    Perro De Presa Canario |Spain|

    Perro De Presa Canario |Spain|

    These imposing dogs have a history that is documented to the fifteenth century. They are likely descended from mastiff-type war dogs taken to the Canary Islands by the Spanish conquistadors. The dogs developed their specific characteristics on the islands and became noted for their guarding skills and for driving and holding cattle. They also became popular for dog fighting before that gruesome blood sport was banned. In the 1940s, the breed almost disappeared, but has been re-established and was recognized by the Real Canine Society Central of Spain in 1983. They are not suitable for first-time dog owners.
