Presa Canario

Carlotta is one of the latest arrivals at NCCR. She is a female Presa Canario, or Canary Mastiff, originating in the Canary Islands of Spain. This breed was originally used for guarding cattle. They can become extremely protective of their home and family and may be suspicious of strangers.  She is very friendly to all humans she's met so far, rides great in the car and seems to like all of her doggie neighbors.   We were told she gets along great with people and male dogs, but does not care for female dogs.  An adopter who is familiar with this or similar breeds and a fenced yard is required.

A video of Carlotta is posted on NCCR's website (caninerescue.org) under the Video tab. 

Carlotta is spayed, vaccinated and microchipped.  Her adoption fee is $190.00.  (cash or check only, we are unable to accept credit cards)

Carlotta is kindly sponsored by Morgan Racicot and John and Susan Harrell .  Thank you!

 If you think you might be interested in adopting, your first step should be to complete an adoption application which you'll find under each dog's photo.  If you are on Petfinder, you will need to go to our webpage at http://www.caninerescue.org/available-pets/ (just copy and paste that link in your browser).   The application to adopt is  in the very lower left hand corner of each pet's webpage. 

We do adopt out of state, however we do not transport or ship dogs.  Potential adopter must be able and willing to travel to the Rescue to meet the dog they are interested in.  

*PLEASE double check all of the phone numbers that you provide as if they are incorrect, we will be unable to process your application.  Please also let your references know that someone from NCCR will be calling them. Most adoption team members call from their personal phone so advise your references that there may be an unknown number or a private number calling them.  

NYS Registration #RR028.
