Rocky's Story...
This is Rocky, we named him that because I know he has the heart of a Champion !!! When we got the call about Rocky three weeks ago, we knew it was urgent, when we picked him up we could not believe how bad it was. Rock is a PB Cane Corso Mastiff, he is about 2-3 yrs old and should weight 170-180 lbs, he is quite tall. When we got him, he was 102 lbs, had a massive skin infection, ear infection and eye infection - he was fighting so much infection that his eyes had stopped producing tears !!!! He was so thin we could count all his bones. And as if that were not enough he had a tumor on his neck that had ruptured though the skin !! We went to work. We brought him home, took him to the Vet and began to get him healthy. After a week he had put on 8 lbs and was on a daily regimen of antibiotics, ear/eye meds and tons of TLC. After 2 weeks we felt confident enough in his progress to get him neutered and have the tumor removed. WE were so afraid that it was Cancer, that fear was heightened when the vet called during the surgery to say there was another tumor under the first !!!! OMG - NO !! We had both removed and waited for the test results. To our great JOY and surprise, both tumors were NEGATIVE !!!! Rocky does not have Cancer !!!! He is med HW positive, but by comparison...I'll take it !!! Heartworms we know how to fix...Cancer scared me to death.
So now neutered, cancer free.....and well on his way to good health. We feel comfortable posting Rocky for adoption !!!!!

What we have learned about Rocky is that he is a good man, the kind of guy you would want to go to the game with and have a beer or two. Rocky is gentle, ha loves to sleep in the bed and curl up with you. Rocky is patient, letting us dress him up in a really cool Frank Sinatra Hat !!! We found out he loves Classic Rock music and live bands !!!! He likes kids and all people, he tolerates cats and smaller dogs , but barks at large dogs as if to get their attention. He loves his bone and the ONLY destructive thing he has done is to take a pillow off the bed, OUT of the pillow case and chew a small hole in it, play with it and love on it !! Took the pillow case off !!!! LOL !! He rarely barks, is great at the Vet, rides well in cars, is house and crate trained !! He has an even temperament and a WONDERFUL personality !! He is the kind of dog you fight for !!! We have been able to see signs of abuse. ...this dog has bee beaten !! When we pick up something like a hair brush he runs, we threw a stick for him and he freaked like we were throwing it AT him..so we are using a lot of positive reinforcement and being sooo kind to him. He was terrified at first but is coming out of his shell and doing GREAT !!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Rocky, a Missouri City Cane Corso dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cane Corso for sale in Missouri City, or seeking a Cane Corso dog from a breeder in Missouri City.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Missouri City already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Missouri City breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Cane Corso breeders who help with Cane Corso rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Missouri City paves the way for another one to be saved.
