History

The ancestors of the Presa Canario, or
canary dog were probably brought to the Canary
Islands by the Spanish Conquistidors, and coexisted
with indigenous cattle dogs from the beginning of
the fifteenth century. These dogs served many
purposes.  They guarded the farms, helped catch
and hold cattle, and exterminated wild or stray dogs.
In the 1940s, the breed began to decline in
numbers.  In was revived again in the 1970s, when
reputable breeders developed and bred Presa
Canario true to their original size and character.

Presa Canario dogs have experienced ups and
downs in the course of history. These dogs are now
gaining popularity with the quality of the breeding
stock being constantly improved.

The breed originated in the Canary Islands, which
got the name after the dog, not a famous bird.  In
fact, the word "cane" gave rise to the island name.  
The island was referred to as "The Island of Dogs."

The Presa Canario dog  originated from the strong
smooth - coated found on farms and used as working
dogs.  
They were called Majero and are believed to
resemble the Perro de Pastor Malloquin and the
Cao de Castro Laboreiro.  These dogs were widely
spread on the territory of the Canary Islands before
the Spanish were settled there.

In the 19th century, Mastiffs and Old-style bulldogs
appeared on the canary Islands. These dogs were
crossed with the native dogs and the end
result was the Canary dog, also referred to as the
Canario dog.

The Presa Canario was recognized by the
United Kennel Club on January 1, 2003.
