Overview
The Cane Corso Mastiff is believed to have descended from the old Roman war dogs, Canis Pugnax. They were highly valued by hunters and farmers because of their immense power, loyalty, speed, courage, and willingness to work. Throughout the Middle Ages, these dogs were terrific hunters and wonderful bull baiters. The Cane Corso Mastiff today is still used on farms and hunting purposes. This breed is very powerful and sturdy giving him a bad reputation of being aggressive.
Character
The Cane Corso Mastiff is somewhat fearless and is very devoted. Due to the power of this breed, he is not recommended for everyone but does make a lovely companion given the right training and socialization. This breed is a fearless family protector but does make a wonderful companion given the right environment. The Cane Corso Mastiff has a very balanced temperament, and despite his size and all around appearance, makes a great family pet.
Temperament
Aloof around strangers, protective, and loyal, this breed does make a good companion. The Cane Corso Mastiff does make a lovely companion, but should not be left unsupervised around children due to his sheer size and power. He is very dependable around children in his family, but can be protective around others. The Cane Corso Mastiff can live in peace with cats and other dogs however should not be trusted around very small animals.
Care
The Cane Corso Mastiff is a very light shedder making grooming very simple. A wipe down with a damp cloth and occasional brushing and/or combing with a firm bristle or rubber brush should be sufficient. The Cane Corso Mastiff requires minimal grooming, although around the mouth should be cleaned regularly as this breed has the tendency to drool quite a bit. The eyes should also require care professionally as they are very droopy which can cause irritation.
Coat
The Cane Corso Mastiff has a very short, smooth and dense coat that should be harsh to the touch, and somewhat coarse. The coat should remain shiny, however should never be silky. The hair should never be smooth, but be very dense, rough, and shiny. This breed sheds little hair so removing it should be fairly simple using a specially designer rubber glove.
Training
The Cane Corso Mastiff is not recommended for the average handler. He is very powerful and can be dominant if not in the right home. The handler should always remain firm and consistent. A variety of training methods work best with this somewhat willful breed. A dominant handler is a must. The Cane Corso Mastiff is very trainable being agile and intelligent. He is very responsive to training, however obedience classes are recommended at an early stage in life.
Activity
The Cane Corso Mastiff needs lots of exercise to stay healthy and active. This breed requires a fenced in yard to maintain his powerful muscles and immense strength. The Cane Corso Mastiff is an ideal jogging companion and loves to go on long hikes with his master. This breed requires at least 90 minutes of exercise per day, however more is recommended to keep his muscles in great shape.
Ownership
Help reduce the number of Cane Corso Mastiff puppies in shelters by doing your due diligence. Many puppies are often purchased with little or no knowledge of what goes into parenting one. Uneducated decisions often leave the puppy in need of adoption and in the care of rescue groups. Bringing home a puppy into your family has many benefits but we first implore you to educate yourself. An informed decision will take into account the characteristics of the breed, your lifestyle, expected veterinary care, the demands and limitations of owning one, their activity requirements and levels of companionship required.

No dog should be an 'outside only' dog anymore. It is not fair to the dog. The Cane Corso is a friendly, family oriented dog. They need affection, exercise and mental stimulation.

Yes, Corso tails are docked. The length usually depends on the breed some longer some shorter. My Corso was done at 5 days old he is now 2yrs and it measures 5".

4TH Vertebrae is the AKC standard. They can be shorter (like a nub), but 4th vertebrae is about 1/3 of the tail. So the tail will seem longer then most breeds with docked tails.

Looking into getting a puppy cane, i'm 19. Experience with pitbulls and labs I was looking into getting a cane within the next few weeks, maybe months. However, if i get a puppy now, socialize him daily, will he be okay with a puppy rottweiler in a few months? or a year or so? I love this breed and have been around them. But moving in with my boyfriend, he wants to get a rottweiler. I just need advice, help. ANYTHING. Need to do my research and research is done best by people who have experience.

I have a pit and have had 3 great corsos. the corsos are better behaved (generally), and easier to train. they are massively stronger than pits and bred to be guards, not companions or fighters. you have to work with them a lot to make sure they don't see every new person as a threat to you and your family. if they do see people that way, you won't be able to stop them from protecting you. In their dog-mind, it is all defense, from a human's mind, its being killed by a 130 pound dog. Just my 2 cents. i think they are the greatest dogs ever. They do have short lives, though, topping out around 8-10 years old due to size.

Cane Corso dog breeds were bred for war. Pure militant dogs the want to attack anything that looks like a threat.
