|Dogo Argentino puppies for Sale and Brief History of Dogo Argentino. by gowaga68: 5:24pm On Sep 30, 2014|
The Dogo Argentino started out as a man’s dream. Dr. Antonio Nores Martinez wanted to create a new breed for Argentina to become an Ultimate large game hunter. His dream was not fully completed before his untimely death and his younger brother, Agustin, went on to finish what his brother set out to create. In recent years Antonio’s Grandson, Ulises D’Andrea Nores, has gone on to share this wonderful breed with the world and teach us all that this breed does not just live in the past as a functional hunter but still lives for what it was created for in our present time. We have been blessed to aquire a few special Dogos directly from Ulises born at the original breeding place in Corboda Argentina. These Dogos have all come to us from strong hunting lines and have shown to be ‘True’ Dogo Argentinos. We will strive to protect this wonderful breed and leave the current breed politics out of our program. All of our Dogos will be hunt tested as Form does follow Function however we also believe that since we were not blessed with X ray vision we will also use the high standards of OFA to fully health test our Dogos.
El Dogo Argentino was created by adding blood from 10 different breeds. Each breed was not equal parts of the final breed but each added its own strength.
1) the Fighting Dog of Cordoba, to which he added blood from
2) the Pointer to give him a keen sense of smell which would be essential for the hunt.
3) The Boxer added vivacity and gentleness;
4) the Great Dane it's size;
5) the Bull Terrier, fearlessness;
6) the Bulldog gave it an ample chest and boldness;
7) the Irish Wolfhound brought it's instinct as a hunter of wild game;
the Dogue de Bordeaux contributed it's powerful jaws;
9) the Great Pyrenees it's white coat and
10) the Spanish Mastiff gave it's quota of power.
Antonio and Agustin Nores Martinez had gathered ten Cordoban bitches as their nucleus and began bringing in the first of the contributing breeds as studs until the early offspring showed promise in the desired direction.
After a thorough and minute character study and selection, through different generations, Dr. Antonio Nores Martinez accomplished his purpose, obtaining the first family. Its strength, tenacity, sharp sense of smell and bravery make it the best dog among those used for hunting wild boars, peccaries, pumas and other country predators which can be found in the vast and heterogeneous areas of the Argentinean territory. Its harmony, balance and its excellent athletic muscles are ideal characteristics for enduring long trips in any weather conditions and then fighting fiercely with the pursued prey'.
The breed's first public appearance took place at the "Hunting Dog Show," organized by the "Buenos Aires Hunters Club" on grounds of the Argentine Rural Society, September 28, 1947.
The original standard for the breed had been published in the May 1947 issue of Diana Magazine, No. 89, pp. 28-40, Buenos Aires, Argentina
Antonio Nores Martinez passed away tragically November 2, 1956, his dream somewhat to be fulfilled. Agustin Nores Martinez became sole guardian of the breed and, under his direction, additional breeding among the original Dogo Argentino families already on the ground was undertaken during the following fifteen years. Simultaneously, most specimens were being tested in the Argentine wilderness, proving themselves as excellent big game hunters. The Dogo Argentino was fast becoming a legend.

In describing El Dogo Argentino, Antonio Nores Martinez used to say "...harmonically beautiful, within the physical parameters required to perform its duty" and "...it is the only white, short-haired dog of its size and weight, which are optimum to achieve its work."These statements are clearly indicative that, in this breed, form follows function; that color, size, and weight are basic identifying attributes, closely related to work performance. Developed to find, chase and struggle with large, dangerous predators, these canines must be endowed with superior bone and muscular mass. Their large, massive head, proudly supported by a thick but graceful neck that connects to a well balanced body, in turn supported by straight, sturdy forelegs and strong, normally-angulated hindquarters. The thick, long tail hangs naturally to the hocks and is carried in a smooth upwards curve. Faults: flaccid, overweight dogs must be severely penalized. The "White King of the Pampas" is a proud animal, conscious of its power, which make it reliable and self confident. Its striking appearance, friendly disposition and gallant behavior have earned him this name. Females are slightly smaller than males and look distinctively feminine but, without weakening substance or structure. Judges should first consider the general appearance and overall balance of El Dogo Argentino, outmost consideration given to type. Special attention should be afforded the head; then, to individual body components for anatomical correctness, followed by a thorough evaluation of gait efficiency.
Height: From 23.6 to 25.6 inches (60-65 cm.), measured at the withers. Weight: From 88.2 to 99.2 pounds (40-45 Kg.). Proportion: El Dogo Argentino is a normotype and within this class a macrotalic. Its body slightly off-square; with body depth and length of legs, equally accounting for height. Height and weight are important parameters subordinate to harmony and body balance, which are essential to high performance. Substance: Heavy-Boned, very muscular, with a massive head, strong neck and deep-broad body. Faults: Lean boned, poorly muscled, slab-sided or leggy dogs to be severely penalized.
The head of El Dogo Argentino is one of the most typical attributes of the breed. In longitudinal section it must have a concave-convex profile. The wide, massive Cranium is longitudinally and transversely convex, due to relief created by the insertion of masticatory muscles characteristic of prey dogs. On adult specimens a longitudinal groove runs from muzzle to occiput. The broad, deep Muzzle is slightly concave upwards, proper of dogs with great olfactory sense, capable of scenting high. Cranium and muzzle, must be of equal length and join at a Stop well defined but not abrupt. Occiput must be masked by the powerful neck muscles. Zygomatic arches, well separated from the skull, provide an ample cavity for comfortable insertion of the temporal muscle which, coupled with other strong masticatories, develop a positive lateral relief on cheeks and cranium. Viewed from the top, the side Planes of muzzle and cranium are near parallel. The head/neck insertion must be arched and blend with the convex skull profile. Eyes are of medium size, well separated between themselves and deeply set; dark or hazelnut color, rimmed by black or flesh-colored eyelids.(black preferred) Faults: light colored eyes. Loose eyerims. Expression must be alive, intelligent and markedly hard. At attention, longitudinal wrinkles appear on the forehead. Faults: A bland expression. Nose is strongly pigmented in black, with a slight stop at he tip and ample nostrils. Lips are closely fitting, taut, with free edges pigmented in black. A short lip is a must, to allow breathing through the back lip commissure when holding prey. Ears well on top of the head, either erect or semi-erect, of triangular shape and must always be cropped, in proportion to head size. Long ears offer an easy, painful grab in the struggle with prey. Maxillaries are very strong, wide and square, functionally fitted with large, well implanted teeth, allowing for an ample powerful bite. Faults: Narrow, rounded maxillaries to be severely penalized. Bite in scissors is preferred; level bite is acceptable. A correct occlusion is foremost. The four large canines should close perfectly when biting to hold prey. Faults: the lack of molars or premolars is acceptable but undesirable.
Neck stout, arched and graceful, of moderate length, proportioned to body and head size. Should present loose skin under the throat which wrinkles as in the Mastiff and freely slides over the superficial aponeurosis. This becomes particularly useful during struggle; contender's fang or claw only injures skin, not flesh. At the same time, dog displacement inside the skin is allowed, for it to make prey. Withers very strong, of great muscular relief. Topline is highest on the withers, smoothly sloping to the croup. On adult animals, when the withers and loin muscles are well developed, the Back arches down slightly. A longitudinal groove created by the relief of the dorsal muscles, runs along the dog's spine. Loin is short and kidney is concealed by the dorsal muscles. Croup is muscular, round, broad and gently sloping. Tail long and thick, tapers down to the hock joint and is set moderately high and smoothly into the croup. Carried curving smoothly upwards, naturally down at rest and always raised while struggling with prey, in continuous lateral movement, as when greeting master. Underline well muscled, with only a slight to moderate tuck-up of the abdomen. Thorax ample, on side view shall reach under the elbows. Chest ample and deep giving impression of big lungs. Viewed from the front, the sternum must reach under the elbows. Faults: any deviation from characteristics described herein, to be severely penalized.
Forelegs are straight, thick and vertical; set wide apart. Faults: long or thin forelegs. Narrow or fiddle front. Toeing or rolling (in or out). Shoulders tight, muscular and powerful. Shoulder blade of equal length and at right angle with humerus. Faults: Incorrect angulation. Elbows parallel to the body. Faults: in or out elbows. The Pastern strong and near vertical. Faults: Knuckled over or down in pasterns. Feet are round and compact with short, tight, close-together toes, proportioned to paw size. Toes and paws having fleshy, rough pads of dark color. Nails short, strong and white. Faults: Disproportioned, hare, flat or splay feet.
Broad, with very muscular thighs and short rear pasterns. Normally angulated. Hindlegs well apart and parallel. Strong Hocks, perpendicular to the ground, neither turned in or out. Rear feet similar to front feet but slightly smaller. Without dewclaws. Faults: Any deviation from characteristics described herein, to be severely penalized.
Short and thick with a glossy sheen. Hair is stiff, coarse and of uniform length. A field conditioned coat or working scars should never be faulted. Faults: long or wavy coat. Thin hair. COLOR Completely white.
A superb canine athlete, the massively muscled Dogo Argentino, when in motion, is a larger than life combination of barely contained explosive power and lightening speed, coupled with tremendous stamina and unbelievable agility. Viewed from the side, the powerful, smooth and effortless trot is produced by a long, sleek front reach, balanced with an immensely powerful rear drive. The topline is held level and firm. Viewed from the front or rear, the legs are parallel but converge towards centerline as speed increases. The front and rear legs remain in a straight column of support and legs on the same side move in the same plane. At a walk, he moves like a lion; with power, dignity and the supreme confidence that he is king of all he surveys. Faults: in order to function as a boar hunter or working dog, soundness is paramount. It is critical that these animals move powerfully, swiftly and effortlessly; therefore, any wobbling, twisting, choppiness, interference or other deviation that decreases power, speed or efficiency, to be severely penalized.
A magnificent hunter of wild boar and mountain lion, El Dogo Argentino has extremely strong hunting instincts, incredible determination and legendary courage. Very alert and jovial, he possesses uncanny intelligence and a keen wit. This is a very people oriented dog, who is extremely friendly and outgoing, unless given reason to be otherwise. His self-confidence makes him very trusty of humans with whom he is patient and communicative.While being incredibly obedient and willing to please, he is extremely sensitive to his handler and cannot tolerate forceful training methods. This versatile animal is capable of intense concentration, learns rapidly and retains what is learned almost indefinitely; however, it is easily bored by overwork and repetition. A good watchdog, El Dogo Argentino is calm around the house, yet he is alert and ready at a moments notice; nevertheless, this in not his primary function- he is a hunter, first and foremost. As such, it is not a barking dog, although he is endowed with a thunderous bark, modulated rhythmic and constant when he wants to call attention to something he deems important. He is a one family dog who needs close contact with its members and is unhappy when separated from them. When properly socialized with children, it is notably tolerant and gentle. He should also be socialized with domestic animals at an early age, to curtail any subsequent aggression towards them. Males and females are very stable and remarkably sweet while being tough to the core.They are more like a force of nature than a mere animal. Faults: Sluggishness, lack of intelligence, aloofness. Any hint of shyness or unprovoked aggression must be severely penalized.

Dogos thrive in a home were they are treated as part of the family but they must also know their place in the pack.
A bored lonely Dogo can and will be distructive make sure you have the time to give your new family member the attention and training they need.
Dogos do not make good first dogs, large breed experience is needed to ensure they will be handled properly.
Dogos are very smart and can be easy to train although they can be stubborn and need training sessions to be fun and positive. Having a professional trainer to help you make the right training steps is very important. Also training classes are a great place to socialize your dog with healthy dogs that are properly trained as well.
Grooming your Dogo Argentino is not that much work and if fed properly they are not big shedders. Most believe it would be hard to keep them looking fresh because Dogo Argentinos are white but this is not the case.
Brushing your Dogo Argentino with a medium stiff, then a soft brush once or twice a week is enough. We like to use brushes for horses, we have a medium stiff and also a soft or what they call a finishing brush. Brushing your Dogo not only removes dead hair but it also distributes the natural oils thoughout the coat and this helps keep allergins out.
Dogo Argentinos do not need to be given a bath that often infact it does more harm them good to bathe them as it removes the natural oils and drys out the coat. We bathe our Dogos when we are preparing for a show or competition other then that only when our pack really needs a bath will we give one. For shampoo we use Lemon Joy dish soap I know it sounds silly but after years of showing I have found that it does not strip the coat and it gets them nice and white. Where we are in San Diego our Dogos can get an outside bath year round I like using the garden hose as hot water opens up the pours and drys out the coat, after the bath I towel dry and go for a walk until dry.
Cleaning your Dogos ears can be done after the bath with Q-tips or cotton balls if you are not experienced in ear care. In between baths we use an ear cleaner about once or twice a month to keep them clean and the wax build up down.
Dogos should be given plenty of bones and things to chew on so dental care on them should be minimal. Check the teeth when you do the ears and nails and clean or scrape them if they need it.
Dogo Argentinos grow their nails very fast. Regular exercise helps keep the nails shorter but they still will need to be trimmed about once or twice a month. Large dog nail clippers are needed and make sure they are not dull. After the nails are clipped use a dremmel to smooth the rough edges. Always make sure you have kwik stop on hand and close by.
So the break down Dogo Argentinos need brushing a couple times a week. The nails teeth and ears should be checked and cared for once or twice a month. Bathe only when needed and not more then once every two or three months.
The Argentine Dogo needs to be exercised daily and to be included as a part of the family in daily activities. Although they can do well living in the city with several walks per day Ideally a yard that is fully fenced is best for the Dogo to be happy and have a place of his/her own. Where the Argentine Dogo is a working breed they are very intelligent and need their mind stimulated so a game of fetch or tug is a great way to exercise your Dogo. Remember a bored Dogo can be a destructive Dogo. Dog parks are not for the Dogo not only are they filled with diseases such as giardia, coccidea, and parvo but also internal and external parisites or even mange can be picked up from letting your Dogo near strange dogs. Dog parks are usually filled with untrained aggressive dogs and their equally aggressive unbehavied owners so my advice is it is not worth the health and safey of your Dogo to go to such a place.
The Argentine Dogo needs formal training as does any other breed of dog. Obedience training should begin at a puppy age, and brush ups should continue on throughout your Dogo's life. They are a breed that is known for their independence and strong will, often leading to dominance struggles within the household. For this reason, they require consistency and a great deal of authority, coupled with positive reinforcement.
The Argentine Dogo is known for extreme affection and loyalties for the family and they can have wonderful temperments. The Dogo is a natural guardian and will protect his/her loved ones from danger. Dogos should be very gentle and loving towards children and can be good with other family pets when properly socialized but should be supervised as should any other breed when it comes to children and smaller pets. The Argentine Dogo is not the dog for every one - and not every breeder out there breeds Dogos of this stable quality. Also we can not stress enough that your Dogo will reflect what you put into your Dogo so if you do not do your part in raising the Dogo puppy up the right way you can ruin your dog. Argentine Dogos can become dog aggressive so it is up to the new family to socialize and properly train their Dogo. A person with a great deal of consistency, authority, and persistence is the right person for this powerful dog and then the Dogo will make a wonderful companion and family guardian.
