Presa Canario in AKC FSS – Foundation Stock Breeds Approved for Competition

As noted in the October issue of Dog World Magazine, the American Kennel
Club (AKC) has approved Foundation Stock breeds (FSS) to compete in AKC Companion events, including Obedience, Tracking, and Agility, effective Jan. 01, 2004. One of the seventeen approved breeds is our own Perro de Presa Canario. This outstanding decision by the AKC, will afford every Presa Canario owner,an opportunity to work towards titling their Presas, in all AKC events. If your Presa is not registered with the AKC/FSS, you should e-mail the AKC Foundation Stock Service at: fss@akc.org or call 919/816-3766 and speak with Customer Service representative. In any event, both AKC/FSS & UKC require a breed club pedigree be sent along with your application for registry. The pedigree can be obtained by contacting Richard Kelly, UPPCC, 239 Raritan Ave., Middlesex, NJ. 08846-1025. This AKC announcement coupled with the approved United Kennel Clubs (UKC) acceptance of our breed as Perro de Presa Canario, now offers our club (UPPCC) and our breed, the national exposure needed to elevate the historical Perro de Presa Canario to its highest status.
