I am going to explain the advantages and disadvantages of the Cane Corso or Italian Mastiff.
The Cane Corso or Italian Mastiff is a breed of big dogs, so people who want a small dog like the chihuahua or the poodle, this breed of Italian Corso will not fit this person.
Regarding the weight, the Cane Corso in its adult age can reach 55 or 56 kilos. It has a low average energy for this reason it does not need to exercise every day and is calm at home compared to other breeds with higher energies such as the German Shepherd that if it does not exercise every day at home it behaves in a more restless way.
