The Cimarron Uruguayo is a dog native of Uruguay and are today traditionally known for their round shaped ear crop that resembles the ears of a Puma, an animal they once hunted.
.

The Uruguayan government sent in the military to help eradicate the breed that was once destroying farms, livestock and intimidating many of the people that lived in the rural areas.
.

The breed hunted pumas and cougars in the jungles of Uruguay so much so that they almost decimated the animal from the area.
.

Although the Cimarron Uruguayo is not currently recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC), for the betterment of the breed it appears it will be recognized anytime in the near future. FCI and UKC recognition have greatly increased the Cimarron Uruguayo’s international profile.
.

Cimarron Uruguayo remain a relatively rare breed, especially outside of Uruguay although the breed is increasing in popularity. Unlike most of the modern breeds today, the Cimarron Uruguayo remains primarily a working dog, a true breed of purpose.
