The Cane Corso was bred to be a working dog and is not generally an aggressive breed. However they will be wary of strangers until they are comfortable with them and will protect their homes and families at whatever cost.

Cane Corsos can have cropped or natural ears. Historically ears were cropped to prevent preditors from biting onto them when they were on duty protecting livestock. Ear cropping is not a requirement of the breed standard.
