Spike came into this world through the co-operation of Atlas B. & Cecil M. & represented payment for the breeding of Snooty to M's Black Betty. By showing gameness & ability in his schooling days, he avoided ending up in the sand pile where A.B. sends dogs that don't make the grade.
At the age of 25 months, Spike met Spruill's Pete in his 1st contract match. Petie, of Boomerang & Cowboy breeding, took severe damage to the chest from the beginning. Even though he fought w/ tremendous heart, Petie was physically unable to make his 2nd scratch at 40 minutes.
