Atlas is a 1-year-old Cane Corso mix who is smart and eager to please. He is housebroken, crate trained, and not destructive. Atlas crates easily and will sometimes go in of his own accord to nap. He can be trusted out of the crate.
Likes: He loves his people, other dogs, pleasing his people, being withhis people, walks, massages, playing with his toys with his people, and PEANUT BUTTER!
Dislikes: Cats/birds/squirrels/bunnies (Actually he loves them- they are super exciting and he really wants to chase them!)
Personality: Atlas is atypical Corso. He’s very dedicated and loyal to “his circle”. He wants to please his people and is quite trainable. He is watchful and alerts you to strangers, but will allow people in as long as you admit them.
Temperament: Atlas takes oral meds in a bit of peanut butter quite easily. Once you build trust, he will allow you to handle him and tolerates his eye cream. (He had surgery on both eyes which is healing now). He does have a high prey drive, so Atlas should not go to a home with cats. He is also still very much a puppy and does not realize his strength yet, so he should not go to a home with young children. He likes other dogs and will appropriately try to initiate play.
Energy level: Loves to play and go for walks, but Atlas is just as happy to be with you and relax while you watch a movie.
Favorite activities: Walks outside, looking for critters on said walks, being with his people, sitting/standing on his people’s feet, playing with toys, and peanut-butter filled Kongs.
Good with cats, dogs, and kids (over 6)?: Good with dogs (not tested on small dogs), suggest older children.
Not good with: CATS/small critters (ferrets/hamsters/etc).
Housetrained: ABSOLUTLEY. He is awesome.
Crate trained: Yes, but Atlas is trustworthy out of it as well.
Requires a fenced yard: Probably - due to prey drive.
Walks well on a leash? Once he knows you won’t let him pull you, yes.
Challenges: Corso typical behavior so Corso experience is a plus!
Any Medical issues? Atlas had surgery on both eyes. His right eye is still healing. He has creams applied and it seems to be improving. He has also been treated for ear & skin infection (shelter vet thought allergies). He is currently on a good quality food and he seems to be doing well. He will need another few weeks to be sure it’s effective.
What would be the best kind of home? Atlas would benefit from someone with breed experience and another dog to play with. He’s a doll who is very eager to please and needs to be with his people!
To ensure proper house training and socialization, puppies will only be adopted to homes where an adult will not be away more than an hour per day, per month of age of the puppy, up to 6 months.
Certain large-breed dogs should not be sterilized prior to 12 - 18 months of age. If you adopt an intact puppy, you will sign an adoption contract agreeing to have the dog sterilized at your expense at the time your veterinarian recommends. Proof of sterilization must be provided to Mastiffs To Mutts Rescue as soon as the procedure is completed. If the puppy is not sterilized as required, Mastiffs To Mutts Rescue reserves the right to claim legal ownership of the dog.
