Cane Corso Breed Overview

Want to bring home an adorable Cane Corso puppy for sale? You’ve come to the right place. At Keystone Puppies, our mission is to help Cane Corso puppies find their forever homes. In addition to Cane Corsos, we work with a range of other breeds — including South African Boerboels, English Mastiffs, Neapolitan Mastiffs, and more! All our puppies are bred with the highest standards of ethical integrity — free of common genetic defects that impact less responsible breeders — and are raised in happy homes where they’re treated like part of the family before becoming part of yours!

Despite their imposing size and muscular build, Cane Corsos are gentle, loving dogs that make wonderful companions. Originally bred in Italy, the Cane Corso is a relatively new breed that was developed in the 1980s. However, the breed is descended from ancient Roman Molosser dogs and is thought to be closely related to the Neapolitan Mastiff. Like its ancestors, the Cane Corso is a powerful dog that was originally bred for working purposes. However, over the years the Corsos have become increasingly popular as family pets, thanks to their loyal and affectionate nature. Today, the Cane Corso is still relatively rare, but it is slowly gaining popularity around the world.

They are powerful and athletic, with a short, dense coat that can be black, brindle, fawn, or red. Cane Corsos are loyal and protective, making them great guard dogs. They are also intelligent and trainable, although they can be stubborn if not properly exercised. Despite their large size, Corsos are relatively calm dogs that make good family pets. With proper training and socialization, they can get along well with children and other animals. If you are looking for a big, bold dog with an outgoing personality, the Cane Corso may be the right breed for you.

Cane Corso Puppies Temperament

The Cane Corso is a large and powerful breed of dog, but don’t let that intimidate you – they are actually gentle giants. The breed has a strong work ethic and is highly intelligent. But they are also very loving and loyal, making them excellent pets for families. They bond closely with their human families and are quick to alert their owners to any potential threats. Corsos are natural protectors, so they will bark to warn you of strangers, but they are not aggressive by nature. With proper training and socialization, the Cane Corso can be a great addition to any home.

Additionally, Cane Corsos are active dogs that need plenty of exercise. They love to run and play, and they make great hiking or running partners. They also enjoy playing fetch and other games. Without enough exercise, Cane Corsos can become bored and destructive.

If you’re looking for a big dog with a big heart, the Cane Corso is the perfect breed for you.

Cane Corso Puppy Health Considerations

Though generally very happy and long-lived — with an average lifespan of around 10-12 years — our Cane Corsos for sale are not without their unique health concerns. Like every breed of dog, there are a few conditions you should be aware of before you consider purchasing one of our Cane Corso puppies for sale. Understanding the risks allows you to know the signs and prevent small health concerns from turning into big ones. Cane Corso puppies are at a somewhat elevated risk for developing the following conditions:

  •    Elbow Dysplasia
  •    Orthopedic Problems – Panosteitis, Osteochondritis, Luxating Patella, Cruciate Ligament Rupture, And Wobbler’s Syndrome
  •    Heart Disease
  •    Cancer
  •    Eye Disease
  •    Hypothyroidism
  •    Skin Disease

Like all relatives of the Mastiff, these deep-chested pups are susceptible to Bloat, a sudden and life-threatening condition that causes the stomach to twist and fill with gas.

While these health problems can be serious, they are all relatively common in large breeds of dogs and can often be managed with proper care and nutrition. With some basic knowledge of the breed’s health concerns, you can be sure to give your Corso the best possible chance at a long and healthy life. Finding a Cane Corso puppy for sale from a reputable breeder can also dramatically — although, not eliminate — the risk of your dog developing some of these conditions. At Keystone Puppies, we work exclusively with experienced breeders who are committed to producing healthy & happy pups.

Cane Corso Puppies Coat & Care

The short coat of the Cane Corso breed is a bit deceiving since it also includes an undercoat. This unique coat keeps them warm in the winter and cool in the summer.

Cane Corsos have a short, stiff coat that comes in a variety of colors, including black, brindle, grey, fawn, and red. The coat is easy to care for – regular brushing will help to remove dead hair and keep the coat looking neat. Corsos also need to be bathed on a regular basis, using a mild shampoo to avoid drying out their skin. In addition, the tips of their ears should be checked regularly for signs of irritation or infection. By taking good care of their coat, owners can help their Cane Corsos stay healthy and comfortable.
