Home of the original Canis Panther
During this time, I was training dogs with Scorpio Jones, a great dog trainer from the Chicago land area
This breed of dog is of high intelligence, extreme beauty, very agile, is suspicious of strangers, and is defensive minded. The body is heavily muscled, with a wide chest and jaw and a fine nose. Ears cropped, tails docked and rear dews removed. The Canis Panther is a natural protector, very loyal to its owner and family pack will do anything you ask of it from obedience demonstrations to getting that bad guy!
We give credit to Mr. ” Scorpio” Jones for creating this breed along with help from me (Michael Gypsy Stratten) and L.Lopez.
Going back to the 1970’s, we didn’t have access to quote “better ” dogs. I can remember my father trying to get young men that were in the military, stationed in Germany to scout dogs out for him. Dogs like the Dobe, German shepherd, Giant Schnauzer and of course the Rottweiler was gaining much popularity at the time .But the cost of buying and paying quarantine fees, then depending on these young men to ship them was more than we could afford at the time. And the breeders here, who had these excellent dogs with the working backgrounds, would not sell their dogs to us in the inner city, especially if they knew we were personal protection dog trainers. Faced with this dilemma, the only solution was to create a dog, not just a dog, and the ultimate dog for personal protection.
At this time the breed is fully developed, with established bloodlines and multi-generation pedigrees, and we don’t see the need for any changes. They are strong and breed true. The temperament of the Canis Panther is very loving and sensitive to the family, and suspicious to strangers. They bond with their family pack very strongly, therefore making great companions and great pet protectors. They are not animal aggressive and do well in homes with children & other pets when introduced properly.
Our males average 28 inches at the weathers and 130-150 #. Our females average, 27 inches tall and up to 115 #
We have not really seen any problems with these dogs, they are strong and healthy. I always suggest you ask to see the dog’s parents and a demonstration of their abilities.
Supervision/Discipline/Obedience is recommended as with any large breed of dog. At this time the only legitimate breeders are, Rock of Ages Kennel, Mr. Jones himself and Madonna Kennels.
We find ourselves very fortunate to be involved with such an animal and after many years of breeding true, want this breed to excel.
To love and protect your family and business, a suitable owner for the Canis Panther is one that is serious about their personal protection and having a dog they know will stop the bad guy, an individual who is willing to train & love this dog for many years to come.
