Description

The American Pit Corso is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the American Pit Bull Terrier and the Cane Corso Italiano. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.

She now shares her life with her human family plus 8 cats, a Rotti, a Pug and her sister Zen."
