By Dogbreeds

The dogo argentino was formerly used in fights due to its highly dominant character. It was always mentioned that this canine rarely admits feeling pain, and that even when fighting this dog can combat until dying if that is necessary.

From the very beginning, the creator of this breed, Antonio Nores, had the intentions to create a new type of canine that would be special to hunt pumas. In addition, he wanted it to be medium size that could go through the mountains with ease and freedom. Regarding the color of the animal, he wanted it to be white so that it would be simpler to find it in the mountain zones of Argentina. It was then after he mixed different dog-breeds like boxers, pointers, german shepherds, mastins, bull terriers, burdeos-dogs and wolfhounds that he achieved the creation of the perfect standard of the dogo argentino dog with impressive power. A so powerful animal that its only presence establishes respect.
