“This interesting research reveals huge interest in the Cane Corso breed. This striking breed has been rising in popularity across the US ever since it was first recognized as a breed by the American Kennel Club in 2010. Loyal and loving, Cane Corsos can make excellent pets. However, they are large, intelligent, and very active dogs who need an experienced owner with the time to dedicate to training and exercise. These powerful dogs can weigh more than 100 pounds and can be highly assertive, so they are recommended for households with older children only if in a family setting,” she said.
