The Buldogue Campeiro (litteraly, "rural bulldog"), also called the Brasilian Bulldog,  is an extremely rustic working dog. It descends from the ancient English Bulldogs brought to the Rio Grande del Sur and Santa Catarina in Brasil by the European immigrants since the 16th Century.

The Buldogue Campeiro's is a dog with a powerful and strong physical constitution indicating strength and agility.  It is a very versatile and well adapted dog.  It should have a calm and watching temperament (does not bark a lot) with an accentuated warrior spirit and loyalty.

This temperament should be so obstinate as to overcome limits and so controlled as to always maintain obedience to commands from the shepherd. 

This extremely courageous dog is very loyal to its master and docile with the rest of the family, but reserved with strangers.

Its body should be strong with a large and broad head and strong, powerful and protruding jaws.  Muzzle should be wide and strong but not so short as in Modern English Bulldog nor as long as in the Bullmastiff in order to enable it to bite and hold bulls inde- pendently of its weight.  The ideal muzzle length is ca. 1/3 of the skull length.  The ears are small to medium, rose or button, set high and wide.
