These dogs, in the ancestors of which were bulldogs, mastiffs, burgundy dogs, as well as Spanish Alano, used both pirates and locals. One of the purpose of large muscular dogs was to participate in dog battles. In the 1880s, veterinarian Dr. Jose Leita Pacheko wrote the first breed standard and wanted to give her the name of the work of the cake (Rabo-tail, Torto-twisted). However, already at that moment this breed was on the verge of disappearance.

These are broadchested and broadshouldered soil with a beautiful proportional head and powerful neck. Ears of typical representatives of the breed hanging, with a rounded tip. One of the distinctive features of the Phil Terme is the tail. It is short and as if it curl like a corkscrew. The nose of these dogs can be both black and brown, while smooth short wool should be plain in shades of yellow, brown and steam with a dark mask. Small white marks on the chest and paws are allowed.
