The Cordoba Fighting Dog is an extinct breed of fighting dog. The Cordoba was a crossbreed of Alano Español, Mastiff, Bull Terrier, Bulldog and Boxer.. Its temperament includes being very fierce, very aggressive, strong, vigorous, and relentless (high stamina). A male would often kill a female during mating
The Cordoba Fighting Dog originated in Córdoba, Argentina. It was noted for its willingness to fight to the death and its high pain tolerance. In addition, many members of this breed died in the dog fighting pits, contributing to the breed's extinction.
The Cordoba was capable of hunting in a small pack of a male and female; otherwise it was likely to turn on its pack-mates.
The Dogo Argentino is directly derived from this breed. In the 1920s, breeders developed the Dog by crossing the Cordoba Fighting Dog with other breeds such as the Great Dane, Great Pyrenees, Bulldog, Bull Terrier and Dogue de Bordeaux.
