Most responsible breeders never let their pups go until they are at least 8 weeks old. That would make me worry. I've heard that in those weeks, the mom teaches them "doggie manners". I would go with another breeder because if they are willing to adopt pups out at only 6 weeks, are they doing it for the $, or to make healthy well tempered Corso's?

I agree with the other response - pups learn alot from their moms and playing with the other pups. Many believe if they can eat on their own that is suffice. So untrue, 8-10 weeks in when pup should leave the litter. Other then that your Corso should be socialed often with other dogs and people of all ages so he will be able to adjust to what ever travel situation you put him in.

That "breeder" should not be allowing any puppy to leave prior to 8 weeks of age. The socialization skills the puppy learns from it's mother and interacting with its brothers and sisters is crucial during that 5-8 week range.
