Cane Corso Italiano

History and Origin

The Cane Corso's ancestors were the mastino dogs which lived in Tibet about a thousand years ago and were used as guards in the ancient monasteries. Some of these dogs were brought to Rome where they would fight lion in the Coliseums and served as "warriors" in Alexander Macedonian's army. They were used as hunting, shepherd dogs, watchdogs and guardians. Those Cane Corso's ancestors are known as Roman Molossian now. The appearance of the Cane Corso has changed little since that time. Now they have a little less weight, are less encumbered, but just as powerful.
During the First and Second World War the Cane Corso population decreased dramatically. But in the 1970s and 80s,a small group of Italian enthusiasts start to re-establish the breed and create a breed standard. The breed was recognised by the ENCI in the 1994 and by the FCI in the 1996.
Today the Cane Corso is used mostly as pets and guardians. Some Cane Corsos still can be seen herd cattle in the Southern Italy.
