The OFB and the importance of comparing photos honestly.
Comparison of photos of CAFIB-Filas with Very Good and Great qualification.
Is the OFB the Second Great Miscegenation in the Fila Brasileiro ???
After all, the new dog named OFB is Fila or is OFB ???
My dear Fila Brasileiro (FB) and CAFIB friends,
As every honest breeder knows very well, one should not compare photos of Very Good or Great qualifying CAFIB-Filas with only Regular qualifying CAFIB-Filas, which are
subject to the strict CAFIB breeding and control regulations, which only breeders really interested care about knowing and studying.
For the illiterate functional on duty in the social networks I inform you that a FB with only Regular qualification, according to the CAFIB Regulation, is not considered apt for reproduction as nothing he can improve and contribute to the improvement of the CAFIB and FB squad while pure breed dog, being therefore preferable that the breeders dedicate themselves to breed copies of better qualification (*).
(*) The analyzed dog belongs to the Fila Brasileiro breed, however, due to the set of phenotypic characteristics presented (structure and temperament), was considered only “Regular” and therefore although it may participate in Expos, should not be used for reproduction. As the basic goal CAFIB is the genetic improvement of the breeding stock, any puppies that this generate will not receive a Origin Registration.
A – Therefore, below is photo # 1 of FB Lord, breed by precursor Mr. Jose Gomes de Oliveira, FB breeder located in the city of Varginha, southern Minas Gerais, Cradle of the Fila Brasileiro, taken on one of the first expeditions organized by CAFIB in the late 70’s, with the participation of Dr. Paulo Santos Cruz. These expeditions were organized
to help rescue Pure Fila from extinction as a result of the huge unscrupulous miscegenation carried out without control by breeders who had been using simple and criminal pedigree forgery since the early 1970’s, with the systemic and institutional support initially of the BKC and, then from CBKC. But always with the FCI seal of breed purity.
Below is also photo # 2 by Tirano do Alto Quatis, Best Head of the 7th Itanhandu Expo held in 2014, ie taken 35 years after photo # 1. What can neophytes not observe? That they are two equal heads and homogenies !!! These are two heads of the original, traditional and authentic Fila Brasileiro of ever !!! Who has changed, innovated, invented and modernized for the worse? Fila-CAFIB or OFB?
Photo # 1: Lord – Jose Gomes (1978)
Photo # 2: Tirano do Alto Quatis (2014)
B – Photo # 3 by Fada do Ibituruna (1986), Brazilian Champion 1986 and photo # 4 by Kratos do Itanhandu (2016), Brazilian Champion 2016. Thirty years separate these two photos and Fila CAFIB remains the same and homogeneous. Who has changed, innovated, invented and modernized for the worse? CAFIB-Fila or OFB? In fact, Dr. Paulo loved the Fada do Ibituruna phenotype and temperament.
C – For comparison with the Pure Filas photos breed and registered at CAFIB above, below are photos of five recently copied Facebook OFBs of this new dog’s sympathizer, characterized by their thin and triangular head and fragile and lightweight body. That is: a dog that will never be considered as belonging to the Molossoid Family !!!
Bronco do Caramona Canário do JC
More photos of OFBs (or is it really some SRDs dogs?)
Note: SRD in Portuguese = no defined breed = mutt
In conclusion, to the beloved OFB fans and dog trainers, eager to conquer the FB market outside CAFIB:
I – Precisely based on the photos above I ask if the OFB would be the Second Great Miscegenation in Fila Brasileiro ???
II – After all what would be the “modern fila”? It would be the CAFIB-Fila carefully preserved and breed, typical and homogeneous in its breed purity since 1978 or the OFBs of the five photos above breed from 2018-19?
III – Finally: the inventor of the OFB also invented a tricky speech that the OFB would be another dog breed; who register in another notary dog club that also understands nothing of FB, as well as CBKC and FCI; but also called Fila; this would be the original “fila” and therefore the false would be CAFIB-Fila; which in turn is called by the OFB inventor a “modern fila“. After all, the new dog named OFB is Fila or is OFB ???
IV – After all, when will the inventor of the OFB leave paper and theory and organize an expo so that we all have knowledge of the phenotype, temperament and typical functions of OFB?
Fool me that I like it.
Two half Brazils will never add up to an entire Brazil!
Best regards, Chico Peltier.
Note: as I have always done with all emails sent in the past, this was also sent primarily to those responsible for FCI + CBKC.
