Cane Corso breed information

These are strong, sturdy dogs with an attitude to match. Standing at about 23 to 27.5 inches high and reaching 100 pounds, the Cane Corso is an intelligent and eager dog that requires early training and socialization. To match their size and energy level, these dogs are best suited to larger homes with outdoor access. Very loyal to human family members, the Cane Corso is happy to live alongside loving owners of all ages, though owners should take care when kids are around puppies that are still in obedience school.

History of the Cane Corso

The Cane Corso breed dates back to ancient Rome. This breed, also known as Italian Mastiff or colloquially as the Roman War Dog, fought with Roman legions, guarded farms and flock, and was used to catch prey. Cane Corso dogs are so large and intimidating that it's easy to understand how they played this role of protection.

This ancient Italian breed once roamed throughout Italy but in the mid 1900s was found primarily in southern Italy. In the 60s and 70s, this breed was nearly driven to extinction. The modern Cane Corso breed is derived from the breeding of some remaining Cane Corso dogs in the 1980s.

The breed was brought to the United States in the late 1980s and became officially recognized by the American Kennel Club (AKC) in 2010.

Colors & Types of Cane Corso Puppies

The most common color for this breed's coat is Black. However, you may be surprised to hear that Cane Corso dogs come in a variety of colors, including Grey, Fawn, and Red. Also, Cane Corsos can have brindle variations, including Black Brindle and Chestnut Brindle.

Officially there is one breed of Cane Corso. However, many Cane Corso breeders divide this breed into two segments: traditional Corsos and non-traditional Corsos.

Traditional Corsos are those that purely follow in the lineage of the original Cane Corsos that were brought to the United States in the 1980s. Non-traditional Corsos are also descendants of the same lineage, but have been mixed with Boxers, Great Danes, and other breeds, given the limited number of Cane Corsos available at that time.

Are Cane Corsos Good Pets?

A Cane Corso would make a great house dog for the right kind of family. Cane Corsos are active and social, and require adequate training and socialization from a young age. Given their high level of intelligence and calm demeanor, this breed can be easily trained. If properly trained, Corsos can make great play partners with older kids. However, Cane Corsos are not ideal for families with toddlers or small children. These massive dogs could accidentally trample over a small child and hurt them without meaning to.

If you are looking for a companion to protect your family or a guard dog to protect your home, look no further. The Cane Corso is not only massive, muscular, and fearless, but is also loyal to you and your family. It is in this breed's instinct to protect and guard.

Cane Corsos are not hypoallergenic. Their coat sheds throughout the year and especially during the spring. So if someone in your family is allergic to dander or has asthma, this breed may not be the perfect fit for you.

How Much Does a Cane Corso Cost?

Cane Corso pups can vary significantly in price, from $1,500 to $4,000 or more. The average price of available Cane Corso puppies posted on Mawoo Pets is around $2,500.

The price of puppies for sale from Cane Corso breeders can range depending on the location of the breeder, the breeder's experience, the breeding parents' lineage, and their health and socialization practices.

What Breeds Are Related to the Cane Corso?

This large-boned breed is difficult to mistake given its unique look and stature. Perhaps the most similar looking working dog is the Presa Canario, which hails from the Spanish Canary Islands. But Presa Canarios can weigh 140 lb or more, and are larger than Cane Corsos on average.

While some think that Cane Corsos are related to American Pit Bulls or Dogo Argentinos, these breeds are in fact unrelated. American Pit Bulls can weigh up to 40-50 lb and Dogo Argentinos can weigh up to 90-100lb. But Cane Corsos are even larger, sometimes weighing 100 lb or more. Their shape, musculature, and temperament is also significantly different.

How To Find a Cane Corso Puppy

If you are in luck, you may find a Cane Corso puppy for adoption at your local shelter or rescue. However, given the popularity of this breed, it can be quite difficult to find a purebred Cane Corso for adoption.

If you are set on getting a Corso and do not have luck adopting, there are many reputable Cane Corso breeders across the United States, from California, to West Virginia, to Indiana, to Pennsylvania.

At Mawoo Pets, we have vetted Cane Corso breeders to identify responsible breeders who follow critical health, safety, and socialization standards. As you browse our available Cane Corso puppies, if you find the puppy of your choice, our team can help coordinate shipping to your home.

Ethical breeders proactively screen their breeding stock for medical issues common to this breed. Some of the most common health issues for Cane Corsos are hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, and eye problems such as entropion. The best Cane Corso breeders will genetically test their breeding parents and do regular veterinary checks to screen for these health problems. This helps ensure that the Cane Corso puppy of your dreams stands the best chance for a healthy, happy life.
