About Argentine Dogo
Country of Origin, History of the breed
and History of the Breed
The Argentine Dogo breed
was developed in the 1920s in Argentina. Dr.
Antonio Nores Martinez had given rise to this
The objective of the breeding
endeavor was to create a dog that could be
a good pack hunter and guardian and could
also be trusted with the family.
The Cordoba Fighting Dog
was chosen as the base for the breed. Upon
crossing it with Great Dane, Boxer, Spanish
Mastiff, Old English Bulldog, Bull Terrier,
Great Pyrenees, Pointer, Irish Wolfhound and
Dogue de Bordeaux the Argentine Dogo was finally

A General Description of
The Argentine Dogo is a graceful
dog having a smooth and muscular body. It is large
in size and has superior athletic abilities. The
dog has got very strong and tenacious jaws. It has
got a short, sleek, glossy, thick and white coat
that is capable of reflecting heat. It does not
have an undercoat. The length of the body of the
Argentine Dogo is slightly longer than tall. The
females are found to be somewhat longer in body
than the males.
The skull is slightly domed and
massive in size and the front of the dog’s
head is convex with a moderate stop. The muzzle
is powerful and is slightly higher at the nose than
at the stop. The skull and the muzzle are of nearly
the same length. It is customary to keep the ears
of the dogs cropped. However, they may also be allowed
to hang naturally- close to the skull. The eyes
of the dog are dark brown or dark hazel in color
and one can find an alert, intelligent and intense
expression in them. The nose is black. The Argentine
Dogo’s chest is wide and deep. This makes
it look strong. The neck skin is loose and this
offers protection during hunts. The tail is relatively
short. It is set low and is thick at the base and
tapering. It reaches to the hock. The tail is never
carried over the back of the dog. When excited,
however, the dog can swing its tail and carry it
Heights of Argentine Dogos vary
between 23.5 inches and 27 inches.
Male dogs: 24.3 inches
Female dogs: 23.5 inches.
Argentine Dogos’ weights
vary between 75 pounds and 100 pounds.
Temperament of the Breed
Argentine Dogos are affectionate
dogs. They are loyal to the members of the families
that keep them as pets. They crave for attention
and seek a firm and consistent but loving hand to
take care of them. The Dogos are playful and intelligent
creatures. They love to kiss and cuddle with the
members of the household where they are kept. They
have high pain bearing capacities and are tolerant
towards children who may playfully cause them pain.
The Dogos act protectively about
what they perceive as their territory and guard
this fearlessly. If properly socialized from young
age, especially with dogs of the same sex, then
they can get along pretty well with other dogs later.
However, that does not ensure that they will never
pick up fights with other dogs trying to assert
dominance over them.
The Argentine Dogo is exceptionally
skilled in hunting, tracking, acting as a watchdog,
guarding, police work, military work and narcotics
Better suited to outdoor
or indoor lifestyle?
Argentine Dogos can be kept in
apartments provided they get enough exercise. It
is best for the dog if the home has a yard of average
size. It is important to bear in mind that even
though the Dogo can be kept outside the home at
other times it needs to be brought indoors in case
temperatures drop below freezing point.
How active is the breed?
The Argentine Dogo needs to be
exercised regularly. A daily long walk or jog will
meet the exercising requirements of the Dogo.
The nails of Dogos grow pretty
fast. Hence these need to be frequently clipped.
The dog is an average shedder and the single white
coat is easy to care for. It does not emit doggy
Though the Argentine Dogo is generally
considered to be a healthy dog breed, yet, like
other breeds the Dogo too may be having certain
genetic disorders. Deafness is a problem especially
associated with white dogs like the Dogo. The Dogo
may be born partially or completely deaf. Thus it
is important for all Dogos to be BAER (Brainstem
Auditory Evoked Response) tested. Hip Dysplasia
is yet another disorder of Dogos that needs to be
