Dogo Argentino Dog Breed Puppy Ads
AKA: Dogo Argentino or Argentinian Mastiff
Breed Group: Working Group Height Male: 24-27 in. (62-68 cm)
Breed Size: Large Height Female: 24-27 in. (62-68 cm)

Physically, the Dogo gives an overall impression of great power. He is heavy-boned and very muscular, with a massive head, strong neck and deep, broad body. The short, thick coat is always white so as not to absorb heat. The Dogo is alert, determined, fearless, intelligent and versatile.

Dogos are known for being extremely loyal and affectionate with their families and crave attention from their owners. They are excessively tolerant of children due to their high pain tolerance, derived from selective breeding to be a big game hunter. They are protective of what they perceive as their territory and will guard it against any intruder. They get along with other dogs as long as they have been properly socialized, but will usually not tolerate another dog trying to assert dominance over them and might not coexist peacefully with another dominant breed of dog. However, dog aggression is not desirable in the Dogo Argentino, as it is at odds with its intended purpose as a pack hunter.

Dogo Argentinos are accomplished big-game hunters, and are still widely used today in a variety of ways from tracking, search and rescue, Schutzhund training, general police work including narcotics detection, military, and family dog. They are even occasionally used as guide dogs, or as service animals.

The Argentine Dogo (also known as the Dogo Argentino or Argentinean Mastiff) was first developed in the mid-1920s in Argentina and is the only internationally recognized dog breed from Argentina. The breed was bred as a fearless hunter capable of hunting big game, such as boar and mountain lion.
The Dogo Argentino is generally a healthy breed; however, like all breeds, certain genetic disorders may be of concern.
