Corvino Red Devil Pit Bull Bloodline
Present-day red devil Pit Bull come in varying shades of red and red with white markings. These dogs comes from Joe Corvino’s bloodline, which was once known as the Old Family Red Nose American Pit Bull Terrier.
Joe Corvino bred true champions and developed a beautiful, healthy bloodline.
In the late 1920s, Corvino began breeding pit bulls from five different bloodlines- Tudor, Shipley, Feely, and an Armitage/Tonn mix. His attempt was to create a new bloodline that became highly sought after for working dogs, show-quality animals, and personal pets.
‘Cunningham’s Fly” (Fly of Panama) and ‘Corvino’s Gimp’ are two dogs most commonly seen in Corvino pedigrees. These old Corvino pit bulls are some of what Tudor’s Dibo dates back to, and most modern dogs come from Dibo.
Corvino died in 1963, but his line continued pure until 1975.
Present-day red Pit Bulls may have Corvino blood in their pedigree, but you won’t find a pure Corvino.
