What do you all think about a Presa for a home defense dog? I've talked with the breeders and those at elpresa.com and of course they all say that defense and guarding is one of the things these dogs are best at. The main reason I'm interested in the presa over other dogs: 1. Short haired and not bad on the shedding. 2. Extremely loyal to the family but distrusting of strangers. 3. Very tough dog that will reduce my chance of even having to get involved if a home invader threatens me. 4. I've never been a fan of smaller dogs and these are far from small. 5. I just love the look of them! The only downside that I can see is the price. They usually want about $1200 for them but I've heard of other tough breeds (like Rottweilers, Dobermans, German Shephards) that run as much as $3000.
