Thread: Tacoma Bloodline

  1. Tacoma Bloodline

    The Tacoma Line was developed through the breeding activities of Charles Doyle of Winamac Indiana. The great dog, Tacoma Jack, was whelped in 1927. He was owned by Al Brown. Using Tacoma Jack and Brown’s Judy, Mr. Brown produced a number of outstanding dogs. Several of these, including Tacoma Jack’s Replica, were sent to Charles Doyle. Using Tacoma Jack’s Replica and other Tacoma dogs, and with liberal infusions of Corvino blood through such great dogs as Corvino’s Braddock and Corvinos’s Shorty, Mr. Doyle produced a long line of courage and sound dogs. Some of the best included Ch. Young Joe Braddock, Ch. Doyle’s Tacoma Disaster I, Ch. Doyle’s Tacoma Disaster II, Ch. Kane Tacoma Blaze, and Ch. Tacoma All-A-Blaze. Ch. Tacoma Frivolous Sal, owned by Howard and Janice Hadley, won the National Specialty in 1954. Subsequently Tacoma crosses have been important in all other major AST lines.

    Mr. Doyle, who was active in the National Club both as a board member and long-time Secretary, strongly believed in keeping the Staff as Game and Functional as possible. Of all the AST lines, the Tacoma dogs have easily the most outstanding record for courage and capability.

    Al Brown's Tacoma Jack was registered with the ADBA, UKC, as a Pit and the AKC as a Staff.

  2. California baby!!! Elvis you f'n rock!! Tacoma is one of my favorite bloodlines of all time. It is said these dogs were of the highest quality, that if you were a ax man in the pacific northwest and you didn't own THE Tacoma bull dog you weren't much of an ax man. Thanks for the run down! This is a huge deal because of the gameness and the fire these "amstaffs" posessed. Makes you think twice about amstaffs in general.

    May I also add Tacoma was used widely as an outcross to add some working ability into a line. The Tacomas DA made it hard to keep it in it's pure form as amstaffs are notoriously less DA then the APBT. It wasn't used much in APBT blood because it was considered amstaff blood. This bloodline was no joke and of very high quality as far as confirmation and working ability go.

    When you can tell yourself you know you've seen enough to form opinions that you might apply, THEN, you can think about the best way to apply them.

    The Tacoma Line was the only old type of Staffordshire Terriers ever allowed to be advertized in the ADBA AMERICAN PIT BULL TERRIER GAZETTE and it only happened once.

    What Month, Year, Volume and Issue was it in and who placed the add (their name... first and last)?

    The first one to post the right answer will win something special. (Hint, hint Dan, LOL)

    Good luck everyone!

    I know this isnt right..but this is the closest thing that I have found so far lol



    In Richard Pascoe’s book, "The American Staffordshire Terrier" he mentions that there are five major lines in the foundation of the American Staffordshire Terrier. Tacoma, X-pert, Ruffian, Crusader, and "California" which is not actually a line, but a combination of lines. The Tacoma was developed by Charles Doyle and Al Brown beginning with the whelping of Tacoma Jack in 1927. The Tacoma line is influenced by Corvino blood early in its history. The Tacoma line is known for its courage and working ability


    I will keep reading............................
