The Dogo Cubano is a large, muscular breed of dog that originated in Cuba. It is a cross between the Cuban Mastiff and the American Bulldog. The Dogo Cubano has a short, thick coat that can be white, black, or brindle in color. Its head is broad and its muzzle is short and wide. Its ears are small and its eyes are dark brown.

The Dogo Cubano has an average lifespan of 10 to 12 years and can reach up to 30 inches in height at the shoulder. It typically weighs between 70 to 90 pounds when fully grown.

The Dogo Cubano has a loyal personality and loves being around people. It is an intelligent breed that loves to please its owners and will do anything for them if asked nicely. This breed also loves playing with other dogs as well as children, making it an ideal family pet.

The Dogo Cubano is very friendly with other dogs, cats, children, and other animals if properly socialized from an early age. This breed does have a strong prey drive so it should not be left alone with smaller animals such as rabbits or guinea pigs unless supervised closely by an adult human companion at all times.

The temperament of the Dogo Cubano can vary depending on how it was raised but generally speaking they are gentle giants who love spending time with their families but can also be protective when needed due to their natural guard dog instincts. They are not aggressive towards strangers unless provoked or threatened in some way which makes them great watchdogs for homes with children or elderly people living inside them too!

When it comes to health issues the Dogo Cubano does not suffer from any major health problems but like all breeds they may suffer from hip dysplasia or eye problems such as cataracts if not bred responsibly by reputable breeders who screen their breeding stock for these conditions before mating them together!

In terms of adaptability level this breed does well both indoors and outdoors although they do need plenty of exercise so having access to a large yard would be beneficial for this type of pup! The benefits of owning one of these pups include having a loyal companion who will always have your back no matter what life throws at you plus they make great watchdogs too!


The Dogo Cubano is a large, white, short-haired dog that originated in Cuba. The breed is also known as the Cuban Mastiff, the Cuban Dogo, and the Havana Bloodhound. It is believed that the Dogo Cubano is a cross between the English Mastiff and the Spanish Alano. The Dogo Cubano was used in Cuba for hunting wild boar and for guarding livestock.
