In the previous centuries, the times with no internet, no telephones and most importantly within this context - no refrigerators, alanos used to have a certain employment in butchers'. Fresh meat could appear in the town only presuming that it would get there by its own legs. Butchers were buying cattle from farmers and rounding it up to municipal slaughterhouses. That's where they got it slaughtered. In the middle ages many towns forbade the direct delivery of meat. The aforementioned method was the only legal way of doing this.

Cows and bulls rounded up for the slaughter had to be tamed; under the influence of stress they got panicked. During the slaughter the dog working for the butcher was holding the cow to make it freeze still, which allowed to butcher more efficiently. The dogs working in abattoirs were a common view until the beginning of the 20th century. This type of grabbing dog differed strongly from the dogs working on the grass-fields. It didn't have to chase the victim, keeping the strengths until the end, in order to finally accelerate and catch it. The slaughter dogs didn't use to work on the field, but indoor or to catch up a panicked animal at a distance of a few dozens yards. They also used to work mostly alone. Therefore, they were more robust, capable of sprint, and their greater mass was a gain to the grab effect at a victim's snout.
