The Cane Corso

The Cane Corso is a large-sized breed of dog. They were originally bred in Italy as a working dog, but they are now popular pets in many countries. They are known for their intelligence, their strength, and their muscular, athletic build.

Physical Characteristics

Cane Corsos are large, muscular dogs with a distinctive appearance. They have a square-shaped head, a black nose, and a short, smooth coat. They come in colors such as black, fawn, red, and brindle. They stand up to 28 inches tall and weigh up to 110 pounds.


Cane Corsos are known for their intelligence, their strength, and their protective, loyal nature. They are good with children and other animals, but they need early socialization and training to prevent aggressive behavior. They are also highly energetic and need regular exercise and mental stimulation. They are intelligent and can be easily trained, but they can also be stubborn and independent.


Cane Corsos were first bred in Italy in the 16th century as working dogs. They were used for a variety of tasks, including guarding property, hunting game, and protecting livestock. In 2010, the American Kennel Club recognized the breed and they have been popular pets in the United States ever since.


Cane Corsos are generally healthy dogs, but they can be prone to certain health conditions. These include hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, and bloat. Regular check-ups and proper care can help prevent or manage these conditions and keep your Cane Corso happy and healthy.
