The Dogo Argentino was developed in the late 1920s and became the first recognized Argentinean dog breed. It remains the only dog breed native to Argentina. They are powerful dogs that have an intimidating appearance, and their fighting history has given them a reputation for aggression. Despite this, when raised properly, they are a friendly and happy canine. They can be a faithful family companion to owners willing to spend time on training and regular exercise.


1. Dogo Argentino Overview

The Dogo Argentino has black-spotted skin covered in pure, white fur, although some have dark spots on their faces. They grow to 23-27 inches at the shoulder and weigh between 80 and 100 pounds. The dogs are high energy and are known for having a good scenting ability, which can make them easily distracted by interesting smells. Their deep chest, muscular body, and strong jaw all helped them with their original job of hunting game.
