History of the Cane Corso

The ancestors of Cane Corsos arrived to the territories of Italy with the ancient raiding from the East. That large, molossoid type of dog is assumed to be the ancestor of the Napoletan Mastiff as well as the Corsos. The ancient Romans bred dogs based on their usability. A lighter, quicker, slimmer and more elegant breed appeared aside of the large bodied, very strong, though slow dog. They were used by the Romans for hunting and guarding the livestock.

In 1750, a regional regulation forbid the use of Corsos for tracking fugitives. It's ought to be mentioned as a proof for the ancient-time existence of Cane Corsos that, typologically the Cane Corsos are similar to the disappeared ancient German breed "Bullenbeiser" (i.e.. bullbiter). Their altered version can be found in some popular breeds, only. But the Cane Corsos, thanks to the caring Italian people and, later on to some enthusiastic Corso-fans, is still with us, and Cane Corsos have been loving, loyal partners of their owner, ever since.

The First and Second World War made breeding impossible. The breed, what remained was genetically tortured. In 1973, prof. Giovanni B., Stefano Gandolfi, Giancarlo Malavasi and a few other experts in the field started a risky and long lasting regaining program of the breed, and to establish the standard. After completing the job ENCI accepted the plan for the standard. As of February 20, 1994 the Cane Corso became a full member of the FCI.
