The modern Spanish Alano hardly carries any resemblance to its ancient version but it surely inherited from it its ferociousness and incredible power. Gradually this dog spread all over the world although its population was mostly concentrated in Spain. The surge of its popularity began in the XV century when Spaniards widely exploited it as a war dog. It was the time of exploration and conquest and it played the role of so-called «attack dog», which was oftentimes seen on ships of Spanish conquistadors in their conquest expeditions. In the XVII century bullfighting was one of the favourite entertainments of Spaniards and the Spanish Alano served as a bullfighting dog. It appeared to be highly suitable for this cruel sport because of its unbelievingly strong bite.
