Stay Calm, I know I'm Beautiful

Presa Canario | 100lbs | Female | 1 year old | Good with dogs | Unknown with cats | Older kids | Crate trained | House trained | Fostered in Guelph, ON

Vetting: Bullet has bilateral medial luxating patellas that severely affect her comfort and ability to live a playful life. She is currently on restricted activity and pain meds to help her be comfortable, but this will be a long journey for her! She will need surgery on both knees, with a few month recovery period between the surgeries. We have her first one booked in with a surgeon at the end of February (fingers crossed we can move it sooner too). Other than this she has been given a clean bill of health, and her long term prognosis after surgeries is quite good!

Adoption Fee: $450


Let’s make one thing clear from the start, this girl is definitely not as quick as her name makes her seem ;) 

Bullet is a 1 year old Presa Canario who unfortunately has bilateral luxating patellas, and will be going through two separate surgeries during her time  with us. Bullet was surrendered due to her medical needs and we are very excited to give her the chance at a happy and comfortable life! If you would like to support her on her journey, please send an email to to ask us how!

Now for the good stuff :)

While Bullet currently isn’t able to have much fun physically, she does like to keep herself busy. Currently, Bullet’s foster mom is working on her obedience training and having some fun with mental stimulation. Her favorites are definitely her food stuffed toys, but she will also happily work on her training as a form of her meals! Really, anything with food is a win for this girl. This, unfortunately, will be her primary way of getting exercise for the next 4-6 months, but in the end, this will be what is best for her. 

Bullet is good with tolerant, large breed dogs  and has previously lived with another male dog. Bullet is crate and house trained but she does whine on occasion when she can hear the other dogs in her foster home having fun without her. Bullet likes to have a comfy bed to lay on in her crate but if she has not had enough mental exercise, she will try to chew on bedding and blankets. Bullet should not be trusted with any toys while she is not being directly supervised, and she will need to have durable and large toys to ensure she does not tear them up or ingest anything she is not supposed to. 

Bullet is working on her leash manners as she previously lived a farm life. Bullet can be reactive on leash and currently can only do 5-10 minute walks due to her hind end issues. It is unlikely that Bullet will ever be a high energy dog able to go on long hikes with her forever family; however, she will enjoy a day filled with movies, a comfy couch and snacks! Bullet is an adventurous girl and loves to play so this is something she is definitely excited to be able to do once her back end is top notch!

Bullet is working on her manners as she likes to bark when meeting new people that she is unsure of. She is great with kids but she is a very large girl and sometimes forgets just how big she is. Bullet also barks in her foster home if she sees someone passing by who she is not familiar with. 

Here’s what Bullet’s foster mom wants you to know about her:

“I am going to warn you now, this girl is going to steal your heart and she is going to steal it quickly. She might also steal your meal but it will be worth it - I promise.

Bullet is so sweet, but she is also a very independent, strong-headed and protective girl. Her people are her people and she is as loyal as they come. When meeting both dogs and people, she comes in hot, but quickly catches herself and remembers how to be polite within just a few moments. This girl may just be everything you are looking for, but only humans who have mastiff experience will be considered for her forever people.”
