Cane Corso Questions

A Visitor asked the following question on 1/11/2013
I bought a Cane Corso for $700 about a year and 4 months ago as a puppy. Wasn't many breeder choices even close to the Binghamton NY area. We bought a girl, she was the "runt" of the litter. Went well for about a 8-9 months. Then she started limping. Long story short, Colonial Vet (big $$ ortho surgeon from Cornell) said she had malformed knees. They popped out of joint so the vet did patella luxation. One knee was done once, the other had to be done twice. Then came another knee lockup, a grumpy dog in pain, a bite to my wife's face and my hands, we had to put her down. It was awful putting down a dog that was only 1 year and 4 months old. We loved this dog. She had alot of caring from my wife, myself and our two teens. My wife slept on the first floor and we carted it along with a sling for weeks during recovery. Wife did training with it but it was always extremely afraid of strangers to the point of not knowing whether it should hide from them or challenge them. A doggy day care said she was extremely dominant also, even for that breed. What went wrong here? Is this a breeding problem? In breeding?

1/15/13 yes, it is a breeding problem. You get what you pay for in this breed. It is a reason why someone is selling a Corso for $700. Sorry for you lost. What I learn you will pay less in the front but more in the end. I rather pay more now and nothing in the end. Ish & Kim ismail & kim

2/1/13 First off sorry for your loss and the trouble and pain that your family had to go throw. But as far as your question Yes.It is the breeder's fault. Just like the other people said you get what you pay for.They probably never socialized the dog as a puppy. That is a very big deal with large breeds people attend to forget that cute little puppy is going to be a big powerful dog. With out socialization as a young pup you are going to have a lot of temperament problems. And as far as the knees well that wasn't to good as far as my breeds you get a two year health guarantee..So sorry to say you get what you pay for something to remember usually when it comes to rear breeds you are going to pay a pretty good amount for a nice dog. Please feel free to contact me any time if you have any questions I would be pleased to help (626)235-9052 or email. Me at thank you ROBERTD

1/4/14 Hopefully at this point you and your puppy have found peace. Your story is a classic example of why all breeder's should test their dogs mentally and physically prior to reproducing them. So sorry for your experience. Jennifer
