Bio:
Cao de Fila de Sao Miguel's THIS IS NOT A BREED THAT SHOULD BE IN A TYPICAL PET HOME!! THEY ARE WORKING DOGS! They are a rare breed that come from the Azores in Portugal. There are not many breeders in North America yet. All dogs are brindled and range from very light gray/beige from orange to very dark and many have a white area on their chest. Normally their ears are cropped rounded, very cute look actually, but mine are not cropped. They are extremely smart, high energy, very versatile workers, supposed to be wary of strangers and need LOTS of proper socializing with people and animals if you hope to avoid issues there. They need a clear leader or they WILL run the house and often become a danger when with people who are not willing to do a lot of regular training as well as give them some sort of job to do. They naturally have aggressive tendencies and their herding instincts are VERY strong. Once you can prove to them that you are the pack leader though, they willingly do as you ask and are always happy to learn new things. You most definitely need a balanced approach when it comes to training these dogs, they will not tolerate un fairness and they will also become pushy if you throw food at them for everything.
