Who We Are
The Lionheart Family
Lionheart Cane Corso is a small hobby breeder of the Cane Corso. We are located on 5 acres in Northern California. We have been involved with this wonderful breed for over 10 years. We share our home with our Cane Corsi. Our involvement with this breed has been and remains to be a constant learning process. During the very beginning of our involvement with this wonderful breed, we were fortunate enough to find competent mentors who helped satiate our appetite for knowledge about the Cane Corso. These noteworthy breeders were very generous in sharing their knowledge and experience with us. They helped us understand the very important role breeders undertake, that being today's breeders means we are the guardians of the future of the Cane Corso. Lionheart Cane Corso breeds only to preserve the best possible qualities of the Cane Corso. We insist on a stable temperament and correct structure according to the Cane Corso standard, in essence a quality Cane Corso of sound mind and body. We are very active in the conformation show ring, we attend performance events, and most importantly we put a large emphasis on the health of our corsi both mentally and physically before they are considered to be breed worthy. Our puppies are raised in our home, with tender loving care. We give our puppies the very best possible start in life following a protocol of early stimulation and socialization. We have studied up on breeding better dogs, choosing sires, and choosing puppies for families who we feel will be able to continue to be the guardians of this special breed. The Cane Corso is a large dominant working breed. It is not a breed for everyone. We carefully screen our potential families and have a very strict criterion that needs to be met before we place one of our puppies. We as breeders of the Cane Corso are committed to the pursuit of our goal to breed excellent quality Cane Corsi. We plan to continue to immerse ourselves in the world of the Cane Corso which we love so much. We couldn't have had so many accomplishments with our dogs alone; it takes patience, time, family and friends who worked together with us to be the guardians of this great breed.
