My name is John Spronck and I live in the south of Holland together with my wife Ingrid and her son Angelo.
I came into the breed in 1994. I searched a long time for the type of dog I love. I visited a lot of dog shows and spoke with a lot of breeders to learn as much as possible about the breed.
Then I came in contact with the owners of the kennel 'From The Klondike Diggers" I imported in September 1995 our first Amstaff male. His name was Buchanan Uncle Samís Bandit (CH.Cheek's Sir Doomis Walker & CH Benmars Victory Lane) Breeder Chris Buchanan & Benny Cheek. I called him Bowie.
Bowie started his career very well. On his first dog show, European dog show, he took third place Youth Class. After that he wins several times Best of Breed. He wins in 1997 the C.E.T.S and gets Best of Breed. He finished as Dutch and International Champion.
In August 1996 I bought our second dog, a female Patriot's Uncle Sam Dolly (CH. Benmars Sharp Shooter & Roadhouse's Boogie of Benmars) Breeder John T Willit.
In January 1998 I got our third dog CH. Eden From The Klondike Diggers (Patty).
Patty was our first choice Puppy out of Stud dog CH.Buchanan Uncle Samís Bandit. He was bred to Benmars Uncle Samís Sugar Lee. She is a sister of Benmars Macho of Roadhouse. Patty had a great show career. She got a lot Best of Breed or Best of Opposite Sex. She got 2 Best in Show, 2 times 1st, 3 times 2nd in terrier group. Patty had finished Belgium, German, Luxembourg and International CHAMPION
In July 2002 I met Randy and Tammy Price TKO kennel Ohio. I spoke about the breed because I was looking for a male to bred Patty and they had TKO Rapid Roy. September 2002 I flew to Ohio to bred Patty with Roy. I had a very nice time there and learned a lot of the breed. They got me lots information about dogs and let me saw some videos from the National Speciality's and saw a lot of dog that's behind my dogs. I had a great time there. I thank Randy & Tammy for taking care of me and my Dog.
special thanks to:
Chris & Marsha Buchanan, Benny & Marcella Cheek, John & Mary-an Willit, Randy & Tammy Price and all the Judges who appreciate the quality of our dogs. In June 2005 I met Ingrid and Angelo. They were instantly in love with my dogs. In 2007 we moved to a bigger house because of the dogs. They can run and play in our garden as much as they want.
