The Cane Corso is a muscular dog that is native to Sicily. This robust dog has great strength and working ability. Originally used to hunt large game and as a cattle-catching dog, the breed is known for its suitability for farm and family environments. The Cane Corso is highly trainable and must be able to get along with other dogs. Males are 25 to 28 inches at the shoulder and typically weigh 92 to 110 pounds. Females are slightly smaller. The coat is dense and should be harsh to the touch. Cane Corsos develop a dense undercoat when kept in cold weather. This breed is probably the only coursing mastiff left in the world, and is still used as a hunting dog, a guard dog and a cattle dog. A Corso should be submissive to its owner and gentle with children, but is not for the first time dog owner. This breed needs exercise, but will enjoy quiet times as well. He is easy to house-train and does not drool like many mastiff breeds. The skin should not be loose, and should not form wrinkles. The hair is short but not smooth, very thick and has a light undecoat.
Colours are black, light fawn with a black mask, slate, lead grey staf red and brindle. White is permitted on the chest, chin and front of toes
