Dog Breeds: Cane Corso vs. Presa Canario

 These loyal dogs have become popular companions recently. In particular, the Cane Corso dog rose from 40th to 16th in popularity among American Kennel Club breeds in a few years. 

 Both species have gained popularity, but they have also received unwanted attention because to their supposed hostility.

The Spanish Presa Canario, or Canary Mastiff, is from the Canary Islands. The Spanish brought the precursor of the Presa Canario to the Canary Islands. 

These Mastiff-type canines were mated with indigenous dogs to make a formidable guardian for farmers to defend livestock from predators.
