The rescue I foster for pulled a very preggo bitch from NC (the dog(s) had been seized by animal control). Tara delievered her pups days after arriving in KS. The female pup we are adopting is through this group so she has just been a healthy happy pup since she can remember.

I have 2 Presa Canarios both are capable dogs but are different in their temperament. Both have done protection work my male is very social and friendly but at the first sign of aggression becomes a true guardian. With my female every stranger is suspect. Theses dogs are very powerful when training I ware cleats because at 5'11 190lbs I wouldn't be able to hold them while in prey drive. However when with my grandchildren they are very gentle they will not take a treat from the kids unless given permission.

I would suggest that anyone researching Presas make sure that they understand the difference between Presa Canario and Dogo Canario. Also president of the breed club the UPPCC lives in Kansas.
