There are three basic types of people who fight dogs. .
.

Street fighters: are those who fights are usually unorganized, conducted for money, drugs, or bragging rights. .
.

Hobbyists: are those who fight dogs for supplemental income and entertainment purposes. .
.

Professionals: are those who breed fighting dogs over generations for the sport and pride of their dogs. They are organized and strict in the unwritten rules of the sport. They usually keep to themselves and are normal people living amongst you. .

Note: I’ve been asked several times if I’m a dog fighter. The answer is NO! I do not participate in this world, I’m simply relaying the information for others to know and understand. .

In Kabul, Afghanistan dog fighting is semi-legal. Years ago the Taliban banned the sport and deemed it Haram (sinful, in Islamic terms) but the sport is back and watched by many, as large crowds continue to flock to fights.

.
.

Although it’s seen by many as a cruel and unusual sport, the Police don’t seem to mind it much and in fact tolerate it but they can’t be seen to be encouraging it.

.
.

A possible reason why dog fights have become popular once again in Afghanistan is since fighting dogs are were an important part of their lives and history, when the Taliban enforced their regime over them, they took away many liberties that the Afghans had. So in a way fighting dogs shows the progress from the Taliban years, when so many liberties were banned.

Historical accounts of dog fighting in the US …

Historical accounts of dog fighting in the US can be dated back a hundred or more years before the Civil War began but the betting and spectator sport of dog fighting would take off shortly after the Civil War ended. As immigrants made their way from England and Ireland to start a new life in America, they brought over with them dogs that were already flourishing in an underground fighting world after Bull and Bear baiting became illegal in the 1830’s.

.
.

Many of these dogs would eventually be crossbred to other game terriers to create the ultimate fighter: the American Pit Bull Terrier.
With many professional pits proliferating the America’s in the 1860’s, ironically dog fighting grew and continued to flourish well into the 20th century as a common entertainment with widespread support from the general public as well as elected officials and police officers and firemen with the “Police Gazette” serving as a major source of information into dog fighting for many years thereafter.

.
.

With concerns about the inhumanness of dogfighting most states would eventually outlaw the activity and criminally incriminate those that did not stop. Henry Bergh, founder of the ASPCA, would spearhead this endeavor as he was repulsed by the brutality of the dog fighting he saw in New York and elsewhere. He would revise the states animal cruelty law in 1867 which would make all forms of animal fighting illegal for the first time, including bull, bear, dog and cock fighting.

.
.

The sad but definite truth was the involvement of police officials in dog fighting activity and this was one of the reasons Bergh sought and received authority for the ASPCA at the time to have arrest powers for his own humane law enforcement agents to enforce these tough new laws.

It’s possibly safe to say that dog fighting started even before then considering mankind’s idea of entertainment.

The next posts will be dedicated to Dog fighting, the dogs that came from it and it’s history. Some may not want to agree but at a point in history, dog fighting was considered a sport and highly respected.

In a recent post I stated my opinion that the Argentine Dogo is not a MASTIFF. This isn’t a diss to the creators (the Martinez family) nor am I trying to disenfranchise anyone about the breed. In fact this is one of the few breeds that was created in recent times that is functional and PURPOSE DRIVEN and I truly like. As @hbains707 commented in my post, “I don’t think he (Dr. Martinez) intended any labels” I agree!

.

.

These were the breeds that influenced the DOGO to become the breed it is today. POINTER, BOXER, BULL TERRIER, BULLDOG, IRISH WOLFHOUND, DOGUE DE BORDEAUX, GREAT PYRENEES, GREAT DANE and the FIGHTING DOG of CORDOBA.

.

.

With that many breeds and less than half being “MASTIFF” (Bordeaux for their strength, Great Dane hunting ability and size, Great Pyrenees for size and it’s white color & Irish Wolfhound for its size and hunting ability) technically in terms of percentage, this mixture wouldn’t make it half a Mastiff, let alone a full blown Mastiff breed.

.

.

It is important to point out that the Fighting Dog of Cordoba (extinct today) was a breed established in Argentina and was its main ingredient to produce the DOGO. It was a mixture of Mastiff, Bulldog, Bull terrier and Boxer.

.

.

With Boxer, Bull terrier and Bulldog to add tenacity and go. Pointer and Irish Wolfhound adding the nose and hunting ability. If anything the Dogo is more of a Hunting/Coursing dog bred for extreme hunting rather than a cumbersome Mastiff.

.
.

If you make it down this far, thank you for reading as this is my opinion and I would be open to hear anyone’s comments about it.

The debate will rage on of the true origin of the #Mastiff breed. Their will also be those that don’t agree on what colors are acceptable. This MASTIFF doesn’t usually come in the color above but some devotees of the breed might differ.

Name the breed…..
