Now I love dogs probably more than I like most people, but this one scared the crap out of me. It wasn't aggressive in any way, it was just big, bloody big.
It was early in the year, around March or April and I was on a photoshoot in the Miami area. I remember it being stupidly hot and humid even at sunrise when we started shooting on the beach. It was so uncomfortable that we soon had to admit defeat and head back to the house where one of the models was living. I had heard this beast of a K9 barking for the previous hour from a distant corner of the huge mansion like house. I've seen smaller horses than this dog.
Does anyone know what breed of dog this is?
Yes I know it's a poor photo, but its all I've got handy.
We also used him as a prop for the shoot - below is a photo of that mornings pretty girl with the beast.
Update: Fast forward the best part of a year... I've just had an email from Claudia Costa (the pretty girl with the beast), and she tells me that the dog in question is a Presa. Thank you Claudia for clearing that up. :-)
