Guatemalan Bull Terrier

The Guatemalan Bull Terrier is also known as Dogo Guatemalteco. It originated in Guatemala in 1930s and is still an unknown and rather rare breed outside its country of origin. Though Dogo Argentino or/and Pitbull Terrier may appear as this dog's progenitors due to its stark resemblance to both breeds, the dogs are actually the result of cross combination between Dalmatians, Dogue de Bordeaux, Boxer, Bull Terriers and fighting dogs of Cordova. With this ancestry, the dog has a courageous, protective nature and is an excellent protector of its family and possessions. Its protective and guarding instincts are one of the reasons for its popularity among crime-hit Guatemala people who keep this dog an a first line of defense against intruders.

This dog comes with a large and square head and square muzzle. Ears can be left naturally pendant style or cropped to give a Doberman or Boxer look to this dog. This dog has a smooth and dense, harsh to touch coat that comes in mostly white colouring with or without black patches on eyes and on head. It stands between 22-24 inches and weighs between 55-79 lbs.

This breed is NOT recognized by AKC.
