In 1954 Clifford bred Ch.X-Pert Black Betsy to X-Pert Brindle Boomer. They produced very nice litter of black & brindle puppies. X-Pert Sally was born there. Ed Ringold bought X-Pert Sally and later cross her into his Gallant line. Gallan't Tinker Bell was from this cross. So, here is Gallan't Tinker Bell pedigree.
Here is pedigree of CH Ruffian Don's Rebel Of Har-Wyn, who won National Specialty in 1969. X-Pert Sally, as well as X-Pert Chismera are there. CH Ruffian Don's Rebel Of Har-Wyn was owned by Dr.Thomas Mount, friend of Ed Ringold. Michele Leathers handled Rebel his entire show career. Rebel is important for Gallant bloodlines.

Gallant line was built on Gallant Ruff, who was pure Ruffian dog, bred by William Whitaker. Whitaker was close to Clayton Harriman, founder of the Ruffian line. This line was built on dogs of mostly Tudor's Henry bloods. Here is CH The Ruffian pedigree. Interesting thing that Garm D dog and Bennet's Black Mary were from Tudor's King x Rumpus Beauty breeding. Dam of the X-Pert foundation dog X-Pert Torpedo, VanVliet's Great Labelle was from Tudor's King x Hart's Rumpus Bonnie. Now, Rumpus Beauty and Hart's Rumpus Bonnie were littersisters! So, it's one more fact to understand how closely related X-Pert and Ruffian lines are.
Ruffian bloodline was started from Ch.The Ruffian and Fred Schroeder bred bitch named Schroeder's Muggins, also known as Calamity Anne. Schroeder line was mostly Colby with some Smith's. And Colby's in Schroeder's pedigree were mostly old Gas House strain.
So, Ormsby decided to cross X-Pert and Ruffian blood. Clifford used Lloyd's Dappy Girl, blue-brindle Ruffian bitch for that outcross. Color confirms her strong Tudor's Henry background. She was daughter of Ringold's Ch.Gallant's Ruff. She produced X-Pert Champer Boy II and Ch.X-Pert Gallant Lady. Here is their pedigree.
There was very interesting breeding done by Fred Wild in 1957. He bred his heavybred Pack-A-Wow bitch, Wild's Boots to Ch.X-Pert Brindle Biff. Wild's Boots was also known as Florida Fourposter. She was fawn-brindle bitch by Gazan and out of Dan's Rebel. Gazan was by Colby's Pat and out of Dan's Rebel. So, Wild's Boots was inbred II-I on Dan's Rebel. Rebel himself was inbred I-II on Ben's Dan. Ben's Dan was litterbrother to Black Satan (Ch.X-Pert Pack-A-Wow x Sandy's Topsy). I wrote about Black Satan bitch before, if you remember she was dam of Tudor's Nigger. So, here is Wild's Boots pedigree.
So, Fred Wild recieved very nice litter from breeding his Wild's Boots to Ch.X-Pert Brindle Biff. 2 pups from this litter went to friends of Wilfred Brandon and one female pup was sent to Cliff Ormsby as stud fee pup. Pete Sparks bought this pup from Cliff and named Sparks' Spotty. So, here is Spotty's pedigree.
Ormsbys bred Ch.X-Pert Gallant Lady to X-Pert Red Rascal. X-Pert Red Midge and X-Pert Rowdy Rascal were born there. Later Rowdy was crossed by Peggy Harper into her Ruffian stock. Clifford used X-Pert Red Midge for his breeding program. Here is their pedigree.
Dr.Roll bred X-Pert Red Chaos (daughter of CH X-Pert Mike) to CH X-Pert Gerente to produce CH X-Pert Chico Matador, who took Best Of Winners at 1960 National Specialty.
There were some breedings of CH Roll's Comanchera to INT CH Roll's One Eyed Jack done by Dr.Roll in 1966-1970 years. In 1966 this pair gave CH Humes Texas Jack, that took Best Of Winners at National Specialty in 1969 and became foundation dog of Mari-Don kennels. In 1967 they gave CH Heritage Roll's Summer Ipo and in 1970 - Mister Buster.
Here is their pedigree.
