JAYE AD 02-13-13


ADOPTED 02-13-13 – Jaye has many of the traits of the Cane Corsos breed; he is intelligent, which makes him easy to train. He also has a willingness to please, and the ability to form a close  attachment with its owner. Jaye has shown us that he is loyal and quiet around the house. He is active and even-minded, making him excellent watch and protection dog, even though he may look intimidating.

Jaye is wonderful with children because it is part of his character to be protective yet gentle. He is docile and affectionate with his human family. Add that to his protective yet gentle instincts, he has a very stable temperament. Jaye is a mix that was rescued from the pound a day before he was to be put to sleep.  He is a great dog who loves to be around people.  He is about 5 years old and weighs 90 lbs as of late May 2012.

Don’t let his size or his breed fool you – Jaye is a sweetheart!  This guy is a sucker for belly rubs and will lay at your feet forever while you pet him.  He has been neutered, is up-to-date on his shots and now ready for his own forever home where he can enjoy the rest of his life as a family pet.

ABOUT THE BREED: Cane Corso will pick up the basic commands quickly, so the most important part is controlling and molding the Corso’s strong protective instinct. The Cane Corso is always suspicious of strangers. It’s important to note that the Cane Corso Mastiff is not a fighting dog. It won’t go out looking for a fight; however, it will not back down from a dog that tries to dominate it.

Once the Cane Corso has settled in and knows what it can and can’t do, this dog will be an excellent companion and family pet. It will not wander from the home; they are very very loyal and stick close to their masters. If necessary he can become a terribly brave protector of people, house and property. The Cane Corso is not a fighting dog. They were bred as powerful working dogs for hundreds of years. Therefore they will not go out “looking” for a fight, but on the other hand they will not back down from other dogs who try to dominate them.

The Cane Corso requires an experienced owner who knows how to display a natural authority over the dog. Suspicious of strangers, but wonderful with the family, a well-balanced Corso will put up with strangers if the owners are present. The dog should be submissive to all members of the family. Their ears were originally designed to help them ward off wolves while protecting livestock and are much more sensitive than the rest of their bodies. Generally, they’re practically impervious to pain otherwise; so many Corso owners are often disappointed to find that electric “invisible fence” containment systems don’t deter their dogs.

THE IDEAL OWNER: Jaye would like to spend as much time as possible with his family and its owner so a home where he can be with his human family for a good part of the day would make him very happy. Surprisingly, he can live in an apartment if it gets enough exercise; he does like being outside so the ideal living situation is a home with an average-sized yard. Do you have room in your heart for 90 lbs of love?  If so, Jaye might be your guy!

Sponsored Dogs – They Need Your Help!



RDVG wants to provide you with as much information as we can because some of our mix breeds you might not be familiar with. The below section on “About the Breed” offers information on some of the Breed Characteristics, Children & Pets, Behavior and Personality, Temperament and more.

It is important to point out that in addition to the breed, there is an enormous variety in the way a dog acts and reacts to the world around him. In the end, your dog’s preferences and personality are as individual as you are–and if you can accept that– then you’re bound to enjoy each other.

Children & Pets

Animal Behavior Guidelines

Many children, especially very young ones, do not realize that pets are living animals and not toys. Failing to teach a child how to handle pets properly can result in suffering on the part of the pet and, in some cases, injury to the child. Taking introductions slowly will allow you to introduce family dogs and your children safely

Puppy Behavior, Growth & Development

Each stage of Puppy Growth and development is fascinating; by the time it reaches its first birthday a puppy is considered a mature, adult dog. Puppy Growth rate is fast compared to humans, just compare a puppy of 8 weeks to a baby of the same age.

One of the most common questions asked about a puppy’s growth and development rate refers to the eventual size of the puppy. How big will the puppy grow? How can you determine the adult size of a puppy? A young puppy is tiny and cute – everyone loves puppies! But will the puppy be suited to your environment? How much exercise will be required for a full grown dog? Will the puppy be a suitable pet for children? The breed of the puppy will determine the answers to these questions. A general response to the size and growth rate of a puppy and the adult size of a puppy is therefore not possible – it needs to be specific to the puppy’s breed.
