The Rastreador Brasileiro, or Brazilian Tracker, is a breed of dog that is native to Brazil. The breed is descended from the Spanish Mastiff and was used in Brazil for hunting large game such as jaguars and wild boars. The Rastreador Brasileiro nearly became extinct in the early 1900s due to a lack of interest in hunting large game. However, the breed was saved by a few dedicated breeders and has since become popular in Brazil and other parts of South America. The Rastreador Brasileiro is recognized by the Federação Cynologique Internationale and the United Kennel Club.
