    I'm no more weary of a Presa than any other dog I meet. Till I get to know them that is. I have a friend that owns a big a$$ solid black Great Dane! This dog is big, real tall too! He talks to you and it sounds like he's gonna rip you a new one... scared the poop out of me the first few times he did it... I still kinda get my hackles up when he does it, it sounds so gnarly!

    My two presa's are good with other dogs and people. They have been to ob class with other dogs. One is about 160 lbs and the other about 105 lbs. The biggest is actually only about 16 months old. I am still a little leary when we have them out just because of their size. Being OB trained is a must for all dog. My little pom was nastier than the other dogs and bit quite a few people. We have 4 dogs that the presa's share a yard with and they all play and get along just fine. Like with pits, you will find poorly bred / untrained dogs that behave badly.

    I LOVE Pressa's. I have a friend in GA that has a yard. I used to house sit for him when I live there. I agree with Gen. Pressa's take a strong owner.

    I find it ironic that some will so fiercely protect the APBT breed against accusations of human and dog aggression, etc, yet they will point the finger at another breed. Dont be hypocrites! Dogs are who they are trained to be. On the other hand, dogs who are not trained will be wild and unpredictable...they are ANIMALS. These presa look like beautiful dogs to me.

    LOL Have you EVER dealt with a Presa? No one is pointing any fingers. It is the truth. They are a guardian breed. And no dogs are not always what they are trained to be. There is a small thing called genetics that contributes to temperment.

    They are beautiful dogs. But need a strong owner.

    Absolutely agree 100%.

    Looking like a lovely dog is one thing, but that doesn't make them the dog for just anyone. If less people owned this breed (and countless others) unless they had experience with them, had a mentor and a great trainer, we wouldn't have Presa (and countless others) attacks on the news.

    Nature vs nurture.... nature wins.

    I've only met two of these awesome, majestic animals... I think they are awesome, but just like the APBT, they need a certain kind of dedicated owner. I might would own one, but I don't think I could handle two at one time.... of course, I also said that about the APBT too, and now I have two of them. :rolleyes:

    They certainly are pretty dogs, but I agree they need an experienced and strong owner. Remember the Whipple case in San Francisco? These 2 nutjobs kept 2 presa canarios in a tiny apartment and let these dogs rule the roost. Unfortunately, they attacked and killed Diane Whipple who was trying to get into her apartment. Immediately following the incident, they were first reported as being "pitbulls" and the media had to later correct and say they were, in fact, Presa Canarios. These dogs had zero leadership and zero training.

    I think theyre good looking dogs, and when properly and responsibly cared for make amazing companions. However, Im troubled by the fact that they seem to be appealing to the wrong types.

    Presas, when bred properly and for the proper reasons and in the hands of the responsible, educated owner, are absolutely amazing animals.

    Just like every breed out there, the Presa has seen its fair share of backyard breeding and piss-poor breeding of unsound dogs and now there are some dogs out there that do not need to be. And it's a shame.

    Yep they need a real structred owner that won't tolerate the BS what so ever they are dog and human agressieve they can get somewhat violent at times you just have to have authority and utter leadership you can't let the dog own you what so ever in that breed lets forget about the size they grow hugely

    My ex and I had a Presa. He was a great dog! A little wary of strangers, wasn't super keen on strange dogs until he had had a proper intro to the right dog, but he was not unstable or vicious by any means. We also had Lila and a male pit bull who got along great with the Presa. Yes, they are a very large, very powerful, guardian breed but, like all dogs, they can be fantastic when bred and raised right.

    I have met 2 presa's and both were very big babies and VERY big period.They were at petco one day,when i went in to pick up some mice for my snake. My neighbor has a brindle cane corso named ''Brody'' who is also a sweety.He figured out how to get the latch up on the gate to his yard,one day and was hanging out at my place.He was great,let me catch him and I walked him back home(before i knew him well) NO agression,unless you count VERY slobbery kisses and fear of dieing from slobber suffocation.The owner now padlocks his gate so brody cant get out.But yeah,BIG babies.

    I do agree though a dog like that of poor breeding and/or temperment issues, would be VERY dangerous,and I want to reinforce ANY dog can bite for MANY reasons.But gennerally,they are nice dogs as far as i can tell.
