    History “Spanish Alano”

    Grip or prey dog ​​breed of very ancient origins. Medium sized considered breed of Spain. When mixed other races are created as the Bull Dog in Spain, the alano of vautre (grip) in France, the Old bulldog in England, the extinct Bullenbeisser in Germany, or own Dogo Argentino.

    Molosser light dam and corridor. The traditional functionality It is the handling of cattle bravo and semibravo, Iberian trunk, extensive system. big game was also used, as a dog's tooth to the subjection of deer and wild boar. Its modern implementation is care and defence, How to care for cattle against any kind of predator.

      Some authors consider Spanish Alano desciendiente the old dog named Alaunt, Alans used by both war and for handling cattle.

    The existence of Alans dogs Spain dates back several centuries ago, Although it is not clear which was its origin. Some believe that this race was extended by moloso Europe by the alano in the fourth century and was taken to the Iberian Peninsula and to the North Africa by the Vandals.

    In 1350 publishes the rey Alfonso XI their “Book of the Monteria”. In the fifteenth century it is published “Treaty of the Monteria”, anonymous, which performs a deep somatic description of the dog.

    When he is talking about perro Dane everyone knew that this was a prey corridor to justify its name must meet certain features:

    With strong head, of longuilíneas proportions, high rump and good bones. Also your character It was clearly defined by its function gripping dog. “No taking by hunger or award, but by right nature gave Dios” (we call it today prey).

    Of which there is no doubt is that these dogs were very extended, as evidenced by his appearance in paintings. There is a alano that plasma Velázquez in the hunting pit, which it is in the National Gallery de Londres, those of Goya in his Capturing a bull or an engraving of the French Romantic Blanchard. They are also appointed by Cervantes and Lope de Vega Alans of Thirds.

    It is believed, According to the most likely hypothesis, they reached the Iberian Peninsula, accompanying the Alano people, shortly after the fall of Roman empire, about him V century. The alano used primarily for war, hunting and animal husbandry, They were robust and primitive specimens. Later, its unbeatable psychophysical qualities (robustness, courage and loyalty) They make the Alano notabilísimo play a role as a member of the Spanish armies, especially during the conquest of the Americas.

      The first written references to the Alano They appear in the Medievo, Hand Gonzalo de Berceo, in 1247.

    More complete data are in 1347, in the Book of Hunting, Don Alfonso XI "The Enforcer". Other mentions of importance on Alano, worthy of mention occurs in Utrera in 1603, by Fray Francisco de Tamayo.

    In the conquest of New world They played a key role dogs, animal unknown to the indigenous peoples. These, coupled with the horses, armor and arquebuses contributed to the victory.

      They were the terror of the natives, Thus the stories of the time not directed impressive descriptions as the following:

      The Friar Bernardino de Sahagún terms of testimonies of Indians attacked by huge ¨perros, with ears cut, fierce yellow eyes Bloodshot, huge mouths, hanging languages and teeth in the form of knives, wild as the demon and stained as the jaguares¨. The description has an inevitable tone of admiration and fear; Let us not forget that in pre-Columbian times (before the arrival of the conquistadors) the Indians possessed dogs small size and often body. In this way, the Indians called the canes of the Spanish ¨una diabolical invention.
      Bartholomew Columbus and Fontanarossa, brother of the discoverer and Adelantado Governor of Hispaniola, they say the Chronicles employed 200 men, 20 horses and 20 Alans, It was the "debut" of the Alans in the conquest of America.

    The Spanish Alano It is supported primarily by its huge courage, with special mention when dealing with wild boar, disregarding even his own life. Its functions have changed little during these centuries. War Dog, livestock (especially for the beef and veal), hunting and nursery. It is in the eighteenth century when they appear the first written evidence of Spanish Alano, on their participation in the bravo bull party.

    Its qualities traspasarán Spanish borders, becoming very significant exports, both American continent as countries Europe as France, England or Germany in order to improve their own races, especially the Bulldog and the Dogue de Bordeaux. even the international press echoes of its characteristics, as happened in 1873, in the British press, describing carefully to a copy of prey Spanish (Alano), called Bull and reads: “…fighting only subject to his opponent by the head, is silent and immune to pain…”.

      At the end of the 19th century or the beginning of the 20th, begins the decline of the alano, motivated by multiple factors:

      Exclusion of hosts, changes in the tradition of the Monteria and grazing, definitive exclusion from the Festival of the bull and custom. This resulted in the gradual replacement of alano other imported breeds, in most of the times, in an unjustified way. Years later, you get even speculate about the possible disappearance of alano, Since his last appearance publishes occurs in Madrid, in the year 1963 (exhibition at the Retiro Park).
      But they have not disappeared, were some population loopholes in certain marginal areas, difficult access, as are certain mountains Cantabria, País Vasco, Burgos and Salamanca. These remnants of the population managed to survive thanks to its functional qualities, as for the farmers and hunters in the area, outside all fashion and with an enviable sense of practicality, there was simply no better animal to those committed to the Spanish Alano.

    Physical characteristics “Spanish Alano”

    Today, and thanks to the excellent work of recovery of some professionals and public bodies, the Spanish Alano virtually, remains unchanged, It's a medium dog of prey, strong, Agile and very serious. Specially equipped for the handling of cattle, for hunting and for custody.

    Little barking by nature, very resistant to pain and disease, tends to be suspicious and distrustful with strangers and bottom and very affectionate with its owner and family.

    Alano character and skills

    The Alano is an animal slow in their development, reaching maturity, physical and mental, over the two years. From that moment you will find a powerful animal, determined and very noble. As it's a dog selected primarily by their willingness to work, There is some variety of "types", Since the lighter Alans, gifted for hunting, until the heavier, suitable for grazing and save (livestock lines or old Bull Dog).

    Perhaps in recent times less attention to the latter is being, for the most consistent lines for hunting. Perhaps the lovers of this type of alano (Bull Dog), have to consider its viability as a separate race.

      In 1880 "prohibited the fate of"dogs the bull"and that is why Bull rings left keep dogs".

    On the other hand, to stop practicing "hunting in the round", becomes otherwise organize the montería so it is no longer interesting for cattle fall clasped by dogs, but to reach the positions where the montero is bet, who is who pays the entertainment. In these circumstances the flocks deshicieran of the Alans who had.

    Once a dog was useful whether it performed any task. The Spanish Alano "She ceased to have work" after selecting breeds of cattle more docile, so this race back to a dizzying to extinction speed.

    Comments

    It is a very robust breed of dog, that often has a high percentage of Diabetes Mellitus.

    What is Diabetes Mellitus??

    Diabetes is defined as a disorder in the metabolism of the hydrates of carbon, fats and proteins caused by a deficiency of insulin, It can be absolute or relative.

    Insulin is a hormone secreted in the beta cells of the pancreas, whose production allows to control blood sugar (blood glucose levels). Insulin deficiency causes a deterioration in the capacity of tissues to use nutrients, that translates into an increase of glucose in blood (Hyperglycemia).

    Diabetes is classified according to the disease in humans, namely, as type I and type II.

    The type I It is characterized by the destruction of beta cells, What determines the loss progressive and complete end of insulin secretion. Dogs suffering from type I Diabetes Mellitus may have a sudden onset of symptoms due to the rapid loss of the ability to produce insulin. These cases require insulinización from the time of diagnosis and are called diabetics 1,811 (DMID).

    Other dogs may have a gradual loss of insulin secretion, that their beta cells will be destroyed with slow. These animals may have an initial period in which Hyperglycemia is mild or easy control, in which case it's diabetic insulinoindependientes (DMIID), Although in the long term these dogs also need her.

    Diabetes Mellitus type II It is a little more difficult to understand and is characterized by what we call "insulin resistance" and "dysfunctional" beta cells. The secretion of insulin by these cells will be high, low or normal, but not enough to overcome the resistance to it in the peripheral tissues.

    It´s, to explain it in a graphic way, It is as if peripheral tissues do not obey the orders of the insulin or were not able to do what send it.

    In terms of metabolism or synthesis of glucose, These dogs may have DMID or DMIID, namely, need or not insulin according to the magnitude of the insulinorresistencia and functional status of the beta in their ability to produce cells and secrete the hormone in low quantities, normal or high.

    Dogs also recognizes a secondary diabetes, produced by a carbohydrate intolerance (glucose) due to the presence of a disease or a drug treatment that it antagonizes or counteracts the effects of insulin and can lead to the exhaustion of the beta cells of the pancreas with the appearance of diabetes insulinodependiente.

    The owners of diabetic dogs should be aware that the routine in the treatment with insulin and food has to be respected. Two fixed-dose of insulin a day associated with a food palatable to always provide the same source and the same amount of starch, always run at the same time it can reduce the risk of hypoglycemia in diabetic dogs.

    In North America, area where the Australian Terrier is very popular, a research on the incidence of this disease is carried out.

    The race was created to be a buzzard, working to eliminate rodents from kitchens, barns and stables.

    The first draft of the standard is of 1908 and it was not until the year 1913 When the first official standard is recognized.

    Did You Know?

    Physical characteristics of the Affenpinscher

    Character and skills

    They have a different character to what we associate with Terrier. They differ from Terrier in that they usually get along well with other dogs and pets. They are active, adventurous, curious and stubborns, but also cheerful and playful. Because they are affectionates with the family members, the protection is a must to whom they love. It is necessary that, they have a clear education, coherent, if not, it could become difficult to control them. The training must be varied because the dog can get bored easily.

    The Affenpinschers they are somewhat territorial when it comes to their toys and food, That's the reason they are not recommended for younger children. This dog is very quiet, but it can be very aggressive in case it feels attacked or threatened and shows no fear toward any aggressor.

    The Affenpinscher it is a delicate dog that often suffers from intestinal problems.

    Affenpinscher Health

    All dogs have the potential to develop genetic health problems, and all people have the potential to inherit a particular disease. Run, do not walk, any breeder that does not offer a health guarantee in puppies, to tell you that the breed is 100 percent healthy and has no known problems, or to tell you that your puppies are isolated from the main part of the home for health reasons. A reputable breeder will be honest and open about the health problems of race and the incidence with which occur in their lines.

    The monkeys it's a pretty healthy little breed, but individual dogs can develop orthopedic problems like dislocated kneecaps, a common knee condition in small dogs. Affen are also prone to skin conditions that can lead to flank hair loss..

    Not all of these conditions are detectable on a growing puppy, and it is impossible to predict whether an animal will be free from these diseases, so you should find a trusted breeder who is committed to raising the healthiest animals possible. Must be able to produce independent certification that the dog's parents (and grandparents, etc.) They have been examined for defects common and considered healthy for breeding. That's where they enter medical records.

    Don't fall for the lies of a bad breeder. If the breeder tells you that you don't need to do those tests because you have never had a problem with your lines, their dogs have been “reviewed by the veterinarian”, or any of the other excuses bad breeders give to skimp on genetic testing of their dogs, leave immediately.

    Careful breeders examine their breeding dogs for genetic diseases and breed only the healthiest and best looking copies, but sometimes Mother Nature has other ideas and a puppy develops one of these diseases despite good breeding practices. Advances in veterinary medicine mean that in most cases dogs can still live a good life. If you are going to have a puppy, ask the breeder about the ages of the dogs in their lines and what they died from.

    Remember that after you have welcomed a new puppy into your home, It has the power to protect one of the most common health problems: the obesity. Keep a Affenpinscher with a suitable weight it is one of the easiest ways to prolong life. To take the most of preventive skills to help ensure a healthier dog for life.

    Affenpinscher care

    The Affenpinscher it has a thin coat that can be rough or smooth, but the words “smooth” and “rough” can be misleading. Rough-coated dogs have slightly softer textured fur and heavier coat. Some Affen they have a coat that falls somewhere in between. Whatever type of coat you have, the typical monkeys looks clean but a little hairy. You can be sure that it will have leaves and twigs in its fur after being outdoors, so you need regular grooming to maintain your appearance.

    The tools you will need are a brush, a stainless steel comb, a cutter, blunt-ended scissors and scissors to reduce thickness. Remove dead hairs, call “peel” the coat, is part of the package when you live with a monkeys.

    The rest are basic care. Cut nails as needed, usually every few weeks. Small breeds are prone to periodontal disease, so brush your teeth frequently for good general health and fresh breath.

    History

    The American Staffordshire Terrier or Amstaff (different to the American Pitbull Terrier), is a breed of dog type Terrier well known worldwide.

    It is a young breed of dog from the USA.. Among his ancestors are, Besides of Terrier, the Old english bulldog.

    In England and North America, dogfighting had a tradition that dates back to ancient times.. The Old english bulldog was sent to fight bulls in the arenas of animal fighting. Although the Old english bulldog are the forerunners of Bulldogs of nowadays, his physique was much more similar to the current one American Staffordshire Terrier. After animal fighting was officially banned, continued illegally; In the USA. until today. Its origin in the 19th century was the black county of central England, called Staffordshire. Workers from the coal mines and clay pits crossed the Old english bulldog with the terriers. In the official scene of the fight against animals such crosses had been prohibited. It was feared that the fighting power and toughness of the Bulldog will combine with the predatory acuity of the terriers, which would lead to uncontrollable fighting machines. In the illegality of the backyards nobody cared. This is how the “Bull and Terrier” and very quickly came to the US. There they liked to call them “Pit Bulls”. Pit is the name given to the dogfighting ring.

    In 1898 was founded the “United Kennel Club” (UKC), who wanted to take over the breeding of these dogs. But the UKC was nothing more than a professional dogfighting organizer. So the community divided around these dogs. Lovers of Pit Bull they condemned dog fighting, they wanted a friendly family dog. In the meantime, the Pit Bulls they had earned a great reputation in US society. In World War, the courage of Pit Bulls became a boost to the combat power of the American troops. Even celebrities like the President of the United States Theodore Roosevelt showed up with the Pit Bulls.

    On cinemas, “The Little Rascals”, a gang of kids with a dog, was very popular and was featured in 220 episodes between 1922 and 1944. The dog was the guardian and protector, children's playmate and dildo. This dog was a Pitbull. He later became the first dog registered with the American Kennel Club (AKC) for the new breed “Staffordshire terrier“. To draw a clear line in the fighting dog scene, the AKC had insisted on a name change. The first standard was published in 1936. In 1972 there was the second name change to “American Staffordshire Terrier” to distinguish it from its British relative. The Amstaff, what's been called since then, Is higher, bigger and heavier. It is still cared for by the “American Staffordshire Terrier Club of America”, who from the beginning clearly condemned dog fighting and trusted his upbringing as a family dog.

    In many countries, its social discrimination as a fighting machine and the technically unjustifiable classification as “dangerous dog breed” they have hit him hard.
