The Cane Corso and Pitbull Mix, also referred to as the American Pit Corso, is a huge dog. If you’re not comfortable with big dogs, you should just check out other smaller breeds.
An adult Pit Corso has a height of 22 to 28 inches, and weighs between 70 to 115 lbs. The best way of determining how big a Cane Corso Pitbull Mix puppy will grow is to look at the size of the parents. The bigger the parents, the bigger your puppy will grow.
The American Pit Corso has the muscular body of the American Pitbull and the Italian Mastiff. Most Pit Corsos have the Pitbull’s skull and muzzle, a square-shaped, fleshy nose, a thick and muscular neck, large drop-down ears and almond shaped eyes.
They also have a stocky body, a deep, broad and very muscular chest, and very strong legs. Some Pit Corsos will inherit the Corsos droopy jowls.
Most American Pit Corsos have dark brown eyes, though they can sometimes be a lighter shade of brown or a deep gray. Some Pit Corsos will have very beautiful blue eyes, though this is very rare, which results in blue eyed Pit Corsos being more expensive.
Coat And Color
The Pitbull Cane Corso Mix comes with a short, dense, and shiny double coat. The coat colors include red, fawn, black, and brindle. Neither the Italian Cane Corso nor the American Pitbull Terrier has the merle gene, so it is impossible for the American Pit Corso to be merle-colored.
