Fila Brasileiro (Brazilian Mastiff)

Note: If you have this breed, or know   anyone who does, please send a good profile photograph of the Dog (without humans in the background). We shall publish it on this page with credits. You can send it either by e-mail or post.

This is one of Brazil's two native breeds. It is massive and daunting in appearance and wary of strangers. The long muzzle pendulous skin and superb ability to track make its bloodhound ancestry obvious. It has an ability to keep the quarry at bay until the hunter arrives rather than attack immediately. This ability was used during the days of Brazilian slavery when hapless fugitives were returned unharmed to the slave masters. Due to its size and potential for aggression it is banned in some countries. It weighs 4150 kgs and is about 61-76 cms tall. It comes in a variety of colours.
