I think a dogo would be much larger and taller. Dogos only come with black noses. A red nose would be a fault. Lips and eyes are supposed to be black pigmented. I will say that this dog has a much thicker and heavier tail than Reggin.

I love dogos. They are on my list of breeds to own some day, along with 15 other breeds. LOL.

It isn't pure as the tail is too thick. Looks like a pit/lab mix.

I wouldn't use tail thickness to judge a dog to be pure or not, especially in this breed. Out of the show ring, they aren't bred for a tail preference really.


He looks pure to me. I have seen many that look exactly like him that I know to be pure. Obviously, not from AKC/UKC lines. He is gorgeous, and I see no reason to assume he is mixed with anything else.

Breed standard goes right down the drain when people do not breed to standard. There is a chow next door with floppy ears, yet he is pure bred. Chihuahuas completely lose their apple head when bred improperly. I can go on and on....

Thats the reason why it can be so hard to tell weather a dog is pure bred or not. With all the bybs we have now days.

I'd say some sort of 'pit bull', although it's always hard to pin it down to an APBT specifically. But it's definitely possible. However, I believe labeling him a "pit bull" would be precise.

Yep, i have seen some way thick tailed pitties. Not winners in the show ring for sure, but they count as pit bulls.

APBT mix. Possibly Plabrador. The fur on the neck and tail is thicker than the norm.
