Is the Cane Corso / American Mastiff Mix right for you?

Species group:

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The pairing between a Cane Corso and an American Mastiff isn't all that common, but you may occasionally encounter this mix in a rescue. Approach with caution. This powerful and assertive cross with an innate need to protect its own humans can represent a danger to others if not properly trained and socialized. This is not a dog for people who don't know what they are doing. If you need a powerful watchdog, you should get the proper training, both for yourself and for your dog, to make sure you end up with a well-socialized animal.

Before you even consider owning this dog, check with your insurance agent and check your local laws. It may not be legal for you to own a Cane Corso mix in your neighborhood or, even if it's legal, your insurer may consider having this animal grounds for cancelling your insurance.

Appearance / health:
The Cane Corso / American Mastiff Mix is a large (sometimes huge) and potentially intimidating animal.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, the reality is that not all of these large, muscular mixes are being bred by responsible people. While it will usually be loyal and protective of family, the Cane Corso / American Mastiff Mix needs to be well-socialized to be a good neighbor to those outside the family. A badly trained, badly controlled dog could be a disaster waiting to happen.
