The Argentine Dogo is a large (80-100 lbs), white rare breed of dog that is also known as the Dogo Argentino or the Argentinian Mastiff.  As its namesake obviously states, the breed originated in Argentina where it was used to hunt big game (often boar and puma).  When the Dogo breed was being created, it was a goal to create a large dog that could hunt in packs.

Argentine Dogos may have natural or cropped ears.  The Dogo pup in the photo above has natural ears.  This breed is slow to mature, with females reaching full size around 2 years of age and males at 3 years of age.  The Dogo’s light color can lead the breed to be prone to sunburn.  Owners of this breed need to take this into account on very bright days.
