    Hey there. Picked up this lil guy 2 weeks ago. He was 9 weeks at 1lbs.
    Hes about 11 weeks at 17lbs now.
    People are starting to make me second guess myself that its a blue nose pitbull..
    What u guys think
    He is small

    Excellent and very handsome Cane Corso. If there is Pit in him as a mix, I cannot tell. Time will tell, specifically height, I would think. Our Mastiffs have blocky heads so, it can be difficult to say, but he looks Primo Cane. More pictures would help.

    And if he isn't what you bargained for....well, I think you got the better part of the deal!

    A cc is exactly what i wanted. Just that he's tiny!
    Our last cc blu passed at 7 months 100+lbs. with a bad heart.

    Looks like a CC to me too. No chance of determining this with 100% accuracy, but I personally don‘t see a blue nose pitbull.

    looks ver CC-ish to me. Do you know his parents? Did you look at growing chart to see if his weight according to average numbers?

    Cane Corso is his look. why so worried about the weight? as long as he is healthy? he may have a growth spurt, he is only 11 weeks.

    His growth rate will answer your question for you. Keep an eye on how much he wants to eat. Whatever he is he’s beautiful, just enjoy him. Seems to have a Corso face.

    I’m in no way claiming I’m an expert, I’m quite the opposite. When mine was that age I was told to feed him 3 times a day and to make sure the protein count was like 22%. Your dog will let you know if he’s hungry feed him. Look at the dog food bag and let the chart guide you. He will achieve his predetermined size and weight sooner or later. He looks really nice, can’t wait to see future pictures. Good luck

    Make sure you feed a food with the proper calcium to phosphorus ratio. There are posts on the forum giving guidelines. Don't worry about what the scale or standards say. Your pup will grow to be the size he should be and you need to make sure he does that in a healthy way. Bigger isn't better. Far too many people I know think fat is the same as big. It's not. Use the portion size on the bag of food as a guide. Start with the recommended amount and see how he does with it. Most all pups seem starving all the time. Look at his body condition. It's okay to feel his ribs. If he's too ribby, then up the food a bit. If he's too tubby then cut it back. If you aren't sure, post a picture taken from overhead of him standing and one of him from the side, standing and post it. Gorgeous pup, btw. He looks like a Corso to me. FWIW, my English Mastiff was a eight pounds at eight weeks. That's tiny. She's a proper, slim 130 at almost 8 years old. Try not to worry. Here's a link to a chart for puppy body condition.

    You will growth spurts that are pretty amazing. I’d come home from work and ask my wife, did the dog grow that much today. Great looking pup.

    I would certainly say that is a Corso... look at those paws... too big for a Pit. You have an absolute Beautiful Corso in my opinion. You can always do a DNA test if you are really curious...
