Cane Corso

The Cane Corso.(pronounced /ˈkɑːneɪ ˈkɔrsoʊ/ KAH-neh-KOR-soh in English) is a large Italian molosser. It is well muscled and looks more athletic than most other mastiffs, tending less toward sheer bulk like the Neapolitan Mastiff and more towards definition like the original Old English Bulldog.

The official FCI standard calls for dogs to stand from 62 to 69 cm (23.6-26.7 inches) at the withers, with females in the lower range and males in the higher. Weight should be in keeping with the size and stature of these dogs, ranging from 40 to 72 kg (88-160 lbs). The overall impression should be of power balanced with athleticism. A Corso should be moderately tight skinned, however some dewlap on the neck is normal, and the bottom of the jawline should be defined by the hanging lip. The Corso head is one of its primary features. Its muzzle should be as wide as it is long, and should be 33% of the length of the entire skull (a ratio of 2:1). This head size and type also means that a Corso has superior bite strength. Its ears are naturally dropped forward, but where legal, many breeders crop them so that the remaining stubs are equilateral triangles, standing upright. Most Corsos have docked tails as well. The standard calls for docking at the 4th vertebra, although often they are docked shorter, this is considered an eliminating fault under the Italian FCI 343 standard.

Corsos appear in two basic coat colours: black and fawn. This is further modified by genetic pigment dilution to create blue (from black) and formentino (from fawn) colours. Brindling of varying intensity is common on both basic coat colours as well, creating tigrato (full brindle), black brindle, and blue brindle. Fawn also has a number of different expressions, ranging from the pale of a formentino to 'red' to the more common beige colour, with the back coat hairs tipped with black. In blue dogs, the nose can appear grey, but should be darker than the coat. In all other dogs, the nose should be black. White markings on the chest, toes and on the chin and nose are seen as well, with smaller white patches being preferable.

Temperament

Cane Corso are considered to have an even, stable and calm temperament. They are easy to train and form a close attachment with their primary owner. They socialize easily with humans; less so with other dogs, especially if large and of the same sex. Corsos tend to be a quiet breed and like nothing better than staying next to their owner all the time.

A true Corso should be indifferent when approached and should only react when a real threat is present. Corsos are historically working dogs that need exercise and are at their best when they have a job to do.

History

The Cane Corso is a catch dog used with cattle and swine, and also in wild boar hunts. It is also used by night watchmen, keepers, and, in the past, by carters.

In the more distant past this breed was common all over Italy as an ample iconography and historiography testify. In the recent past its distribution was limited to some districts of Southern Italy, especially in Puglia, Molise, Calabria.

Its name derives from "cane da corso" which is an old term for those catch dogs used in rural activities (for cattle and swine; boar hunting) as distinct from "cane da camera" which indicates the catch dog kept as a bodyguard. The breed was recovered from near extinction through the efforts of enthusiasts in the 1970s, the Corso is now popular globally, as can be seen by recent celebrity ownership of Cane Corsos.

The Corso favours strength combined with agility. The Cane Corso has a very high need for training, exercise and early socialization.

Since coming to the United States in 1987 the breed has gained popularity. It was recognized by the United Kennel Club on July 15, 2008 under the name Cane Corso Italiano, and subsequently by the American Kennel Club in 2010 under the name Cane Corso.
