History

The Dogo Canario It is a classic moloso. Es la descendencia de un antiguo y en esta forma antigua sólo se encuentra raramente en Europa Central hoy en día. It has many names: Presa Canario, Perro de Presa, Perro de Toro, Alano o Presa Canario. Dogs of the current type Dogo Canario existían todavía hace 200 years everywhere. They were the old saupackers, bear teethers, guard dogs, butcher dogs, the ancestors of the current great danes, bulldogs, boxers and mastiffs. They are extremely strong and bulky dogs, que aún hoy se resumen como molosos. Ya fueron criados en la antigüedad y siempre han sido muy apreciados. They were used on large farms, with livestock herds or for example on merchant ships such as guard and protection dogs, sirvieron como perros de pastoreo y como perros de caza para jabalíes u osos. They served rulers like Hammurabi as war dogs, they had them carved in stone in full recognition does 3700 years.

Due to its strength, courage and determination, have been used as fighting dogs in the arenas of animal fighting since Roman times. Molossians have a commanding head with a rather short snout and long lips.. The ears are usually worn hanging. Según las tradiciones de la antigüedad en palabras e imágenes, las principales características del moloso han permanecido esencialmente iguales durante miles de años, pero en los últimos siglos y especialmente debido a la moderna cría de perros, the classic type of molosser has been lost to some extent. In extreme cases strange shapes have been bred with many extremely short folds or snouts such as bulldogs or giants like him Great Dane or the Mastiff. The Dog is still raised in his homeland only for his performance at work.

Therefore, chances are that the Dogo Canario todavía personifique el tipo Molosoide como era común en los viejos tiempos. It is clearly recognized as trotting, pero no sufre de exageraciones cultivadas de ninguna característica o rasgo corporal. Sólo se puede esperar que siga siendo así. Unfortunately, breeders are very much at odds with Dogo Canario. They haven't even managed to agree on a name and a registry office. Since 1991 has been officially considered as “The Canary Presa Dog” entre los símbolos naturales de las Islas Canarias. Meanwhile in 2001 the Spanish Ministry of Agriculture recognized these dogs as a national breed also under the name of Dogo Canario, the same dogs were then provisionally recognized as Dogo Canario by the world federation FCI in 2001 and finally in 2011. Other names are Perro de Presa y Alano. Alano It is an old word that means Great Dane.

Physical characteristics

The Dogo Canario, Perro de Presa, Perro de Toro, Alano o Presa Canario – all designations for the same four-legged friend – he is an elegant dog that radiates athletic power. He is an athletic, muscular, alargado pero sin embargo típico moloso.

The skull-muzzle ratio is approximately 6:4. The upper lip rests a little flaccidly on the lower one. The eyes, medium-sized, they are oval and hazelnut, the ears, high, they are separated from each other and are shaped like a button; únicamente se las amputa para recordar su función original de perro de combate. The neck, long and muscular, shows a slight dewlap. The tail is implanted high: thick at the base, is tuned to the extreme. El vientre está retraído, pero las últimas costillas destacan sólo ligeramente, giving a harmonious harp shape. Limbs are sturdy, muscular and perfectly plumb; angulation of the hind limbs is not very marked.

The difference between male and female bulldogs desired by the FCI standard is therefore unnaturally large. In any case, desires of this standard for outward appearance should not be taken so seriously.

Because fortunately this originally preserved dog breed, robust and healthy has set its standard “por sí misma”, more exactly for their performance at work, and has kept it in the practice of life until today. People, que ahora quiere ponerlo en un estándar de la cría moderna de perros con pedigrí, don't even agree to the principle, as we can see in its history of the breed. La cría moderna de perros con pedigrí no le ha hecho bien a ninguna raza de perro, both in terms of health and character. In old times, the Bulldog fitted with pleasure to the ears, de modo que éstas sobresalían hacia arriba. This is now prohibited. Hoy en día muestran grandes orejas colgantes hacia abajo.
