About Us - Peretti Cane Corso


Peretti Cane Corso is a small licensed breeder of the Cane Corso. I am located 45 minutes south of Boston in quiet country setting of Middleboro Massachusetts. My home is situated on acres of land which abuts rivers, cranberry bogs and endless trails for hiking with our loved ones!

I have been involved with many other large breed dogs since early childhood and have finally found a breed that demonstrates all the characteristics that we have been looking for. I currently share our home with our loving Cane Corsos that are companions as well as active in the show ring for conformation. All of my dogs live in my home and are members of our family which has proven to develop stable temperaments in or out of our home environment.


The goal for Peretti Cane Corso is to breed for excellence in type (representation), temperament and soundness. It is of utmost importance to breed only from health tested and mentally sound stock. Our breedings are carefully planned and selected to produce better examples of the breed! We may have some excellent dogs in our program but we feel it is essential to utilize and leverage other great breeders to constantly improve the future of our show/companion program.

This is in line with our renown interest for Italian Molosser breeds (including the Mastino Napoletano) and is proven by our outstanding dog show results and constant ring presence both at the regional and national level.

I am a working professional who has put a tremendous amount of time, effort, energy, and money into preserving the best specimen of the breed. My main goal is to aid in the preservation of the breed and continue to promote overall health, stable temperaments, structure as stated by the standard through proven lines. The end result produces a better example of the breed. After all we owe it to the ancient breed.

The Cane Corso is a great guard dog and extremely loyal to its family and quite protective yet stable. A Cane Corso needs socialization like any other large breed but I highly recommend owners train their dog. The breed is gentle but yet can be protective of children and family.
