These elegant strong breed of dogs are originally from Spain; hence, why they are also often referred to by their more common dog breed name of Spanish Bulldog. The Alano Espanol have quite a austere presence to them because of there size, speed and strong chests. They definitely are very fit dogs with good muscle strength and athletic build for fast running.
The Alano Espanol have a beautiful short thick coat and a litter can sport a variety of colours including brindle, fawn, yellow and even world gray. The eyes and face are definitely bulldog similar but the stout seems to be more prominent.
Like most bull dogs the Alanos dog breed were bred for hunting and tracking down slaves. Because of the Spanish location they were also used during bullfights. During the 1960s when bullfighting became illegal the demand for Alanos Espanol dog breed died out giving concern that they may have become instinct.
Given the long history of the Alanos Espanol as a warrior dog anyone considering having one as a pet needs to assess carefully their ability to run the dog everyday. The amount of energy this dog breed can expend is quite incredible, and not harnessed nor released in a healthy way creates quite a frustrated big doggie.
If you do want a loyal strong friend than the Alano Espanol is the dog breed for you. Ofcourse when the dog is fully grown it will require a large dog collar. Some of the smaller Alano Espanol dogs will fit a medium dog collar and it’s always good to measure the dog collar size required first.
