Cane Corso A Brief Introduction to this Wonderful Canine Breed
Strong, medium to large in size, with highly developed musculature and a head of significant size, while remaining in proportion to the features of the body, the cane corso is a breed with ancient Italian roots.
Cane corso is a direct descendant of the so-called Roman 'canis pugnax', which was certainly one of the factors behind the might of ancient Rome.
As far as the etymological origin of the name is concerned, there is more than one school of thought: a word of Latin derivation? Greek? Other scholars claim that the name 'Corso' derives from an ancient Celtic-Provençal meaning of 'strong'.
There is much to be said, a lot to be written about this breed of dog that we are so fond of.
