Lua Barao dos Fila, a Fila Brasileiro at 9 months old— "She is from Brazil and complies with the CAFIB standard, which is the oldest, purest and strictest registry for the Fila Brasileiro. As you can see, she has a rare red and white patched coat, an attribute said to be characteristic of some of the oldest fazenda filas. The patched dogs were highly prized as workers in the early years of the twentieth century, and very few true patched lines still remain. In the ’70s some breeders introduced patched coloring from other breeds such as the Great Dane, but CAFIB strives to avoid such bloodlines and crosses. CAFIB also does not condone the increasing practice of breeding the temperament and ojeriza out of the Fila."
