The Best Cane Corso

Blue Cane Corso

Cane Corso are quite unusual in that they are one of the few dog breeds where gray dogs are actually described as gray in
their breed standard.Dog enthusiasts prefer to refer to gray in most other breeds as blue. Even though the official term for
Cane Corso dogs is gray, many people still favor the term blue.
The breed standard states that a blue Corso may be either light or dark gray, with show judges not favoring any particular
shade. They can also have blue brindle Cane Corso fur, which has tiny, vertical stripes of gray and fawn that are tightly
packed together. Small white patches on the chin, throat, chest, and toes are also acceptable according to breed standards.

Blue Cane Corso Genetics

Puppies born to Blue Cane Corso dogs carry the dilute gene. They generate eumelanin, a pigment similar to that found in
a black Corso. However, the dilute gene reduces the production of pigment, resulting in a grayed-out outcome as a result.
Since color dilution is a recessive genetic feature, puppies can only display it if both of their parents have the dilute
gene.If they only inherit it from one parent, they will carry it silently. Their coat won’t be diluted, but they can pass the
gene onto their own offspring, if they have them.


Blue Cane Corso temperament

Blue Cane Corso is docile and affectionate toward his family, including children. To get him to that point requires
socialization and training from an early age. This dog will not do well in a home with anyone who is afraid of or dislikes
dogs or is unable to manage a large dog. The Corso is highly intelligent.


Blue Cane Corso health


Blue Corso are susceptible to the same acquired health issues, like parasites, injuries, and obesity, during their career as
are all breeds. Additionally, they are predisposed more than the ordinary person to certain inherited issues.
1. Hip dysplasia.A deformation of the hip socket bone known as hip dysplasia causes arthritis, discomfort, and lameness.
According to estimates, more than one in three Cani Corsi dogs suffer from hip dysplasia, making them one of the most
severely affected dog breeds.
2. Elbow dysplasia.Elbow dysplasia is a malformation of the elbow joint. Approximately 1 in 5 Corso are affected.
3. Myelopathy in deterioration. A hereditary neurological disorder called degenerative myelopathy causes the back legs
to become gradually paralyzed.
4. Color dilution alopecia. This condition is directly related to expressing the dilute gene which makes them gray.
Through a mechanism currently unknown, some hair follicles ‘self destruct’, causing bald patches in their coat.
