piece of American history and the majority of pure-bred APBT's in the world today can be traced
back to the Colby line of dogs.
