Presa Canario

The Perro de Presa Canario, also known as the Canary Mastiff, is a rare large Molosser-type (wide chests, large stature, and muscled legs) dog breed originally bred for working livestock.

This breed is first and foremost a fearless guard dog that’s powerful, intelligent and headstrong. They possesses a thick and muscular body, broad head and powerful brachycephalic (relatively broad, short skull) shape. As with all guardian type dogs early socialisation and obedience training are a must.

The Presa Canario is a very confident breed with a commanding presence, and even though this breed probably isn’t your typical gentle family dog, with lots of daily exercise and training they can become exceptionally loyal companions.
