Tio Chico Newsletter # 193
Comments on Mr. Jacob Nadler Blumen’s post on facebook “Selection with Responsibility”, affectionately called by Uncle Chico of “No selection and no responsibility” – NSNR…
The FB miscegenation officially denounced since the 1970s and later went virus on social networks does not awareness and sensitize the inherent responsibility of Messrs. Sérgio Castro and Ricardo Torres Simões (CBKC), as well as Messrs. Rafael Santiago, Gerard Jipping, Raymond Triquet and Yves De Clercq (FCI)…
My dear friends of CAFIB and Fila Brasileiro (FB),
Having taken note of the post below, published on Aug, 25th.-2017, I think it is necessary to make quick comments on some of the author’s positions and, moreover, to briefly add historical data that will certainly clarify many doubts of those interested in Pure Fila, as well as breeders of the called “mestizo-fila“.
But always with the intention of preserving the Pure Fila and the True History of the Fila Brasileiro. However always with education, respect and plenty arguments.
Without going into further detail, as I basically agree with the THEORETICAL thinking of Mr. Jacob Nadler Blumen in some of the points he raised, I believe it is very important to address the following thoughts below in PRACTICE and adding HISTORICAL knowledge, which was not part of the text posted by the author:
In itens # 1 and 2:
In agreement with the author’s item no. 1, where he states that the head is the defining characteristic of a breed, I ask why then this fact that covers all animal is not confirmed in PRACTICE in FB?
I myself respond: because in the FB occurred from the 70’s a huge, systematic, institutional and uncontrolled miscegenation of the FB with other breeds, which:
A – It counted at the beginning with only four original cross-breeders (know them below);
B– later with the support of very few breeders who became aware of the miscegenation, approved it and became complicit;
C – this number of supporters increased with the passage of the first years, mainly because many of these had already been deceived and had acquired “mestizos-filas”.
Thus, possessors of mestizo dogs, they embraced such miscegenation in an egotistical and comfortable way;
D – shortly thereafter, also began to get support initially veiled and then wide open from the then BKC, which had as President Mr. Henrique Pereira de Lucena, who was not worried about the FB breeding, but rather with the increase of the revenue of this club and the FCI;
F – BKC was then followed by CBKC always accompanied by the very distant, missing, omit and absent FCI (see my email to FCI and CBKC leaders in English entitled
“Where is FCI and Wally? by clicking http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/30-23.jpg );
In conclusion: while the FB was crossbreed with others breeds without goal, in a uncontrolled and unselected way, via pedigree falsification, the BKC, CBKC and FCI were only aimed at increasing their income through the issuance and sale of pedigrees of pure or non-pure dogs, not respecting its own Statute ( see http://www.fci.be/en/FCI-Statutes-39.html ).
See below in PRACTICE what this enormous miscegenation held caused in the head of the CBKC “fila” that I understand and hope Mr. Jacob Nadler Blumen wishes to standardize:
It is precisely because of this enormous heterogeneity and diversity of types of heads (not to mention the phenotype of the rest of the body, temperament and nervous system) proven by the photos above, received by me in the vast majority from facebook affectionately called by me ” Without Selection and Without Responsibility” (NSNR), which I ask: Mr. Jacob Nadler Blumen, how to define today in PRACTICE the head of the CBKC “fila” ?
The extremely sad and without future for the FB breed in the CBKC-FCI notary system and in this facebook (NSNR) it is observed that every kind of different head are post, all of then receive many “likes” and that even many of the members of this facebook post very different heads !!! That is: I am obliged to believe that many participants in this group do not know what the head of a Fila Brasilerio should be like. That is: it is a complete EVERYTHING IS OK !!!
Concluding: for them any and every big and big-head dog is FB !!!
Then, see more heterogeneous heads of the CBKC “fila” !!!
My friends, with all respect:
1 – How and why write a THEORETICAL article entitled “THE CEFALIC INDEX OF THE BRAZILIAN FILA” that was posted on May, 2nd-2017 in the NSNR facebook, when in PRACTICE the reality of atypicality heads of the CBKC-FCI “fila” is the one above?
2 – How do these facebook (NSNR) people who call themselves FB breeders can post and enjoy in this facebook at the same time heads as heterogeneous as the above? How do the administrators of this facebook allow postings of such different heads? Do the administrators of this facebook have no need to visually educate their followers? How does Mr. Jacob Nadler Blumen intend in PRACTICE to execute what he wrote in his item 2 on the head: “… define and reasonably parameterized his image…” to “…serve as a visual reference“?
Uncle Chico’s response, with all due respect but with great sincerity: perhaps only with magic, miracle or with no selection and no responsibility…
Now also see in the PRACTICE the world famous and known CAFIB Head, a natural consequence of almost 40 years of hard work, control and selection:
Please note that the CAFIB Head above is equal to the head of Pure Fila Lord, which is in the last photo on the right, taken in the 70’s, in one of the numerous expeditions of the CAFIB founders in the South of Minas Gerais, in this photo with its breeder, Mr. Zé Gomes de Oliveira, precursor and legendary FB breeder.
Note: while in the 70’s and 80’s CAFIB made several excursions to the South of Minas, to the interior of São Paulo state and to the interior of several other states in Brazil in order to rescue FB to start its breeding from scratch and to recover Pure Fila, the BKC of Mr. Lucena, at the request of the cross breeders and their followers, closed the IR (Initial Record – see http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/5.html – explanation: possibility of a pure-bred dog without pedigree to be judge and if approved receive an initial pedigree without having its fathers names recorded in this document ) in order to valorize the “crossbred filas” (mestizos-fila)… and exclude from the BKC breeding the Pure Fila without pedigree … Perfect crime … Red carpet to receive with praise the “crossbred filas” … In addition, the followers of the cross breeders boasted that in the South of Minas the FB had finished… Another perfect crime… Look at this falsehood in https://filabrasileirochicopeltierblog.wordpress.com/2016/02/29/post-n-342-tio-chico-informa-no-131-sobre-a-importancia-de-pedrinho-do-engenho-como-precursor-na-criacao-do-fila-brasileiro-enviado-em-290216-2/ .
But the perfect crime does not exist, it does not last forever and the sand castle falls apart…
Forgive me, but let me open my heart: Pure Fila is Pure Fila. Mestizo dog is mestizo dog. Half-breed dog is half-breed dog. And so, it’s just an only a mongrel dog with a luxury pedigree !!!
Any experience can go right or wrong. The miscegenation of the FB has gone totally wrong and WITHOUT CONTROL its sequels are stamped and proven in the heads of the CBKC-FCI “fila”.
I would very much like the author to compare these two sets of photos above. That is, the heterogeneity found in the heads of the CBKC-FCI breeding and the homogeneity found in the heads of the CAFIB Fila and then commented on PRACTICE, answering: how do you intend to “…parameterize your image…”, typifies it and make it unique and homogeneous?
If my readers want to see more photos of CAFIB heads as well as many mestizos heads, just go to my site at http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/ and my blog https://filabrasileirochicopeltierblog.wordpress.com/. I suggest clicking in my article in English http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/fila-brasileiro/index.html and in my series of articles entitled “What breed is this?”, chapter 13, also in English,

Too bad that many followers of the CBKC “fila” insist on theorizing so much. Sometimes trying to justify the unjustifiable miscegenation. In paper they try everything: BKC sponsored a journal against CAFIB, the Symposium of Brasilia, change in the Standard, Pure by Cross, Un-pure by Cross, FB is not a purebred dog, fake DNA, fake pedigree, fake award, a yellow dog crossing (not mating…) with yellow dog gives birth to a black puppy, new changes in the CBKC Standard, awards and absurd titles… But for me, on the contrary, I suggest that this CBKC people work hard in PRACTICE, with a focus, a technically correct objective and a lot of honesty, always prioritizing the Pure FB, not their own dogs and not their friends dogs. But I understand that it is an extremely difficult or even impossible task, because in the CBKC “fila”, there is a great diversity of types. But it was precisely by working with technical and historical knowledge in PRACTICE that CAFIB rescued the Pure Fila from this enormous miscegenation and preserved it to this day in its breed purity.
In item # 3:
How in the PRACTICE, Mr. Jacob Nadler Blumen could “…establish a criterion in the geometric parameterizations, whose figure resulted from an average analysis of phenotypes of male and female champions dog heads with the same proportion and expressive quantity of the analyzed stock… “, with the heterogeneity found in the photos above? Unfortunately in the CBKC “fila” reigns the totally heterogeneous types that are often awarded. The so-called “champions” have very different and atypical heads and, as the founder of CAFIB Mr. Airton Campbell says, they have become award winners by judges who do not know or have ever seen a True Pure Fila Brasileiro.
In item # 8:
Please do not blame Dr. Antonio Barone Forzano for the
heterogeneity of phenotypes found in the CBKC “fila” due to the miscegenation that began to occur in the early 70’s. This would be at least a tremendous injustice. Dr. Barone and FB’s recognition by FCI — in 1968, a few years before miscegenation — has absolutely nothing to do with this illegal and criminal miscegenation. Dr. Barone did his job and the cross breeders were in charge of destroying it and demoralizing and dividing the FB in the world !!!
Just read the book by journalist Paulo Godinho (see HTTP://blogdopaulogodinho.blogspot.com or by email email@example.com ), Antonio Carvalho Mendes columns in newspaper O Estado de São Paulo and O FILA, a CAFIB newspaper, edited by founder Luiz Antonio Maciel (see http://www.cafibbrasil.com/ ) to learn about the hundreds of Pure Filas and numerous kennels that breed them from 1940 to 1970, not to mention the countless FB without pedigree raised on farms, mainly in South Minas, the birthplace of the FB. Reading this material, you will be able to check up the huge amount of FBs then existing with their names, their champions and their kennels and owners names in a magnificent work done by the journalist Godinho. Even the Parnapuan Head was already accepted as the standard and model to be pursued. Just a simple example to proof, among many, taken from page # 135 of Mr. Godinho‘s book: on Oct, 14th-1951 in the 1st Dog Expo realized in Bahia competed 41 ( forty one !!!) FB, 32 with pedigree. My friends how many dogs does the CBKC put on a track during a FB expo today?
For God’s sake, let’s leave laziness apart , let`s read this book and learn from Mr. Godinho the number of Filas and the exhibitions where they participated with great success and recognition of foreign judges. From 1940 until the early 70’s the FB only made it grow and impose itself. From then on, a few breeders took over the FB breeding, in default of the others, began to carry out illegal crosses with no predetermined objective and without control since they falsified pedigrees, making the then BKC and the FCI their hostages and cumplices. That is, as Brazilian Law Judge Sergio Moro and the anti-corruption Brazilian prosecutors into the operation called Car Wash would say: as in a typical “gang of criminals” …
Mr. Jacob Nadler Blumen, with all due respect, accusing Mr. Barone of being rash and causing the heterogeneity resulting from miscegenation in the FB is the same as blaming the car for trampling someone…
The initial guilt’s for miscegenation are few, but his disciples were many. The so-called NAM`s (Neo Apologists of Miscegenation) are a much larger number, with which Mr. Jacob Nadler Blumen will have to negotiate in PRACTICE, as evidenced by studying some of the True History of Fila Brasileiro more below.
A LITTLE OF HISTORY
Let me go further, in order to make available to my readers, especially those who did not live the terrible and hard years of miscegenation, a little of the True History Fila Brasileiro:
- The first breeders to initiate this criminal miscegenation are Mr. João Batista Gomes, onwer of Kennel Sete Barras-SP, first president of the FB Paulista Club – CPFB, predecessor of the actual SPFB and Mr. Enio Monte, owner of the Kennel ABC-SP. I believe that the first was the one who idealized this illegal miscegenation, but I also think he also wanted to make a profit out of it (see http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/9-Documentos-ate-1979/9-24.jpg ); while the second, which was interviewed on Jul, 16th.-2011 by Airton and Mariana Campbell, Américo and Mariana Cardoso and myself, was, in my misconception, a pure idealism that really aimed at improving the FB. Pure idealism, but naive. Because without control and selection, no breed can improves. Unlike the way Mr. Monte organized from the beginning and with great success the formation, breeding and evolution of the Brazilian Horse of Equestrian that did not exist (see in
The big difference is that the Fila Brasileiro already existed and was a National Patrimony. No small group of people could cross breeder the FB by default and hidden of the Brazilian Ministry of Agriculture that at the time controlled and dictated the rules of dog breeding and all animals in Brazil, the important clubs like Brasil Kennel Club and Kennel Club from SP, as well as other existing breeders. Read this interview in English at: http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/novos/30_97/materia_eng.html .
– Mr. João Batista Gomes with his English Mastiff (see: http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/fotos/1843.jpg ). Year 1975;
– Chico Peltier Inside the Kennel ABC caressing the docile English Mastiff named Willy owned by Mr. Enio Monte (see:
http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/fotos/18%20(42).jpg ). Year 1975;
– Letter from Kennel Club from SP to Mr. Carlos Barroso (Juiz de Fora, MG – deceased), dated Sep,11th. – 1978, attesting that these two breeders actually owned these two English Mastiff (see http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/8-Documentos-de-1978/8-21-A.jpg );
– CAFIB interviewing Mr. Enio Monte dated Jul, 16th.-2011 (see: http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/novos/30_97/materia.html ).
In addition, Messrs. Batista and Monte naively did not worry that the miscegenation they imposed on the Fila Brasileiro could encourage other breeders to commit this same crime. Please note they did not bother to control the countless puppies that were born, there was no basic Book of Record, that is, the usual Stud Book out of the official register in the BKC, like the accounting of any corner bakery. Therefore, the born puppies were sold as Pure Fila without evaluation, without selection and, worse, with false pedigree of FB. A disaster. A stillbirth experience !!!
Thus, soon, Mr. Ibrahim Haddad Hercheu owner of the Kennel Bambarê-SP soon crossed FB with Neapolitano Mastin (in black color) and Mr. Procópio do Valle owner of Kennel Kirimauá, Juiz de Fora, MG shortly afterwards began to cross FB with Great Dane also in the black color, since this gentleman invented and fabricated the so called “black-fila”, being therefore known as the Father of the Black Fila.
This is the beginning of uncontrolled miscegenation and the product offspring of this cross breeding Uncle Chico nickname decades ago from “genetic salad fila” (see my 2 emails to former FCI president: http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/fila-brasileiro-rj-fotos.html and http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/2008ate/Page6.html ) translated today, is not a fault in memory by the breeder Mr. Paulo Reis, for “aberration-fila” or “freak-fila”.
Obviously, Mr. Batista soon tried to invent and present his frivolous and superficial theory trying to validate FB’s miscegenation with the English Mastiff. This was based on the Terceirense Fila of the Island of the Azores. In the same way, Mr. Valle invented his illogical theory that passed through the Dogue de Force Rare that would have been brought to Brazil by the Dutch. Proof or at least weak evidence of both theories? None. Zero. Anything !!! See in
https://filabrasileirochicopeltierblog.wordpress.com/2014/11/15/post-no-227-tio-chico-informa-no-79-academico-e-estudioso-em-mauricio-de-nassau-enviado-em-151114/ . Mr. Hercheu did not even bother to invent his own theory… For the functional illiterates, orbiting in the FB, this gentleman could have invented, for exempla, that the Romans of Naples were in Brazil before Pedro Alvares Cabral (the explorer, navigator, and colonizer who discovers Brazil, as Christopher Columbus discovers America) , having brought with him this wonderful Neapolitan Molosso, from the arenas of the Coliseum, which abandoned in our territory multiplied with the blessing of Mother Nature, faced Brazilians jaguars and alligator and even the Saci-Pererê ( legendary character of Brazilian folklore originated in indigenous tribes ) until the arrival of our beloved Portuguese colonizers… So, is ready: Uncle Chico has just invent and validated the cross breeding of the FB with Mastin Napolitano as the dog Arariboia, whose photo follows below and was the father of several famous cross-breed “fila” champion of the BKC-CBKC …
– Arariboia, half blood Mastin Napolitano + FB, imported from SP to Rio, passed by some kennels and went to the Kennel dos Pampas owned by Mr. Claudio João Fontes-Rio. He became a very famous reproducer and father of great champions well-known and admired in BKC-CBKC. He was very big and with a enormous head, extremely docile and he loved that I rub his ears … In this photo with Chico Peltier in 1974 (see http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/fotos/1816.jpg );
– Tição decKirimauá, one of the first “black -filas” from Mr. Valle`s kennel, animal that most resembles a very bad example of Great Dane, for being very thin and long-legged. Bred by: Mr. Procópio do Vale, Juiz de Fora, MG. Year 1978. (see http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/fotos/1816.jpg ).
The illegal crossing of these two “types” above gave rise to the huge, squat and heavy “black-filas” that we find unfortunately still today in the CBKC-FCI.
It was this way, using the three dogs bred above, that really began the great heterogeneity found in the various types of “filas” existing in the CBKC, with the quality seal of the centenary FCI. That is: the genetic salad fila !!! The freak-fila !!! The aberration-fila !!!
Well, returning to Mr. Jacob Nalder Blumen posting in item # 14 (“After this phase, I suggest: breeders by consensus and in the best interest of preserving national hegemony should urgently be understood, since they will have as brief a “need” to change their products in the blood refresh that will impose itself “), agreeing with the author referring to the item head, I suggest that the CBKC “fila” and its leaders and breeders, in order to save decades of work that will not necessarily succeed, adopt just now the famous CAFIB Head, whose homogeneity and recognition was achieved by this club after much work, with control, with selection and with responsibility, thousands of approval and disapprove of dogs, with a Standard and a Hard Regulation that are followed by all its members.
This multiple and uncontested atypicality, in addition to the total lack of interest of the CBKC and the FCI in the FB breeding, except to maintain its notary turnover, are the major difficulties to reach a serious objective and that meet to all breeders and their individuals, who tend to privilege their own dogs, kennels and breeding.
It is precisely because of this that CBKC’s “fila” has so many several different types of phenotype called pejoratively “stocky-fila, toy-fila, pet-fila, masttiff-fila, neapolitan-fila, black-fila, giant-fila, roitt-fila, bloodhound-fila, docile-fila, hairy-fila, heavy loaded-fila , aberration-fila, freak-fila” and f as I named them decades ago: “filamarques” and “genetic salad fila”…
But extremely important: I must point out, as I have done above all in two articles (see in English
and https://filabrasileirochicopeltierblog.wordpress.com/2015/02/06/post-no-243-uncle-chico-newsletter-88-more-25-photos-of-typical-filas-from-cbkc-fci-system-sent-feb-5th-2015/ ) with almost a hundred photos of copies, that there are YES typical Filas on the CBKC squad and these should obviously be prioritized in the reconstruction of the FB in the scope of the CBKC-FCI, as I understand the author claims.
In the struggle for increased its turnover , but in the world of the distant and cold trio formed by trio BKC-CBKC-FCI a mestizo-fila has never been disqualified, a Fila cross breeder has never been punished and a kennel who breed mongrels as Filas never been removed from breeding. The hundreds of proofs and evidence sent as an official complaint to these three clubs since the 1970s, and also before and after the appearance of the web and social networks where the comments and photos about the miscegenation in the FB have become so common and normal, even so are ignored and do not sensitize the responsibilities inherent to the positions held by CBKC people such as Messrs Sérgio Castro and Ricardo Torres Simões and FCI leaders such as Messrs. Rafael de Santiago, Gerard Jipping, Raymond Triquet and Yves De Clercq.
Even CBKC judges such as Mr. Alexandre Bacci and Mrs. Andrea Blumen publicly affirm via facebook that the FB does not constitute a Pure Breed dog but in a handful of mongrel dogs (note: there are several articles in my blog about this non sense) !!! That is, the desperation to justify miscegenation is so much, that they claim that BKC and FCI are entities that violate and defraud their “customers” by selling false documentation and “products” !!! So, let’s call the PROCON (= Brazilian Agency responsible for controlling the relationship between producers and consumers). Worse, by being officially denounced for this absurdity the CBKC remains totally silent since it did not scold them, punished or expelled from its board of judges. At the very least, canceling all judgments made and voiding your awards and results. This would be the least that a half-serious club would do … But in CBKC nothing, absolutely nothing happens… This would give CBKC a lot of work… Let’s leave like this… The CBKC “fila” breeders are very foolish and never they complain about nothing … So nothing happens and the omission of CBKC-FCI is eternal with regard to FB…
However, CBKC-FCI never stop and are always continuing to issue and sell their FB pedigrees … Well, BILL is necessarily. To breed SERIOUS and HONESTLY, not …
In conclusion: in a few years of hard work with technical and historical knowledge, CAFIB has rescued the Pure Fila, breed and preserved it for almost 40 years with extreme homogeneity in its bred purity. On the other hand, since the beginning of the 70’s, almost 50 years ago, the “fila” from CBKC-FCI has skated aimlessly, without focus, without goal and with dozens of heterogeneous types. Even without resources CAFIB worked and was consolidated with dedication, knowledge and respect the rules and, mainly, the History of the FB. The breeding of the CBKC “fila”, despite the many resources of this club, stopped in time and in it remains lost 50 years ago surrounded by the eternal HETEROGENEITY of its dogs…
But who knows, my friends, the unexpected brings the expected… and Mr. Jacob Nalder Blumen is able to find and bring back the indispensable HOMOGENEITY to the Fila Brasileiro CBKC-FCI breeding !!! ??? I hope so. Uncle Chico is very fond of this and everything that is good for Fila Brasileiro, independent of Clubs. Who knows, Mr. Jacob Nalder Blumen will not be the Great Leader in this wilderness of human heads who is the “fila”-CBKC and will start its way back to the breed purity demanded by the disrespected FCI Statute ?
And just like CAFIB, Uncle Chico has always been willing to talk about our beloved Fila Brasileiro seriously and with clear and pre-defined goals, with any breeder of any nuance and segment. So much that I forwarded to CBKC on Sep, 9th. – 2014, dully authorized by CAFIB, to the president Mr. Sergio Castro and at his own request, our “CBKC / CAFIB Partnership Agreement Proposal”, unfortunately to this day unanswered…
My dear Mr. Jacob Nalder Blumen, I wish you the best of luck in the arduous task which I understand you intend to do: to make homogeneous the CBKC “fila” squad. May you succeed !!! If you need, count on me !!!
Best regards, Chico Peltier.
