Originating during the 1920's, this 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, the Dogo Argentino breed became a favorite of those involved in the bloodsport of dog fighting and as a result gained negative noteriety. In 1991 the Dogo Argentino was banned in Britain under the Dangerous Dog Act. They are also banned in Australia.

This breed will do well with other pets they have been raised with. They are good with children but should never be left unsupervised.

Is the Dogo Argentino good with kids?

The Dogo Argentino is not for a first-time owner, they need an experienced dog owner and understanding of the breed. The Dogo Argentino can be just fine with children if raised with them, but all interactions need to be supervised at all times. The Dogo Argentino is a powerful dog and can easily knock a child over by accident, but because the Dogo Argentino has a very high prey drive, they can mistake a child for something fun to chase. So lots of socialization between the dog and child/children need to happen and supervision at all times.

I have a dominant and slightly aggressive 3 year old Yorkie, How will she do with a female Dogo? My Yorkie is not fixed yet, I'm considering getting her fixed since I don't think I am going to breed her. I am also wondering if spaying her will make her less aggressive towards other female dogs?

I want a Dogo Argentino but not really sure if they are legal in the state of Washington. I live in Seattle, WA. I'm 44, in great shape and single. I have a house with fenced yard and I have time for the dog. I'm a full-time student in college. Will the dog accept being around my male cat? My cat is comfortable around any dogs.
