Congrats on adding what will truly be the best dog you will ever own. My Fila's name was Chevy (8+ years old)and last week she lost her battle with cancer so she is running in the dog park in heaven. We were lucky enough to be chosen by her over 6 years ago in an animal shelter in maryland while we were atationed there. they seemed to think she had origianlly been owned by someone but stolen and taken to a puppy mill as the area she was found in has tons of them. She was listed as a bloodhound mix but we were later informed by our vet that we owned a Fila. She was everything the Breed is supposed to be and then some. I have the forever paw print of a Fila on my heart that will last forever. I would own another Fila in a heart beat but right now my heart is still healing. I hope you enjoy your Fila as much as we did.
