Best Dog for Preppers: The Dogo Argentino

Dogo argentino en el monte.
Hello Mr. Aguirre,
I just finished reading your book and found it very insightful and informative without the usual "panic." Thank you for writing it.
One thing on my mind is to have a pair of Dogo Argentinos for companion and
protection with the added ability to raise some puppies for sale those who would like them. Here in the States I can only find breeders in the US and Canada. Unfortunately those breeders concentrate on show dogs which are bred to be docile. I had Bullmastiff who looked fierce but was a total whimp.... I'd like to contact a few breeders in Argentina was wondering if you'd be willing to help me in this area.
Have a great day and thanks in advance,
Joe

Hello Joe,
As I wrote in my book “The Modern Survival Manual: Surviving the Economic Collapse”, I really do like the Dogo Argentino. In my opinion it’s the perfect dog for someone looking for a multitask work dog, especially for someone living out in the country. This is a dog that will hunt large game, defend the property, but most of all defend the family from both men and beast. When it comes to courage and ferocity when it counts, no other dog compares to the Dogo Argentino. Other dogs will bark when they detect and intruder in the house. The Dogo will stalk and attack. Dogo Argentinos kill home invaders all the time in Argentina. Its mentioned in the news often. A small lap dog may be easier to care for, but a Dogo can actually keep you safe when going for a walk.
I wouldn’t worry much about buying Dogo Argentinos in USA. There’s some people already breeding them in America and using them for what they are supposed to be used, which is hunting wild boar. Having said that, if you want the best of the best then yes, go to Argentina and visit the Nores family in Cordoba, who are the family that originally created the Dogo Argentino and are still very much passionate about it. It wasn’t that long ago that one of their Dogos, “Morocho”, killed a puma (cougar) protecting a couple small girls of the family.

Joe,
I train dogs in the U.S.
I briefly met a dogo from the kennel below. It was very friendly, strong, and muscular. A friend of mine trained him in obedience and was impressed.
Good luck with your search!
