Despite being a mastiff breed, the Cane Corso is very active and playful. They do have the typical large mastiff frame and appearance, but their temperament makes them very unique. When in good health, they have obvious muscles that are a perfect indicator of the kind of energy the breed has – unlike their fellow mastiff breeds. Besides their appearance, they do share the same effusive drooling, snorting, and snoring, so you do need to be prepared before your Cane Corso arrives.
