Fila Brasileiro

Average: 5 (2 votes)

Also known as the Brazilian Mastiff, the breed was developed in Brazil as a large working dog. Their tendency towards aggression has made this breed illegal in the United Kingdom, Norway, and Israel, along with being restricted in Australia. The large Fila Brasileiro stand at 23 to 29 inches and weighs between 90 and 110 pounds. The extreme aggression and guarding temper of this breed make owners far and few.




Pet quality puerrbeds have flaws that the judge would count against them. It could be the head shape, the length of body to legs, wrong coloring, wrong size (undersize as well as too large), or any of a thousand other things. The chance of two of them having a show quality pup is pretty low since both are going to be passing on the faults they have in them. I wouldn't count on it happening.
