Dogo's Argentino's

Main reason why they're not used on hogs as often in the US is because of their price tag: $1000-2000 per pup! Hopefully they may be going down in price soon because the same thing happened to the American Bulldog breed..now you can get a dog for $300. You still will have to run bay dogs with the dogos because they do not bark on track or bark when they see hogs. Basically they're running catch dogs. It's better if you try pit bulls. They're cheaper. I would love to own a dogo some day but a lot of American bloodlines of dogos don't hunt..I know of maybe two people who actually hunt with their dogos. Be cautious about buying a dogo. Same thing with american bulldogs. I've had quite a few have temperment problems or simply be too big to be able to work a hog properly or overheat due to the shortness of the muzzles. I had to weed thru a few. Now I don't have any catch dogs.
