" No one really knows when these dogs first came to this country, but the great breeder William J. Lightner once told me that his grandfather raised them before the Civil War. It is quite possible that they were even here during the Revolutionary War. In any case, it is clear that dogs of this breed came from various parts of Europe, specifically Spain and Sicily. But little is known about these earliest importation's, because nothing was written about them.. People like Lightner, McClintock, Menefee and Wallace, to mention just a few. "Regardless of one's historical perspective, these old amber eyed, rednosed, red-toe-nailed, red coated dogs represent some of the most significant pit bull history and tradition that stands on four legs today."

Welcome to Southern Inferno Kennels. We are a small kennel, specializing in the OFRN bloodline and Old Family crosses; Hemphill/Wilder, OFRN X KGB, and OFRN X Chavis. OFRN (Old Family Rednose) is a strain of APBT originating in
At Southern Inferno, our dogs are first and foremost family pets, which live in our home with us. We are very proud of our dogs and strive to promote a good image of American Pitbull Terrier. I encourage all APBT owners to be active with their dogs and show the world how great these dogs really are. Remember it is not the breed, but the owner that defines the dog.
Our goal at Southern Inferno Kennels is to produce the all around package; a dog that can do as well in the show ring as it can working or doing obedience. I have done endless hours of research and searched the country to find what I believe to be the best possible representatives of the breed to incorporate in my breeding program. We are very proud to say that we breed for dogs with correct conformation and in no way breed for size. The original APBT's ranged in size from 30 to 65 pounds; we feel that it is acceptable for a dog to exceed this standard as long as he/she retains correct conformation and physical capabilities. Working ability however comes before all else; Form follows Function.
What you can expect from a Southern Inferno Kennels APBT is a driven, athletic, intelligent, beautiful and extremely loyal companion whom will excel at whatever task he or she is asked to perform. These are the traits that drew me to this breed years ago and thus are what I aim to maintain. Southern Inferno dogs are not for everyone, nor will I place one of our pups with just anyone. The same traits that make this breed the greatest on earth, can also be exploited when placed in the wrong hands, thus we are very selective as to whom we will place our pups with. Owning this breed is a lot of work. They are extremely active dogs and require more attention then most breeds. Early socialization, constant mental and physical stimulation, and a loving owner are essential to creating a happy and well balanced canine companion. If you are interested in a Southern Inferno pup and can meet these requirements, then please fill out a Puppy Application or if you are active in showing, weight pull, obedience, or other dog sports then fill out our Show/Working Application.
No dogs are bred or sold for illegal purposes. I will not have these amazing animals sacrificed in the pit. The days of dog fighting are long gone and it is important for the survival of this breed we pursue other means of proving these dogs. Shows, Weight Pull, Hog Hunting, Obedience, and Therapy work are the proving grounds for the modern day American Pitbull Terrier.
