Cane Corso means “guardian dog” when translated from Italian. As Cane Corsos are Italian dogs, the word “Cane” is Italian for dog, while the word “Corso” refers to the word cohors, meaning “guardian.”

Cane Corsos stop growing around 1-2 years old. Typically, a Cane Corso will be fully grown by a year old, but some take longer to reach their full growth. By three years old, they’ll be as big as they’ll get. Males can weigh up to 110 lbs (46 kg) while females can weigh up to 100 lbs (42 kg). Every dog is different, but a Cane Corsos will reach their full size in no time with the right food and exercise

Cane Corsos do drool. However, they don’t drool as much as many Mastiff breeds. Drooling is common in Cane Corsos due to their larger upper lip, and most of the time, they’ll drool more as a response to stimulus, such as food.

Cane Corsos can handle cold weather, especially if they have adapted to it. However, cold weather can also make them uncomfortable, especially if they’re outside for long periods. Their short fur coats make them more adept at handling hot weather than cold weather.

Cane Corsos can live with all animals and get along well with them. Cane Corsos are incredibly loyal and intelligent, so they’ll follow the lead of the owners. As long as you train the Cane Corso, they’ll recognize other pets as part of the family.

Cane Corsos do tend to bond more with one person. While they love their family and are fiercely protective, they’ll typically pick one person to bond with the most and become the most protective over

Cane Corsos’ eyes don’t stay blue into adulthood. As puppies, Cane Corsos will typically have blue eyes until around 12 to 16 weeks old. The American Kennel Club finds Cane Corso adults with blue eyes a means for disqualification, as they don’t meet the breed standard.
