Bert Sorrells is accredited to have developed one of the most proven bloodlines of APBTs in existence today, with the help of behind the scenes conditioner, handler, and breeder Madison Parker. The purpose of this article is to acknowledge the success of this bloodline and to explain a little about its history.
Bert gained much of his knowledge from the gamedogs dogs he acquired, his and others' successes, and from the "Old Timers" in the game.
Of the “Old Timers,” Bert deeply respected and befriended Earl Tudor, whose dog “Tudor’s Goldie,” a proven Champion "pitbull" producer of old, is the foundation of Sorrells Champion Pit Bull Terriers. The Sorrells family of Pitbull Terriers achieved respect and Championships amongst Bert’s peers. Among those peers are well respected great dogmen such as Earl Tudor, Ralph Greenwood, whom he also considered a close and respected friend, Bert Clouse, Floyd Boudreaux, Howard Heinzl, Colby, Clyde Mason, Joe Corvino, Al Brown and Maurice Carver to name a few.
Bert Sorrells was inducted by the American Dog Breeders Association (ADBA) into the Dogman Hall of Fame in 1992. He was influential in the formation of the American Dog Breeders Association Conformation and Pedigree Program as it is known today, aiding his close, long-time friend, Ralph Greenwood, in the preservation and protection of the American Pit Bull Terrier Dog breed. Bert Sorrells was one of the 1st American Dog Breeders Association judges, and has been judging American Pit Bull Terriers around the world ever since. His extensive research and study, along with his hard work, sacrifices, perseverance and dedication to the breed have made him one of the most highly respected authorities of the American Pit Bull Terrier of all time.
Bert Sorrells hard earned, dug out of the dirt experience and in-depth knowledge have resulted in a family of champion American Pitbull Terriers that have helped to shape the breed throughout the world.
