Wrong Info for the Cane Corso
« on: June 01, 2005, 12:13:15 am »
Hello I checked out my breed on the new feature here and I just wanted to say that there is wrong info posted about the color and orgin. Size is off as well according to the breed standard. I just thought you might want to get that corrected.

Also feel free to use this image for the cane corso if you wish.
Regards & God Bless,

OOPS FORGOT TO ADD THIS INFO.  :o ;D


ORGIN-
BRIEF HISTORICAL SUMMARY - Its direct ancestor is the "Canis Pugnax" (the old Roman Molossian) of which he is the light version employed in the hunting of large wild animals and also as an "auxiliary warrior" in battles. For years he has been a precious companion of the Italic populations. Employed as property, cattle and personal guard dog and used for hunting purposes too. In the past this breed was common all over Italy as an ample iconography and historiography testify. In the recent past he has found a excellent preservation area in Southern Italy, especially in Puglia, Lucania and Sannio. His name derives from the Latin "Cohors" which means "Guardian", "Protector".

Colour - Black, plumb-grey, slate, light grey, light fawn, deer fawn, dark fawn and tubby (very well marked stripes on different shades of fawn and grey).

Thanks tina and to be honest in short the name would be Corso not cane, cane means dog lol. Many folks call them canes and the europeans looks at them like um? what kind of dog? lol. I was guilty of the  same thing when i first started with this breed back long ago when i was 13.

Anyhow no problem Jabear, please feel free to contact me anytime for info on bully and molosser breeds I know a bit about most and have many friends that are experts in all the rare molosser breeds of the world.

Now i might check the other links lol when i find time to make sure they are correct.

And the 1st photo below isnt my dog but a friend of mine from www.AmoreCaneC orso.com . He is handsome as well, his name is Bugatt he is black modeling one of our collars from www.MolosserMa rt.com his momma purchased for him.

The second photo is of Bronx a slate grey cane corso..

The third is of Ranza a grey brindle cane corso.

Mosselar,
Feel free to check things but note that they are the standard and not every dog fits what is quoted. The idea behind the BigPawPedia is to change it as needed according to our specific dogs. Eventually, the Pedia will be an ever changing, revolving pit of information.
Hugs,

No prob and yes im aware of standards. I devoted my life to these breeds, many folks may not know it here but just about every large breed featured here is a Molosser. Newf, st. Bernards, Great Danes, all the mastiffs, and the list goes on and on.  ;D

Regards and God Bless

Geeze where is my head I forgot also to say that Newf of yours sure is a handsome boy. I see his paw print and his photos in there. I sure would love for you to enter him into the photo calendar contest at www.MolosserMa rt.com/contests.html you can win a collar or lead for him if he makes the calendar.
