Nothing like finally getting him out of the house for the first time since Monday’s snow to come home to it snowing again. I think he burned off a little bit of energy before he becomes a sissy again. #RoccoTaco#presacanario#citylife
Presa as a world means function therefore many breeds are presa type dogs. Some even owning world Presa as part of their breeds name (Presa Espanol or Presa Mallorquin). Presa Canario is an ethnic group and a breed with its own history, standard and name. The "old" Presa Canario of course wasn't named so. It was named perro verdino, perro de presa or perro de la tierra (dog from the land), back than it was their dog and didn't need to be distinguished from others or named Canarian as this was obvious, now when dogs started leave islands and dog of the land needed a name with would show best what it is (function and region of origin) it became Perro de Presa Canario.
