We are happy today interview with the breeder sara Vie from Cane corso Guardiano da Passione
I’m Sara Vié. My Kennel name is “Guardiano da Passione”. I met the Cane Corso for the first time 1996 at a German Dogshow
and was very impressed by their attitude and look.
At this time I owned a Dobermann, but I was always in love for molossid breeds.
So this was the time I thought about to own a Cane Corso myself one day, but until than it took few more years.
In 2005 i bought my first Cane Corso, my first litter was born in 2009.
– WHY THE BREED CANE CORSO IS DIFFERENT TO THE OTHERS BREEDS
The Cane Corso is unique dog to me. A strong athletic breed with this special strong expression and well balanced in every aspect.
Even he is very strong and muscular dog, he is never lazy or lethargic, instead full of energy.
For me not to compare to any other breed.
– FOR YOU THE BREED , IS GOOD OF SALUT, WE DO BY THE CORRECT WAY ?
You see more and more breeders selecting the wrong type and expression.
Many dogs resemble more to the Bullmastiff or Boxer, than to a Cane Corso.
If you are new in the breed, you maybe go to a dogshow and see dogs with excessive undershot bite and round heads winning against the competition.
This gives you the impression, that this must be the right type for our breed.
This is a big tragedy in my opinion. This isn´t the Cane Corso, how he should be. Lately I see also more and more dogs with bad construction, round toplines and missing angulations.
What a sad development! As a new breeder you must probably find your way, but this way must always go back to the true Cane Corso.
The Cane Corso which i wish for is a complete dog, with typical head, balanced body and strong mind!
– IS CANE CORSO A HOMOGENEOUS BREED ? IF NOT HOW WE CAN RESOLT ?
We are far from a homogen breed. If you see 10 Cane Corsi in the same place, you see often 6-7 different breeds.
Influences from other breeds and bad selection of many breeders made this breed very inhomogen.
We should start to respect the standard and select the correct dogs for breeding, which fit into the standard.
Of course every dog has his faults, none is perfect, but they should be a Cane Corso in first place.
– WHAT IS DIFFERENCES , IN THE CANE CORSO IN THE PASS YEARS AND THE ACTUAL CANE CORSO ?
I can just speak for the past 13 years. For sure other breeders have a longer view for this.
But in the last years i see more and more boxertype dogs with excessive undershot bite and the true Cane Corso seems to be a dying breed to me.
I just hope, that the dedicated breeders don´t give up their work and the Breed Cane Corso will survive this sad trend.
Many thanks for all . Miss Sara vie
