Generally speaking, Cane Corsi grow to be between 85 and 125 pounds and can grow up to 25 inches at the shoulder. Males tend to be larger than females, and some get even bigger than the breed standard.
The Cane Corso is an Italian Mastiff. Pronounced "kah-nay kor-so," these giant breed dogs are capable of growing at an astounding rate.
Cane Corso puppies weigh around 3 pounds at birth but will grow very quickly. Without proper training beginning at a young age, dogs this large can be extremely difficult to control. Cane Corsi need a firm hand, lots of praise and affection during their training and several levels of obedience training to ensure the dog knows his place. Properly trained, Cane Corsi make wonderful companions and even better watchdogs.
