Red face The other Fila

This is one of my all-time favourite breeds. They are a cattle dog from Portugal, and though if I had one, I would never crop or dock it, their traditional crops give them such character!

Fila Sao Miguel (Azores Cattle Dog)

The official breed name is Cao de Fila de Sao Miguel, or easier, Azores Cattle Dog.

Beautiful dogs, though I don't like the way the ears are cropped.

The ears are... interesting. But they are beautiful.

They do kinda look like teddy bear ears, though I always think of Hyenas when I see them, their brindle colouring, ears, and tail are all very hyena like.

I think of Hyenas, too.

Interesting looking breed. Never met one.

The ears are cropped to make them look like a teddy bear?

I think it is ADORABLE!

Yes I have - one won uor Molosser olympics 2 years ago and our PP trainer in Canada breeds them-
VERY TOUGH dogs - If I was to own a personal protection sport dog that would be the breed.

Because they could live in a pack of my CAS and work with the sheep.
