Cane Corso Information
The Cane Corso looks intimating – which is exactly the point. He descends from the Canis Pugnax, an ancient Roman dog breed that was used to hunt wild animals and serve in battle. In later years, he acted as a watch dog overseeing his owner’s property. His strong, athletic build and assertive, confident nature give him a tough demeanor. In reality, he’s an affectionate, smart dog who’s intensively loyal to his family.
Speaking of family, the Cane Corso gets along great with kids and other pets. He does well with training, although you should make sure this breed gets plenty of exercise to stay on his best behavior.
This breed has increased in popularity in recent years – what’s old is new again apparently!
