"Uncle Romeo" with his newest nephew.
This set is my Dogo pups. These guys are very people and dog friendly and are a pleasure to be around.
The breed is called "El Dogo Argentino" . . . they are a *Big Game Hound* - that originated in South America in the 1920s and are still considered a "rare breed" here in the states. There were 10 breeds used to create the Dogo:
They started with the Fighting Dog of Cordoba, to which they added blood from the Pointer to give him a keen sense of smell which would be essential for the hunt. The Boxer added vivacity and gentleness; the Great Dane it's size; the Bull Terrier, fearlessness; the Bulldog gave it an ample chest and boldness; the Irish Wolfhound brought it's instinct as a hunter of wild game; the Dogue de Bordeaux contributed it's powerful jaws; the Great Pyrenees it's white coat and finally the Spanish Mastiff gave it's quota of power.
