Fila Brasileiro is also a mix sub breed of
mastiff dogs and it has its origins in the country of Brazil. The breeds other than mastiff that were
crossed to get the resultant Fila Brasileiro, included the
bloodhound dog breed & the bulldog breed. Like any other mix breed, Fila Brasileiro too shares the traits of both the breeds that have been used
in the cross. The breeders usually take under consideration the fact that such breeds have both the aggressive
qualities and the qualities that can result in their taming in a balanced manner. Therefore they select the
original breeds for crossing according or depending on what qualities they want dominant and what they want
general definition that defines Fila Brasileiro is that it is a
guard dog. Those who take them up use them as their guard dogs and this is one quality that they are
looking for when they are searching for a dog that suits their requirements. However, guarding is not the only
thing that Fila Brasileiro does.
Fila Brasileiro is known for its loyalty as well. However, this
loyalty is not that easy to earn and is not given to everyone. For example if a family has adopted this
breed as their guard come pet dog the family including the kids will be entitled to the famous loyalty and
with time friends who are a frequent presence in the house will also get the special treatment.
This is the maximum generous that
Fila Brasileiro will get and this is one reason that it is said
that it is not for everyone to keep. Only those who are trained enough and have the experience and are
used to handling dogs should go for this pick. Also, those families that entertain a lot of guests on frequent
bases should also avoid this breed and pick some other one as they are not too keen on socializing with a
large number of people.
These dogs even though with their
sharp and hyper temper are still considered an integral part of the dog shows. They are marked on this
aggressive behavior. However, if this temper is lost more than the standard marked then they are down marked.
The basic criteria is that the owner of the dog has enough control over their pet that they don’t get out of
control and limit their reactions on the owner’s instructions. As long as this balance is maintained people
actually quite enjoy their presence in the dog shows & are in the list of the most favorite

in size and skin that is loosely attached; added with different range of colors that they are available in

a piece of art & when groomed in the right manner turn out to be amazing species that can make other dog
enthusiasts quite jealous.
