    Sweet! Looks like Bruno is putting a hurting on those hogs. Possum hunting was one of favorite when I was over there.

    Wow! Does bruno "catch" the hogs too? It looks like there are scratch and bite marks on it. Did you or Bruno induce the stomach wound?

    Just to answer your questions. @ ttddinch- No Bruno only puts his teeth into the boars head to hold it until I get there to heart stick with a bayonett. I remove the gut of the pig before carrying it out whole and that is why the gut cavity is open- This keeps the meat fresh. @ Jellyfart There is only one target species that Bruno is aloud to hunt and that is Wild pig. The bottom photo just shows Bruno having his breakfast which in this case is a whole possum which I have already trapped and killed.

    Nice catch, and nice dogo!

    I think Parka would love being a catch dog. Blue too probably.

    Thanks Clay.............that took away my appetite for the BBQ. -)
  • I love Dogos! I have looked into them for a few years now ... unfortunately, they are too big for my place right now.
    Bruno is very handsome =] !
    This is one of my many favorite pictures of Dogos!

    Very cool! Until a few days ago, I had no idea what a hog dog was. Our new pup was being housed with ten of these hog dogs. These dogs are amazing! My son had to give a shot to a pig that was over 200 pounds this evening and it took three teenagers to keep it still. It takes a lot of strength to keep a hog down and for your dog to do it alone is simply WOW!
  • WOW this is sooo cool. I am so interested in hunting with dogs, but to be honest I'd probably never try it. I don't think I could ever shoot or put a spear into something, lol. But it fascinates me so much. I love reading @TheWalrus 's blog for this same reason. If my hubby wanted a nihon ken and go hunting with him, i'd encourage him.

    @amti - I knew of a dogo hunter that also had a pet shiba. By chance is the dogo hunter Cazadores?

    That's Morocho De La Cocha.

    La Cocha kennel in Argentina is run by the family of the breed founder. Dogs are true to their original function.

    Hey there Nihon community- Its 2012 was a good year for my Dogo Argentino Bruno. He sustained very little injury in all his hunting. The last boar he caught with this other dog pictured (a Dogo X Greyhound...the black and white dog) was an 80 kg wild New Zealand boar caught in the rain forest in the top of the south island.

    @Clay - Thanks. It's looking like my dogo pup will arrive here this weekend. The dam of my pup is the daughter of "Morocho". I'm excited.

    @mdokic - Yes, I've been waiting a long time for the right Dogo pup. I wanted one from lines who test their dogs on Puma. How many dogs? Too many! :P

    @ayk - A little of both. Hunting boar with Kishin or Jingu and the Laiki, and as "backup" for when I run Jingu and/or the Laiki on lion. This pup is a gift to me from a friend who I helped with some things.

    My dogo's lines are the only puma-tested lines here in the USA. He's from Dr. Ulises D'Andrea-Nores nephew, so his dogs come from La Cocha Kennels (hints how my pup is grandson of Morocho). I had a chance to get a pup out of Morocho, but it was decided that the litter was abit too quarrelsome for my needs, and so I waited for this pup.

    @shishiinu - Yep! And I hope you will be fully involved in that task! ;) It would be cool if he was comfortable enough with you and your dogs that you could borrow him if you wanted.

    I also hope that once I have him trained I can maybe run him with Sakura... She shows some good instincts for that type of work.

    Running boars with Laikas and a Dogo. Wouldn't that irritate the Laika community?

    When you say he is from a puma-tested line, does that mean the puppy will be more dog-social than the other lines of Dogo Argentinos in North America? I know a few bear- and cougar-hunters who bought Dogos from Mexico or Columbia and found them too dog-aggressive to be hunted with.

    @souggy - I'm sure it will irritate the Laika purists out there. It doesn't take much to do that. But running bay dogs with a catch dog (bay dogs bay, you release the catch dog to catch) is a pretty common way to hunt boar in the US.

    Dogo Argentinos are not supposed to be quarrelsome. They are made to run and work in a pack. There are a lot of people who mix their Dogos with game-bred Pitbulls and so produce rather quarrelsome versions of the breed. I know that is very common in Mexico.

    Puma-tested just means the dogs from the line are proven on large cat. Most of the Dogos in America come from lines proven on boar, but not used at all on big cat... this line of dogo is proven on both.

    So where is Dogo Andersino? its already Tuesday and way past "this weekend"... ;) or is it Next weekend?

    There are pure dogos that are quarrelsome at home, but at soon as they see the hunting gear, their focus are on the upcoming hunt and not each other. Even intact male dogos from different households that hate each other at first sight will settle down once they see that a hunt is upcoming.
