of Alexander The Great
Peritas belong to Alexander the Great and was of an ancient breed that most closely resembles the current Dogue de Bordeaux or a Mastiff on steroids. Peritas was bred to be a fighting dog. There are many stories of Peritas saving Alexander’s life in battle against masses of humans, one lion and even one elephant. Peritas was ultimately wounded by a javlin but it was honoured by a city named after him.
