"I mentioned KNPV as one of the sports I'd buy puppies from, because the breeders that compete in KNPV breed their dogs for police and military work, and not just for the sport itself. These individuals breed the most balanced protection dogs on a consistent basis. If we in the US started breeding our dogs for a job, and not just for sport, we'd produce a much higher quality of canine for true personal protection, dogs such as the police and military use, dogs that can truly do the job."
Second article by Dr. Antonio Nores-Martinez:
"Starting with this base 25 years ago, I set out to make a breed, conserving these traits of courage, tenacity, and acclimation, that would be a general utility perro de presa (catchdog), a guardian, and a dog for the eradication of wild animals, that is to say, a faithful companion in our home in the city or in the field, as well as our passion for big game hunting."
Now what have I said that contradicts either of these two obviously knowledgable people? What have I said that Dr. Nores would disapprove of? Man is definitely big game when speaking in the context of LE work. Weight isn't mentioned in the article except that 30 kilogram dogs made great combat dogs and that a larger size mattered only in regards to having the ability to fight other large animals. Specific weight didn't matter as much as a the ability to successfully hunt and fight. That in itself is what the majority of LE canines are for, hunting and fighting large animals, aka human criminals. Given these considerations, I misspoke about refining the dog. Dr. Nores' own beliefs on what the dog should be is more than adequate to have them as LE canines. Just as you stated you had a problem with an out on your dog, other individual dogs would have their problems to correct as well.
All that being said, I still believe dogos would make great dogs for LE work, especially when compared to what Dr. Nores envisioned.
Good luck with your endeavors. I came to the board asking what I thought were pretty legitimate questions. I didn't receive exactly what I was seeking regarding the dog's lineage and breeder info, but I was given honest answers about testing the dog. This turned into a pissing match and I really can't figure out why. Regardless, there is a lot of knowledge on this forum and I'll go back to just reading and learning rather than debate bs with you. No one gains anything from it.
