The Presa Canario.

A Molossoid dog native to the islands of Tenerife and Gran Canaria in the Canary archipelago. It appears to be the result of crossbreeding between the "Majorero", a pre-Hispanic cattle dog native to the islands, and Molossoid dogs that arrived in the archipelago. 


These crosses gave rise to an ethnic group of dog-like dogs, medium-large in size, brindle or fawn in color and spotted with white, with the morphology of molosses but with agility and power, strong temperament, hardy, active and loyal. 


During the 16th and 17th centuries, their population increased considerably, and there are numerous references to them in post-conquest historical texts, especially in the "Cedularios del Cabildo" (Municipal Registers), which explain their role as guardians and protectors of cattle.
