At Mad River we strive to breed dogs of superior type with stable temperaments. We are breeders of the rare Italian Mastiff known as the Cane Corso. We are extremely selective about which dogs we allow in our breeding program and host some of the top Italian and American lines in the world today. Each litter of puppies is carefully planned to improve the breed here in America as well as around the World.
A Cane Corso is a very social dog and should be a member of your family, not just another kennel dog. Our dogs are part of our family and have good and stable temperaments. We take raising our puppies very seriously and only plan a few litters a year, to give each puppy the best possible start to life with maximum human contact. It requires a lot of time and socialization from the breeder to produce a truly confident Cane Corso. Purchasing a Cane Corso is a huge investment of time and money. Please do your research and become familiar with the different breeders and bloodlines before you chose which breeder and puppy is the right one for you. The right bloodlines and early socialization will make a huge difference.
A confident Cane Corso will be great with your kids and an unmatched protector against intruders. They are a very intelligent and dominant breed and need an owner who can take proper leadership. Extremely loyal, these Mastiffs will be a brave protector of both owner and property. Once you have one, you will never want to own any other breed.
We are located in Ohio about an hour west of Columbus. If you would like to visit our kennel, feel free to contact us to arrange a visit. We are always more than happy to have visitors. If you are lucky enough to become the owner of one of our home raised, Italian Mastiff puppies, we offer quality customer support long after your puppy leaves our home.
