The Presa Canario (translated: Canarian catch dog) is also known as the Dogo Canario (Canarian Molosser) and was originally bred by the Canary Island farmers to protect their families and farms in addition to subduing cattle for the butchers.

They are large, powerful dogs with high intelligence and are great family dogs as they bond with their owners but are also very protective and stubborn. We are working to better the breed while introducing it to mainstream America.
