1. The Dogo Argentino is a big-game hunter and guardian breed from Argentina.

    In 1928, Antonio Nores Martinez, a medical doctor, professor and surgeon, set out to breed a big game hunting dog that was also capable of being a loyal pet and guard dog.

  2. It’s strength, tenacity, sharp sense of smell and bravery make it the best dog among working dogs.

    After a thorough and minute character study and selection, through different generations, Dr. Antonio Nores Martinez accomplished his purpose, obtaining the first family. Its harmony, balance and its excellent athletic muscles are ideal characteristics for enduring long trips in any weather conditions and then fighting fiercely with the pursued prey’.

  3. The breed’s first public appearance took place at the Hunting Dog Show by the Buenos Aires Hunters Club.

    The original standard for the breed had been published in the May 1947 issue of Diana Magazine.

  4. Tested in the Argentine wilderness, the Dogo Argentino was fast becoming a legend.

    Antonio Nores Martinez passed away tragically November 2, 1956, his dream somewhat to be fulfilled. Agustin Nores Martinez became sole guardian of the breed and, under his direction, additional breeding among the original Dogo Argentino families already on the ground was undertaken during the following fifteen years.

  5. The Club del Dogo di Cordoba was founded in 1969. In 1973 the breed was accepted by FCI as the first and only Argentinean breed.

    Thanks to the great passion, work and effort of Dr. Augustin Nores Martinez, its creator’s brother and successor.
