Molossers, and working dogs of the world with ancient roots.
Yep! The CDAE in Spain, is promoting the true working Alano, are very meticulous with the character and behavior of the working Alano capabilities,
Most of the serious breeders can be reach at this group, obviously some are not serious, since it is a facebook group,
Many people are working with the Spanish Dogge, which is taken from the dogge type dogs from the Alano Litters, the Villano de las Encartaciones, was the cross between the Chato (Spanish bulldog) with villanos shepherd dogs, so, the recovery from the Alano, was created with this dogs and southern working alanos found in the Spanish Bulls ranchs, and some bitches in Extremadura, and Nieve (snow) a white dogo argentino.
Ivan H Plauchu thank you for that explanation. The recreation/preservation of any breed is a serious undertaking and I wish the breeders the greatest success. The Alano Espanol is a powerful molosser and well worthy of recovery.
In a general note - I do not spend time on FaceBook hence why I keep paying in money and time for this site. I do have an account on FB but only use it for the login credentials on here if someone wants to login with FB. I am trying to keep this site about serious dog enthusiasts and the Molossers.
I am happy you are here and posting such wonderful and historic information.

Hello Molosser Fans,
I have often wrestled with this question since we do have some working dogs at home with goats and chickens. Working dogs are demanding animals and require much care and attendance to stay in condition and do their job. They are rustic and healthy but still require good diet, vaccination, grooming to remove debri from their coast and constant vigilance to ensure they do not hurt some unsuspecting person... They can defend against criminals, burglars, and trespassers all they like.
So let's hear your thoughts - are working dogs still necessary in urban and suburban households where they really do not have a job? Or should only people with space for them to roam and do their jobs keep these awesome animals? Let's hear your thoughts please.
