The Presa Canario was historically used as a guardian and cattle driving dog. The dog originated on the Canary Islands and was developed by crossing native dogs with Bulldogs and Mastiffs. The result was a large boned dog with a massive head that is even-tempered, intelligent and athletic. The Presa Canario has a short, smooth, coarse coat that comes in fawn or brindle with a darker face mask. They are protective of property, loyal to family and wary of strangers.
