The CIMARRÓN URUGUAYO is a medium sized dog of molossian type. It is strong, compact, with heavy bones, well muscled and agile. According to some, they are descended from dogs introduced by the Spanish and Portuguese conquerors of Uruguay. 

The Uruguayan Cimarron lived in the country and bred among themselves. Natural selection had as a result that only the fitter, the stronger and more clever individuals survived. This is how the Cimarrón evolved to its present standard. The Cimarrón Uruguayo is used for guarding, hunting, and all dog sports in its native Uruguay.

Often the ears are cropped short when the dogs are very young. This is alleged to be in homage to the days when they were hunted (the ears were presented for the bounty.) Most fighting dog breeds have their ears severely cropped.

White marks are allowed in the following places: underjaw, throat, forechest, abdomen and lower part of legs.
