We received this some weeks ago from a friend of us.
It is written by a judge named Otto Schimpf he is a breed specialist/judge.
We translated it as good we could in English, if somebody is able to translate it better..don`t hesitate LOL
There still are:
Since years appears - as by many other breeds and unfortunately also with the Dogo Argentino - is it quite clear the tendency and the fact that the dogs are so far away from the original standard and their original way of use that the people already speak about " Show Lines" and " Working lines". Which sounds nice and sweet, but from kynologic view it is nonsense. Either there are dogs, which look in such a way and are able to funktion, as the original standard demand it, or the FCI standard must be changed or created it equal a new race, as it was for example the case with the Akita. The Dogo Argentino is to for quite some time in the middle from this enormous trend.
But still the good examples can be found as in an international hunting magazine (October 2010) during a hunt in La Pampa: So a Dogo Argentino has to be, as he was and as it should be, like the standard is demanding. ( Refering to the first picture )
Concretely, the short muzzle - plumpy dogs with short back and with molosser overbuilded heads do not correspond how the Dogo Argentino was described in the FCI group of hunting dogs (1974 the former group of 5). Time will see, whether it will come from the current professional people from the club Del Dogo Argentino or as well from the FCI, but the time becomes scarce.
Current show example, also not to imagine that these dogs pursue and to stop a wild boar after kilometers - in the essential points it does not score into the standard ( Refering to the second picture )
