HISTORY OF
CANE CORSO

The Cane Corso is a descendant of mastiff-type dogs called ‘Canis Pugnax.’ These canines were used by the Romans in combat. The Cane Corso is a bit lighter in build compared to its giant breed predecessors but still maintains a striking look. The breed is closely related to the Neapolitan Mastiff, which is its larger counterpart. The Cane Corso was used as a dog of conquest and earned its stripes as “pireferi.” This title means a fearless dog that attacks the enemy lines with buckets of flaming oil strapped to its back. The original Cane Corso was believed to be larger than its modern-day version, which has a slimmer body. After the disintegration of the Western Empire in the fifth century, the breed lost its usefulness in battle. It was then used as a catch dog for various civilian jobs in Italy such as herding, hunting, guarding, and other rural activities. In fact, its name “Cane de Corso” refers to its utilisation. The Cane Corso breed helped farmers in herding livestock; it was unfortunately also used as a fighting dog in arenas. During the mid-20th century, the Cane Corso was left jobless and on the brink of extinction. It was caused by several factors including modernised farming, economic and political upheavals, and World Wars. Only a few survived in the remote areas of southern Italy in the 1970s. Fortunately, two breed fanciers named Dr Pablo Breber and Giovanni Bonnetti initiated efforts to save the breed. In 1974, Breber obtained dogs needed to start the breeding program. However, although breed rescue groups and enthusiasts put in the effort to recover it, the breed’s numbers are still low to this day. The Cane Corso gained more attention from dog clubs and dog enthusiasts after it was featured in a magazine article. In 1983, the Society Amorati Cane Corso (Society of Cane Corso Lovers) was established. Ten years later, the breed was exhibited in European dog shows. The Cane Corso dog was recognised by the Italian Kennel Club in 1994 and the American Kennel Club in 2004.
