Can anyone identify the breeds in the picture and possibly where it came from? I have an idea but I’m not 💯 sure since I don’t know anything but that I found it on the net….

With over 900 years of fighting in its pedigree, the Tosa we see today began looking nothing like it does today. The breed had a humbling beginning resembling an Akita style dog (spitz type with a curled tail). In the 19th and 20th century with the introduction of Mastiff, Bulldogs, Bull Terrier, Great Dane and Saint Bernard from Westerners to name a few shaped the breed to its present type.

Japanese Tosa fights are unlike other dog fights as the rules are the same as Sumo Wrestling. Dogs are expected to stay silent throughout the match with growls, barks and whimpers frowned upon leading to disqualification. The object in Japanese dog fights is to not harm the other dog but to dominate the opponent and pin them down, with any noticeable wounds ending the fight, again similar to Sumo wrestling. This is a reason many Sumo wrestlers are attendance in fights to watch and learn new moves from the dogs.

.
.

What may sound weird to the Western world, isn’t to the Japanese as dog fighting a family outing for some. No permits or licenses are required to fight dogs, so there’s no official record of how many fights happen each year. Their are associations like the East Japan Dog Fighting Association which holds eight or nine tournaments per year, fighting between 60 and 100 dogs in a small tournaments with larger tournaments numbering as high as 250. In Katsurahama beach in the Kōchi Prefecture of Japan one can find the Tosa fighting dog museum.

The smallest mammal, the bumblebee bat, is thought to live 5 to 10 years, while the largest mammal the blue whale, lives for 80 to 90 years. This seems to be the exact opposite when it comes to dogs, another mammal species.

.

Larger dogs age at an accelerated pace, where they grow and gain weight to almost its full size by the time their a year old. Yes a small dog would mature at the same rate but the stress on the body (weight) at around 100 fold from birth to young adult in a Mastiff as compared to 10 fold in a Yorkie is a huge difference between large and smaller breeds

.
.

Larger dogs are also more prone to health issues like developmental disorders, musculoskeletal and gastrointestinal diseases, and tumors—all of which are also linked to their accelerated growth and appear to be the nasty side effects of selective breeding for large size over a short period of time.

The Swiss Confederation controlled the German …

The Swiss Confederation controlled the German city of Rottweil from 1463 to 1803, and the herding dog now known as the Rottweiler derived from tri-colored Swiss dogs that were also used to create the St. Bernard. You can say that the Rottweiler is more related to the St. Bernard than it would be to any other German breed. (Boxer, Dobe, Great Dane)

.
.

The myth that a Brandy barrel was carried on a St. Bernard’s neck is false. The monks of the St. Bernard Hospice deny that any St. Bernard has ever carried casks or small barrels around their necks; they attribute the image to an 1820 painting by Edwin Landseer, where an Alpine Mastiffs Reanimated a Distressed Traveler (which became a popular engraving in 1831 by Charles Landseer).

.
.

The name “St. Bernard" was not in widespread use until the middle of the 19th century. “Saint Dogs”, “Noble Steeds”, “Alpenmastiff”, or “Barry Dogs” we’re common names before that time with Barry dogs being given for the famous St. Bernard who was credited with saving more than 40 lives during his lifetime.

.
.

St. Bernard dogs are no longer used for Alpine rescues with the last recorded instance of a rescue in 1955.

Moscow Watchdog
.
.

In less than 70 years, a military ran kennel in the former Soviet Republic produced more breeds of dogs than any other group in human history. One of those breeds was the MOSCOW WATCHDOG which came about when dog fanciers in the army’s “Red Star kennel" coveted a more even tempered guard dog than they were producing.
.
.

With the foundation a CAUCASIAN OVCHARKA the new breed needed to be domesticated for civilian living. Adding SAINT BERNARD helped to produce a calmer dog while maintaining size and strength. Other additions were the GERMAN SHEPHERD, RUSSIAN WOLFHOUND and the now extinct RUSSIAN HARLEQUIN HOUND. These breeds eventually added the final touch that produced the type of dog that they seek, a perfect servitude dog.
.
.

Today the breed is becoming popular in EUROPE where it is known as a gentle giant, highly patient and extremely tolerable but we mustn’t forget, it’s still a Red Star bred GUARD DOG that will protect its master at all cost.
.
.

Wrap up: this breed can be huge, up to 200lbs. Very hardy and generally a healthy breed with little known ailments. They’re a fair weather breed boding well in most conditions, hotter regions should reconsider. Hip dysplasia is always a concern for any large breed. A plus is that the breed doesn’t salivate as would other Mastiff style dogs.
