    Hi guys, please excuse me in advance if this isn't the correct forum to ask this question, but I need some help to identify what kind of dog is mine. The guy who sold it to my parents told them it's a Presa Canario, but looking at pictures in the internet, he doesn't look like one. We've been looking at pictures of other mastiffs, and we think that it's either a Boerboel or a Tosa Inu. Are you guys able to recognize the type of dog he is? In these pictures, he's 4 years and 10 months old, he's 97 lb and 25 1/2 - 26 inches tall from floor to withers.

    Hey Robert, that‘s a great looking dog! Welcome to the forum. He could be a Presa + X mix. I can see Presa features in him in some pictures. I was even seeing some Fila in of them, but may be wrong. I don‘t think anybody will be able to tell you with full certainty, but you be getting new opinions and perspectives.

    Also, height and weight would be in line with a Presa.

    Thanks for your reply @TylerDurden . I think you're right about it being a mix. Our dog's dewlap, color and wrinkles in his face, is what doesn't convince us much that he's a Presa, but as you say, he could be a mix. We're not familiar with mastiffs, that's why we're a bit confused, and we are just curious of his breed. We love him nevertheless :)

    From my view and dont see any presa in him, but he looks like a boerboel or tosa mix who could have guess maybe even fila little bit. He is beautiful and love him no matter which breed he is :)

    Just looking I would say he had some Fila(Brazillian Mastiff) and possibly some Tosa, or Boerboel... I would suggest a dna test to be exact. I dont personally see any Pressa....
