Approximately, four and half years ago we started out with our first Show Cane Corso Taahmi and due to some unfortunate circumstances she passed away, but before she went she had us hooked.
We decided we were going to get out of the Show goat raising business and get back into raising dogs. I raised Miniature Schnauzers and the Australian Labradoodles for almost 15 years.
When I moved to Oregon in 2006, I decided to change gears and got into raising the South African Boer Goat.
Now once again we have switched gears. The interesting thing is that the standard (structure) of what we look for in a goat is very similar to what we look for in the Cane Corso.
Our Corso's have almost 8 acres to run on. We don't kennel them. They live in the house, as well as have the run of the yard. They are treated as our family members. We have pets as well as breeding and show animals. They are health tested and we only breed top quality dogs. We strive to keep up the impeccability, quality and standard of the Cane Corso Breed.
Cane Corso's are intelligent, playful, dominant, great guardians, family protectors, good with kids, but due to their size can be a bit over bearing with small children, they need to be socialized ALOT., Cane Corso's are affectionate and very loving too. They can act like toddlers if not trained or socialized too.

A mastiff type breed, the Cane Corso is relatively rare, better known in his native Italy. Bred to be a hunter and protector, he's large, muscular and powerful. Your Cane Corso puppy is smart and easily trained and will form close bonds with the family. As a natural athlete, he needs lots of exercise. Grooming is easy; his thick coat rarely sheds and is completely waterproof.

Breed History & Job Description: The Cane Corso (KAH-neh-KOR-soh) belongs to a subcategory of working breeds called Mollosus dogs (named for the Molossi, an ancient Greek tribe thought to have bred giant, big-boned guardian dogs). Invading Roman legions brought mollosians back to Italy, bred them to native Italian breeds, and created the Corso and it’s larger relative, the Neapolitan Mastiff. The original Corsi were used as warriors, boar hunters, farm dogs, and most famously, guardians. In fact, the breed name roughly translates from the Latin as “bodyguard dog.”
CANE CORSO are NOT for everyone!
DON’T CONSIDER BUYING THIS DOG IF;
1) You’re looking for a cool dog
2) Think these are laid back couch potatoes
3) You don’t have a strong leadership personality
4) You can’t take responsibility for a possibly aggressive dog
5) If you like going to dog parks
6) You live in a small apartment and no time for exercising your dog
7) If you’ve never owned a “DOMINANT/GUARDIAN” breed
8 ) Because your friend has one
9) You think owning Pitbulls are similar (NO NO NO)
10) If you think Corso don’t need training
11) You think not investing a lot of time into socialization of your pup
12) You think this breed is like your Labradoodle
13) You think it’s ok if your kids jump on them and play with the dog when you’re not watching
14) If you like a lot of social parties at your home with your dog as a status symbol 🙄
15) If you think these dogs are like human babies
And I could go on!
Remember...these dogs are animals with strong personalities and if you are not their LEADER....they WILL be yours! (FACT)
Our babies are adopted quickly, so reach out to reserve your furever friend or to ask any questions.
