The Bad Newz Kennels dog fighting investigation began in April 2007 with a search of property in Surry County, Virginia, owned by Michael Vick

Other dogs were kept in cages, including French bulldogs, pugs, dachshunds and a chihuahua.

O'Keeffe claimed he kept the dogs for pig hunting, but messages on his mobile phone revealed he trained his "monster" dogs for the fighting ring.

He trained his dogs by pitting them against each other in fights at Mount Norma Station.

The runts of the litters never made it that far.

"Have thrown the last few litters in the deep end, cull them as they quit," He wrote.

'I don't need every dog out of the litter."

When O'Keeffe and another breeder discussed training, he admitted his dogs at times turned on him.

"Hard to do on your own, sink or swim, monsters will shine. ...Ok wife might have to help."

The most savage dogs were sent around the country, with fights staged in Perth, Sydney and Canberra.

"I make my own matches at home and the winner gets to see the country."

Inspectors also seized DVDs of dog fights, photographs, and information on organised dog fighting.

O'Keeffe pleaded guilty in Richmond Magistrates Court on Wednesday to illegal dog fighting and was jailed for six months and banned from owning dogs for life.

He will be eligible for parole after two months.
