Hello everyone,

My name is max I am an Englishman living in Argentina with my Argentine wife and 3 beautiful female Dogos. I am a great fan of the breed and am very sorry that the UK government introduced breed specific legislation BSL(The 1991 Dangerous Dogs Act) that currently makes it illegal to own or import a Dogo in the England.

I will introduce myself and my 3 Dogos now (but in future messages would love to talk about helping to promote the great qualities of the Dogo abroad and to try to get the ban lifted in those countries that have BSL).

2 of my dogs Etta 4yrs and Talca 3.5 yrs (photo) are sisters and have a good family tree on their mother's side. Their mother is Akza de Filo Hua hum (FCA19070) and Grandparents are Ch. Athos de Gran Togo (FCA14346) and India de Cabana Sarasua. Our third dog Laica was found abandoned, malnutritioned and suffering from cancer and uterine cysts. The vet thought calculated she was about 8 yerars old and she had probably been living rough on the streets for several months. Well, after chemotherapy and lots of TLC she is now living a happy, healthy life and is probably the most gentle and affectionate dog I have ever seen. We named her Laica- because the original Laika was allowed to die in space and our Laica had the chance of a new life!
I will try to post some pictures next time.
Best wishes to all Dogo lovers and owners
Max

Hello here are some pictures of Talca

She is  3.5 years old, and comes from a good blood line on her mother's side (One of her grandfathers is  Ch Athos de Gran Togo). She has pigment spots on her skin but no black hairs. She has large head and jaws. She was one of a litter of only 3 pups.

I dont cut the ears of my Dogos because they are not used for hunting in bush and thorns- this makes them more expressive. Also I have not registered her with the FCA and do not use for shows. She has a diet of Eukanuba dried food mixed with small quantities of cooked vegetables rice, fish or meat. She has beef bones for her teeth but usually these are boiled to remove excess fat.

She is an incredibly loyal companion, loves affetion but also is a very good guard dog. She will defend her house very strongly but is very friendly with our friends a true Doga.

Best wishes

Max
