Standard Dogo Argentino
Skull: Compact, convex in the front to back and transverse direction.
FACIAL REGION: As long as the skull, which means that the line that joins the two ---------is at the same distance from the -----------
EYES: Dark or hazel coloured, protected by lids with black pigmentation. Almond-shaped, set at medium height, the distance between them must be wide. The expression should be alert and lively, but at the same time remarkably firm.
JAWS: Jaws strong and well adapted; no under-or overshot mouth. Teeth big, well developed, firmly implanted in line.
NOSE strongly black pigmented with a slight stop on its end, wide nostrils.
EARS: High and laterally inserted, set well apart due to the width of the skull. Functionally, they should be cropped and erect, in triangular shape.
LIPS: Moderately thick, short and tight. With free edges, preferably with black pigmentation. A short lip is demanded so that when the dog is biting its prey it can also breath from the OCCIPUCIO.
NECK: Of medium length, strong and erect, well muscled, with a slightly convex upper line. Truncated cone-shaped, it joins the head in a muscular arch which hides all bony prominence in this part, and fits to the thorax in a large base. It is covered by a thick and elastic skin that freely slips over the subcutaneous tissue which is a bit laxer than on the rest of the body. It has non-pendent smooth folds at the height of the throat, a fundamental trait for the function of the animal. The coat in this part is slightly longer than on the rest of the body.
HEIGHT: 60 to 65 cm
WEIGHT: 40 TO 45 kg
CHEST: Broad and deep. Large thorax providing maximum respiratory capacity, with long and moderately curved ribs which join the breastbone at the height of the elbow line. BACK: Large and strong, with fully developed muscles.
BACK: large and strong, with fully developed muscles.
THORAX: wide, seen from the side is lower edge overflows the elbows.
SPINAL COLUMN: higher in the back and leaning towards the haunch in a slight slope. In adult dogs, when the muscular development from the back and the kidneys is good, if seen from a side, they look like sillones and present a medium size channel alongside the spine; all this given by the prominence of the spinal muscles.
HANDS: straight with short, sturdy, very tight toes.
KIDNEY: faded away by the dorsal muscles.
TAIL: Set medium high, with 45° angle to the upper line. Sabre- shaped, thick and long. When the dog is in action, it is slightly raised over the upper line and constantly moving sidewards like when they show their happiness to their owners. It is preferred that the tail does not reach the paw.
COAT: Completely white; only one black or dark coloured patch around the eye or in the head in front of the ears may be admitted. Any other patch in the rest of the body must be disqualified. Dogs with a white coat having the skin with strong black pigmentation must be considered as a specimen not able for breeding because of the recessive character they show which can become predominant in its offspring if the mother has the same defect.
DISQUALIFYING FAULTS: Nose without pigmentation. Over-or undershot mouth. Light blue eyes. Patches in the body coat. Pendulous lips. Lack of body proportion.
