The Cordoba Fighting Dog is an extinct breed of fighting dog. The Cordoba was a crossbreed of the Boxer, Bulldog, Bull Terrier, and the English Mastiff. The Dogo Argentino is directly derived from this breed.
The Cordoba Fighting Dog originated in Córdoba, Argentina. It was noted for its willingness to fight to the death and its high pain tolerance. In addition, many members of this breed died in the dog fighting pits, contributing to the breed's extinction. The Cordoba was capable of hunting in a small pack of a male and female; otherwise it was likely to turn on its packmates.
