Translation of Original Standard (Diana Magazine)
« en: 28 de Octubre de 2009, 18:40 »
After reading several translations of the Original Standard of the Dogo Argentino, as laid out by Antonio in the magazine, DIANA, that were incomplete or mistranslated, I decided to track down the original Article in the magazine and translate it myself, with the help of a friend I found it on line. The following is a faithful photo copy of the original. And a link to were you can find it (towards the bottom of the page)

Following the pages of the Article is my translation. Amongst other things I've been a court translator, and the technical language that has to do with anatomy was taken from Webster's Medical Dictionary. Enjoy, feel free to use, but give credit if you do so. Thanks

I'm almost done translating the entire article, about 7 or so pages, and will post it when done.


Skull: Massive, convex both lengthwise and widthwise due to the relief of the chewing muscles and muscles of the neck.

Face: Of the same length as the skull, that is to say that the line that joins the processus (protrusions) of the two eye sockets of the frontal bone should be equidistant from the occiput and upper maxillary alveoli.

Eyes: Dark, protected with eyelids rimmed with black or light colored skin. The separation between the eyes should be great, with an alert and intelligent gaze, but at the same with a pronounced hardness.

Jaws: Well adapted, without prognathism, strong with large, well implanted teeth.

Nose: Strongly pigmented in black, with a slight stop at the end. Ample nostrils.

Ears:  On top of the head; erect or semi-erect of triangular shape. They should always be presented cropped.

Lips: Short, tight, with free edges pigmented in black. Short lips are demanded, so that when the dog is holding, he can breath through the corner of his lip. If the lip is pendulous, even though the jaw is long enough, the lip turns into a valve cover when inhaling and closes the corner of the lips which impedes the animal from supplementary breathing through the mouth during the catch, having to let go due to affixation like happens with the Mastiff.

Occiput: There should be no relief at the base of the skull because the powerful neck muscles cover it completely, the head and neck join in the form of an arch.

Neck: Thick, arched, and graceful, with very thick skin around the throat, making wrinkles like the Mastiff and not tight like the bull terrier. The elasticity of the neck skin owes to the cellular tissue being very lax, this allows the skin to slide along the fascia near the surface in such a way that the tusk, fang, or claw of the adversary only wounds the skin and if it is another dog that tries to grab the neck, because the skin is elastic and stretches a lot it allows the dogo to also grab and hold at the same time.

Chest: Ample and deep, giving the impression of big lungs. Seen from the front, the sternum should extend below the elbows.

Withers: High, very strong, of great muscular relief.

Thorax: Ample, seen from the side extends below the elbows.

Spine (top line): Higher at the withers and smoothly sloping to the croup. Adult animals that have well developed muscles along the back and kidneys when seen from the side look like an armchair and have a channel along the length of the spine, owing to the relief of the spinal muscles.

Front legs: Straight and vertical; with short, tightly closed together toes.

Kidneys: Covered by the dorsal muscles

Rear Legs: Very muscular thighs, short hocks, with short tightly closed together toes, without dewclaws.

Tail: Long, raised in an arch, of ample curvature upwards. During combat the tail is raised in constant lateral movement, like when the dog greets his owner. The length should try to be shortened to improve the harmony of the overall build of the dog, for which reason preference should be given to those specimens whose tails do not reach the hock.

Coat: Completely white. The only tolerable spot is a dark or black one around the eye or on the head in front of the ears. All other spots on any part of the body must be disqualified as an atavistic trait. Dogos with white coats, but with skin that is very pigmented with black, should be considered as specimens not suitable for breeding because of the recessive trait that can become predominate in offspring if coupled with another specimen that has a dominant pigmentation defect.

Disqualifications: Blue eyes; deafness; spots on coat; long hair; white nose; prognathism; pendulous lip, all bodily disproportions.
