History

Bulldogs were created in the 13th century during King John’s reign in England. They were created for the “sport” of bullbaiting where a staked bull would fight a pack of dogs for spectator amusement. These ancient Bulldogs were a ferocious dog with huge jaws that appeared impervious to pain.

Finally, in 1835, the sport was banned and soon the Bulldog was crossed with other breeds to create the Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier and other bull-type terrier breeds for underground fighting. Bulldogs faced extinction, but admirers of the breed transformed them from fighter to companion. By 1886, the new Bulldog was recognized by the American Kennel Club.

The Bulldog is the national symbol of England, sharing similarities with the jowly, tenacious Prime Minister Winston Churchill.

History

The Cane Corso is a working dog, belonging to the subcategory of working breeds called mollosers. This type of dog was bred by an ancient Greek tribe who needed the giant, big-boned guard dogs.

At the height of the Roman Empire, the breed was brought back to Italy from the Greek Islands and bred to native Italian breeds. These offspring were likely a cross between the modern Corso and the Neapolitan Mastiff. The ancestors were fearless dogs who would charge enemy lines with buckets of flaming oil strapped to their backs.

During the 5th century, Italians and their dogs found themselves out of work. The breed was adapted to civilian jobs like wild boar hunting, farming, livestock droving and guarding. In fact, they became a staple on farms and in pastures along the Italian countryside. Constant economic and political upheavals, along with mechanized farming, reduced the Corsi to near extinction.

In the 1970s, a band of farmers came together to revive the breed, and The Society of Amorati Cane Corso was formed in 1983. The first Cane Corso came to America in 1988. The breed wasn’t recognized by the American Kennel Club until 2010.

Facts

  • The Cane Corso has been featured in many paintings, including those by Bartolomeo Pinelli.
  • The breed’s coat is short, coarse, thick like a cow’s and waterproof.
  • The Cane Corso comes from Italy.
  • “Cane” is Italian for dog and “Corso” is from the Latin word “Cohors” meaning protector.
  • Cane Corso is pronounced “cah-ney cor-soh.”
  • The plural of Cane Corso is Cani Corsi.
