Why Blackshire Kennel ?
At BSK, we aim to become well-known, reputable Cane Corso breeders. We have been involved with the breed since 2019 and have turned our passion for animals into a business amidst the pandemic. It's an opportunity for us to share our personal experiences with the Italian Mastiff and create life-changing moments for new owners, one pup at a time.
We are not self proclaimed experts. We rely on various accredited sources for support, guidance and continued education about the breed, as well as due processes. Our main priority is ensuring the health and well-being of all our animals from birth until they leave with their forever family - and beyond. We are very personable and welcome any questions regarding our kennel.

THE CANE CORSO (pronounced KAH-neh-KOR-soh)
"Smart, trainable, and of noble bearing, the assertive and confident Cane Corso is a peerless protector. The Corso's lineage goes back to ancient Roman times, and the breed's name roughly translates from the Latin as 'bodyguard dog.'At nearly 28 inches at the shoulder and often weighing more than 100 pounds, with a large head, alert expression, and muscles rippling beneath their short, stiff coat, are at a glance intimidating creatures. Their imposing appearance is their first line of defense against intruders. As one writer put it, 'An understated air of cool competence, the kind of demeanor you'd expect from a professional bodyguard, is the breed's trademark. Cane Corsi are intelligent, loyal, eager to please, versatile, and intensely loyal to their humans, but are also assertive and willful, and can end up owning an unwitting owner. As with any other big guardian dog, responsible breeding and early socialization with people and other dogs is vital."
