Cane Corso Pit Bull Mix
The Cane Corso Pit Bull Mix will give you an extraordinary and powerful dog although the negative aspects outweigh the positive by crossbreeding them. There are many reasons why I do not agree with the cross breeding of these two magnificent breeds. As I mentioned they are both perfect breeds all by themselves and they are both bred for different purposes. Cane Corso’s are the ultimate guard dogs and Pit Bull’s have different functions such as protection work, herding etc. A Pit Bull is considered an all purpose dog.
Cane Corso Pit Bull Mix | Why not to Cross Breed ?
By mixing these two blood lines together it is possible to take away some of their unique identities. The resulting offspring may no longer be good for guarding purposes or they may take some of the Pit Bull’s characteristics. Another major problem is that these breeds can become extinct overtime. Our future generations may no longer find purebred Cane Corso’s or Pit Bull’s 200 years down the line instead they will find several mutts. Cane Corso’s and Pit Bull’s have a legendary place in the dog world and I would always want to leave it at that.
Many dog lovers will also argue that a lot of these mixes end up in shelters due to poor handlers.

There are also temperamental issues amongst the parent breeds you must know.
Pit Bull’s can be aggressive toward other dogs if they are not socialized well or treated poorly by their human companions. I disagree that all Pit Bull’s are aggressive toward other dogs, I own an American Pit Bull Terrier who is as sweet as a dog can be with all animals around her. The result of her good behavior is from being raised around good human beings who never abused her in any way. She was also socialized very well from puppy hood.
A Cane Corso is one of the best guard dogs you can own, they are extremely loyal to their master and are always on alert. The Cane Corso Mastiff also require a stern owner and early socialization. They can also be aggressive if not trained properly or are treated poorly. Unlike the Pit Bull, a Cane Corso can show aggressive tendencies toward people so it is a must to train them early.
