Welcome to Karen's Cane Corsos
The Cane Corso Italiano is descended from the old Roman Molossian. Formerly scattered all over Italy, in the recent past the breed has only been popular in the Province Apulia and the adjacent regions of Southern Italy. The breed name is derived from the Latin ‘cohors’ which means protector and guardian of the farmyard. Today the breed is used as a guardian, protection, tracking and police dog.
The Cane Corso Italiano was recognized by the American Kennel Club June 30, 2010 and the International Cane Corso Federation in 1993.
