    Hello! I’m a new cane corso owner and recently got my “WP” DNA tests back and was just curious what were the breeds the modern day corso were bred with to revive the breed ?

    The DNA test didn't tell of your dogs make up ? I've given thought to having a DNA test done but if it doesn't tell me what's in her make up % wise I guess we just continue loving our un known mutt..

    The DNA test is probably worth doing if you're curious about your dog's ancestry. I remember another CC owner did that and posted his results. I think it included Mastiff, Neapolitan Mastiff, and Boxer. He questioned whether he had a pure CC, but it all made sense to me because all those breeds were used to make the CC. I think the Boxer inclusion is most interesting. Some CC breeders claim their line is most pure and doesn't include Boxer. Personally, I wouldn't mind seeing the Boxer in there because they have excellent working temperaments, but others would rather not see it.
