Presa Canario vs Pitbull Appearance
If you want a breed that will stop people dead in their tracks out of fear, then either a Presa Canario or Pitbull is definitely the right breed for you. With large, broad heads and big, burly bodies, both of these canines have truly impressive appearances.
Both breeds can easily be mistaken for the other due to their strikingly similar appearances. However, the Presa Canario is much larger than the Pitbull, tipping the scale at almost double the Pit’s weight.
