The Best Cane Corso

Brindle Cane Corso

A Cane Corso with a particular patterning that is frequently seen is referred as as being brindle. The effect is known as
Tigrato in its native Italian because of its resemblance to a tiger’s striped coat. Unsurprisingly, owners love this effect for
the distinctive and eye-catching aesthetics it can create.Brindle is located in the K Locus which is the same place as the
Dominant Black color which is so common amongst Cane Corso. Due to Brindle being recessive to the Dominant Black
color . A recessive gene means that both parents need to possess the gene for any puppies to be born Brindle. If a Brindle
is bred with a Cane Corso which does not carry the gene then no Brindle puppies will be produced. However you can
have two non-brindles produce Brindle offspring if they both carry a copy of the Brindle gene.

 

Black Brindle Cane Corso

 

Black Brindle is the most common style of Brindle that is found on a Cane Corso. This is unsurprising given the
prominence of the Black color on a Cane Corso. On a Black Cane Corso the brindle pattern will display in alternating
stripes between the normal dark black color and a lighter dark brown. As every brindle pattern is unique it is impossible
to predetermine how much of each will show but more common to see more of the Brown color than Black. When this is
reversed and the dog is almost all Black this is often referred to as a Reverse Brindle effect.
The black brindle Cane Corso is recognized by both the AKC and the Fédération Cynologique Internationale (FCI).

Grey Brindle

 

Like the black brindle, these paler Cane Corsos have a brown base color interspersed with gray or blue stripes. Less
common than the gray Corso, the grey brindle is nevertheless relatively easy to breed for, and two grey brindle parents
will produce a litter of at least 50% grey brindle puppies.
Whereas black brindle Corsos rarely have any brindling on the tips of their muzzles, this is common in grey brindles who
also have gray noses.
Like the other brindle Corsos, the gray Corso has a longer life expectancy than its solid-colored cousins.

Chestnut Brindle


The chestnut brindle can be difficult to distinguish from the black brindle but is far less common. Like the gray brindle,
the chestnut brindle Corso has a brown or red base while its stripes are reddish-brown.
Less common than some of the other colors, chestnut brindle can be difficult to breed for, especially as “at least one gene
responsible for coat color is located on a sex chromosome.” That means a puppy’s coat color is influenced by its gender,
as well as the color of its parents.
