$500 and a Treadmill: The Story of Remy-Martin
Original Story credit: Christopher ?Bully The Kid? Bennet
The story of Remy Martin is stuff of legend. A sickly looking pup purchased for around $500 and a treadmill- eventually banked enough money to buy his own treadmill company. The term legend is thrown around too loosely in the Bully Community.
There is no debate Lowjack?s Remy-Martin is a Legend, there is no argument, no discussion except where his place is in the Hall of Fame.
A dog that was the first to start a line, the first to create a t-shirt fad, and perhaps the first Bully to be used in a divorce settlement as a legitimate earner. He was the cause of the dreams of new dog men who come into the bully game with the idea you could ?luck up? and choose the right pup from the whelping box to solidify their entire yard. He was known not only in Southern California, but the entire United States. Then as if that wasn?t enough, he set Europe and Asia on fire with his blood.
Remy made the reddish blue fawn colored coat popular. Everybody was stuck on blue until he stepped onto the scene as something different. His unique bark was a distinct characteristic that only his line possessed. He had an army behind him, down to the camouflaged fatigues and boots. The Show Scene was turned upside down when the Remyline Crew started barking for that Remy blood.
Now there are tattoos and stories about a Bully legend- a scattering of fables that place emphasis on the fire he ignited that separated him from the rest. The Controversy surrounding the amount of breeding he actually did now pales in comparison to the amount of individuals who wished they owned a Remy son or daughter. It now seems that he wasn?t bred enough so that more people could experience the heat that sparked the legend-the legend that will always be sparked by the Remy fire.
With the advent of the Razor?s Edge line of Pit bulls, a number of different strains have been born. The most popular of these strains is the Remyline bloodline. ?One dog, one line.? Like Gotti blood, Fabian Chichester created the Remy line from a single stud. ?Lowjack?s Remy Martin.? A history that can be traced back to 2003, and started with $500 and a treadmill.
Remy was the last puppy left in his litter and Fabian traded a treadmill and $500 cash for him not knowing exactly how special the little pup would be. As the pup matured, Fabian realized that Remy was one of a kind. Remy had a look about him like no other dog in around. Blue Fawn in color, thick heavy bone, a magnificent head piece and a profile stare that said; this is one serious dog!

Folks in the rapidly growing Bully community fell in love with Remy. It wasn?t long before Fabian was approached with requests to use Remy as a stud for a variety of females. In a period of just a few short years Remy became one of the most prolific bred Pitbulls in history with over 936 registered offspring. Those who are fortunate enough to have Remy in their pedigree proudly identify with the Remyline name. Remy has produced many show quality offspring, while starting the Remy movement that will never be forgotten in the Bully World. We are proud to have Gottiline, Remy and Razors Edge lines on our yard, with the one and only Remy on our peds.
Fabian set a price of $2500 for the stud fee and people began to line up for the chance to have Remy sire a litter in the hopes of creating another Remy. Thus Remyline Kennels was born. Today, a half a dozen years later, many kennels are still lining up to have a chance to add Remy blood to their profile. In a period of just a few short years Remy has become one of the most prolific bred Pit bulls in history, with over a thousand registered offspring. Those who are fortunate enough to have Remy in their pedigree proudly identify with the Remyline name.
What is interesting to note, is the way that Fabian went about building Remyline. Unlike Dave Wilson who used a number of different Pit bulls in which to develop the Razor?s Edge line; Fabian used just one dog to create Remy line. Of course, dozens have tried to imitate Fabian?s success, reasoning that if he could do it with Remyline, they could accomplish the same thing with their dog.
The fact remains: no line of PitBull of the Razor?s Edge or Gotti strain has even come close to gaining the recognition that Remyline has achieved.
