Standard, UPPCC. Origin Spain.
Usage: Guardian Of farms and management of cattle. In 1989 the Royal Canine Society of Spain
He recognized the Canario Presa Dog. At standard of the race was conspicuous by its absence
the black layer – because that’s what the directive wanted of the moment of the Spanish Club of the Dog of
Presa Canario-. After a heated debate, achievement that the Royal Spanish Canine Society
include the black layer in that standard. Then, in the year 2000, for reasons
known -economically fundamentally- said club decided to sideline the denomination
traditional of the Canarian molossian, which was always Dog of Prey, and I accept that of Dogo
Canary proposed by the FCI, with a standard substantially modified, in which it does not appear
the black layer. The Perro de Presa Canario was recognized by
United Kennel Club on January 1, 2003. David Espinoza, with the collaboration of others
amateurs achievement, before the formalities relevant, that the United Kennel Club (UKC)
recognized the Canario Presa Dog (coat included), and the association that
represents, the United Perro de Presa Canario Club (UPPCC). History.
Molossian dog originally from the Canary Islands. From the XVI, in the Agreements of the Cabildo
of Tenerife, in the Ordinances of Tenerife, and in the Agreements of the Cabildo de Betancuria
(Fuerteventura) is spoken, among other races canines, of prey dogs. The most logical
is to think that this dog was brought to the Canary Islands by Spanish conquistadors and settlers
from the Iberian Peninsula. Then, with the time and isolation, derived in a race
completely differentiated. In the Canaries, the dogs of prey were used for the
guardian of the haciendas, for the care of the cattle and as a butcher’s assistant
in the slaughter of cattle vaccines. From these dogs we only have references
written, and its extinction might occur in the late of the nineteenth or in the first three decades of
XX. From 1920 to 1950, more or less, with In order to obtain dogs for the fight, they
cross different imported breeds (Mastiff Spanish, English Bulldog, Bull Terrier, Dogo
Alemán) with the Perro de Ganado Majorero (from of Fuerteventura, as its name indicates) and
with the dog of the land (Gran Canaria, from several decades ago extinct), of characteristics
similar to the livestock dog of Fuerteventura, and like this, to my understanding, descendant
of the Spanish cattle dogs brought to the islands by the conquistadors and settlers
Spanish people. With the prohibition of fights back in 1945 these prey dogs disappear
as well. From 1975-6 the hobby is reborn to the dogs of prey, and gradually,
through crosses with several breeds of dogs import (English Bulldog, Neapolitan Mastiff,
Bullmastiff, Mastiff, German Bulldog, Bullterrier, American Staffordshire Terrier, Staffordshire
Bull Terrier, American Pit Bull Terrier, Rodesian Ridgeback, Spanish Mastiff) plus the Dog
de Ganado Majorero the new dog was created of canary prey. the dog of the land or of cattle, of Gran Canaria no longer exists
