Cane Corso. By Kerli.-Noble, majestic, and powerful in presence, the Cane Corso is a muscular and large-boned breed. One of two native Italian "mastiff type" dogs that descendedfrom the Roman canis Pugnaces, the breed's name derives from the Latin "Cohors" which means "Guardian" and "Protector."AKC. So BEAUTIFUL!
If you want a dog who... Is massive and powerful Has a short easy-care coat Is calm and quiet indoors as an adult Makes an imposing watchdog Is serious and self-assured with strangers, yet generally mild-mannered unless aroused Compared to other mastiffs, is more energetic, more athletic, and more responsive to training A Cane Corso may be right for you.
