exported from Italy to US (Roll In)

1956 American Champion

ROM sire of 16 Champions (Dec86)

Our kennel started out with the name of Rowland's. Then we formed a partnership with Sam and Freda Chandler in 1957. This was when the kennel name was known as the famous Roll In and C Kennels. When our partnership with the Chandlers was dissolved, or kennel name became Roll In.
Rudy Robinson imported a whole litter from the del Pirata Nero Kennels of Italy. From this litter we acquired the famous Ch Tazir III de Pirata Nero, known to us as Ricky. We had a hard time finishing his championship as he was much too possessive of my wife and was known to have nipped more than one judge who came too close to her. But Ricky was one of the great ones of the breed in the United States. In fact, he changed the breed. He incorporated a squareness and compactness with correct gait and coat type to many of his famous offspring. BSD Hndbk VolI p107&108

In 1955 Ted & Freda Rowland aquired Tazir III del Pirata Nero from Rudy Robinson (Candide Kennel). "Ricky", as he was called, passed on squareness, small ears, and beautiful straight coats to his progeny, traits which were needed at that time. He was a great asset to Roll In Kennels. BS Turnquist p79

(Note: The litter by Zordoff out of Sjla del Pirata Nero, was imported to the United States in 1954 and included Tzair III del Pirata Nero and Liza del Pirata Nero, Handbook, p188 & p159)
About this time, the kennel of Pirata Nero ceased its activity.
