The Cane Corso originated in Italy and is a large-boned, muscular dog. Before 1988, he only seemed to exist in Southern Italy and was a rare dog to find but he has appeared in numerous paintings throughout Italy’s rich history.
His coat is short, thick and coarse and is waterproof. It can be gray, fawn, black, red or have brindle varieties in colour and the dog might also have a gray or black mask. He’s easy to train and needs lots of exercise because he’s very athletic. He’s very affectionate and bonds closely with families and children. His coat sheds lightly so it only needs the occasional brush. He stands at 23.5 – 27.5 inches high.
