The Dogo Argentino is a pack-hunting dog, bred for the pursuit of big-game such as wild boar and puma, and possesses the strength, intelligence and quick responsiveness of a serious athlete.The breed is a large white short-coated dog with very muscular and strong body that rarely has any markings.They are clean dogs that need little coat care.they are expected to live about 10-12 years. Breed Standard Height: From 23.6 to 25.6 inches (60 cm to 69 cm [females]) or 23.6 to 30.0 inches (60 cm to 76 cm [males]), The females may be somewhat longer in body than male dogs. The head has a broad, slightly domed skull and the muzzle is slightly higher at the nose than the stop.This breed originated in Cordoba, the central region of Argentina, at the hands of Dr. Antonio Nores Martinez.Dr. Martinez methodically crossed a total of ten breeds, including a now-extinct breed of dog from Cordoba, in pursuit of an athlete with the strength of body and character to perform difficult work, yet a friendly and amiable personality which allows him to live and work cooperatively.The Dogo is a cheerful, humble, and friendly breed; and not a hard barker. He loves his family, especially children. Dogos, like all dogs, respond well to positive, balanced obedience training, and make excellent companions for the right families, though their working prey drive and need for serious physical and mental stimulation must always be kept firmly in mind.The breeds that were used in the development were the Great Pyrenees, Irish Wolfhound, Pointer, Great Dane, Dogue De Boreaux, Boxer, Spanish Mastiff, Bulldog, Bull Terrier, and a now extinct mastiff-type breed called the Dog of Cordoba. It is in the group known as Mastiffs.Simultaneously, most specimens were being tested in the Argentine wilderness, proving themselves as excellent big game hunters. Since then, animals of the breed have been successfully used in obedience and agility trials ,therapy ,Schutzhund, French Ring Sport, weight pulling, sled racing, search and rescue and police work, even as seeing eye dogs.
