CORSO GANG KENNEL

In the Cane Corso breed, black is one of the most sought-after and commonly occuring colors. Melanin, a pigment that produces a solid black color, is genetically dominant in the Cane Corso.

 

Black is probably the most sought after color in this breed, and good thing because it’s genetically dominant.  A black Cane Corso isn’t homozygous for dilution, so their eumelanin (one of two pigments) stays black resulting in a solid black dog. The undercoat of a black Corso is often less dense than the coats of other colors, but it absorbs heat more readily making a dog of this color more susceptible to overheating under the sun.

 

Studies have shown that two black parents will produce a litter of which over 70% will also be black.
