What is a Rotticorso?

It is a crossbreed between the Rottweiler and the Cane Corso. These dogs inherit their large and robust stature from both parent breeds and have their protective and loyal natures.

Parent Breed Origin: Rottweiler 

They are one of the oldest herding dog breeds, dating back to Ancient Roman times in 70 A.D. They are originally from a town in Germany called Rottweill (hence their name).

Parent Breed Origin: Cane Corso

Like the Rottweiler, the Cane Corso dates back to Ancient Rome. They are descended from Roman war dogs, the Canis Pugnaces.

What About the Rotticorso?

It isn’t certain when the Rotticorso first appeared, but they were only recognized by the American Canine Hybrid Club in 2014. This makes them a very recent dog breed but also incredibly rare. 

Rotticorso Build and Appearance

They have a robust, rugged build and are typically very large, weighing 120 lbs. Adult Rotticorsos can also grow up to 28 inches tall.
