MOUNTAIN MAN'S CH. HOMER ROM
Ch. Homer ROM, is a well known dog from a well known dog man, Mountain Man (Lester Hughes ). Ch. Homer ROM won a total of 9, although some say 10. Not all were recorded. He never had to show much gameness as he bit through all of his opponents. When asked who was the hardest biting dogs he's ever seen, Mtn. Man replied Zebo was the hardest and Homer bit just as hard. It is evident by Homer's face that he took a lot of head chewing to get him off, which is a sign of a hard biter.
