    Has any purchased a CC from Shipley Cane Corso or have any feedback on them? I'm having a hard time finding any reviews on the breeder except for what they have on their website. Any information helps! Thank you!

    To the best of my knowledge they do no health testing and aren't active in the breed. They claim you can't find a dog cheaper than their dogs but there are more reputable breeders that health test with correct dogs that are active in the breed that would be a better choice. Shipley as long as you have the $$ they will sell you a dog.

    Hi I have a cane corso from Shipley’s. The owner was very responsive prior to purchasing the dog but after you get the dog they ignore any of your inquires. I wish I did better when it came to researching them before purchasing

    I am sorry to hear this, it is something that to be honest I am not surprised to hear as it has been said on many of the corso pages on FB.

    I'm currently in the process of purchasing a puppy from Shipley Cane Corso and I was wondering if you had any other specific information about instances wit this breeder I'm not really sure if they are reputable and can not find an other info besides what they provide. I do not see anything on their Facebook page just their own post. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

    You can ask on many of the pages about Shipley and get people that have dealt with them. I haven't looked at them personally as breeders as they don't hold an interest for me but if memory serves (you can always ask them and double check this stuff) they do not health test any of their stock which when you are paying what they are charging for pups should be a given to at least have the basics of hips checked. They do nothing with their dogs outside of breed, which means it is a income business for them as they are not putting any expense out for these animals. Many pet people use the argument "well I don't plan to show so don't care about show or working titles" but they don't understand that the reason behind this also shows their breeder is investing back into their program and putting them out there to show conformation/structure and temperament is right for the breed.

    One of the most recent stories I heard was they were charging $3500/pup and claimed you could not get a quality corso for that which is plain rubbish. You can easily get a correct corso, from health tested parent that is stable and temperament tested parents for less than that usually.

    What makes it easy for them to sell is we are a society of immediate gratification (this isn't aimed at you but is a general observation) and when we want something we want it now and a new puppy is no different so we look for homes that have puppies when we want them rather than find a good breeder that is worried about the future of the breed and waiting until they have a litter that is suitable for us.

    Not sure If it is the same people I am thinking of, but if I'm correct there around Colrain/Cinci Ohio area?

    If It's who I think it is, I would advise avoiding them, as there all about the money.

    If you do get a pup from them make sure to get any worries in writing.

    Any breeder that promotes a child riding on the back of a dog is a big no no for me

    Hi Valerie. We ended up purchasing from Shipley and it worked out well. They were responsive and extremely helpful. I haven't had to contact them after we received our pup as we have had other CC's and are familiar with the breed. Our pup is 5 months old now and her temperament is perfect, we couldn't ask for a better dog (plus, shes absolutely beautiful).
