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.

Does your dog bark, howl, and cry whenever you leave the house? Separation anxiety is extreme anxiety experienced by your dog when you are away from him.
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.

New dog owners, much like new parents, often have trouble deciding when it is necessary to seek medical attention for their dog or new puppy. The most basic rule of thumb is, if your dog is displaying behavior uncharacteristic of his normal actions, call the Vet. When is it time to see the Vet?
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. Teaching your dog to sit, lie down, and stay is vital to the training of your new puppy. There are several accepted methods of house training your new Argentine Dogo puppy. However, if you’re looking for not just a housebreaking method, but are also interested in adapting your dog to a safe and confined environment for various safety and comfort reasons, crate training is for you.
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. Socialization is one of the single most important things you can do for your puppy. You can help your pup learn to be friendly by properly socializing him/her to new people, places, and experiences.
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. Even the most responsible puppy owner makes mistakes. Read up on these 15 common dog owner mistakes. Sometimes it just takes changing your own behavior to make your dog a little angel.

How many puppies does a female Argentine Dogo have?

The average litter size of a Dogo Argentino is between 6 - 8 puppies, but there can be more and there can be less. Having a female x-rayed at between day 55 - 58 will give the breeder an idea of the size, placement and number of puppies.

My Dogo puppy was supposedly a Dogo mix, but he really looks purebred the older he is getting. Migo is white with a butterfly pink nose and oddly enough a half tail. But everything else about him looks purebred.

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?

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?

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.

I have a 3-year-old Dogo female, and recently she has several sores on top of her head that bled and have scabs now. Do you know what it could be?

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.
