I have 2 Brasilian Mastiffs ( fila brasileiros )
They are used as hunting dogs because they are vicious , aggressive and quick.
They were used to herd sheep , hunt , track , and helped their owners hunt for food.
We have 2 in a large rach and my fathers house , since they cant be walked on the street without passing an exam.
Since they are very tempermental and aggresive they have been banned in several countries , but you find very few even in Brazil.
We got them both when they were babies , and trained them to respect us , and gave them alot of love , both are big goof balls , and are extremely afraid of our pomeranian who loves to bite them <_<.
This breed was used to hunt down slaves during the slave trade <_<.
Male : 75cm and 60 kilos
He has pretty grey eyes.
Female :68 cm and 59 kilos
She has stripes around her body , looks like a tiger
Both are amazing dogs , and were well trained , they only let certain people pet and play with them such as me , my father , step mother , and little sister
If my grandmother attempts to get close they may throw her on the floor , but not bite
They almost caught a robber who entered our ranch last summer , the guy had to jump the fence and still barely got away.
They are only about a year old each , the female being older , so i expect them to get bigger and heavier.
Even though the breed is aggressive they still havent learned to play , so they love to jump on strangers and lick them to death , but since most run away or get scared easily they really depends on us to have some fun with them.
2 Years ago thanks to them i had to get a new wardrobe after they ripped most of my clothes <_< but they are pretty cool dogs.
Love them botht o death and love my little pomeranian too
