Aggressive dogs

Lately, there has been a lot of talk about certain dog-on-human aggressions in England. The press, radio and television throughout Europe have echoed these regrettable events. Now, if the misfortunes to which I refer have transcended in such a way, it is because British high politics (or low politics, you never know) has been involved. […]

The Perro de Presa Canario, your selection

About the Perro de Presa Canario one has written quite a lot -some might say too much-, but not enough. When a dog breed is born, everything is still to be done. This is our case. In any case, something has been done, better or worse. From practically nothing, the Perro de Presa Canario has […]

A communiqué

On the occasion of such a scandalous fraud, the breed clubs (Club Español del Perro de Presa Canario, recognized by the Real Sociedad Canina de España, Club de Perros de Presa Canarios, and Club de Perros de Presa Faycán) and independents sat down (we sat down), at last, around a table to talk.

New problems for Presa Canario

If until last April 28th (1989) the discord between the different clubs and independents was the worst enemy of the Perro de Presa Canario, now it is the lack of understanding between the Sociedad Canina Española and the clubs and independents, now well united (for the moment).

And now for the C.A.C.

The first young canary dogs are already in the ring. They are similar only in color. Sad spectacle for cynologists, and for breeders who work the gene. And the public (a lot of public) watches, admires, or criticizes what they are seeing. Evaristo Sanllehí observes, meek and humble of heart (apparently at least) dressed in […]
