Which of these two breeds is stronger, and could win a fight!?
The Dogo Argentino and the American Pitbull Terrier (APBT) look so similar that the Dogo Argentino is frequently incorrectly identified as an APBT.
First of all, I want to tell you that I do not support and don’t agree with real fights between dogs.
This article represents a hypothetical struggle to find out which dog breed is stronger.
American Pit Bull Terrier
The American Pit Bull Terrier is a companion and family dog breed.
Originally bred to “bait” bulls, the breed evolved into all-around farm dogs,
and later moved into the home to become “nanny dogs” due to their gentle nature around children.
The American Pit Bull Terrier has a long history of being a physically active, muscular, very agile breed, and has maintained breed type for over 150 years.
The Dogo Argentino
The Dogo Argentino, also known as the Argentinian Mastiff or the Argentine Dogo, is a powerful, athletic, and devoted breed.
They can be fierce hunters as well as gentle protectors of their humans.
They have a high prey drive, a strong will, and, at times, a distrust of strangers and other animals, all of which require the use of an experienced dog owner.
History of dog breeds
American pit bull terrier
The modern American pit bull terrier can be traced back to the early nineteenth century in England.
Bulldogs and terriers were crossed to create spirited, courageous, and athletic dogs that were gentle with their family.
They evolved into multipurpose working dogs, driving livestock, hunting, protecting property, and performing other tasks. They were also family members.
Unfortunately, they were also used for inhumane blood sports like bullbaiting and dog fighting, which is why they are still unfairly stereotyped as aggressive and are even banned in some areas.
The breed arrived in the United States in the mid-1800s and was refined further.
In 1898, the United Kennel Club was founded, with the American pit bull terrier, the founder’s own dog, as the first breed on its registry.
They can be excellent service and therapy dogs, police and military dogs, search-and-rescue dogs, and more, in addition to companion dogs.
The Dogo Argentino
The Dogo Argentino is a descendant of the now-extinct Fighting Dog of Cordoba, a large, fierce dog bred for, well, fighting, as the name suggests.
Antonio Nores Martinez of Argentina wished for a fearless hunting dog that could handle the terrain of his homeland while also serving as a loyal companion.
Martinez began using selective breeding in the 1920s with the goal of reducing the dog’s desire to fight so that it could cooperate in a pack, and he worked to replace the fighting instinct with the need to hunt.
Several breeds were crossed to achieve the desired characteristics of the Dogo Argentino breed.
Martinez developed a dependable companion dog with a strong prey drive and muscular build, ideal for hunting in Argentina’s rugged terrain or serving as a devoted family guardian.
Unfortunately, the breed is still used in dog fighting rings due to its strength and fearlessness.
The American Pit Bull Terrier is a medium-sized, well-built dog with smooth, well-defined musculature. This breed is both strong and agile.
The body is slightly longer than tall, but bitches may be slightly longer than dogs.
The length of the front leg (from elbow to ground) is roughly equal to one-half of the dog’s height at the withers.
The medium-length head has a broad, flat skull and a wide, deep muzzle. Ears are small to medium in size, high set, and can be cropped or natural.
This breed combines strength and athleticism with grace and agility and should never appear bulky or muscle-bound.
Above all, the APBT must be a functional catch dog, able to hold, wrestle, push and pull, and breathe easily while performing its duties.
Pitbulls have a height of 18 to 19 inches (45 – 48 cm) for males and a weight of 30 to 85 pounds (13 – 38 kg).
The Dogo Argentino
The Dogo Argentino will have a short, smooth, all-white coat. They can have a dark patch of coat near one of their eyes, but it cannot cover more than 10% of their head.
The Argentino Dog should have a large head, dark eyes that are alert, and a strong body.
Because they hunt big game, the Dogo Argentino should be well-muscled and agile.
Skin pigmentation should not be visible through a mature coat because the coat is dense enough to conceal the skin.
Dogo Argentinos are large dogs that grow to a standard height of about 24 to 27 inches at the shoulder (60 – 68 cm).
The breed usually weighs between 80 and 100 pounds (36 – 50 kg).
Affectionate, tenacious, attached, and passionate… A pitbull longs to be with the right person.
They are protective but also love people, so they do not make good guard dogs. You can count on your PitBull to be your BFF and never wish to part.
Pit Bull Terriers have a bad reputation because they were historically used as fighting dogs, which is now illegal.
In general, they, like many other dog breeds, are only as good as their training. In comparison to other dog breeds, the Pit Bull is not particularly dangerous.
Pit Bulls, like other Terrier breeds, have a strong prey drive.
And, while we now mostly keep dogs as family pets, many dogs were purposefully bred to do the very things we critique them for.
Early socialization and consistent training will be extremely beneficial.
To be on the safe side, keep your Pit Bull on a leash just in case its prey drive is triggered by a squirrel.
While Dogo Argentinos are bred to hunt, they are also loyal to their owners and prefer to be close to them.
When Dogo Argentino puppies are well-socialized, they are playful pups who enjoy all the extra loving attention.
It’s probably best if a Dogo joins a family when the children are older and more capable of dealing with his boisterous energy.
They require intense mental stimulation in order to be happy and engaged. Physical activity that is focused also brings out the best in Dogos.
According to the Dogo Argentino Club of America, they are used in Argentina to track and capture wild boars, mountain lions, and feral pigs.
Dedicated hunters even outfit them with special protective gear to allow them to enter the fray while staying safe.
So a walk around the block is unlikely to satisfy his desire to run and wrestle.
Now it’s time for the fight! Let’s see, who would win?! A pitbull or a Dogo Argentino?
There are numerous differences between the pitbull and the Dogo Argentino. The Dogo Argentino, for example, grows taller and heavier than the average Pitbull.
While both of these dogs are extremely muscular and powerful, the Dogo Argentino’s body is less compact than the stocky Pitbull’s.
In many ways, the Dogo Argentino and Pitbull have very similar behaviors. Both breeds are attentive, protective, and vigilant of their families.
They both need a serious and experienced owner to properly train them and ensure that they do not develop too many issues with strangers or other dogs.
While both dogs make excellent companions, the Pitbull is considered to be slightly goofier than the Dogo Argentino.
Mainly this fight will depend on each individual, for example, if we are talking about a fighting pit bull, a well-trained and inexperienced Dogo Argentino,
it is clear that the pit bull will win this fight, even if it is smaller. But if both dogs are trained in the same way, the situation will change.
A pit bull might lose to a Dogo Argentino.
A working hunting Dogo that catches hogs and cougars will DEFINITELY beat a pit bull.
People are less familiar with Dogos Argentinos because pit bulls are much more popular, but every neighborhood has a few pits, and many make national news for their aggressive ways.
If these breeds really wanted to fight, it wouldn’t be pretty, but the Dogo would probably win due to size.
Besides ignorance, I can only assume the reason they believe the Pit Bull would win is the fact that Pit Bulls certainly never give up and would most definitely not go out without a fight.
However, I tend to tip the scales in favor of the Dogo Argentino! What do you think?
