Meet Our Cane Corsos
As a hobby breeder, our focus is on making the Cane Corso breed the best it can be. We devote, to each puppy, a high level of socialization unseen with most breeders.
Our Cane Corsos live in our home, not in a shed or cage. I guess you can say we raise, “Free Range Cane Corso’s”. Most of their days are spent running on our 3 acres. We believe that happier and healthier Cane Corso’s will make better parents to their puppies, better pets for their new homes, with better temperaments.
Here are our Cane Corsos…… they range in Brindle, blue, blue brindle and black colors.

San Rocco’s Princess
Our Blue Cane Corso Brindle is indeed a very rare color. With a significant line of Champion blood, this girl is a head turner! I have only seen a few of these and they were all in Italy. This ‘Tigrato’ color is simply ‘Molto Bella’. Her attitude is just as nice as her color. It is not a wise choice to take this girl on a leash in town if you are in a rush as most people will stop you in amazement of her beauty.
If your wondering ..Princess is the dog in our logo.
Good Video to show her excellent body, the music is no longer working on the video.
San Rocco’s Royal Majesty
Our Black Female Cane Corso
Royal Majesty has extensive Champion blood line. We call her ‘Dolce’ since she is ‘Sweet’. She has a heart of gold. A planned breeding with Rico will be in the future. This breeding should produce many ‘Show quality’ dogs with superior conformation and show choice coloration.
We do not use Kennels except for time out, or to separate dogs in heat. Since we run a very socialized Cane Corso hobby program we decided from the start we would not have too many dogs to be sure they all get they attention they deserve, and will always run free as a supervised pack. Since we have full time jobs (not dogs) from home, we have an obligation to our professions. With the new arrival in Jan. of ‘Alpha’ we decided to make a difficult decision. ‘In tact’ males tend to conflict if they do not grow up together, hence, we found a forever home for ‘Rico’ with his new family in CT, who love him. Since we limit our litters we often retire dogs young, Chiara was retired in 2016 and is enjoying lots of love from her new Mom in Mississippi.
