The Cane Corso is a great guard dog, extremely loyal to its family and quite aloof with strangers. 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 mastiff information.  They are very large dogs which means they cost more to go to the vet, more to give treatments to, more food to feed, bigger 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 are great with children when raised with them, trained  and socialized properly.

The Cane Corso puppy bonds to his family and becomes quite attached especially to the children. The Cane Corsos enjoy being included in the family activities and are very athletic and enjoy being worked.  The Cane Corso is not to be left in the backyard to their own devices.  They will become large, destructive unhappy animals so make sure this breed is right for you!  Sovrana Cane Corso is happy to answer any questions you have about the Cane Corso breed, health, and puppy availability.  You as a potential buyer need to do your own homework and research as well.

Cane Corsos are large, rare, and expensive dogs to raise, show, train, and breed properly.  If you are looking for the cheapest Corso around, this is not the site for you.  Sovrana Cane Corso breeds champion quality, stable temperaments, champion lined, health guaranteed puppies with lifetime support.  If you want a $500 dog, a Corso is not for you.  If you do find a cheap Corso, buyer beware.    Sometimes you get lucky, and sometimes you just get what you pay for.  Sovrana Cane Corso is for those looking for a high quality, healthy, strong, stable, and protective dog to love and protect you and your loved ones.


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 movement.

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.
