"As a family dog, or rather in it's role of "man's best friend", the Dogo differs little from any other dog in the companion or working breeds. If any characteristic does differentiate them, it is their extraordinary patience and gentleness with children. The Dogo responds fully according to how it is treated, and displays to it's owner qualities of docility, abnegation, fidelity, and devotion as the most endearing spaniel. It is not a one man dog, as the English so assuredly call those animals who become so fond of one person that they bite all others, rather the Dogo is a family dog, not jealous in it's affection and equally faithful to it's owner, his wife, children, help, or family friends."
- Augustin Nores Martinez Co-Creator of the Dogo Argentino
My Dogos are not bred for protection.
They are bred for funtionality in the field.
"Once we have greeted an unknown person, or the person sees him in our company....the Dogo should never show unfriendliness towards that person, unless of course, that person directly attacks us....however brave a guardian he may be, when he has understood that the visitor is welcome in the home, he will never try to bite this person."
- Agustin Nores Martinez, translated from "The Argentine Dogo"
