9 thoughts on “2018 Dog Bite Fatality: Back-to-Back Dogo Argentino Attacks, One Fatal, Both with Similar Circumstances and Victims

  1. I did some online research on this breed and what I saw was terrifying. These dogs, like the boerboel, make pit bulls look like beagles. I was also surprised how many of both dogos and boerboels were available on PetFinder given that they are both rare breeds.

  2. One other thought (as someone who used to breed hunting dogs)…when breeding, you take the female to the male’s home (territory), you do not bring the male to the female. The one attack seems to be a case of bringing the male to the female and this results in aggression, usually by the female.

  3. The pics of the dogs covered in blood and attacking some unfortunate unidentifiable animal are chilling. It shows that owners are most interested in the violent capacity of these dogs.

    • I wondered the same thing, whether it was a poor bait animal or if they were turning them loose on wild game. The picture of the two squared off should be enough evidence with the other photos to bring dog fighting charges. You’re right, these people are very interested in the mauling abilities of their dogs.

  4. Horrifying images of the blood stained dogs that sadistic “breeders” are raising as weapons. Also another victim who tragically and naively assumed that these breeds of dogs were safe to be around.

  5. God those dogs are hideous, and that photo with the blood makes me feel sick. Anyone who loves this breed has a screw loose.

  6. Agreed Elizabeth.The mentally deficient people who think this is a desirable trait in dogs are a danger to society.
