There are so many dog breeds around the world that we may not always be aware of, aside from the very popular ones. Picking the perfect dog whose breed meets both you and your household’s needs can be a bit of a tricky thing, but with the right information and knowledge of what a certain dog breed entails, you can pick out the most appropriate for you! One great breed that isn’t too well known is the Cane Corso Mastiff. The Italian canine breed was bred to hunt boar – today it often serves as a guard dog. This breed of dog is incredibly loyal and devoted to its family. This powerful and complex canine has special needs and is probably not the best choice for someone who has never owned a dog before. After all, this dog is quite the large one as well as very intelligent, active and headstrong – it also isn’t a stranger to sitting its heavy body on your feet and lean its whole bodyweight against your legs.
You’ll probably want to look into adopting a Cane Corso if you are looking for a powerful and massive canine whoma kes for an imposing watchdog, is serious and pretty self-assured, even with strangers, and is overall pretty mild-mannered unless provoked. If a dog with a short, easy-to-care-for coat and a dog that is more energetic, athletic and responsive to training is what you are looking for, you’ll most definitely want to adopt a Cane Corso – they just might be the perfect one for you!
However, if you’re looking for a smaller dog who doesn’t take as much space or isn’t heavy and/or has potential aggression toward people or other animals, you might want to forgo a Cane Corso. Also, if you don’t want a rowdy and exuberant canine when it’s young or a dog that tends to be destructive when it’s bored or left alone, you will want to probably look at another breed instead.
