Cane Corsos are guard, defense, police and tracking dogs that are directly descended from the same stock as the Roman war dog Canis Pugnax. Once spread throughout Italy, nowadays they are only found in the remote southern Apulia region. The name comes from the Latin word cohors, which means “protector, guardian of farms and they are used to guard property, family and livestock. In the past, they were used to watch cattle and hunt big game.The body is a little longer than it is high, while the head is about a third the size of the height at the withers.

It’s certainly an Italian paradox. A mastiff from the south with a history lost in time, which was recognized only very recently but has turned into something of a revelation. The birthrate has risen exponentially over the past six decades.
