    My cane corso puppy growth and breed problem

    Forgive me, but I had a hard time following how old you say the pup is. How old is it in the pics? I'm no expert on the Corso, but I have been researching it for a handful of years now. I won't at this point give my opinion on whether it is a Corso or not because I don't feel qualified or...

    Forum needs updating.

    Yeah. As evidenced by the fact that I'm reading this over 1 month later, you are correct. I'm not trying to be critical or ungrateful, but it has puzzled me why a forum that covers so many breeds has so little activity. Far and away, the Corso area of this forum is the busiest, but still...

    6 month old female cane corso puppies back legs turn inward

    The look of the hind legs does not concern me. There is perhaps a bit of being "cowhocked" but that is not a health issue, and in fact is not a big deal at all. My previous dog, along with his dam were cowhocked and they were very physically capable and never had any problems from it. The breed...

    Hello Mastiff Forum - meet Jack

    Hello to Jack! I'm curious what breed he is. Wonderful no matter what breed, but I'm just curious.

    Hard to decide on which cane corso puppy

    I see one appears to have smaller ears. I would choose that one. That one also seems to be a bit longer in leg, but it might just be the way they are sitting.

    Personally, I have no problem with cropping a Boerboel, though I do fully understand that it is not a breed that has been cropped historically or that is commonly cropped. I did see one person on Insta that had cropped his Boerboel. If I could get a Boerboel that was cropped, it would bump it...

    Timid Mastiff:

    Hi! Just my thoughts: Your dog might just have a natural shyness of noises. This doesn't completely correlate to whether or not they would protect you, except if the bad guy made a loud noise, or one occurred during the time your dog would otherwise be protecting you. Many dogs are spooked by...

    Thanks for the additional pics. I see now that they have some length to them. You might indeed find that you need to do some taping of them at least. I see also that they made the tip come to a point – maybe more on the right ear than the left.? Such a point might wind up being limp and...

    Cool. Another pic would help us better see; but I think the answer is: If you feel there is a need to post, then post. Or, perhaps just tape but no posts. I've seen Corso ears just get taped, no posts. I'll just advise: Resist the temptation to use too much tape. That's a bad tendency so many...

    Boerboel and baby

    I've considered a Boerboel for my family and the breed is still on my list. Without causing controversy, hopefully, I will say I have doubted the breed's safety around my children. Personally, I would for sure want to get one as a young puppy and raise it with my family. I know this is never...

    Hi. From the one picture I see, it looks like quite a short crop. You say it's longer than most Corso crops? Maybe it's the foreshortening in the pic that makes it look so short. What I see in the pic would not need posting in my opinion.

    Central Asian Shepherd Pup Logan

    I don't suppose we could get an update on Logan, could we? I have recently taken an interest in this breed. I completely read this thread, and I understand if the owner didn't feel like, or have time to, keep on providing updates. I just have several key questions about owning a CAS, and I want...
