Lots of new info on the FAQ's page!
Welcome to Pirate's Den Cane Corso. We are a small kennel in Southeast NC. I chose to become a Cane Corso Breeder to help educate the world on what a stable, confident Cane Corso could add to a family. As you browse our site we hope that you will see our immense love and devotion to this wonderful, unique breed. A Cane Corso can be dominant, stubborn and very protective of family and home. However, if you're a good leader that doesn't mind putting your foot down from time to time and are willing to socialize and obedience train your puppy, then this might be the breed for you. We hope you enjoy your visit to Pirate's Den, what we feel is home to some of the finest Cane Corso in the world!
Our goal here at Pirate's Den is not to breed a dog that is recognized as coming from our kennel. We want to breed a dog that people say "Hey, I saw that dog in a history book! What kind of dog if that?" Then we will have succeeded in reviving the greatest breed in the world.
Matthew showing Dei Volsci's Toro, at the Raduno November 17,2012, in Parma Italy. Takes a brave kid to fly 5000 miles and handle a new dog, in the Cane Corso's country of origin. I'm a proud Mama :)
Our baby goober is now a show dog! Blackbeard and Matthew did very well at the Greensboro AKC Show. I'm so proud of them.
Mondo's first "fancy" picture. He looks so different being serious. Bahahaha.........
Bentley said, "No Nana, we don't spoil Pirate's Den "Rocco" at all". Bahahaha..... ;) Blackbeard and Angel knew this little boy was "Hot Stuff" from the beginning ;)
Pirate's Den "I Dream of Jeannie", 9mos old. Mom Angel and
Dad Blackbeard are so proud of their young Peruvian Champion
Blackbeard and Angel produced scholarly children too.
Posideon 9mos, is our writer :)
Pirates Den' "Eve, the Evil Twin", isn't Evil anymore. At 11mos, Carla says she's the perfect girl. Blackbeard and Angel knew all along she was a good girl ;)
Meet "Ittles". Ittles earned her name by being so little we dropped the "L". She makes up in heart what she lacks in size. Her goal in life for now is to conquer the monkey. She brings us so much laughter. We hope you enjoy her as much as we do :)

Can you tell Matthew and Blackbeard are about to get clobbered with sand? Melanie has good aim. LOL
Scandifio's Mondo and Ratman would never fight over the cow.
The apple shouldn't fall far from the tree.
Our foundation female, "Eliska Georg" Ret. of Georg Cane Corso in Czech Republic. Taken at 8yrs old in Winter 2011. Notice how similar the dogs
above and below look to Grandma?
Blackbeard is so similar to his Grandma
This is my DotDot when he was just a few weeks old. I named him DotDot because he was a little bigger than the one white dot on his chest but not as big as two. : ) Hand rearing his litter from birth reminded me just how much I gain from breeding these dogs. Their will to live was a humbling experience. I am still in awe of each of them.
Money say WHAT???
