Cane Corso Italian Mastiffs have a instinctively very protective nature
and yet is able to discern friend from foe. The Cane Corso
instinctively knows when to become a defensive and protective dog for
its owner, his grounds, the house and the whole family. With proper
training the Italian mastiff is submissive to his family, suspicious of
strangers, and a big old lap dog.
The Cane Corso Italiano is not for everyone! Please research the
breed and look through the
site before even considering
getting one. Check out the About page for general Cane Corso
information. They are very large dogs which means they cost more

toys to buy, much heavier crates to contain them, etc. They require extensive socialization,
firm training as they are a
guardian breed. It's the best combination of a guard
dog and companion possible IF that is what you are looking for. Cane Corsos

So many to choose from! How to decide? Here's some help to
help you figure it all out.
The Head! Everyone
wants a good head but you have to look at the body carrying that head
around! A puppy's head is not a clear indicator of what it will
looks like as an adult so you need to look at the body too.
Pictures - Always looks
for pictures of the parents standing up, from a side view (or close) and
possibly the front. It's impossible to study the body while
sitting or in a weird position like standing with the front legs on top
of something else.
Cute Puppy - All puppies
are cute! Look at the parents for your best indication of what the
puppy will end up like (with variation of course). All puppies
have big feet, but the parents bone size is a good key. If the
parents are fine boned the puppy will probably be as well.
Muscle - The mastiff is
meant to be a large breed. If the parents don't look thick don't
expect the puppy to be. But don't expect a puppy to be necessarily
right away. They go through a long tall and skinny phase. If
the dog looks small it probably is regardless of what the weight on the
page says. Look for comparison points like people etc.
The Butt - Many Corsos
have a huge chest and a tiny butt. This isn't balanced as it
should be. There should be a rear end that is muscular and
balanced to match the front end.
Topline - When evaluating
from a side view, the top of the back should be close to completely
horizontal if not descending. A hunch back look or a butt that is
inches higher than the rear end is not balanced and often leads to poor
Champion Lines - All
Corsos are from champion lines! So everyone can list off champions
in the pedigree. Champions in the last few generations is a good
thing but nothing to live by.
Cane Corso is located outside Athens, Georgia.
