    Dogo de Burdeos

    The Dogue de Bordeaux It is very faithful to its owner and loving with children.

    History

    The Dogue de Bordeaux, it is a medium to large size molossian from France. The Molossian type has been known since ancient times and played a considerable role in various cultures of the ancient world.. The Babylonians carved their molosser out of granite. They served rulers like Hammurabi as war dogs. Molosses are strong and heavy dogs. They have a commanding head with a short snout and long lips.. The ears are usually worn hanging. According to the traditions of antiquity in words and images, the main characteristics of the molosser have remained essentially the same for thousands of years.

    The range of their tasks in the service of man has also remained constant for a long time. The ancestors of the Dogue de Bordeaux served as a hunting dog for large, well-fortified game, especially as a saupacker. They had to catch and corner the dangerous boar until the hunter could kill it with the feather of the boar, a special spear. This required speed, resistance, much courage and strength. The Dogue de Bordeaux served and continues to serve today as a guard and protection dog. In the Middle Ages it was used for the arenas of animal fighting. Large and small mollusks have always been scattered across Europe. The Dogue de Bordeaux was created as an independent breed with the emergence of modern dog breeding as a separate dog breed. In 1863 The first French dog show was held at the Paris Acclimatization Garden.

    The Dogue de Bordeaux it was already shown there under its current name. The name must derive from the fact that these dogs were seen more often in the butchers of the city of Bordeaux. At that time the Dogue de Bordeaux they were not so big however, heavy and as wrinkled as today. Also lacking the monochromaticity required today. The male awarded in Paris in 1883, “Battle”, his head was wrinkle free with a black mask. The Dogue de Bordeaux often had to suffer the political turmoil of humanity. During the French Revolution in 1789 was almost exterminated, because he was considered the dog of the rich. During the two world wars, the dogs had to suffer so much that their breed was endangered after the wars. Since the decade of 1960 has been experiencing a new boom. To revive the race, it is said that they were crossed with the St. Bernard short hair.

    The Dogue de Bordeaux It has an impressive appearance, despite or perhaps because it is not as big and heavy as a mastiff or a Saint Bernard.

The weight of the males is of “at least 50 kg” and that of the females of “at least 45 kg”. Unfortunately, the standard does not provide an upper weight limit. So today we see specimens with 70 kg and more.

    Especially such gigantism is at the expense of dogs' fitness and health.. Belgian Earl Bylandt gives 1894 as weight for the male 54 – 60 kg. German cynologist Richard Strebel reports in 1905 of 54 – 55 kg as the best weight for a male and 45 – 46 kg for a female. Such weight would also do very well to the current Dogue de Bordeaux. The coat of the Dogue de Bordeaux must be thin, short and soft to the touch. Should be “solid in all fawn color tones from mahogany to Elizabethan”. White spots on the chest and extremities of the limbs are allowed when they are not very extensive. This color restriction is also not very beneficial for the gene pool of the Dogue de Bordeaux.

    History

    The Dogo Argentino (Argentine Dogo) is a breed of dog, created by the Argentine physician Antonio Nores Martinez, looking for an animal suitable for the hunting of common species in Argentina, such as wild boar, peccaries and red foxes. Courage, courage and nobility are qualities that enhance the maximum in this race.

    The Dogo Argentino It is the only living Argentine dog breed (see footnote two extinct races), defined by its creator, Dr. Antonio Nores Martinez, as “the best dog among all dogs of prey and more prey among all dogs in the world”.

    In the Decade of 1920, Antonio Nores Martinez (aided by his brother Agustín, his father Antonio and uncles) He decided to create a race of dam to collect the best qualities of the “Cordoba Fighting Dog“, but with superior physical strength and dimensions. In addition, It was proposed to bring a dog to have skills to hunt in Pack, particularly of wild boars, but he was able to beat or stop him only to the dam in combat until the arrival of his master or the rest of the Pack.

    Antonio used as the basis for the “Cordoba Fighting Dog“, a mixture of races introduced in the Argentina by English residents, Bull Terrier and Bulldog, with races that had brought the Spaniards, Spanish Alaunt and Spanish Mastiff. At these crossing, He was unbeaten in the fights of dogs, Antonio added blood lines Bull Terrier and Pyrenean Mastiff. Like this, in the thirteenth generation, Antonio was given account that had created a “war machine” perfect, an invincible battle dog. The white dogs of Antonio became famous as any other dog could overcome them rings.

    It thus creates the Araucana family. Then Antonio proposed legalizing the dog that had been created, because the fighting, Despite being his passion, they were prohibited throughout the world. On the other hand, He was fascinated by the idea of directly killing a dog to lift, continue and captured the dam. The Araucana family not served for hunting because they were very aggressive, very heavy in relation to its height and lack of sense of smell. Then Antonio introduced blood Pointer, creating the Guaraní family. These Doges maintained the fighting spirit of the Araucana family, but they were more resistant to pursue prey, they had a better sense of smell and could be that they did not battle.

    They spent several years crossing, selections and adequate functional gymnastics until towards the end of the Decade of 1940, Antonio managed to consolidate the current Argentine dogo, recognized as the most excellent hunting dog.

    In 1946 It organized a public match for the presentation of the race between Añá, an extraordinary specimen of Dogo Argentino and a breeding boar of 5 years. It was a tough race for Aña, the fight came out victorious, then surrendered it in forty minutes, finishing the fight in perfect physical condition. The battle was filmed and woke up in the cinófilos a great admiration for the Doge (“The Dogo Argentino“, by Paolo Vianini, Vecchi publishing, 2006.).

    In 1947 Augustine hosted a match in the Spanish Club of Morón between Chinese, a Dogo Argentino and a Creole Black Bull, great fighter. After a while of combat, that it caused him to Chinese femur fracture, He managed to turn the nose of the bull, which, in a few minutes, He could not resist more pain and knelt. Chinese not dropped. The end was really a party to the Spanish public. Francisco, another brother of Antonio, He entered the arena and spoke to Chinese who burst into their prey and continued limping (“The Dogo Argentino“, by Paolo Vianini, Vecchi publishing, 2006.).

    Augustine was a great diffuser of the race, finally achieving its recognition as such (see letter from Dr. Agustín Nores Martínez to the FCA). The standard was published in the magazine “Diana” in 1947. The official recognition in Argentina took place in 1964, and the international in 1973. You can read the letter sent by Dr. Agustín Nores Martinez1 to the Federation Cynologique Argentina requesting the opening of genealogical records of the breed, where he makes a detailed account of the virtues and potential of Dogo Argentino.

    In the last decades the Dogo Argentino It has been successfully introduced in the United States and several countries in Europe. Very good breeders can be found today in various countries throughout the world and of course Argentina, cradle of the Doge, that there are breeders of excellence. It is currently one of the regulatory dogs for police in Lebanon.

    History

    The race Dobermann is the only one in Germany to bear the name of its first known breeder: Friederich Louis Dobermann (2 of January 1834 – 9 of June 1894). According to the story, he was a tax collector, trail manager, and in addition “perrero”, with the legal right to catch all free-roaming dogs. To create the smart and reliable watchdog you had in mind, crossed short haired sheepdogs with Rottweilers, black and tan terrier, and German Pinschers. Chic dogs like greyhounds and Weimaraners may also have been part of their “recipe”. The “butcher dogs” played the most important role in the formation of the breed Dobermann, that in those times they were already seen as a race in itself. These dogs were of the type of the predecessors of the current Rottweiler, mixed with a type of black shepherd dog with red-rust markings that was common in the Thuringia region. With these mixtures, Dobermann started his hatchery in the years 70 of the century 19. In this way, he got “its race” utility dogs, home and ranches, they weren't just vigilantes, but also very attached to man.

    It was widely used as a protection dog and for the police. Its wide utility in the Police Service gave it at that time the name of “gendarme dog”. In hunting it was mainly used for the extermination of vermin. For all the conditions previously exposed, it was obvious that the FCI-St. N° 143 / 30.09.2016 3 Dobermann was officially recognized as a police dog at the beginning of the century 20. The upbringing of Dobermann resulted in a medium dog, strong and muscular, that despite all its substance allows to recognize elegance and nobility. It is suitable as a companion dog, protection and utility.

Leaving him alone in the garden would mean ruining his character.. About him Dobermann a lot of gossip circulates, like for example that this dog "goes crazy" around the age of seven due to the lack of cranial capacity (one of the biggest absurdities, from the scientific point of view, never heard in cynophilia, and it is not that few are heard). Today, Fortunately, rare are cases of "crazy" or "irrepressible ferocity".

    Observations and tips

    Unselected dogs and the result of casual couplings are the only ones that can be nervous and in some cases biting. It is essential to buy the puppy in a good kennel that selects beauty and character.

    Doberman 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.

    One of the most serious race-related health problems in the Doberman is cardiomyopathy., which causes an increase in the size of the heart. An annual heart exam is critical to detect this condition early., and no dog with cardiomyopathy should be bred. Nor should any Dobermann without a complete cardiac examination by a veterinary cardiologist in the past year. The sad reality, However, is that a dog that gets a good exam one day can develop heart disease the next day, and the two-parent puppy without heart disease can still develop it.

    Another race-related condition that affects the Dobermann is cervical vertebral instability (CVI), commonly called Wobbler syndrome. It is caused by a malformation of the vertebrae in the neck that causes pressure on the spinal cord and leads to weakness and lack of coordination in the hindquarters and sometimes to complete paralysis.. Symptoms can be managed to some extent in dogs that are not severely affected, and some dogs experience some relief from surgery, but the result is not certain. Although IVC is believed to be genetic, there is no disease screening test.

    The Dobermans they are also prone to the bleeding disorder known as von Willebrand disease, as well as hypoadrenocorticism or Addison's disease.

    Not all of these diseases are detectable in a growing puppy, and it is impossible to predict whether an animal will be free from these diseases, so you need to find a reputable breeder who commit to raise healthier 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.

    Breeders must accept that all test results, positive or negative, are published in the CHIC database. It is not necessary for a dog to receive good results or even pass the evaluations to obtain a CHIC number, so CHIC registration alone is not proof of robustness or absence of disease, but all test results are published on the CHIC website and can be accessed by anyone who wants to check the health of a puppy's parents. If the breeder tells you that you don't need to do those tests because you have never had a problem with your lines and your dogs have been “vet checked”, so you need to find a breeder who is more rigorous with genetic testing.

    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.

    Not all visits by Dobermann to the vet they are due to a genetic problem. The Dobermans are one of the breeds with a deep chest and a tendency to swell, a condition in which the stomach expands with air. This can become the most serious condition, gastric torsion, if the stomach twists on itself, cutting off blood flow. Gastric torsion, or gastric dilatation volvulus, suddenly attacks, and a dog that was fine a minute can die a few hours later. Watch for symptoms like restlessness and step, babeo, pale gums and lip licking, try to vomit but without bringing out anything, and signs of pain. Gastric torsion requires immediate veterinary surgery, and most dogs that have swollen once will swell again. This means that it is prudent to opt for the procedure known as “gastric torsion”, which will prevent the stomach from twisting in the future. This procedure can also be done as a preventive measure..

    Remember that after bringing a new puppy home, It has the power to protect one of the most common health problems: the obesity. Keep a Dobermann 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.

    Dobermann Grooming

    The toilet is a piece of cake. Cepilla al Dobermann with a brush or hunting glove every week, or even run a wet towel over it. The days you need a bath, use a dog shampoo, not a human product. Rinse it well and let it stir to dry or towel dry.

    The Dobermann comes off hair moderately. Regular brushing will help keep him and your house clean.. As with any dog, brushing before bathing helps remove more dead hair, leaving less hair to shed. Your vacuum cleaner will run longer if you brush your Dobermann regularly.

    History

    This terrier shot was specially developed around 1600 in the Cheviot Hills and near Coquetdale to support the hunting of otters and badgers. But also predators and hares made life very difficult for this accomplished hunter..

    Most dogs of this breed were only kept by very few families in the area and were also rarely given to strangers.. Well-known breeder Willi Allan, for example, maintained an exceptional herd, but he refused to sell even one of his dogs despite the high offers.

    Her children and grandchildren continued this tradition after her death in 1704, but occasionally they gave a dog to good friends or as a favor. The aforementioned breeder John Davidson received a partner this way and began his breeding.

    It was the favorite dog of the French King Luis Felipe, who owned a couple of dandies about 1840.

    The painter Gainsborough immortalized the Dandie Dinmont Terrier in his portrait of the Duke of Buccleuch.

    Like breed of Scottish hunting dog, the terrier was originally used to hunt otters and badgers; with its long and flexible body it had ideal conditions for hunting in the substructure. Today the Dandie Dinmont Terrier He is considered a faithful companion and a happy companion in many life situations..

    It is considered the direct ancestor of the no less independent rough haired dachshund. With the foundation of the first Club Dandie Dinmont in 1875, breed characteristics were unified.

    In the countries of the European continent, the Dandie Dinmont Terrier lags far behind the enthusiasm of the people of the British Isles in terms of popularity.

    In his native land he can still be experienced as a determined hunting and surveillance dog., but a life as a companion dog is more common. This little terrier is rarely observed compared to other breeds..

    The usual height of the shoulders between 20 and 28 centimeters is no longer stipulated in the FCI standard. The nomenclature is limited to a weight of eight to eleven kilograms for this little terrier.

    The Dandie Dinmont Terrier is a direct descendant of the Skye Terrier. Although the breed is relatively common in Britain, this humble dog is rarely seen outside this country.

    The Dandie Dinmont Terrier is a special representative of the terrier group. Fierce, brave and tough, is a reliable tracker and a good hunting helper.

    In the hunt he faces polecats, badgers and otters. Many terrier breeds have the genes of the dandies.

    “Young Pepper”.
    “Little Pepper”.
    “Old mustard”.
    “Young mustard”.

    According to the breed standard, the shoulder height of the Dandie Dinmont Terrier Must be from 24 a 28 cm., the ideal weight under working conditions should be between 8 and 11 kg.

    Some of its physical characteristics, like short curved legs, the backs tucked, round head and big eyes, probably date back to the crossing of several breeds of sniffer dogs.

    The coat consists of a curly mix of hard and soft hairs, which are also quite long, about 5 cm.. Normally the coat of the Dandie Dinmont requires relatively little cleaning, it just needs to be combed regularly and trimmed several times a year.
