Intelligent: Cane Corso dogs are highly intelligent and capable of learning many commands. 

Powerful Guard Dog: Just one glance at this strong, imposing breed, and it will send trespassers and predators packing! Cane Corsos are very protective and make excellent guard dogs; however, they can become aggressive and even dangerous if they are not socialized, trained, and controlled correctly. A Cane Corso is for experienced dog owners. 

Hard Worker: The Cane Corso was bred to work and is happiest when busy. If you don’t have farm work for your Corso, you’ll want to make sure they participate in dog sports or other types of work. 

Strong and Sleek: Packed with muscle, these dogs need (and want) vigorous exercise! Relatives of the Neopoliaitan Mastiff, this breed is more compact and graceful than its cousin. 

Loyal Companion: Although not affectionate, this breed loves his family fiercely and takes his job as a protector very seriously. He is a family-only breed and will not be friendly to strangers.

Cane Corsos are part of a subcategory of working dogs called Mollosers. Mollosers - Mastiff-type dogs - date back to ancient Greece. When Rome overtook Greece, the Romans brought these powerful guard dogs back to Italy and began breeding them with Italian dogs. These dogs became the ancestors of our modern Cane Corse and the Neapolitan Mastiff. 

The original Corsi were used in war; buckets of flaming oil were strapped to their backs, and they were sent into the enemy territory. 

In the fifth century, Cane Corsi became mostly guard dogs for properties and livestock on Italian farms. They were also used for hunting wild boar.

With continual economic and political upheaval, and farms becoming more mechanized, the breed was seen less and less and almost became extinct in the mid-20th century.  

In the 1970s, the Society of Cane Corso Lovers was formed; their goal was to save the breed from extinction. The first Cane Corso came to America in 1988, and in 2010 the Cane Corse was added to the AKC registry. 

An adult Cane Corso will be 23-27 inches tall at the shoulder and weigh 90-100 pounds. 

You can expect your Cane Corso to live 9-12 years.

The Cane Corse has a strong, sturdy, athletic build. Their ears can be cropped or uncropped. 

They have a short coat that can be black, grey, fawn, red, or brindle (brown with streaks of another color). Fawn and red dogs will have a grey or black mask on their face. They may also have white patches on their body, such as on their chest, throat, or paws.

A Cane Corso will need to be brushed once a week and bathed occasionally. They have an undercoat which they will shed twice a year. 

You will also need to brush their teeth and trim their nails regularly.

The Cane Corso is generally a healthy breed, but there are a few things their owners should know.

Like many large breeds, they are susceptible to hip dysplasia. Hip dysplasia is when the ball and socket joint in the hip doesn’t develop properly. Although this is a genetic condition, other factors play a part in hip dysplasia. A poor diet, sudden weight gain or growth, an overweight dog, or excessive and hard exercise can contribute to and aggravate hip dysplasia. 

It’s essential to be proactive while your Cane Corso puppy is growing and developing. Keep your puppy from excessive running on hard surfaces and from jumping from heights. Talk to your breeder and vet about a healthy puppy diet and stick to the recommended amount of food! A puppy that grows too fast will have problems later. 

The breed is susceptible to eye abnormalities such as entropion, ectropion, and cherry eye. 

Cane Corsi are also at risk for Gastric Torsion, which is when the stomach twists on itself and cuts the blood flow. Learn to recognize the symptoms so you can take action immediately, as it can be fatal for your dog. 

Allergens are caused by dander, which is dead skin cells. Both animals and humans shed these dead skin cells. Dander is attached to the hair that animals shed. 

The Cane Corso is not a hypoallergenic breed. They are moderate shedders, and you can keep allergens to a minimum with regular bathing and brushing. However, if you or someone in your home has animal allergy concerns, please consult your family physician before adopting a puppy.
