The Cordoba Fighting Dog is a breed of dog that is now extinct. The Cordoba was a crossbreed of Mastiff, Bull Terrier, and Old English Bulldog.It became extinct around 1940s when the Dogo Argentino became more popular.
The Cordoba Fighting Dog originated in Cordoba, Argentina. The breed had such strong gameness toward other dogs that the males and females would rather fight than mate. In addition, many members of this breed died in the dog fighting pits and it became replaced by the more efficient Dogo Argentino,contributing to the breed's extinction.
The Cordoba was the base breed used for the Dogo Argentino. The breeding program started with 12 bitches deemed "The Nucleus" by Dr. Nores,the breed Founder. This breed was capable of hunting in a small pack of a male and female, otherwise they were more likely to turn on their packmates. The Dogo Argentino was more efficient than its predecessor in the dogfighting ring and hunting large game, mainly wild boar, peccary, jaguar, and pumas in the Pampas.
