A Presa Canario is a very large, stubborn and dominant dog, and it is a breed that requires socialization and obedience training. If Presa Canarios are not socialized with other dogs at an early age, then they may not be able to peacefully co-exist with another dominant dog breed. This dog breed is strong-tempered, and is not generally recommended for new or novice dog owners.
Presa Canarios are known to be among the most dangerous of all dog breeds, as they are extremely protective of what they believe to be their territory. This breed has been linked to a number of fatal attacks, and an attack by this dog breed is very likely to result in severe injuries or even death.
The aggressive nature of a Presa Canario can lead to victim’s sustaining short-term or even permanent injuries. Scarring, broken bones, cuts and lacerations, and disfigurement are among some of more common injuries that can result from these attacks.
Determining Liability in Presa Canario Dog Attacks
The cost of injuries from Presa Canario dog attacks can be very high, particularly when injuries from these bites and attacks are life changing. These injuries can greatly impact a victim’s life.
If an individual’s Presa Canario bites or attacks another person, then the dog owner may be held liable for the victim’s sustained injuries. Although it may still depend on the state’s dog bite laws and leash laws, dog owners generally pay for the victim’s medical bills and other related expenses.
