    We decided to spruce things up and fix some things under the hood. If you notice any issues, feel free to contact us as we're sure there are a few things here or there that we might have missed in our upgrade.

    Cane Corso - cropped ear not standing at 8 months

    Shropshire. Is that in the UK? If so, it's my understanding that ear cropping is illegal in the UK unless it's medically necessary.

    Cane Corso - cropped ear not standing at 8 months

    Where are you located and have you asked your breeder?

    Hahaha, poor Lomu.

    Trying to determine if I should adopt/save aggressive cane corso.

    Nobody can answer this. If someone says they can then they're not telling the truth. Behavioral issues are complex and there are no guarantees. I do hope you give us an update, whatever you decide to do.

    Behavioral science would disagree with you. While socialization and other early factors can absolutely influence behavior, genetics plays a role as well. There have been many recent unbiased studies done on this. I wish you the best of luck with whatever you decide to do.

    Post ear crop (possible infection)

    Looks like he's due to have his sutures removed today. I hope all is well.

    Oh my gosh, she's just gorgeous! I love seeing pictures of her. I also start with a dremel from the day I bring them home. I do nails once a week whether they need them done or not. Nail boards are also nice.

    May I also ask what trainer you plan to use? Does this person have a website?

    Yes. What Michele said. Management would be critical. The thing about management is that it always fails. At least one time. We're human and we make mistakes. If you're lucky it's just a wake-up call to be more careful. If you're not then something tragic can happen to a person or your animals...

    Honestly? I'd pass. You have animals at home that deserve to feel safe. Aggression often can't be predicted and you have zero history with this animal, so no basis of trust to start working with. To give him what he would need to *maybe* help him you'd have to put 100% of your time and effort...

    English Mastiff skin issue

    Can you take a picture? A closer one and one that shows the overall condition of his coat?

    Is my 9 month old underweight/bad vet advice?

    That sounds good. It's on par with adult and all breed formulas with the correct ratios.
