About Tosa Inu
Country of Origin, History of the breed
The Tosa often was referred
to as the "Sumo wrestler of the dog world."
It has been bred for hundreds of years in
Japan. It was developed between the period
of 1868 and 1912 by crosses with the Kochi
(a local Japanese breed) and native Shikoku
A General Description of the Dog
The Tosa is a stately, massive,
athletic, agile dog, with a broad skull, fairly
abrupt stop, and a moderately long, squared-off
muzzle. The skin at the neck forms a dewlap.
The ears are fairly small and pendant, the
eyes small, dark and almond-shaped, with a
dignified expression. The long tapering tail
is very thick at the root. The short-haired,
weather-resistant coat is dense, harsh and
comes in solid red, black, yellow, black &
tan, fawn, brindle or multi-colored.

Temperament of the Breed
The Tosa is brave, fearless, bold,
sensitive, protective, loyal, exceptionally quiet
and patient. The dog is very affectionate towards
their family members and more reserved with strangers,
but will accept newcomers if properly introduced.
Both males and females make excellent home and family
protectors and companions. Good with children, other
dogs and pets when raised with them from puppyhood.
They have a very high pain tolerance due to their
How active is the breed?
Though they can take care of most
of their average exercise demands, they need to
be taken out for walks and jogs daily. An inadequately
exercised Tosa might display behavior problems.
This very intelligent dog is eager to learn and
does remarkably well in obedience and working sports.
The Tosa needs an experienced, consistent trainer/owner.
Suitable for apartment
The Tosa will do fine in an apartment,
close to its owner, if it gets enough exercise.
It is relatively inactive indoors and a fenced,
average-sized yard will. This breed is not suitable
for kennel life and families with small children
or other dogs of the same sex, size and temperament.
An occasional brushing to remove
dead and loose hair is all that is needed to keep
the coat of this light shedder looking good. Muzzle
area should be cleaned as necessary as this breed
does tend to drool extensively. The Tosa should
be bathed only when necessary.
Prone to bloat, disorders of the
hip and elbow, eye infections.
