Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Mucuchies dog breed is from Venezuela. They have a short coat with feathering along their limbs. The coat color is either white or white with splashes of colors such as honey or tan, or shades of black and gray. Mucuchies weigh between 30 and 50 kilograms (66 to 110 pounds), and stand around 55.9 cm to 71.1 cm (22in. to 28in.) Mucuchies are a very affectionate, intelligent, and active breed. Socialization and training are necessary for they can be aggressive with strangers. The origins of the Mucuch es are not well understood. At the end of the 16th century, they arrived at the Andean places of Venezuela. These dogs were workers, watching and protecting the cattle from predators. It is thought that they were brought to Venezuela by the Spanish forces and that their ancestors include the Spanish Mastiff, Pyrenean Mastiff and the Algerian Mastiff, as well as the Sheepdog of the Atlas or Aidi and the Pyrenean. Over the years, these dogs were crossed with each other, as well as the local dogs of Venezuela, creating a powerful and very versatile working dog. By 1926, the Mucuch es could be found all throughout Venezuela and beyond.
