About The Breed At San Rocco we strive to breed superior dogs with supreme temperaments through ancient traditions. We are hobby breeders of the Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff), following methods of socialization still used today by some Monks. As hobby breeders, our operation is small and puppies are significantly less than other breeder. Our Cane Corsos (Italian Mastiff) enjoy exercise daily on our three acres in the pristine Mountains of the Shenandoah Valley. As Grandchildren of Italian Immigrants from Puglia Italy, we intend to abide by the ancient standards imposed on this breed making it the ‘Majestic Mastiff’, that it is today. Each litter is meticulously planned to improve this rare and cherished breed of dogs. The Cane Corso is a very social dog, that fits well into the right family structure. This Ancient breed are Mastiff-type working dogs that date before the Roman Empire. Breeders have modified them over the years since their original use by the Roman Legionaries. In Italy the breed we are was widely used to guard Farms, livestock and people. A visit to my Grandfathers town in Italy will show they are still used on some farms as a reliable farm hand. These Dogs were used extensively in ancient Rome to hunt. When studying the history of the Cane Corso we discover they were sometimes used to baby sit young children in ancient courtyard settings, many Italian historians feel this is why they bond very strongly with children. These Dogs are loving, loyal, and highly intelligent. A confident Cane Corso will be great with children and and excellent protector of your household against intruders. This Intelligent and dominant breed requires an owner who will take charge. Once you choose this breed you will be not want to own another. If you are looking for a supreme temperament, excellent bone structure, health guarantee and puppies that have been exceptionally socialized with children then we are your clear choice. San Rocco is a passionate breeder, breeding for the love of their dogs.

We are extremely selective and our focus is not solely on appearance but on supreme temperaments. Our one and only 2013 litter sports two dogs with over 14 Champions and two Grand Champions in their 5 generation lineage.

Our Passion Is The Ultimate Cane Corso.


We are a premier hobby breeder, and have no interest in ‘over breeding’ or ‘in breeding.’ Our sole purpose is the betterment of the breed, therefore, we choose 1-3  litters per year to breed. Our Cane Corso puppies are carefully bred and socialized with children and adults from birth. As a family,  we want to give as much love to our dogs as possible, for this reason we have limited ourselves to owning  less Cane Corso’s, of higher standards. We feel less is better. We are against the concept of mass producing Dogs, as though they are assembly line cars. We are sad to sometimes see Dogs spending their lives in small kennels, without human love, this often leads to bad breeding and bad temperaments.

Our Dogs sleep in our home, and spend much of their time with humans. Our dogs learn their place in the family and are very happy as our canine companions. This happiness is passed along to the betterment of their offspring during breeding.

“We follow a strict agenda of socialization that begins from day one”.

We work hard to produce the finest Italian Mastiffs, using proven social methodologies. Our goal in our hobby breeding program is to create  ‘ A fine Italian Mastiff’, not only by appearance, but most importantly the ultimate well tempered family companion.
