In shelter Dog

Cane Corso

Boogie down Bronx in the house! This gorgeous guy is ready to find his forever family, and he wants his new people to know these 10 things about him:

I am a Cane Corso and I am about 2 years old. For my breed, I’m not a very big guy. I probably won’t ever weigh more than 85lbs.

When I came to the shelter, I was a mess! I had an unusual head tilt, terrible cherry eye and sometimes I walked in a circle. The nice people at the shelter took x-rays of my body to make sure that these issues weren’t the result of a previous trauma or injury, and once I was cleared, I went to The Bullpen. Since arriving at the sanctuary, I have had my cherry eye repaired (twice!) and I no longer spin or hold my head to one side!

Even though I’ve made significant progress during my time here, I still have a few quirks that I think my new home should know about. The vision in my left eye isn’t great, and neither is my hearing. As a result, I sometimes get startled by people and other dogs, unless they are being really loud and/or in my direct line of sight.

Because of my disabilities, I think an adults-only home that could provide a calm, laid-back environment with a daily routine would be the best place for me. I might be able to live in a house with children over 13, as long as they weren’t too loud or rambunctious and had some previous experience/training with special needs dogs.

If my new family has dogs, I will need a VERY slow, supervised introduction to them. It’s not that I don’t want to be friends with other dogs, because I do. However, given my special needs, I can be reactive when surprised, and I wouldn’t want to cause any issues.

I’m not really sure how I feel about felines, so I’m not sure that a cat-friendly home is a good fit for me.

The words that best describe me are silly, affectionate, and sweet.

My favorite things are sunbathing, playing with toys, and hanging out with my people.

I am housebroken, crate-trained, and I know how to use a dog door. I also know basic obedience, and I’m really good on a leash!

I am fully vaccinated, heartworm negative, neutered, and microchipped.

Ready to give Bronx the forever home of his dreams? Fill out our Adoption Application, located at under the work with us tab.
We highly recommend that our potential adopters fill out an online application as soon as possible, as it greatly expedites the process of finding the right dog for your situation.  The adoption app is available on our website ( under the work with us tab.  If you choose not to fill out an application before inquiring about a particular dog, please briefly tell us about yourself, family, and lifestyle since this will help us determine if the dog you’re interested in is a good match.

Our dogs are available for adoption nationwide but preference is given to adopters willing to do an in-person meeting.  Please understand that our dogs are not adopted on a first-come, first-serve basis, but rather we strive for a “perfect placement” so we know that they will not be failed again.
