"...I was properly impressed with the fact that your breeding was heavily invested in temperament..."

Hi Marty,

First, let me thank you again for all the time you spent with us on Sunday, March 2, 2003. Your knowledge and dedication to the Cane Corso breed were evidenced all through your discussion with us. Meeting the dogs was a revelation; here we were, surrounded by over half a dozen very large dogs who had never met us before, and acted as though they had always known us.

Well, this is some puppy! I have to say, in 40 years of having dogs, this is the smartest, most independent, self-possessed puppy I have ever had. Cleo is extremely attentive to all instructions and new experiences, and learns very quickly. She was 7 1/2 weeks old when we brought her home. Now, at the ripe old age of 10 weeks, she is great pals with her "packmates," the Rottweiler, the Sheltie and the terrier mix. She is unfazed by 2 extremely loud and large cockatoos, 2 African Greys, and a singing Tres Marias amazon parrot. She eats well, plays hard, and goes into her crate on her own to nap when she is tired, something that she has been doing since the third day she was here. She goes on her wee-wee pads, or almost on them most of the time, and since the weather has turned warmer, she has been introduced to the run, where she is with the other dogs, (under close supervision, as she thinks she can play as hard as they do). She walks up there and back on her lead, very nicely, and has been wearing a collar for a week and a half as though it was part of her skin. She starts "Puppy Headstart" class next Monday, and I fully expect her to go to the head of her class.

Joe and I are both totally enamored of her. I will try to get some good pictures of her to send to you. She is definitely developing that Cane Corso look, with her wrinkled forehead and intelligent expression.

Again, I must tell you that breeding and genetics will tell, even at this early age. I am so glad that I spent the time that I did researching the breed before deciding upon the Cane Corso. I have always loved the Mastiff breeds, and this is a very old one. It was a hard decision not to go back to the St. Bernards that I used to breed and show, and although I will always love them, I believe that my present choice is the best one. I looked into many Cane Corso breeders before contacting you, but having had large dogs for years, I was properly impressed with the fact that your breeding was heavily invested in temperament, easily the most important factor in owning a breed of this type. The fact that they are all so well conformed, is just so much icing on the cake.

Thank you again for everything, and especially for Cleopatra Helena, (well named for two beauties of the ancient Mediterranean world), and we will keep in touch.

Barbara and Joseph Levine.

"...is friendly toward everyone
and their dogs."

Hi Marty,

Thought you might want to see these pictures of Caesar I took yesterday. Some baby.

He likes PetSmart, and is friendly toward everyone and their dogs. The two of them draw a lot of attention and complements. He does go out by himself, and is running around more with the other dogs. He walks beautifully on a leash.

More reports to follow.
