My Wish List

As most of you know I don't have any pets. Sad isn't it. I was raised surrounded and I mean surrounded by animals. Horses, dogs, cats, chickens, goats. You name it, we had it. My husband on the other hand only had a cat. Hence, he's not a big animal person. We have 2 children and I think they, we, would benefit from having a dog. Therein lies my battle to win a dog. I have a couple on my wish list but this big guy is the main one.

The breed is known by a couple different names. Cane Corso (pronounced like the name Connie), Italian Mastiff, Italian Molosso and Cane Corso Italiano. Everything I've read about this breed amazes me. From their docile nature to their role as guardian of the family.

This is the dog for me.

Many people in the states crop their ears, giving them an intimidating look. I much prefer their natural state, their Italian state.

Wish me luck!

  1. Oh, Barb/Elle--He's just gorgeous. Italian, too. As you know I am partial to Italians. *G* I am wishing you mega luck in your battle. I think every kid should have a dog. Dogs areamzing companions and playmates. They give unconditional love. Where Larry's concerned, maybe lean on the 'Watchdog' aspect. This awesome canine could protect his wife and children!

  2. Hi Barb,

    That is one beautiful dog. By all means, Good Luck!


  3. I love mastiffs -- bull mastiffs, english mastiffs, neopolitan mastiffs. They can grow verrry large and the drool a lot but they're gorgeous dogs with great temperaments.
