Dick was bred in 1937 by Henry D. Bixby of Lalesite, NY and was owned by Elizabeth V.C. Bixby. He was recorded as a red dog. With a higher inbreeding coefficient for the time of 17.8%, he had 3 littermates (one of which completed its championship) but no full siblings. None of the 4 half siblings on his sire's side completed their title, nor did the 7 half siblings on his dam's side. Oddly enough, Dick was never bred.
