Presa Canario is may passion and my life. This is not a kind of dog that anyone can define and describe in some empty captions. This is a unique dog with unbelievable charm. Those that once felt in love with this breed will always stay faithful to them

Me... now and more than 255 years ago

Learning what Presa is, is an ongoing adventure. It’s meeting new people, traveling all around the world and many many hours spend on studding and finding articles, photos and even some small notes written somewhere in history. Through this site I would like to share my knowledge and experience with other fans of the breed. I stay in contact with breeders and owners of Presas all over the world, also from Spain and Canary Islands to have the opportunity to share my observations and learn from others.And there is always something new to learn and discover! 

One of my other passion is pedigrees. This made me create “Presa Canario Pedigree Database”, you will find there hundreds of pedigrees.

* update * This part of the website was taken down after the database was copied by another party to some other platform. It’s a better and more responsive project and I help to work on it now among many other great people and owners of the database we try to fix errors and gaps and have a great resource for all Presa owners. Please contact me or other moderators if you know of errors or have difficulties submitting your dog

New pedigree database:


The future of the breed lies in hands of people who are educated and get these dogs with full knowledge and responsibility.

 this is why you will find here all possible articles, interviews and information’s on my website. Some of the content shared here isn’t what I believe in or find correct – but this is just my opinion and who am I to judge. Only by having different opinions and views on this breed in one place we can make our own opinion, choose what we believe in based on all available information

United we stand, divided we fall – we can’t go far alone, we need each other. Breeders need other breeders. We need to exchange our bloodlines, our knowledge, we need to educate public about Presa Canario and we simply need to help each other instead of dragging others down. This is why I created this new project:

– this websites are not workng at this moment, but I plan to get them back to live in the near future. All articles are available on

It’s not working like it should yet but in the future it should be a good place where we will be able to have a place to talk about the breed and also showcase our kennels and market puppies for sale, making it easier for new owners to find what they’re looking for. It will be a place where everybody will be welcomed and nobody will be above others. We will all work towards events and Presa meetings and have a place to advertise them no matter the Club, registration or affiliations. 

It’s important for me that my dogs are placed with people who will love them and take the best possible care of them for the rest of their lives. These are ultimate animals bred to keep a sound mind, functionality, and good type.

My dogs were exported all over the world and can be found all over Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Asia. 

They are kept as companions, working dogs, and attended dog shows. I believe in total dog. Paraphrasing Antonio Martinez “father of Dogo Argentino” I want to have dogs that can go straight from the show ring into the field and work.

Having the opportunity I would like to say – thank you – to Paweł Kasprzak, Omar Sobarzo Medina, Antonio Griñan, Manuel and Valeria Curtó, and Ghostdog – for their help and good advice and also for letting me use their materials. The list got longer through the years but this was the people who were here in the beginning.
