Dogs in Tenerife

Toy dog with white, curly, fluffy fur, which is said to have originated in Tenerife.

The Bichon Tenerife is one of 4 varieties of Bichon breeds. The other three being Maltese, Havanese and Bolognaise.

Dogo Canario

Dogo Canario

A breed of dog from the island of Tenerife on the Canary Islands

The Dogo Canario is similar to the mastiff and is large thick set shepherd dog. It has a broad, square head and a powerful, muscular shape.  The ears are often cropped for safety while working with cattle. It is also known as the Canary Mastiff, and was used as guard dogs by peasants, working in the fields.

The breed is said to have been created as a result of the Roman Conquest of Britain from around 43AD. Both the Romans and British had dogs fighting alongside them: the Romans used a breed called Molossus from Greece and the British a broad-mouthed Mastiff. The Romans were so impressed by the latter that they later bred from the 2 breeds and the resultant breed became the Dogo Canario, as the Romans exported the dogs to Spain for guarding, hunting big game and baiting.

The breed can be suspicious of strangers, which of course makes them good guard dogs and they can be difficult to train if not tackled early.
