    Happy holidays everyone. I am new to this community and new to the Cane Corso breed, and am proud to say I am close to bringing home two Cane Corso puppies! The problem is, I'm not convinced the puppies are pure breed CC. I have seen plenty of pictures of puppies and adult CC in this forum and on several breeder sites to know what to look for from this majestic breed. And from the initial photo of the entire litter, as well as the asking price of $700 for each, I figured they had to be legit and pure breed. That is, until I got the pics of the puppies I might be bringing home. Can someone take a look at the pictures I've attached and confirm whether or not these are in fact CC, I am going to see the dogs tomorrow and don't want to make a bad decision. Thank you for your time.

    They look just like all the other CC puppies I have seen. Blueish eyes and look like they could be black bloodhound puppies.

    Thank you for your reply, and just so I understand, these puppies could be a mix between CC and black bloodhound? I was a little skeptical of the breeders claims of them being "pure" by the narrower face on the female puppy and the reddish coat/smaller chest the father had.

    You're kidding? Bloodhound is a possible mix here? I always thought young black CCs had a bloodhound look to them I was not suggesting that this could be the mix. They are probably just that dopy CC puppy look that they all have at first.

    700.00 is cheap for a CC. Are they registered? Have the parents been health tested? Is this a BYB?

    I don't think being rude or sarcastic does anyone any favors in this forum, DMikeM. This poster was looking for help and answers and I believe he left with a "Thank You all" because he felt like he was being made fun of. You can't enlighten people about BYB's or the best interest of puppies by belittling them. Just my .02

    The coat color is fine.
    My advise to you however is do your homework, save your money and find a reputable breeder, as this one is not it.
    Not trying to be rude, but this breeder is not breeding quality Corso. They are not doing it to better the breed.
    700$ probably seems like a great deal for a Corso, too good to be true... it most likely is.
    You are better off to save up money, research the breed like mad and find a reputable breeder who is breeding dogs who's type you like, with good structure and a health guarantee.

    I appreciate your response. No harm no foul, everyone's different I respect that. Would you mind recommending any breeders in South Florida? I guess I missed the boat on getting a CC puppy from a breeder in SoCal, I might just hold off until I relocate if anyone you know has any upcoming litters. Much appreciated, cheers.

    Thank you for your input. I agree, thankfully money isn't the problem for me. My own ignorance on the entire puppy buying process along with not being able to find any breeders in my area with puppies, probably because of the holidays and what not. Still, this is a really exciting time for me. I really like the structure of Red Rock Canyon's Cane Corso, Apollo, out of Vegas. Again, no puppies. What are your thoughts on having a puppy shipped? I couldn't imagine putting a puppy through that, thoughts? happy holidays.

    I know lots of people who have had puppies shipped and never had an issue. I have always picked up my dogs in person, a lot of driving involved lol, but everyone I know who has shipped has had a good experience.
    Red Rock has some nice dogs :)
    I have had the pleasure of meeting Sparky and a friend has a pup out of him:) Well, I guess since she is 3 she is no longer a pup, lol.
    I would focus in that direction

    I am trying to figure out where I was rude or sarcastic. I thought the OP (Jose) was confirming I had guess his suspicions about the mix being BH and CC and was shocked and had to ask "Are you kidding?" as in Really no way I'd guess that offhand. If I came off as rude or sarcastic it was not ment to be that way and I apologise if my wording was taken wrong.

    No worries brutha not that big a deal. I was thrown off by the bloodhound comment myself, not sure if you were implying the puppies could be a mix. I'm taking everyones advice since my original post and holding off on my purchase until I find the right, legit breeder, that I have no doubts about. This community has been a huge help to me and my family. Thanks again.

    I do not know anything at all about CC's myself but it looks like you got some solid information from the best resources in this forum concerning them. Good Luck finding your puppy. :)

    Raising 1 pup is hard enough work to do correctly. Did you say your looking to get 2? Most breeders I know who are doing more then just "selling puppies" would discourage getting two pups at once (to a general public/family household). I would save my money and get just one really good pup :)

    The reason I brought up the BH was well many young CCs look just like a dark BH for the first few months have a look here http://www.classicorso.com/cachorros.html and at Natalie's pup. you will see what I mean.

    I don't know that I have ever heard that young Cane Corsi are confused with blood hounds, I could see weim, especially since the dog above is blue but I must say BH is new for me.
