The Dogo Argentino is an amazingly powerful dog with an amazingly powerful dual personality. He is a loving guardian of his family, including children, and fierce hunter capable of taking on a wild boar. He is both gentle and fierce, but he should never be aggressive without good reason.

Dogos are big-game hunters and are sometimes trained for search and rescue, police assistance, and military work.

This is a breed in need of early socialization and reasonably firm handling. The Argentinian Mastiff is protective and territorial, a good choice for a property watchdog and personal guardian, but while this is undoubtedly a tough working breed, it is quite sensitive and gentle, at times even described by some owners as a “needy” dog. Exceptionally devoted to its master, the Dogo Argentino is affectionate towards children, making it an excellent household pet.

When looking for a puppy to purchase it is highly recommended to contact any of the Breed Clubs we have listed for this breed since it is they who should be able to put you in touch with members who have bred litters according to their Club’s Code of Ethics.

BUYER BEWARE:  Some breeders listed here may not be members of a Dogo Argentino Breed Club, there may be good reasons for this, but ask the question before you enter into any transaction.
