    Greenwoods GR CH Jimmy Boots

    This one is for Pulldawg :)
    Not much on this dog though, posted up what I could find!
    For HISTORICAL purposes only.

    Greenwood's
    GR CH Jimmy Boots

    A world famous and bone-crushing pit dog, he was raised as a family dog and left other dogs alone-unless they made the terrible mistake of attacking him. He was also an intelligent animal that had been trained to do tricks. One trick, his owner would ask him what the girls in Laramie do. (a prostitution town) Jimmy Boots would roll over and lay with his legs open!

    Greenwood's/Weldon's Jimmy Boots. A great dog in his day and brother to Kephart's Tip the sire of Burton's Gr. Ch. Hank. Jimmy Boots is most remembered for his great win over Benny Bob who was believed to be the best at his weight after he stopped his father Walling's Bullyson.

    Benny Bob went back to Willie Brown's yard and was later matched into Ralph Greenwood's Jimmy Boots. Which was said to have been the most vicious match ever seen. R. Haliburton and W. Brown did the conditioning on Benny Bob and Greenwood the same for Jimmy Boots. It was said the match was like watching two grown men with icepicks and you knew it just couldn't go any further, but that five minutes would pass and then you knew for sure it was impossible to go another five minutes. The whole match was like that...because no two dogs could take that kind of punishment. After the match you could have bet that it didn't last longer than 20 minutes, that's how exciting it was, but it lasted nearly 2 hours with Jimmy Boots being the winner.

  10. I did know that. I believe the picture is from strattons book where he remarks that the conditioning of Jimmy Boots is a tad on the skinny side.
