The AKC's Foundation Stock Service is an option for purebred breeds to continue to develop while providing them with the security of a reliable and reputable way to maintain their records. While most Foundation Stock Service Breeds are approved to compete in AKC Companion Events, they are not eligible for AKC registration. So, unlike other AKC groupings like the Terrier Group or Working Group and even the Non-Sporting Group where one can gain further insight from the grouping the dog breed may be in, the AKC Foundation Stock Service gives us little insight. Thus, we must turn to other facts we know about the Tosa to determine if a high-protein dog food is right for the Tosa. For example, we know that a Tosa is typically calm and has a somewhat reserved demeanor. More importantly, we know that the fearless, patient, vigilant Tosa is typically calm In regard to energy levels. Thus, the Tosa needs proper diet and exercise to keep it closer to the 100 pounds side of their recommended 100-200 pounds weight. A high-protein dog food for the Tosa would be an optimal choice!
