The name Teddy Bear comes from former United States President Theodore Roosevelt, whose nickname was "Teddy". The name originated from an incident on a bear hunting trip in Mississippi in November 1902, to which Roosevelt was invited by Mississippi Governor Andrew H. Longino. There were several other hunters competing, and most of them had already killed an animal. A suite of Roosevelt's attendants, led by Holt Collier, cornered, clubbed, and tied an American Black Bear to a willow tree after a long exhausting chase with hounds. They called Roosevelt to the site and suggested that he should shoot it.

In early 2001, Vick and two associates – later joined by a third agreed to start sponsoring pit bull terriers in dogfighting Competitions. In late June 2001, Vick paid about $34,000 for property at 1915 Moonlight Road in Smithfield, Va., to serve as the operations training facility and headquarters.
