Cane Corso

Cane Corso dogs were originally bred as working dogs in Italy. These dogs are strong, athletic, extremely loyal and alert, making them a great choice for a dog to protect your home. While the Cane Corso is very loyal to family members, they are often suspicious of strangers and can be aggressive when the master is not present. This also holds true for other dogs and animals.
