    I thought I would post a link to the dogs 101 video in case any Dogo lovers haven't seen it yet.

    Apparently there was a little embellishment by AP but the story as told by Marcello Fernandez (close friend of the family in the video and one of the most respected Dogo breeders: De Calfucura - Dogo Cazador - Dogoman) on one of the Dogo Forums was that Morocho did not actually kill the puma but kept it pinned until one the girl's father was able to come and dispatch it with a knife. Still very impressive.

    Morocho from the video is the sire of my pup Tango. Not many pumas in NYC luckily!

    Wow he must have top knotch bloodlines. Did he arrive by plane, or did you go and retrieve him?

    His mother was knocked up in Argentina and someone imported her to the US. I was going to import one from Marcelo but the opportunity to get one of Morocho's pups came up so I jumped at the chance.

    Unfortunately, I was told that Morocho died recently in a hunting accident. Fortunately he has lots of pups to carry forward his legacy.

    Wow, as if I wasn't already interested in Dogos, this video made me want to jump in the middle of a pack of Dogo pups!! The pups are absolutely adorable, and the adults are completely stunning! I'm going to do more research and see if there are any good breeders, rescues, or owners nearby that would let me meet a few Dogos...

    I'm in North Texas, south of Dallas. I think there are three or four breeders around here (within a few hour radius).

    Our family dynamic is not ideal for a Dogo at this time (hence our DDB puppy), but when we're done having little babies and can be more active and outdoorsy as a family with our dogs, we definitely want to add a Dogo to our family. Hopefully we're out in the country by then......
