Cane Corso

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 descended from the Roman canis Pugnaces, the breed’s name derives from the Latin “”Cohors”” which means “”Guardian”” and “”Protector.””
The breed’s coat is short but not smooth (like the coat of a cow), very coarse and thick in order to be perfectly waterproof. It can be black, gray, fawn or red, with brindle variations and a black or gray mask also acceptable.
