Cane Corso's Very Happy

The most loyal dogs I've had. Always stick by my side, never wander. Make me feel safe when I'm home alone or walking in the woods(same with my Rottweiler)Love their personalities.

I'd say the bad would be the slobber, and some peoples perception of them..BSL. Not a dog for someone that wants a friendly outgoing breed with non family. Dont live long enough like many large breeds.

Rottweilers

Pros:
goofy,
sweet,
loyal,
guarding instinct,
great family pet that can adapt to living in the country or in a city (even in an apartment environment),
they don't bark a lot,
laid back / calm breed,
easy to train in that they pick up on things quickly,
easy to house train,
good for competing in dog sports as they always need a job to do to keep them physically and mentally stimulated and out of trouble.


Cons:
shed a lot no matter what good diet they are on ,
guarding instinct,
on the BSL radar,
can be extremely stubborn so early training is highly recommended,
majority are same sex dog aggressive if there is another dog of the same sex in the household, some are just same sex dog aggressive to those that don't even live in the household,
are a breed that's prone to hip, elbow, heart and eye problems,
even if you have a well trained Rottie, people tend to run in the opposite direction.

I'm sure there is more but this is all I can think of at the moment.

I love my dogs dearly...I have 2 yorkies and a beagle mix..


I have to admit that I just adore Beagles

Mine is easy going, lovable, cuddly and dumb as a box of rocks. Faithful to the end.

Bad thing about him, he's a hound. Nose to the ground and becomes deaf to my voice. Anything stinky, he rolls in it. Anything stinky, he eats it.

Anything on the floor, he eats it. Anyone comes to the door, he howls. Doorbell rings on tv. , he howls and barks.

Mom is sad, he's there in a heartbeat...

I have 3 right now ,one is for sale he was returned by one of the people who got him . Poor thing will be ready for a new home soon their other dog was not nice to him so he had some hair missing off of his head when he was returned .
I have a Black and Tan Female and a Chocolate and Rust Male . The Male Puppy that was returned is Chocolate and Rust.
Even being abused by the other dog hasn't affected his attitude he is still out going and very sweet . Will make some one a very good companion.
Thank Goodness I had a return policy the couple who had him still calls and checks on him ,they just need to wait until their older dog passes on before getting another new dog.

LOL I am Terrible with Pictures use my Blackberry but will take pictures of them tonight .

I stay off of the ads now I would see dogs and just have to have that breed . That is how I have ended up with 16 dogs .
I will always have a Min-Pin just love them , and the Chihuahuas.

Damn I wish I lived closer....I would snatch one up in a second. I want another one so bad. I miss mine. He was the most unique personality of any dog I have ever owned...a stubburn little shit but full of so much love. Sad

Who's repetitious and at the moment as usual filling time waiting for PC crap to finish before I can go to bed...that would be me. :| Like this breed a lot, contemplated getting into them but they are so expensive I can't see a market for my adventure without spending an additional fortune showing and waiting to make a dime. Learned this from breeding horses so in the meanwhile I will enjoy the one I have.

Well as much as I like Labs I think my big dog days are over...unless my brother decides otherwise. He bought my Lab, the Border Collie, gave me Cailleach and her brother (which I sold, training 2 puppies I did not enjoy), added the obnoxious black spitz he bought my mother, a Keeshound and then there's my Uncle who contributed our first Sheltie. I think Julio is the first dog I actually got to choose other than ages ago when I had my toy Poodle and my female Sheltie. Smile Smile Smile
