Remember the Presa Canario?
From Spain,the Island of Majorca comes another Presa-the Presa Mallorquin.
The Presa Mallorquin is closer in size rank to the APBT and a match up will be more realistic.
It is however a very rare,exotic dog breed.
So rare that a new wave of enthusiast have sprung up in several countries.
In it’s native Spain,no more than about 250 dogs exist according to the registers.
This is very rare,when compared to the APBT.
Very rare by any standards.
Unlike the APBT,the Mallorquin is a very good guard dog.
From baiting and fighting lines like the APBT,the Mallorquin almost became extinct.
Male weight is 35 kg -38 kg.Male height is 21.5 inches to 23 inches.
This makes it larger than an APBT.
It is also a very strong dog,with a strong large head,suggesting a strong bite force.
A head strong dog,it requires experienced owners.
We will write more about this breed in detail soon.
The closest we came to it in Nigeria was a an American dog,which was mixed with an American Bull dog.
The real Presa Mallorquin has a distant resemblance to a tall APBT-somewhat.
