Hello.  I am Bernice, a bombshell of a blonde, 6-year-old Presa Canario.  I am a very special lady and I am looking for a very special home.  I am blind in one eye and have poor hearing. I need a calm, patient home with no children under the age of 10 years where I can relax and establish a routine. I would be ok with another dog in the home as long as they are over 40 pounds and the home can do slow introductions with me. I am very sweet, but I am a big, strong girl. I need a home who can handle my size, breed and disabilities. I came to Speranza in May of 2018.


I was saved by Speranza from a local kill shelter as my time was running out.  Janine saw my picture and just had to give me a chance at life. Now I am just waiting to find my new family.

Check out my report card!

I am a very large dog and I very strong.  I pull on leash, but do very well with a harness.  I am very sweet and eager to please. I need a family that will work with me to learn my new surroundings, routine and how to live the good life.  I would prefer a family with breed specific experience.
