About CAFIB: membership rejected and non-acceptance of breeders as members…
About Brazilian Northeast people trying to re-fabricate the “black-fila“, but crossing them with YELLOW CAFIB-Fila ?!?!?!
Leo Lima, CAFIB member who is organizing Expo-Teresina (Jun,16th), informs he has already rented Fazenda Vale do Leite…
Alleged evolution of FB versus the thinking and practical actions done by Dr. Paulo Santos Cruz…
Dear Fila Brasileiro (FB) and CAFIB friends,
A – CAFIB follows and faithfully respects its Breeding Philosophy and Regulations. CAFIB is a coherent club, not subject to pressure or compromise. For these qualities, allied to the technical and historical knowledge of its founders, directors, judges and associates, completed 40 years old and is the only Club responsible for having rescued the FB from extinction and preserves it in its breed purity.
B – Unfortunately for some CBKC-FCI Fila and “fila” breeders the end justifies the means. And “accommodations” and “alliances” are made and undone quickly. There is no leadership, no rigid principles that are respected. It is enough to comment that the judges of the CBKC-FCI, Alexandre Bacci and Andrea Blumen, posted in the Facebooks that the FB is not a Pure Breed Dog, but just a group of mestizos dog !!! Before that, some breeders invented the thesis that was known as “not-pure by cross“… And so on, so forth… All is fair…
For example: when recently Uncle Chico wrote against the attitude of some Brazilian Northeast breeders who adore the “black-fila“, but cross these mestizo dog with CAFIB-Fila of YELLOW color, in order to steal the CAFIB Fila phenotype in a proof full of incongruity to the color they say they are trying to fix (black), received an email from one of the oldest CBKC-Fila breeders, trying to justify and accommodate the situation. He wrote me: “You left the person
who will give the place where CAFIB will hold its next expo in Teresina, State of Piauí, very upset. Besides giving up the place for CAFIB to do the expo there in Piauí, he was going to put 14 dogs on the track. Now he does not want to give the place and will show no dogs.“ So, for this old CBKC-Fila breeder, the important in this case is holding the expo, no matter if counting with the help and sponsorship of a person who is radically and in conflict with the CAFIB ideals and breed “black-fila”. Because of that, as I wrote above: and so on, so forth… In CBKC-FCI-Fila and “fila” all is fair…!!!
Precisely for this reason Uncle Chico divulged and completely demoralized this spurious Brazilian Northeast attempt to re-create, re-made, re-fabricate and re-invent the mestizo dog called “black-fila“. Just read in English my solid argument by accessing the “buscar” (= search = rectangular box) in my blog (https://filabrasileirochicopeltierblog.wordpress.com/ ) posts # 551, 553, 550, 557 and 559.
But the fact is that CAFIB thinks totally different and will do exactly the opposite of what was suggested by this old CBKC-Fila breeders: the CAFIB member responsible for the organization of the CAFIB Expo in Teresina, Piauí on June, 16th., Mr. Leo Lima, already rented the Expo Center called Fazenda Vale do Leite (see in http://www.pi.gov.br/materia/seplan-1/fds-teresinense-ganha-opcoes-de-lazer-para-o-final-de-semana-1753.html ) to realize such Expo, CAFIB has already bought air tickets for its three directors / judges with its own resources. They are: Luciano Gavião, Américo Cardoso and Mariana Campbell, who are very well know. So, if this Expo happens, it will be with CAFIB resources. As always has occurred in these 40 years !!! After all ideals and principles in CAFIB are not for sale !!! Uncle Chico realized 13 or 14 CAFIB Expos in Rio de Janeiro without ever asking the help from anyone from CBKC. Much less from “black-fila” breeders. CAFIB has already performed more than 300 Expos and AFTs with its own resources !!! CAFIB never needed anything from CBKC-FCI at all. CAFIB has only been in the past 40 years cleaning up the breed dirt due to miscegenation in these two clubs.

D – On the alleged evolution of FB versus the thinking and practical actions of Dr. Paulo Santos Cruz, I comment that people who claim to be FB breeder and like to invent and sponsor new, faulty and misguided theories usually quote and use the name of Dr. Paulo Santos Cruz, founder and CAFIB Master of Breeding, in the vain expectation of deceiving the unwary as if the Father of the Fila Brasileiro endorsed their nonsense and inventions.
Therefore, I sometimes get foolishness about such an “original fila” or “traditional-fila”, invented by people who claim to follow the thoughts of Dr. Paulo Santos Cruz.
But these same fools forget that Dr. Paulo, who they say they follow and praise so much, is the same Dr. Paulo who helped to found CAFIB and consolidated and passed on all his knowledge to this Club, especially in elaborating our Breed Standard in the year 1978, which is updated and respected until today.
That is: everything that Dr. Paulo thought, knew and believed about the FB, is exactly registered in the Standard and the Journal O Fila of CAFIB, as well as articles and letters of Dr. Paulo that were published from 1976, when I met him and convinced him to return to the FB, or since 1978 already as a CAFIB member. And, notice, in these documents there is no reference to such “original-fila” or “traditional-fila”. There are countless articles, notes and interviews with Dr. Paulo that have been published mainly in Jornal do Brasil, in the magazine Animais & Veterinária and in the newspaper O Estado de São Paulo, among other communication vehicles. All this historical material is posted on my website (http://www.filabrasileirochicopeltier.com.br/ ) by the year of its publication. Just read and study !!! Period !!!
Thus, it is obviously clear that Dr. Paulo never believed in theses that defend such “original-fila“, “traditional-fila“, “black-fila“, the “freak-fila” and so many excrescences of mestizos “filas“.
So, stop using Dr. Paulo`s name, stop fooling and deceiving the silly and stop being fools.
E – Phrase of the year: The silence of the good breeders of Fila and “fila” registered in CBKC-FCI, as well as of all other FB clubs, is the cause of the audacity of bad breeders…
Best regards, Chico Peltier.
