It is commonly stated that there are 7 islands in the Canary Islands. But the Canary Islands include (from largest to smallest): Tenerife, Fuerteventura, Gran Canaria, Lanza…rote, La Palma, La Gomera, El Hierro, La Graciosa, Alegranza, Isla de Lobos, Montaña Clara, Roque del Este and Roque del Oeste. So there are in fact 13 at present. It is very possible with the volcanic activity off La Palma that another is soon to be created (Dec 2011-2013)

It is… thought that the dense population of an endemic breed of large and fierce dogs, like the Presa Canario, was the characteristic that most struck the few ancient Romans who established contact with the islands by the sea.

The dogs were probably seals.
