Cane Corso Character

The Cane Corso is a very loyal dog always willing to please and considerably quiet around the house for such a large breed of dog. They are incredibly intelligent and like to be active. This breed should be trained early as socialization is imperative and it should be remembered that the Cane Corso was initially bred for fighting, they will not ‘look’ for a fight but if they are challenged they will not back down easily.
