BRIEF HISTORICAL SUMMARY

:
FCI
The origin of the CIMARRÓN URUGUAYO is uncertain. It is known to be descended from the dogs introduced by the Spanish and Portuguese conquerors.
These dogs left in the country crossed among themselves. Natural selection had as a result that only the fitter, the stronger and more clever individuals survived. This is how the Cimarrón was born.
The inhabitants of the time, recognizing the value of these dogs, domesticated them and progressively began to use them successfully as guards of their estates and as herding dogs in their daily work with cattle.
UKC
The origin of the Cimarron Uruguayo is uncertain, though it is thought to be descended from dogs that were brought into Uruguay by the Spanish and Portuguese conquerors. The dogs that were left behind bred amongst themselves, and only the fittest survived. Eventually, the people of the region recognized the value of the dogs and domesticated them for use as guard, herding and big game hunting dogs. The Cimarron Uruguayo was recognized by the United Kennel Club in 2006.
