These dogs are friendly and loving towards all members of the family. They are alert and make very good watch/guard dogs. They have a dense and shiny coat that is found in a variety of colours.
They are found in different colour combinations. Common colour combination for these dogs are black, white and brown.

The Dogue Brasileiro dogs are a perfect mix between a Bull terriers courage and a Boxer's docility. They are obedient, loyal and even-tempered dogs that get along well with small children. They are eager to please dogs that are not aggressive unless they sense a genuine threat. They are a great choice as family pet and watch/guard dogs.
This breed is moderate shedder and would require average brushing in their short-haired coat.
They are very easy to train dogs. They should learn fast.
