History The Canis Panther is a dog breed developed in the United States of America during the 1970s. Dogs of this breed were developed by Mr. Cleotha "Scorpio" Jones, Mr. Lucas Lopez, and Mr. Michael Stratten. They wanted to create a Doberman-like guard dog, at which they succeeded. Breeds such as the Staffordshire Terrier, Doberman Pinscher, Black Labrador, and the Black Great Dane were used for the development of the Canis Panther.
Although the breed has been named Canis Panther, these dogs are not used to hunt panthers or even any other game. In fact, this breed is excellent as a pet protector. It has also been granted recognition by the Personal Protection Dog Association.
Appearance These dogs are heavily muscled, and they have a wide chest and jaw. Typically, Canis Panthers have cropped ears and a docked tail. Their rear dew claws are also removed. These dogs sport a short, fine-haired coat.
Colours Canis Panthers are solid-coloured dogs. Their coat comes in a wide variety of colours, including black, chocolate, blue gray, and fawn.
Temperament Canis Panthers are very loving and sensitive to their human family, which they consider as their pack. These dogs will do well in homes that have children or existing pets, because Canis Panthers can adapt well at this kind of environment when introduced properly. These dogs are very intelligent, loyal pets, and they are not aggressive towards other animals. Canis Panthers excel in agility, personal protection, and obedience. They make great pet protectors because they are wary of strangers and have natural protective instincts. These dogs are dominant by nature, so they need owners who know how to display strong leadership skills.
Weight Male dogs of this breed have a height that ranges from 27 to 30 inches, and a weight that falls between 120 and 140 pounds. Females are approximately 24 to 27 inches high, and weigh around 85 to 105 pounds.
Problems Dogs of this breed have no recorded genetic health problems and they are considered healthy and hardy dogs. Like other dogs, Canis Panthers may get sick at some point in their lives, but ailments and other health issues affecting Canis Panthers are those common to other dog breeds.
Living Conditions These dogs should be kept indoors because their short coat can't give them much protection against harsh weather. It's still advisable, though, for these dogs to be provided with a yard where they can run around and do some physical activities. Owners should also make sure that their dogs are provided with adequate exercise.

Training Requirements Owners of Canis Panthers should know how to display strong leadership skills because Canis Panthers are naturally dominant and may take advantage of a weak-minded owner. Dogs of this breed are best suited for owners who already know how to deal with and train large, dominant breeds. These dogs should be socialized well and trained using firm, gentle methods. It's also advisable for these dogs to undergo obedience training. Owners of Canis Panthers should be able to show the dog that humans are higher in rank than the dogs. Otherwise, Canis Panthers may exert their dominance over humans.
Life Expectancy Dogs of this breed are expected to live for approximately 10 to 11 years.
Grooming The smooth, short-haired coat of the Canis Panther is easy to groom and care for. Owners just need to brush the coat of their dog occasionally. Bathing and dry shampooing should be done only when necessary because frequent bathing can strip natural oils off the dog's coat.
