The Cane Corso's lineage goes back to ancient Roman Times when they were mostly seen as guard dogs; in fact the breeds name roughly translates from Latin as "protector". The smart, beautiful and trainable Corso is the epitome of a fearless protector. At about 28 inches at the shoulder and weighing more than 100 pounds the Corso's alert expression is the first line of defense to protect your home and family.
Corso's are intelligent, eager to please, and loyal to their humans. As with any other guardian dog, responsible breeding and early socialization is vital.
