Scout, what do you mean by iffy? I can only tell you about my dogs and my breeders as they are the only ones I've been around.The trait that stands out with my two compared with other dogs I have had is the distrust to strangers.Bella will check someone out then walkaway. Sophie is the more aloof wants nothing to do with anyone except family.Sophie is also dog aggresive with dogs besides the family.
iffy as in temperaments. the ones i have met seem to all have widely varied temperaments. 1 dog, if given a chance, would kill you. she had to be muzzled everywhere the owners took her, because she would attack anyone or thing. another one was asked to leave our boarding facility less than an hour after he had been dropped off because he was trying to attack anyone who came near him. he was the first dog i have ever seen my boss ask an owner to come get their dog out of our place. a few others i have et are pretty decent with people but not good at all with other animals. and one i just met recently was an absolute doll. she was adopted from corso rescue and when i first met her i had no idea she was a corso. she had a very bull mastiffy head and face and a body like an english mastiff. i asked the owner if she were a bull or english mastiff and that is when i found out she was a corso.
so i was just wondering if those characteristics were typical of the majority of corso's or if it was an owner problem. i dont really know anything about the breed so i just wanted ot get a better udnerstanding of them.
