good treats, training, socializing and quality time spent with the dog.

Does anyone have any experience with Cane Corsos? Do they have the same or similar needs as the GSD? Any info you can provide on the breed is appreciated. Thanks!!

Broncs If you would like pm me I can put you I touch with a reputable breeder from the NW. That is the brother of a very good friend of mine. He is a nice guy and will answer any questions you might still have.

NormanF Mastiffs are working dogs and like GSDs, they're happiest when they have something to do.

They're the not the dog content to sit with its owner and watch the world go by. They're a good fit for someone with an active lifestyle.

People should do their homework before they acquire one.

pets4life they are slow more lazy than a gsd I think the one poster described them perfect, I have never seen one that can do real personal protection. I am sure they are out there but the ones that can are very hard to handle.

Chip18 It seems that when Mastiffs come up, the males seem to be a "problem" are male Mastiffs more of an "issue" then females??

David Winners Just wondering. I'm glad you are happy with your dogs.

Better yet, say your dog is a CC or Dogo cross and still sell mutt puppies for a couple hundred. If there is a market, you'll find a dog.
Well that's what ABD are bred for!

But since I'm pro Brachycephalic! My third dog is going to be ABD/Boxer cross so if they are a dime a dozen in Texas, maybe that's where I'll look!

I have 2 mals from loganhaus, so a working breeder, and the one that is from his breeding (other is an import) is such a nice dog, he makes an awesome pet. I really just love him to death. He is NOT high energy or hyper, he loves to just go out in the yard and play fetch and he's perfectly fine to entertain himself if I can't and he will sleep a lot when I'm sick. The only thing that i have to keep a handle on is when he gets mad, which is not that often, he gets REALLY MAD. He is super smart, too much sometimes. My neighbors watched him at their house for a week when I went to the beach, and they loved him. The worst thing he does is he has very high food drive, and will eat any edible food item, so will get into trash, etc.

We see 2 cane corsos at my clinic, same owner from same breeder. Both were great as young dogs and puppies, really sweet. The male hit 2 years and started going after their kids, could not even be touched even remotely by us at the clinic anymore at that point and was returned to the breeder. He actually nailed one of our best techs in the face. They still have the female which is about 1.5 years now and last she was in, she had that look like she could think about biting but was still ok.
