The earliest records of Bandogs in America were during the civil war. They were used by both sides as bullet fodder and to wreak havoc amongst the low ranks. Many were also trained to bring down horses. These dogs were basically imported Mastiffs and Bullmastiffs mixed with Bulldog and Pitbull Terrier.

Hi Draco :) Do you want me to remove it, or do you want me to credit your grandfather and add any other info. you might have on the dog? He's gorgeous btw. That's a very well circulated picture, but I don't recall ever hearing any personal details about the dog or his owner.

Let me know either way :)

Take Care,
Barbara
