About Cane Corsos

A direct descendant of the old Roman Molossian, “Canis Pugnax,” the Cane Corso has long been a companion of the Italian people.  Used in battles, for hunting large game, as a personal guard dog, and as a drover that would help to drive the cattle to market, it’s no wonder that the Cane Corso was so favored throughout Italy.
