Its not necessarily the blocky look that I like, but the savage look. I like a head that looks very primitive. Here is a dog that I like;http://www.policedogs.us/Brix1.jpg

But to me, this is what a correct looking head looks like;

I'll attach a picture so you can see exactly what I'm talking about. Thanks guys!


I wouldn't say this dog has a big blocky head at all, it's more refined in fact in my opinion.

That's what I was thinking as well... looks like a strong female head.

Boy... Javir.... those are those dogs that have everything you can ask for! And kudos not only to the dog itself, but to the breeders/owners for taking them there.

Oof.. so happy that my next female pup has Javir on top and Boy on bottom.
