Where does the Icelandic Shepherd Dog come from?

For many centuries the Icelandic Sheepdog was the “Swiss knife” of the lonely farms and workshops of the great North Atlantic island. In the extremely harsh weather they had to herd sheep, keep small vermin, help in hunting, as well as taking care of the house and the farm and especially the children.

    Cane Corso
    Italia FCI 343 - Molosoids - Mastiff

    Cane Corso

    The Cane Corso It is a versatile and balanced dog that can adapt to all.

    Content

    History

    Something small and elegant that the Neapolitan Mastiff, the Cane Corso (or Italian Cane Corso) It was used in the past not only as Cattle dog but also in the wild boar hunting, and as dog escort on long journeys of traders and, even, as a grip of Bull Dog. It was widespread throughout the southern Italian region, and even more so in Calabria, Lucannia, Pugglia, and Sannia, until end interrelating so with history, the tradition, and local legends that, the Royal lottery game, corso was assigned the number 22.

    Both fierce and determined appearance, as its imposing structure of all the molossians, They seem to be on the agenda of its name, therefore means powerful Corso, robust, strong, and these are, without a doubt, its main characteristics.

    Others attribute the etymological origin of the word into Latin “Cohors” or save more of the body or to the Greek 'kortos', referring to the fact that he kept and watch people and animals during periods of transhumance. At last, others see the name associated with the island of Corsica. The truth is that out of Italy is known very little about the Italian Corso Dog and that even in their country of origin, for years, the race has remained forgotten and ignored. He took that in 1973 Professor Giovanni Bonatti refer to the presence in the province of Puglia in a “molosser dog for short hair, different from the Neapolitan Mastiff, similar to the Bullmastiff and similar to the dog's Ca de Bou” for a group of enthusiasts put hands to work and were recovering it and to introduce inside and outside the country.

    In fact its official recognition from the ENCI (Ente Nazionale di Cinophilia Italian) has only taken place in January of 1994, Once the table of work of the società Amatoria Cane Corso (SACC) provide sufficient documentation, photos, data and a large group of copies typical to defend their existence and ancient origin.

    It is almost always difficult to make history in the history of a breed of dog, but in the case of the Cane Corso had enough documentation that revealed its presence from very old in the southern part of what is today Italy. Certainly had to be traced back to many centuries ago, Learn about the legends of the inhabitants of the Mezzogiorno, investigate its folklore and more ingrained traditions, Learn about its history, the superstitions of an entire people, but, At last, After many years of intense and arduous research, Professor Fernando Casolino, of the SACC, He managed to gather enough data to this impressive animal because they have been many, many written and pictorial references that have been found on this dog. It should be noted some dating as far back as the 15th and 16th centuries, such is the case of the burlesque poems written in Italian mixed with Latin of the Benedictine Friar Folengo or citations in the “Of Quadrupelibus“, the renowned physician and naturalist Gessner, known as the “German Pliny”, without forgetting the very detailed description of the ínclito Valvassone, that showed his power and the strength of their jaws in the “Poem of the head”.

    In the 18th century, the count of Leclerc, Georges Buffon, mentioned you in your “Natural history” as well as did Oronzio Costa in his Treaty on “The fauna of the Kingdom of Naples”, published in 1839. Thirty years later Palumbo wrote also about our protagonist in his “List of mammals of Sicily”.

    Quotations continued to be frequent and already in 1900 Spalikowski mentioned him in his work “Evolution of the dog in the human society“, of essential reading for all lovers of dogs; much closer in time are articles and works published by Fiorenzo Fiorone, Danilo Mainardi, Bonatti Mizzoli and how does not, my good friend Mario Perricone, who in the “Great encyclopedia of the dog” published by Agostino in 1987, He wrote widely on race, which is considered the most important monographic article on Cane Corso. Recently also of Priscus and Johson cite you in the “Canine Lexicon” referring to him as “a recreation of the old Marcellaio Cane”, under the heading of “Sicilian Branchiero”, explaining that exist exclusively in Sicily and was known for his particular way of moving with the herd, so according to the authors could have even related to the German bullenbeiser and “on the island, it worked like a dog of butcher and a driver of flocks of unique skills” What, at a time “He could participate in bulls fighting just as did it other dogs of butchers in the continent”.

    Priscus and Johson they also claim that in the eighties they arrived to the United States.UU. the first puppies imported by a Sicilian farmer who died shortly afterwards and the little basis for breeding in that country.

    They have been missing many years of work and staff of a few efforts to again talk of Italian Corso Dog, race so ancient and so deeply linked to the traditions and the history of the South of Italy and properly recover virtually from scratch. There was, in fact, many contradictions about what dog really resembled and locked up in itself the very essence of Italian Corso Dog and took many discussions and much discussion to finally reach agreement on that copy should settle the bases of the new breeding lines.

    Gone are all agreed on a male name “Dauno” He summed up the essence of the breed and it charted the path should follow those, with a passion beyond doubt wore years looking for precisely this path. It was decided to locate up to three subjects closely blood to determine the characteristics of the breed, as the teachers Ballota had described, Bonatti and Casolina.

    After exhaustive research studies and, at the end, not without major sacrifices, the recovery programme was gradually bearing fruit. In 1988, the Board of Directors of the ENCI decided that it had time to gather the largest number of copies, produced by people not linked to that society both the scope of the SACC, and carry out a pilot trial in order to check homogeneity of type, construction and character and its similarity to the characteristics described in the draft standard to the SACC had submitted them. In three exhibitions-Bari, Florence and Milan- the judges Morsiani, Perricone and Vandoni examined fifty copies; then, in the autumn of that same year the SACC presented the ENCI the outcome of the first census carried out by the Lords Bruno and Indiveri which is didn't data out of a total of 57 copies perfectly typical and rustic already registered.

    Did You Know?

    The Cane Corso is also known as Dogo di Puglia, that means “Dog Puglia”.

    As result of this effort the ENCI promulgated the opening of a “Open book” in which all adults who had been duly tattooed could register, and therefore recognized as conforming with the standard project and in just four years became part of the same over 500 dogs, so it became clear that the recovery programme had been successful.

    Such results finally gave rise to the official recognition of the race in January of 1994.

    Modernity and the decline of the work for which it was intended, they have not prevented this race keep their characteristic qualities. It continues to be a dog with tenacious temperament but that it does not bite for anything. It is one of the best races of property protection.

    Cane Corso's Education

    With patience and sensitivity
    The Cane Corso is not a beginner dog and only belongs to responsible hands. Learn quickly and with pleasure if you treat it with patience and sensitivity during training. If it is to be kept as a family dog, Cane Corso's protective instincts should not be encouraged during training. Early and comprehensive socialization is especially important, so that the dog gets used to other people and animals and reacts calmly in all situations.

    Care of Cane Corso

    Cane Corso's coat is shiny, smooth and short, and does not require extensive cleaning. Cane Corso has a thin undercoat that can protect you from the cold at times. A massage sponge or soft brush should be used regularly to stimulate blood circulation. – this ensures a healthy and shiny coat.

    Nutrición Cane Corso

    Only with high meat content
    With prepared food, pay attention to a high meat content, low grain content and high quality. An adult dog needs enough fresh meat and vegetables for a healthy diet.. Young dogs, on the other hand, should not be fed too much protein. Foods that are too high in protein can promote growth too quickly and promote bone disease. Diet should be divided into two meals a day. One of them must be given directly after the daily walk. In this way the dog gets its reward after the “work done”.

    The life expectancy of the Cane Corso

    Cane Corso can reach a relatively high age, what is really atypical for such large dogs. A healthy and active dog will easily reach the age of 10 a 14 years, as long as you exercise a lot and have a balanced diet. This robustness and long life expectancy compared to other larger dog breeds are due to the strong bone structure and robust construction.

    Buy a Cane Corso

    Serious breeders offer not only a pedigree with a complete record of the dog's ancestors, but also a complete advice that goes beyond the purchase. Before buying or reserving a puppy, exhaustive information must be obtained from the local authority to know what conservation regulations exist.

    History

    Where did the Irish Terrier originally come from?

    The Irish Terrier, he is a high-ranking terrier. It is often called the “Irish Red” for its distinctive reddish fur. Its roots are, as in all terriers, a little on the ground. The name Terrier is derived from the Latin “Terra” for the earth. So they were dogs for movement on land and underground.

    High-ranking terriers were supposed to run with the herd on fox hunting. When a fox took refuge in its burrow, terriers had to chase him underground and get him out of the burrow, as it is called in the language of the hunters. One can imagine that the fox, after all a well fortified predator, does not voluntarily abandon its burrow. So a Irish Terrier I had to be very brave, fearless and defensive. Even today “Irish Reds” they are hunting dogs in their hearts. They are not afraid and with every fiber they strive to do their job as well as possible. We can still experience all these qualities in the Irish Terrier as a companion dog.

    They have a special charm but also the challenge of these their ancestors. But red Irish was also used in many different ways at home and on the farm.. Must keep the yard free of mice and rats, protect chickens, pigeons and rabbits for the night of the martens and foxes. At last, had to watch over the farm and its inhabitants and, if necessary, protect them.

    Ludwig Beckmann reported in 1895, in his two-volume work on “Dog breeds”, that already in 1847 in Ireland they had started to breed an independent terrier, the ancestor of the current Irish Terrier. At least that's what the Irish claimed, while the English for a long time dismissed this dog as a variety.

    Until 1880 the color of the Irish Terrier was, in fact, still quite uneven. Only little by little did Irish breeders mark their dog with the red coat color as something special. But then it became very popular, even in England and especially in the US, where many Irish had migrated. The first special breed club for Irish Terriers was founded very soon, the 31 in March of 1879 in Dublin. It was then the first race of Irish Terrier in being officially recognized by the British Kennel Club with Ireland as the country of origin.
