Overview
Originating during the 1920's, the Argentino Dogo breed was developed by Dr. Antonio Nores Martinez to be a fearless big game hunter. They were also used in police and military work as well as a family guard dog and guide dog. However, Argentino Dogo's became a favorite of those involved in the bloodsport of dog fighting and as a result gained negative notoriety. In 1991 the Argentine Dogo was banned in Britain under the Dangerous Dog Act. They are also banned in Australia.
Character
With a unique coat, extremely strong jaws, and intense expression, the Argentine Dogo is a muscular breed of Mastiff proportion. This breed is highly intelligent, courageous, and mentally stable. Unprovoked aggressiveness or cowardice is considered to be a severe defect.
Temperament
The Argentine Dogo is not recommended for the first time dog owner. This breed is extremely dominant and requires a dominant owner. It is crucial that new owners find ethical and reputable breeders as a steady temperament is imperative. Argentine Dogo's are loyal and devoted to family and make excellent guardians of their home and territory. They will do well with other pets they have been raised with. They are good with children but should never be left unsupervised. The Argentine Dogo is a breed that exhibits dignity and is imposing in appearance. Potential owners need to be aware that this breed may be targeted for banning laws. In addition, insurance companies may refuse to provide homeowner policies due to the risk of legal issues.
Care
Weekly brushing is required to minimize loose and dead hair. Bathing should only be done when necessary using a mild shampoo or a shampoo formulated for white coats. Frequent nail clipping is required. The Argentine Dogo is relatively healthy, although deafness and hip dysplasia can occur.
Coat
The Argentine Dogo coat is glossy, thick, short and is soft in texture. They are constant shedders.
Training
Early intense socialization and obedience training is an absolute must. The Argentine Dogo breed is highly intelligent and training must be done with respect, love, firmness, fairness, and consistency. The Argentine Dogo responds well to reward. Unpredictable behavior can occur if training is done with harshness, kennel isolation, or a regime of tough training. They excel in agility, as guide dogs, and police work.
Activity
Argentine Dogo's thrive on athletic activity and vigorous exercise. They are not recommended for apartment living. They do best in a securely fenced yard. The Argentine Dogo's make good walking and jogging companions provided they are securely leashed and muzzled when in public.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Argentine Dogo puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

My Dogo puppy was supposedly a Dogo mix, but he really looks purebred the older he is getting. Help? Migo is white with a butterfly pink nose (mostly pink or no pigment with tan heart around it aka butterfly) and oddly enough a half tail. But everything else about him looks purebred! Please help!

Unless you are extremely concerned as to the fact that your dog is a Dogo mix or even a pure-bred, you don't need to worry. If you really want to find out if he is truly a mix or a pure-bred, then get him DNA tests. You can buy Doggy DNA tests online and at your vet. Just make sure they have the Dogo in their breed list.

How much does an Argentine Dogo cost?

1 Comment

Anonymous

The Dogo Argentino can cost between $1000.00 - $4000.00 per puppy, depending on breeder, linage, pedigree, show potential, hunting potential, ect. A reputable, responsible and quality breeder is your best bet to get a pup, young dog, or adult that is of a high quality. But there are breed rescues where you can get a pup or dog without the hefty price-tag. But being rescues, you won't know the pedigree of the dog.

Why do Argentine Dogos have white fur

1 Comment

Anonymous

The white coat of the Argentine Dogo comes from the Great Pyrenees. They bred for this trait so that the dogs would be more visible during the hunt.

It could be as simple as a skin rash, in which some hydrocortisone cream will take care of it, to as moderate as a food allergy, and you may want to try a grain-free dog food; to as bad as the start of mange or another skin parasite. A trip to the vet is none-the-less in order. It's better to be safe then sorry.

There are some Dogo Argentinos that have patches of black on them; however, a true Dogo Argentino as recognized by the American Kennel Club will have pure white fur with no black in it's fur on it's body. Black patches of fur around one eye is acceptable if the black spot does not cover more than 10% of the dog's face. Freckles in the skin are also acceptable but not desired.

In the last year and a half he has developed some horrible skin issues. He is itchy, and bites at his self, there are crusty sores all over him, and his fur is falling out. What can cause this problem?

Sarcoptic mange is a highly contagious skin disease found in dogs, caused by the Sarcoptes scabiei mite. These mites will burrow through the skin causing intense itching and irritation. The scratching that results is what causes the majority of the animal's hair to fall out. This is a treatable medical condition, but is highly contagious for other animals and humans. Pet owners are advised to keep the animal quarantined while it is being treated.

He or she (as it states female at the beginning) could be having a calcium deficiency that causes the hair to fall out and skin to be very itchy in which the dog will chew and create sores.

You can call your local Animal Control, or the like to find out if the Argentine Dogo breed is legal where you live and that of any other places you think you might be taking him/her. Do your homework very well. From the sound of your question you have lots of questions. I'm not saying you haven't already had experience with similar dogs or issues, but homework is a must with any dog that has a reputation like this one especially when it has been banned, namingly this one is so many places. Search the internet for breeders and with this also do your homework. There are places in each state/city/township that you can find out if any specific breeders have had any previous legal issues or complaints. We have and Angies list, someone needs to create a website dedicated to things just like this, dog/pet breeders, and so on, (If there isn't one already?) This too may also help in the fight against animal abuse/puppy mills and so on.

I have a 4 year old male Dogo and he is the best dog I have ever seen with kids! I have a one year old and a 4 year old and they can be pretty brutal to the poor dog sometimes but he would let them torture him and would never turn on them. Of course I t is how they are rased also but I think once they know who it is that they are supose to protect they are not going to do anything to hurt them.

My daughter was attacked by a young, male Dogo that she had lived with for over a year. He was one of three Dogos living with her at the time. The other two Dogos were neutered females. The attack could have been worse, but my daughter was lucky. Please be aware of the non-neutered male Dogo.

Are Argentine Dogo's good with other dogs?

1 Comment

Argentine Dogo's can be wonderful with other dogs. It is all in the training and social skills the owners builds with their Dogos. Spaying and neutering your pet Dogo is the best situation. Now an intact male or intact female is more of a challenge and should only be allowed with other dogs while being supervised and should have an owner with breed experience and /or knowledge of how to train and handle dominate dogs.
