My love affair with the Cane Corso started when my husband was researching for a guard dog after our Rottweiler passed away at an early age. Our Rottweiler, Kayla had an abnormal heart condition due to bad breeding practices. We did not do our research before we purchased her but we loved her anyway. The veterinarian told us to keep her as an inside dog and make her as comfortable as possible. She lived to be about 3 years old. When she passed away we were very sad. She was great with kids and a fearless protector. Kayla is greatly missed. My husband heard about the Cane Corso from his friend. He was impressed with the breed's characteristics. I was a little apprehensive about having such a big dog in the house. But when I found out the Corso was a light shedder, a family guardian and had a stable temperament with proper socialization, I was sold. The Cane Corso is a dominant breed and not for the first time dog owner. We have dealt with dominate breeds in the past and we were up for the challenge. We purchased our first Cane Corso and we fell in love! Benelli was everything we wanted him to be. He has a strong drive but he is good with his family and children that we work with. He is a fierce protector and we feel safe with him on our property.
Rest In Peace
