I'm scared to go outside in case Tito is there!
I'm at my buddies, and the next basement sweet has a huge presa canera named Tito. Now, Tito is a fraidy cat but he's still scary as hell. Last time I was here, I went to leave and opened the door and tito was standing there staring at me and I startled him. So I just went, "AH! TITO" And slammed the door. A few minutes later I went to sneak out and he was still in the back yard and was growling at me and came toward me. I'm usually not scared of dogs, but I was all hung over and kind of startled so wasn't on my game. His owner was there, luckily, but it still has me a lil' dog-shy.

That's a presa...

1. Whoever leashed that dog in that pic is a serious idiot.
He's got the leash hooked to the wrong loop. It's called a choke collar, and you're doing it wrong.

Presas, canes, dogos...all pretty scary looking dogs, regardless.

2. I'm sorry about your situation
but you do know how much I wanted this to be about Tito Jackson, don't you? ;)

(Chat with the owner if you can't make friends with the dog. Plenty of folks here will have advice, soon to follow.)

4. What you got against Tito?


Sure, he's no Jermaine, but at least he's not Michael

5. The first time I've ever heard of a Presa was when that lady was mauled to death in SF

6. That is unfortunately where my mind goes too
I really don't know much about the breed but I'm quite certain that the arrogant, irresponsible assholes in that case didn't do their reputation any favors.
