Dinamarca FCI 315 - Molossoid - Dogo


The Broholmer It was used as a watchdog for large farms and feudal lands.



The Broholmer it's interesting, partly because it is a very old breed of dog whose ancestry in the Danish royal house dates back to the time of Frederick II and Christian IV. King James I of Scotland reportedly, in relation to his marriage to the daughter of Frederick II in 1589, honró a la corte danesa con unos magníficos perros de tipo mastín. Estos perros ingleses se aparearon con los perros que Federico II ya tenía. The type of dog was named “The Great Danish Dog” since the Viking Age, that is to say, a few 400 years before Frederick II.

We begin our historical review around 1850 at the Renaissance castle of Broen Broenne in Gudme. Aquí es donde el chambelán Niels Frederik Bernhard Sehested (1813-1882) decided to reinstate and re-breed the old Danish dog, since the breed was about to become extinct at this time.

Para promover la cría del perro, ordenó criar cachorros a diez personas en el país. However, existía la condición de que uno debería prometer seguir la cría. In this way, el perro se hizo ampliamente utilizado y se convirtió en un perro muy común y preciado.

Un viejo diario decía: The Broholmer it has become an ordinary dog ​​in Denmark and especially on the streets of Copenhagen.

The Broholmer also had its importance among royalty. King Frederick VII and Countess Danner had several broholmers. Both the king and the countess appreciated the breeder and were represented with their dogs on numerous occasions..

Unfortunately, early twentieth century, this breed lost a lot of ground. Dog disease, epidemics and inbreeding problems killed many dogs. Después de esto, the tracks of these adorable dogs almost disappeared, until in 1974 The alarm rang.

El Danish Kennel Club comenzó una búsqueda nacional de broholmers, and he found some dogs similar to broholmers, para que se pueda comenzar un trabajo de cría real.

Although only a few dogs were found, lograron comenzar un trabajo de cría. The result of this work are the dogs that exist today in Denmark, whose owners are recommended to be members of the Broholmerselskabet.

Since 1974, un comité de cría bajo el Danish Kennel Club ha sido responsable de la planificación de la cría del criador. In 1996, el Broholmerselskabet, in collaboration with the Danish Kennel Club, obtained a valid cooperation agreement from the 1 in January of 1997, which meant that the members and dogs of the Broholmerselskabet were on their way to becoming a formal part of the Danish dog job. El acuerdo de cooperación con DKK cumplió los deseos de sus miembros expresados ​​en las reuniones de miembros en todo el país en 1995. The race was on the way to recognition.

The Broholmer has been recognized as a Danish national breed and has been granted international approval, el pedigrí de la FCI, so breed approved dogs can now be showcased at DKK shows. This means that it can display broholmers on par with other breeds of dogs. Esto ahora ha resultado en el hecho de que varios broholmers ya han recibido el título de Campeón Danés y Campeón Internacional.

The Broholmer it has also been internationally approved, meaning puppies can be sold to foreign stakeholders.

Many breeds of dogs changed their appearance in the years around the last century and had to bow to various models., which in some cases caused problems that they then had to deal with. The Broholmer no ha sido objeto de ninguna ilusión de moda de ningún tipo. The standard is, with some changes, the same one that Sehested wrote.


After the reconstruction of the race, el color negro fue difícil de recuperar, pero en la actualidad se cría sin problemas.
