A Presa pup was in the plans from over a year ago, got sidetracked for awhile when we took in our rescue "Willa" and helped foster another for awhile. Back on track to our origional plan though and last night welcomed home "Bea". Did a lot of research on the breed, along with meeting others Presas and their owners, and for a good breeder. We wanted an active, companion animal for our ourselves and our other dogs, that will also make for a good household guardian (our small city isn't what it used to be and Willa would just lick any intruders to death while showing them where the silver was LOL). We do a lot of hiking too in an area becoming more numerous with Coyotes and coyote/wolf hybrids so a little extra protection there too. Anyway, here's "Bea" :)

She'll be a fair size, her dad was 130lbs and her mom 120lbs. Now some Presa bloodlines these days are being bred for size more than anything, but Bea's bloodlines are from smaller, more active, working dogs from the Canary Islands where they are still being used for cattle herding/protection. I wasn't looking for a monster sized couch potato :) .

Thanks again everyone, have a pretty solid training plan laid out for her, but I'm sure she'll challenge us all the way LOL. Of course there'll be lots of pics too as she grows :)

Careful introductions with Willa today, but no issues for a first meeting. All Willa wanted to do was play, but she's a bit too small for that kind of rough and tumble yet, but they did have a little dodge and chase together for a short period.

I've always been a fan of brindle. When I said too much dog for me, it wasn't the guardian aspect. It's the fact that I only weigh 106 lbs! 120-130 lbs is too much for me! LOL

It's all in the training :) If you don't have control of a 120lb dog of any kind, and it wants to react in a bad way, doesn't matter how much you weigh, it's not going to be pretty!

She is gorgeous! Sounds like you made a great choice.

Thanks, I was worried she might be over-stressed and withdrawn with the move but it's like nothing to her - again a very confident and intellingent pup. 1 day in and she's scratching at the door to do her business outside!

Awww, too cute. Yes I know it's all in the training, my point is should a dog that big decides something is more interesting than listening to a command, I'd be screwed! Lol, I'd be taken for a drag!
