History

The Fila Brasileiro its history is linked to both genetic mixing and Brazilian colonization. There is no consensus on its origin, pero probablemente la línea brasileña es el resultado de una mezcla de perros cuya especialidad era la caza y el pastoreo de los animales en el campo. The mastín, the Bulldog, the Terceira line (a portuguese breed) and the Scent hound son sólo algunos ejemplos de posibles razas que han contribuido a trazar el ADN de la línea brasileña. Algunos dicen que los perros indígenas (Aracambé) and even the savages, like the guarbo wolf, they may also have participated in the miscegenation.

In some 19th century carvings, the breed was already known to assist in catching oxen, cows, sheep and even big cats, like jaguars, for example. Esto demuestra que la línea brasileña no era sólo un perro para tener en la puerta, taking a nap in the late afternoon: ¡estaba realmente yendo a la pelea! Y tal vez de ahí viene su agudo sentido de la protección, always putting strangers in their place once they get home.

In 1946 the first effort was made to set the breed standard. In 1976, the second standard was recognized and approved during the 1st Symposium of the Brazilian Fila Race. In 1984 the third rule was defined, que sigue vigente hoy en día.

The head is big, heavy and solid, although it is always proportionate to the body. The craniofacial relationship is almost 1:1, with the nose slightly shorter than the skull. The occipital ridge is very prominent, especially in the puppy. The stop is low and inclined, so it should not be seen when looking at the animal from the front. The eyes are medium or large, in the form of almond, quite sunken and colored according to the mantle (yellow to dark brown). Ears are wide and thick, colgantes y en forma de «V». The limbs are parallel and straight, with strong bones. Una característica de la raza es el modo de desplazarse en ambladura. La cola es muy ancha en la raíz y se estrecha rápidamente cuando llega a la altura del corvejón.

  • Fur: short.
  • Color: all solid colors are supported, except white, the rat gray and the mottled or stained coat, liable to disqualification. Solid color layers may have stripes of less intense or very dark color. Black mask is optional.
  • Size: in males, of 63 a 75 cm., con un peso mínimo de 50 kg; in females, of 60 a 70 cm., con un peso mínimo de 40 kg.

Character and skills

The Brazilian Fila is very determined, brave and can be very fierce. They can be docile and very obedient to their owners and family and are very tolerant of children.. Es un perro que ama la compañía de su dueño y siempre trata de estar junto a él. One of the most striking points of the Fila Brasileiro is the aversion to strangers. So they are excellent guard dogs..

The Fila Brasileiro are the protectors of the pack (that is to say, la familia que lo cría) and therefore they need to be educated from an early age. At the age of 7 months already begin to show surveillance potential. As they are very large and very strong dogs, it's important for owners to have a firm wrist and show leadership from an early age, so that the dog becomes obedient and respects the owners.

They are very smart and tend to easily learn the owners' teachings. Tenga cuidado de no ser demasiado rígido en las correcciones cuando el Fila Brasileiro does something wrong, porque pueden ser un poco obstinados y hacer el entrenamiento difícil.

This dog's aggressive instinct should not be stimulated (and less with bloody methods), porque podría convertirse en un animal peligroso, given its great bulk. Without a doubt, this is a breed for experts.
