    And another Mastiff of the Alani people also known as Alangu Mastiff, or ancient type of Bully Kutta.
    The typical traits are loose & wrinkled skin, in general very thick. A broad head type and a strong built dog.

    Famtastic! They are much better fighters than Tosas. They never lay down on the floor to rest and they can fight very long in extreme heat.
    This is the perfect Mastiff, the ancient Alani Mastiff:

    Here is a link that has some Tosas in it. The smaller ones have greater endurance and gameness than the larger variety.

    Nice info bro!
    Strange that all the pictures are gone. I will try to attach a new one to the opening post here.

  • Alano-Espanol, Spanish-Bulldog, Alaunt-de-Boucherie, Butchers` Mastiff

    We have often heard (I mean most of us here) that beside the "Alaunt de Boucherie", there also existed a smaller version of the Alaunt de Boucherie (not much smaller, but more agile and athletic) exclusively bred for Bullbaiting. (For example the Bulldogue du Midi in France, some Alanos in Spain etc,)
    In my opinion this type of Bulldog used as baiting dog is the ancestor of all "Bulldog type fighting dogs" of nowadays, including the apbt. These fearess dogs are the ancestrors of most western fighting breeds and still could be used as elite figheters brAlano Espanol (the heavy type) -The remaining Spanish Bulldog "The Alano" is a living example of an Alaunt de Boucherie and could be used for dog on dog combat too! A dog used to attck a way more dangerous animal (a raging bull) would be a more than tough opponent for any fighting breed in the wiorld, as they never give up and have incredible power & endurance!
    Bull baiting, the long-practiced sport in which bully-type dogs were sent to attempt to bait and eventually bring down a tethered bull, evokes images of gruesome exhibitions staged for public amusement. As bull baiting grew in popularity, it led to the development of the Bulldog, which remains one of the most popular breeds. When bull baiting was banned, the resulting popularity of dog fighting led to the development of the pit bull terrier.

    In his book, British Dogs (Collins, 1955), canine authority A. Croxton Smith writes, “That this brutal pastime gave pleasure to the spectators is obvious, but it is not certain that that was the primary object.” If we delve beneath its shocking premise, bull baiting reveals quite a bit about our changing perceptions of dogs.

    Bull baiting beginnings
    In The Book of the Dog (Nicholson and Watson, 1948) author Brian Vesey-Fitzgerald states, “The remarkable thing is that bull baiting did not begin as a sport at all. It was once illegal to slaughter a bull unless it had first been baited with dogs.” Historians agree that bull baiting evolved from the belief that prolonged exertion rendered tough meat tender and palatable. In 1655, English naturalist and physician Thomas Muffett explained, in the posthumously published book Health’s Improvement, that “violent heat and motion might attenuate [the bulls’] blood, resolve their hardness, and make the flesh soften in digestion.”

    Bull baiting was codified into law in a Cambridge ordinance in 1376 forbidding the sale of meat from bulls that were not “baited,” meaning they were fed with grass in a stall. This interpretation actually would have made some sense if the law was meant to guarantee quality meat for sale.

    Smith theorized that the term “bull baiting,” which originally referred to the practice of keeping bulls stabled and feeding them grass and hay, was later misinterpreted and an alternate definition became generally accepted. Bull baiting’s popularity may have also derived from practical necessity. Tainted meat was a perpetual hazard. Therefore, it’s understandable that potential consumers preferred to observe the town butcher slaughter an animal, which included baiting the bull, to ensure the meat’s quality.

    From practical use to sport
    Centuries later, it’s impossible to separate fact from legend, but there is no question that many people enjoyed watching bull baiting. In her book, 1700: Scenes from London Life (Sceptre, 2001), Maureen Waller writes, “[Sixteenth century] Londoners had a taste for cruel and ferocious sport, which reflected their own lives: nasty, brutish and short.” By 1500, bull baiting had progressed from a local food-safety ordinance to Britain’s national pastime.

    At first, any sturdy farm dog was considered suitable. This included ancestors of modern sheepdogs, mastiffs and bulldogs. The ancestors of the mastiff-type dogs, called alauntes, were said to be good for baiting bulls.

    Bull baiting dogs, including bulldogs and bull and terriers, were bred to bait animals, mainly bulls and bears. During bull-baiting the dog would attempt to flatten itself to the ground, creeping as close to the bull as possible, then darting out and attempting to bite the bull in the nose or head area. The bull would often be tethered by a collar and rope which was staked into the ground. As the dog darted at the bull, the bull would attempt to catch the dog with his head and horns and throw it into the air.

    In 1835, the Cruelty to Animals Act was passed in Parliament that outlawed "Blood Sport" in the United Kingdom.The bulldog's work was suddenly over and the bulldog rapidly started dying out. Around 1865 dog fanciers began developing dog clubs which eventually culminated into conformation shows. Many fanciers utilized various remnants of the dog utilized for "Blood Sport" to resurrect the "Bull" dog and ultimately developed today's modern English bulldog.

    What an epic battle between these young talents!

    Hamilton & Leclerc after the GP of Silverstone. Click on the small pic & it will enlarge:

  • Leclerc vs Vettel -Will Leclerc already defeat Vettel in his first year for Ferrari, although Vettel has more support by their boss Binotto?

    In general without the technical failure in Bahrain where Charles Leclerc was so much faster than even the Mercedes (Hamilton there said, the victory should have belonged to Leclerc and not to him) and without the three team orders at the beginning of the seaon and with the big mistake by Ferrari that they didn´t let out Leclerc in time for Q3, we must honestly say that he would have scored more points than Vettel right from the start.
    But now since France Leclerc always is inbetween 6 tens or more than 8 tens quicker in qualifying than Vettel, so I guess sooner or later this year, Leclerc will be ahead of Vettel, so what is your guess?
    I mean we have to keep in mind that Vettel is a four time world champion and Leclerc a rookie and Vettel still gets more support by Ferrari (number one status due to Binotti)...but now still Leclerc scores better in each race since the GP of France.
    So Leclerc´s speed is amazing; especially his pace in qualifying is stunning since the GP of Le Castellet.

    Just watch his pole lap and track record from Austria:

    Leclerc ignores teamorder and overtakes Vettel

    Just click on this link:

    Charles Leclerc dodged a team order by passing his number 1 teammate Sebastian Vettel in Bahrain.

    Just before mounting the overtake of the sister Ferrari, the 21-year-old dubbed "golden boy" by the Italian press said on the radio: "Guys, I'm quicker".

    His engineer replied that he should wait at least two laps.

    "Then on the next straight I had the opportunity to go for it, so I went for it," said Monaco-born Leclerc.

    Leclerc: ""It's always a tricky situation when you fight your teammate because the risks are very high," he said.

    "They warn you before the race to please be careful with your teammate, but I had the opportunity and I didn't hesitate."

    Leclerc would have easily won today without the technical problem and the loss of 200 horse power. Hamilton even said to him, "This should have been your victory." He was so much faster than Vettel and all the other drivers.
    Still a great achievement to be third with 200 horsepower less, than the others!
    Hamilton told him that the victory should have belonged to him.
