It can be hard to confrimed about the tail docking because my father is hoping to get a American Cocker spaniel - Puppies will born through easter weekend (Next week!) - Cocker spaniel normally have tail docking - so not sure about the tail docking yet in this country!
What about America?? Do they stop tail docking???? Because my family's plan will be moving back to america in 2 years time and we will be taking our dogs - My bernese, our chihuahua and our black labrador with us include this cocker spaniel... - See photo of American cocker spaniel (Soon to be mother for the puppies next weekend) Also it have big paws! hee...... And Maxi our chihuahua, trained in Agility....cut ie!

Whenever I cannot find a breed recognized by the AKC, I visit the rare breed website.  Sure enough, they have info on the Cane Corso:

http://www.rarebreed.com/breeds/cane_corso/cane_history.html

If you've never ventured around that site, it's it's a great place to learn info on dogs you may never heard of.

Nope, no stop to the tail docking of Cockers here.  (I'm in America and have a Cocker.) Their tails are docked shortly after birth.

Good luck with the puppies!  Love to see photos!

The Cane Corso is not recog. by akc main, but they are in the akc-fss division. Personally i did not want them to be recognized for fear of even more bad breeders and owners. Their origin is Italy, they are fci/enci papered, there is a club here in usa that is for the cane corso in america. this breed as im sure most others has tons of political mumbo jumbo around it, americans for the most part breed the workability out of the dog and make them huge huge huge, where the country of orgin calls for a max standard for males at 110 pounds and femals 96 or so pounds. American bred Corso can be found at 160-170 and even sometimes more than that. :-[ It boils down to personal preference i suppose as i prefer smaller more agile type fitting closer to the overall italian standard.(which after all is their country of orgin)

http://www.corsoluv.com is my site and has photos of both fci(italian) type and iccfamerican) type corsi. I love the breed and only try to help in every way possible.  ;D

http://www.canecorsoitaliano.com/ here is also a ton more info from the parent club in italy!

Long story, to make it short and simple he didnt take to kindly to me not paying 101% of my attention all the time to him and he was becoming very depressed/sad, destructive, and only seemed to shred my husbands things, lol. He was not happy either that we had 2 children back to back i suppose as he just became more and more grumpy, me being a first time new mother i was paranoid to say the least and it broke my heart to let him stay in texas when we moved to ohio.  :(

I was not a happy camper, well needless to say on our last progress report of his situation where he is now it was a very depressing one for me, my baby lives out side in mud tied to a tree. We have tons of work ahead of us, lol or should i say i have tons of work ahead of me with getting him situated back with his rightful family again.  I am much less paranoid now than i used to be and not only that we are getting a master trainer to assist us in proper methods for his temperament type.

Bronx looks sweet, but boy is he a hard hard tempered dog. He is very protective and donest seem to like to share me much. A brief history on bronx and I. I got him for my 19th bday present all for me after researching the breed for 6 years i decided it was time. He traveled the USA with me being my companion and protector for about 2 straight years. One day my michael(my husband) and I came back into contact after an off and on friendship and well needless to say we were married and had children rather quickly and Bronx didnt adjust to the change of him not being by my side at all times. He made room for my husband and kids, but he was so annoying i was sad for him. I did what was best for my children at the time, and it tore my heart up to watch him stay behind. Anyway, last report of his updated pics were horrible and made me so furious i wanted to go that day and pick him up. So this month he is coming home, and we will have tons and i do mean tons of rehab to do with him. But my grey boy is worth every second of my time. I miss him deeply.

Elena,
I am so sorry to hear about your beloved Bronx. I am so glad that you are getting him back soon. I am sure that he will require a lot of work to reassimilate to your family...but you seem to have alot of devotion to him which will help. ALso, getting a trainer is a great idea! I'm sure it will help give you the skills you need to make his transition and your familys' a lot better. Best wishes!
Hugs,
Jaime

Just joined recently and would like to introduce you to my boy, Luca an 8 year old Cane Corso.  Blue brindle, somewhat overweight at 160lbs but he was a giant among his litter mates. He is gentle with children, very alert and protective of his family.  He won a group blue ribbon at the rare breed association meet when he was 6 months old.  My wife calls him my shadow.

In Ontario Canada the Corso is recognized by the Rare Breed Club and are always one of the largest groups out showing. I believe they are the decendents of the Mollosians who were the war dogs of the Romans. A very ancient breed and still very popular in Italy. A friend of mine is breeding Mollosians, a noble and beautiful breed.

I have a 6 month old Cane Corso named Hamish and he is lovely. He is really smart, and quite easy to train. Hamish is quite protective, but never aggressive. He's great with children and loves nothing more to be used as a pillow to my 8 year old son. He's pretty good with other dogs, but is particularly drawn to the small breeds. I couldn't have asked for a better dog. He's my dog, but responds really well to my husband and is learning to take more commands from our son.

I've attached a photo of Hamish when he was 6 weeks, and I'll attach one of him taken a 2 months ago as well.
