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). On April 28th of this year, once the Perro de Presa Canario was recognized, the long awaited first Breed Registry in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria became a reality. But that, rather than an honest and intelligent breed registration, was the worst stabbing that has been inflicted on our dog, who was just beginning his official career. On April 28th, the Spanish Central Canine Society gave the go-ahead to 117 (nothing more and nothing less) canine individuals, most of which had no more qualitative merit, from a racial point of view, than the fact of having been born in the Canary Islands. An example for history: the dog Rokote and his litter sister Princess won the CAC, being the offspring of a Bullmastiff bitch. I can not explain to myself how a judge of the Spanish Central Canine, having been previously warned of the fraud, can lend himself to such a game, a game that has continued in the Peninsula and in Palma de Mallorca, where this mongrel has been presented on several occasions and has been awarded again, as if it were a real canary dog of prey. Of course, the secret of all this is in the presenter Antonio Cabezas Albamonte, because what would dog shows in Spain be without this gentleman, who lives off the cash prizes won by the dogs he presents?
