In the FIAPBT we preferred not to place our credit inside the historical pictures, since we considered that it is a way to spoil it, diminishing the fan enjoying and would damage to an historical value, which is patrimony and inheritance of the own breed.
GENETIC OF THE LEGEND TO CALLED:
In 1927, Maurice Carver being a young one already even showed considerably, notes of Dogman.
“Mr. Ronnie” was imported from
The three more important breeders of the race of all the times, had in common to Tudor´s "Dibo" but in different concepts:
- Howard Heinzl don´t were the breeder of Tudor´s "Dibo". (To see the articulate in the Web Site of Villa Liberty " WHAT NOBODY TO WRITING STILL ABOUT THE BEST APBT OF ALL TIMES, TUDOR´S “DIBO”. ")
- Earl Tudor was the owner of "Dibo" when Howard Heinzl to give Earl like gift and Earl Registry him with his last name, Tudor´s.
- Maurice Carver (Known like THE SILVER FOX) was the breeder that better knew to take advantage of and to conserve through his breeding, the valuable genetic or blood of Tudor´s "Dibo", in special, through the IRONHEAD and BULLYSON crossings. . The Legacy of the dogs of Maurice, continuous nowadays intact through of the genetics of “Mr. Ronnie”.
TUDOR'S "DIBO", was the spine and the pattern to follow in the breeding of Maurice Carver with the APBT, the same that other good breeders like; Howard Heinzl, Earl Tudor, John Fonseca, Leo Kinard, Ralf Greenwood, George Saddler, Roonie Hyde, Don Maloney, James Crenshaw, Mc. Cool, Enrique Morfín, Jim Twardowski (R-Gang´s), D. Stubbs, Ruben Valenzuela, Gary Hammonds, Bert Sorrel, Floyd Boudreaux, William Lacefield, Pat Patrick, Indian Sonny, Scotty Nelson, Don Mayfield, etc.

Some of the most important children of Tudor´s "Dibo" and were bred by Maurice Carver:
Other importants children of Tudor´s "Dibo":
"Mr. Ronnie" comes to the 100% from the Maurice Carver´s dogs; In fact, “Mr. Ronnie” is the last APBT that still is with life, being direct son of a dog breeding by Maurice Carver, his mother Carver´s “Miss Ronnie”, who, her last litter had it with 14 years old and of that litter "Mr. Ronnie" was borned.
"Mr. Ronnie" is a dog that has many merits and curiosities all over his life and in several facets, he never let astonish to us.
Making reference to that, "Mr Ronnie" is direct son of a female breeding by Maurice Carver, I must say to transmit of the commendable thing of this last, that excluding the descendants of "Mr. Ronnie", solely there grandgrandsons of some dog breeding by Maurice Carver are left alive at the present time. Observing sole this last data, the genetic or blood of "Mr. Ronnie" is PATRIMONY and HERITAGE for the APBT of the present time.
Villa Liberty´s “Tudor Dibo” (Mr. Ronnie) with 12 years old.
Peculiarly, we can appreciate in the genealogy of "Mr. Ronnie", the track of the past in the genetic selection elaborated and worked by The Silver Fox with the APBT. This was based in a heavy genetic load of his more appraised dogs like for example; CARVER´S “SATCH”, CARVER “BLOODY SUNDAY”, CARVER'S “IRONHEAD” , CARVER'S “MEANIE” WALLING'S “BULLYSON”, CARVER'S “MISS SPIKE”, ART'S “MISSY” (CARVER), TUDOR'S “SPIKE”, CARVER'S BLACK WIDOW, CARVERS BLACK GIRL and as no, the legendary TUDOR'S “DIBO”.
Thanks to the whim of the chances and the peculiarities of the life, after to have spent 28 years after the death of Maurice Carver, great great breeder and where there are them, nowadays to the doors of year 2007, surprising we found that "Mr. Ronnie" is a son of one of those dogs pertaining to the quarry of the very respectable breeder Mr. Maurice Carver.
Other anecdotal data of many that “Mr. Ronnie” has, are that in fifth generation of his genealogy, we can read the names of legendary dogs that for many years, have been appearing not even in the eighth generation of the alive APBT with the oldest genetics.
We will name to some of these classic ones that appear in the fifth generation of “Mr. Ronnie”; Once to Tudor´s "Dibo", three times to Carver´s "Black Widow" (The best female of all times together with Carver´s Honeybunch and Carver´s “Black Girl”), one to Tudor´s "Spike" (The best son of Tudor´s "Dibo" together with Boudreaux´ "Blind Billy"), one to Boudreaux´ "Blind Billy", one to Trahan´s "Rascal" (Brother of father of "Dibo"), etc. etc.
BOUDREAUX' BLIND BILLY (100% of “Dibo”).
It is important to mention that “Mr. Ronnie” besides to have once in fifth generation to Tudor´s "Dibo", also has four times more in sixth generation, 10 more in seventh, other 19 more in eighth and thus we can find very many repetitions of Tudor´s "Dibo" in his genealogy, until arriving at his 16 generation. Given this great amount of repetitions of Tudor´s "Dibo" within the genealogy of “Mr. Ronnie”, it is the explanation of because this magnify animal is the one that greater percentage has of the genetics or blood of Tudor´s "Dibo", with a 52´58% and enough difference to the other alive APBT, with the exception of his descendants, of course.
Genetically this 52´58%, come to be equivalent as if “Mr. Ronnie” was direct son of Tudor´s "Dibo" and in addition he also had him in his fifth generation. Simply impressive, considering that Tudor´s "Dibo" died half century ago. “Mr. Ronnie”, is without a doubt some a genetic treasure, that thanks to the work and dedication of the Old Silver Fox (M. Carver), to arrived to the present time like a gift from the nature.
TRAHAN'S RASCAL (brother of father of “Dibo”).
After the study with thoroughness that has been made, referring to the best dogs of all the times of this breed dog, the 95% of these, presented/displayed a common denominator and was that all of them presented/displayed a high percentage of Tudor´s "Dibo".
Pat Patrick considers to “Bolio” after Tudor´s "Dibo", the best APBT of all the times. "Bolio" was bred by Maurice Carver. Patrick enjoyed much with this tribute to Maurice Carver.
Indeed this percentage and we do not think that it is by chance, was the indicator of which at the most high was the percentage with respect to Tudor´s "Dibo", greater QUALITY and recognition had the animal at issue and not for to have these percentage, this was by the PURE QUALITY that the animal had. Of here one of the reasons for the success in the dogs of Maurice, since he based on his breeding a high percentage of the genetic or blood of Tudor´s "Dibo", getting to be many of his dogs like the best ones of all the times.

With “Mr. Ronnie” and his sons “Blue Eye”, “Mr. Carver”, and “Carver 2”, with “RED DIBO” and with “TOP SECRET”(STOMPANATO), nowadays in the present time, Villa Liberty kennel reinforces the work developed by the Carver legend, to maintain and to conserve alive this genetic everything what we can and by the greater numbers of years possible.
The genetic of “Mr. Ronnie” is very heavy in CARVER´S “SATCH” (HYDE) and CARVER “BLOODY SUNDAY” (HYDE), two of the best dogs to breed by Maurice Carver, being these the parents of many of the best APBT recognized of the last time, like for example: CARVER'S SUE, HYDE'S BILLY SUNDAY, HYDE'S FANCY, COX' CISCO, WILLIAMS 69, the parents of the parents of SMITH & WILLIAM'S REUBEN, CARVER´S MISS ROONIE (HYDE & CAPALDI) (This female, is the mother of “Mr. Ronnie”), BOYD'S MAURICE, HYDE'S SAMMY, COX' STARCH, DOC. H'S GEORGIA BEAUTY, JACKSON'S PIKE, etc. etc.
Carver´s “Satch”, generate with other females very good dogs, like for example: CARVER'S PRINCE, CARVER'S MIDNIGHT COWGIRL, DIAMOND JIM'S LUTHER (HYDE'S), WILLIAMS' PALADIN, WOOD'S STORMY, R.SORRELLS PEACHES, CARVER'S PRINCE, etc. etc.
Of equal way, Carver "Bloody Sunday" generate with others males very good APBT, like for example; ; CARVER'S SUE, HYDE'S LEROY, HARGROVE'S SPANKY, HYDE'S SAMMY, J.CRENSHAW'S BEAU, WOOD'S BLACE, MEADOW'S MR BILLY SUNDAY, WOOD'S TONNY, etc. etc.

The grandmother of “Mr. Ronnie”, Carver´s "Bloody Sunday", was the mother of ABERNATHY'S “MOLLY”, and this as well, was the mother of the well known “CHINAMAN”, however the mother of “Chinaman” and the mother of “Mr. Ronnie” are sisters of the same mother, “Bloody Sunday”. “Bloody Sunday” is sister of the same mother of Carver´s “Rastus”.
“Miss Spike” was the mother of magnificent APBT, like for example; STEINBERG'S DIAMOND (CARVER), COOPER'S HONEY, DANIEL´S POKER (CARVER), HUNTER´S TANA (CARVER), HOOTEN´S SNAKE (CARVER) (Father of the WOOD SNOOTY (CARVER)), ESTUDIANTE´S CHINA (CARVER), HARGROVE'S AMOS (CARVER), CARVER'S MEANIE (HYDE'S) (Grand grand mother of Mr. Ronnie).

“Miss Spike”, when was stud up with CARVER´S “PISTOL”, also was the mother of the exceptional brothers of the same litter; CARVER'S “NEL” (BROWN), CARVER'S FOX (PETRONELLI), CARVER'S BOOMERANG (DAVIS) and CARVER'S MISSY (ART), the four are breeding of Maurice Carver.

ART´S MISSY, BOOMERANG, and CARVER'S MEANIE (HYDE'S) (Grand grand mother of Mr. Ronnie), were the columns of the raising of Maurice Carver, more important that they rose of the foundations of CARVER'S "MISS SPIKE".

Maurice Carver with Art´s “Missy”
Simply sensational the reproductive repertoire of Art´s Missy, like her brothers, Boomerang and Carver´s Meanie (Great-grand mother of “Mr. Ronnie”) also were it.
CARVER'S IRONHEAD (Grand grand father of “Mr. Ronnie”), and WALLING'S BULLYSON (Grand grand father of “Mr. Ronnie”), were the two best reproducers of Maurice Carver and the two had descendants with MISS SPIKE. The descendants of these litters, to purify the quality of the dogs of Maurice Carver in great way, like to the being crossed others magnify females of M. Carver. These two APBT, were the favorites or preffer stud dogs of “The Silver Fox” within his Yard.
Carver´s “Ironhead”. This animal was one the best APBT of all the times and the same like reproducer. The favourite of Maurice and many fanciers.
Maurice Carver, for his experience like breeder, he had a great ability or a sixth sense, as we want to call it, to connect meticulously and with much success of a way very suitably and with much compatibility to the reproducers of the future litters, choosing them meticulously to purify the quality of his dogs.

For to put an example of we are saying previously, "Bullyson" when he was in the yard of Boby Hall, was stud with many females and giving like result “regular” dogs. Nevertheless, when "Bullyson" was in the Yard of Maurice Carver, the 90% of his descendants, left outside the normal thing in which to quality we talked about and this had simply for the knowledge that Maurice Carver had like teacher dogman.

Some of the better sons of "BULLYSON" being in the Yard of Maurice Carver were; Carver´s “Bloody Sunday”(Hyde), Carver´s “Midnight Cowboy” (Davis), Carver´s “Honeybunch” (Crenshaw), Carver´s “Chivo” (Davis), etc. etc.
In order to make honor to the truth, I have to say that one of the keys of the success of Maurice Carver like breeder, was based in his partner and wife, Pat Carver and without her contribution, the Maurice´s Yard had simultaneously not been what was.

Pat Carver was an expert in all the senses with the American Pit Bull Terrier and shared together her husband during many years, the work in the best kennel or yard of all the times of this breed dog. Pat Carver made the saying good that “Behind a great man, there a great woman”.

In this rare picture, we can observe in the left part to Pat and Maurice Carver, visiting to his very good Mexican friends; Jesus Araiza, Ramiro Morales, Gustavo Araiza, Miguel Hinojosa handling to Hercules, etc.

Although the colour of the hair in this breed dog is something that does not have any importance, peculiarly the colours that have many dogs descending of the genetic of Carver in Villa Liberty kennel, expose their genetic roots, since those patched white and black and white and brown colors, are those that presented/displayed as well many of the best and mythical dogs of Maurice Carver and that appear like ascending near and quite direct of the APBT of the genetic Carver in Villa Liberty kennel, like for example; CARVER “BLOODY SUNDAY” (HYDE), CARVER'S “MISS SPIKE”, “CARVER'S ONE EYE”, “ART'S MISSY” (CARVER), CARVER'S STOMPANATO, CARVER'S DIAMOND, CARVER´S (TRENT & SEXTON) JERRY, and much more.
Maurice Carver and Carver´s “Stompanato”.
The same happens with the colour eyes, something that either it does not have no relevance and importance in this breed dog, since all the colours are admitted in the Official standard of the breed dog and the one that have the colour of eyes of one or another colour, does not go to contribute to no quality or virtue to him to the animal at issue. Peculiarly, the colors of eyes that present/display some dogs descending of the Carver genetics in Villa liberty kennel, expose their genetic roots again, since the blue color of the eyes or different eyes (a blue eye and another one brown in the same dog), were the colors that presented/displayed some of the dogs of Maurice Carver, like for example:
CARVER'S JOHNNY BLUE EYES, CARVER'S ONE EYE (this one, had the eyes of different colour), BANCROFT'S BLUE EYES, BLUE EYES, COOPER'S BLUE EYE, GONZALEZ' OJO AZUL (AKA) TEXAS EXPRESS' OJO AZUL, HARRIS' SNOOTY BLUE EYES, WHITLEYS BONNIE BLUE EYES, PR STROUD'S BLUE EYES, NIEVE CON LOS OJOS AZULES, C.A.K'S GINA BLUE EYES, VILLA LIBERTY´S “BLUE EYE”, (this one, have the eyes of different colour), VILLA LIBERTY´S “CARVER 2”, etc. etc.
Maurice Carver with Mike Kerns' "MICKEY".
All this of the colours of the mantle (hair) or the colours of the eyes in the breed dog American Pit Bull Terrier, since we have said (stressed) previously does not have no importance or relevance, but is a at least peculiar data, since after so many years ago of the death of the dogs of Maurice Carver, nowadays and in the Villa Liberty kennel, his APBT are exactly equal to which had Maurice Carver in his yard. It is as if it had been backed down in the time and some APBT directly of the Maurice Carver´s Yard had been acquired and us we had brought them to the times of the present time.
Villa Liberty kennels made the import to Spain of the Genetic PURE of the Maurice Carver´s dogs, bringing to the APBT; “MR. RONNIE” (Satch X Bloody Sunday), “RED DIBO” (Midnight Cowboy X Hand´s Candy), since Chicago – USA, and to “TOP SECRET” (Stompanato X Boomerang) since Texas – USA, because this so important genetic within this breed dog and concretely the genetic or blood of the Maurice Carver dogs, was practically missing.
In Villa Liberty kennels, we continued the work developed by the Legend “CARVER” and we try to maintain and to conserve alive the essence of this genetic everything what we pruned and by the greater number of years that are possible to us, to PURIFY it day to day, since we understand that this genetic or blood is PATRIMONY and HERITAGE of the breed dog American Pit Bull Terrier and it would not have to disappear.
The best dogs of Floyd Boudreaux and the best genetic combinations within of his breeding during last the 35 years with this breed dog, come from the dogs of his friend Maurice Carver, specially from CARVER´S “MIDNIGHT COWBOY” (DAVIS),
Maurice Carver was born in November of 1916 in Texas,
Maurice Carver worked for the army USA like Marine, in where in just a short time and thanks to his charisma, was respected by his companions. He was not walked with roundups to say the things and what felt, he was sincere, direct and sharp, something that brought many enemies to him and envy in the side of the dogs.
Maurice contracted marriage with Pat Carver and with the work and dedication of both, they were able to elevate the quality of the dogs of his yard, to the best that has never existed in the history of this breed dog.

The genetic legacy that give us Maurice Carver to the fans of the American Pit Bull Terrier was impressive, having selected, worked and specially PURIFIED in the course of his life, the best genetics combinations of this breed dog and that he self created since Tudor´s “Dibo”.
J. Crawford and Maurice Carver in the last period of Maurice´s life.
These genetics combinations that created Maurice, are the already distant foundations of most of the best genetics of this breed dog of nowadays. The great disadvantage that we were in the times of the present time, with respect to this subject, is to contemplate the very fast thing that spends the time and with the passage of this, to see as the genetic legacy disappears that he offer to us the old “Silver Fox”, since very few breeders have known to conserve and much less to improve.
The Old “Silver Fox”.
Maurice Carver was the breeder which better take advantage of the genetic Tudor´s "Dibo", to elaborate his own genetic ramifications with quite considerable genetic load of “Dibo”.
When Maurice Carver passed away some people began with detractive critical with influences within of the APBT, that rather corresponded like opportunistic personages, cowardly and envious.
After the death of Maurice Carver and when no longer being able to defend himself, it is the reason to these undesirable ones to distort same things of events related to the APBT and passed throughout his life, with the purpose of calling the attention of which they shared time with Maurice Carver and of that so bastard and cowardly way, to try to obtain some privileges on the part of the deceived fans, like for example; That one considers to them in the present times and to sell better his dogs, books, or simply by protagonism.

Even, these personages before the death of Maurice Carver, approached doing to think to him that they were friends, for this way obtaining a valuable information of the experiences of the Old “Silver Fox” with the APBT, for later to making pass that information like theirs, but in aim.............. Must have of everything in this life.
Rest In Peace
The Silver Fox
Maurice Carver very young.
My humble personal opinion and summarizing, is that Maurice Carver was the best breeder of all old and modern times. I believe to Maurice Carver and in special I believe in his dogs and I do not believe in those people who take advantage of the death of others, for own benefit.
