Living Area: The Fila isn't suited to apartment life, by virtue of its size alone. Like many large dogs, it isn't particularly energetic but when it needs to exercise, it'll need an abundance of space to be able to do so effectively. The dog is ideal for a country home, or a place on a farm. Open spaces will allow a Fila the freedom that it needs to work its rigid muscular frame. A large home with a closed off yard will suffice, but the owner should be aware that claustrophobic city streets aren't the natural habitat of this particular breed. They aren't well adapted to urban life. Providing the necessary shelter is in place, a Fila will quite happily sleep outdoors.

About this Breed

The Fila Brasileiro is a fiercely loyal and proud dog, with clear indications of bloodhound ancestry in its distinct appearance. It possesses a short, soft coat which is evenly spread over a muscular body. One of the first things you'll notice about the Fila is the large muzzle. It's hard to miss with the heavy upper lips. Breeders take great pride in the skin of the dog, and it is preferred to be hanging loosely from the bulky body. The dog is blessed with a mighty back, and the ability to generate great power, although it isn't in the temperament of the Fila to use it. The back rises up slowly to meet the hindquarters, and the camels gait is seen as one of the unique selling points which distinguish the breed. When in motion, the dog moves forward with both legs on one side, before moving the others. This makes for a distinct walk, and adds to the harsh impression that the dog is lazy or slow off the mark. You can always tell a Fila by its rugged face and angled body. It isn't the most graceful of breeds, but it has a very distinct character and the bone structure separates it as a powerful dog which is impressive to look at. Bitches tend to be less dominant in their posture, and particularly in the professional breeding environment, they are encouraged to display greater feminism. The Fila is brave and will put itself in harm's way to protect not just the owner, but the owner's family too. It is portrayed as an aggressive dog, for which there is good reason, but the Fila can be extremely affectionate too.
