El Dogo Argentino, the Argentino dog, the Argentine Mastiff, or the just plain “bulldog of Argentina”, this Dogo Argentino cachorro goes by many names. But whether you are speaking in English or Spanish, this Dogo Argentino amounts to the same thing, a quality pet that has been bred for success!
And once you get your hands on your very own Dogo Argentino puppy, you will realize just how special this breed really is. So special that it often carries a hefty price tag and a unique range of considerations in care.
But regardless of the price, once you see a Dogo Argentino for sale you can’t resist picking one up! Because this Argentinean dog is a real sweetheart and is so family-friendly, if the methods in the guide are followed … this will be certainly the case.
But, if you ever saw the Dogo Argentino fight, you would realize that this dog was created for much more than cuddling on the couch! Because even though this pooch is mucho people friendly, when push comes to shove they can also be incredibly fierce. They also are extremely loyal. If you ever find yourself in need of some Dogo intervention, due to its tenacity and courage, you won’t have to wait long for your Dogo Argentino to come to the rescue!
This Argentino will be there in a hurry! Because the Dogo breed was designed to have a very particular temperament; one that makes these Dogo puppies ideal for hunting and yet incredibly adept in the human social environment. These prissy perros (dogs) are always a showstopper to behold, but they do require the proper upbringing!
The dog breed, which came to be known as Dogo Argentino, was the brainchild of Dr. Antonio Nores Martinez. In 1928, the good doctor began experimenting with different breeds of Argentine fighting dogs. The region has a long and dynamic history of raising canine fighters that date all the way back to the colonial period.
Dr. Martinez was a surgeon living in Cordoba, Argentina, where the typical “Cordoba Fighting Dog” was already very tough and strong, but tended to be a bit anti-social, not having the charisma and depth of more socialized hunting dogs that can work in a group. The good Doctor loved the fighting spirit of these old fighting dogs of Argentina, but he sought to infuse this fighting spirit with the social skills of other friendlier breeds including a quiet loyalty that made the animal a cooperative companion.
This sought-after socialization was the main impetus to create the Dogo Argentino hunting dog. It was in an effort to breed this anti-social behavior and loner tendencies out of the dog; Antonio began crossbreeding different breeds of Mastiff, English Bulldog and Bull Terrier together.
The end result of all of this experimentation was a much more palatable companion, an animal that stands in stark contrast with the unstoppable belligerence of its original ancestor the Cordoba Fighting Dog. This particular breed was designed to deliver much more than the reckless aggression of its predecessor. In a testament to this carefully engineered species, it’s interesting to note that (partly because of these dangerous traits) the Cordoba Fighting Dog is now extinct, while the Dogo Argentino lives on successfully and is very desired by dog lovers.
Dr. Antonio wanted to create a dog with a unique set of qualities, to do so he experimented with inter-breeding of the following breeds in the 1920s:
The Cordoba Fighting Dog (as already mentioned)
The Bull Terrier
The Great Pyrenees Mastiff
The Great Dane
The Irish Wolf Hound
Not all the results were favorable. But, after a few years, Dr. Martinez found candidates who met the behavioral qualities he sought after.
The Dogo Argentino (also known as the Argentinian Mastiff) has some truly noble qualities. These dogs are incredibly loyal and protective of their owners, displaying an incredible level of tenacity and courage when it comes to safeguarding people and property. There is no other dog that I would rather have in my corner if someone ever broke into my house.
Although much of the dog’s ferociousness has been tempered, it is still a strong dog that’s quite capable of putting up a fight when it is necessary for them to do so. And, if you are looking for a Dogo Argentino cazando, a dog that can catch vermin, these guys won’t disappoint in that area either.
For its size the Dogo is amazingly light on its feet, as quick as a cat, these dogs can ferret out rats, mice or just about any other nuisance that comes your way. As you can see, Dr. Antonio truly did a truly great service in creating a perfect balance of fighting dog and lovable puppy. Yes, his work has resulted in the Argentine Mastiff which began to rise rapidly in popularity within Argentina and worldwide.
As mentioned, because of the personality types at play from its originating breeds, the Dogo Argentino temperament is very unique. Everything about this dog is special, and its own unique perspective and attitude are no different. So, prior to committing yourself to your own Dogo Argentino and visiting breeders, you should take the time to get yourself acquainted with exactly what this dog is and what it has to offer.
