History & Background: The Cane Corso’s name is derived from the Latin “Cohors” meaning “Guardian” and “Protector.” This dog’s direct ancestor is the Canis Pugnax, which was a war dog used by the Romans. Corsos were also used as a “catch dog” to hunt and pin large animals such as cattle and pigs and also as a herder and watchdog. In Italy, this dog can be seen in history living along side farmers and rural families for hundreds of years. In the 1970s this dog almost faced extinction but was saved by a dedicated few. The Corso still has a large presence in Italy, today. The modern Cane Corso looks slightly different than it’s pre-70s relatives because of selective breeding used to grow numbers of this breed. In 1987 the Cane Corso made its way to the United States and has been popular ever since. In fact, celebrities such as Tracy Morgan, Patti LeBelle and Lebron James own Cane Corsos.

Height: Males: 25 to 27.5 inches; Females: 23.5 to 26 inches

Weight: 88 to 170 pounds

Coat: Corsos sport a short, hard coat that should have a healthy sheen. The close fitting coat has a light undercoat that gets thicker in cooler weather. The Cane Corso has a perfectly waterproof coat.

Color: This dog’s coloring can range from black, grey, red and fawn. Any of these colors can appear in brindle. The solid colored fawn and red dogs usually have a black or grey mask. White patches appear on the chest, throat, chin and toes. Eye color is related to muzzle color. Dogs with black muzzles have dark brown eyes and gray muzzles have lighter colored eyes. Nose color matches the pigment of dog; black pigment matches a black nose and grey pigment matches a grey nose. read more…

Dog Care Tip #193: Dog-Friendly Holiday Decorating Tips knows decking your halls should help make your season jolly! However, decorating for the Holidays and keeping your dog out of it may not always be the easiest of tasks. This season, BBS can give you some simple and quick ways to have a beautiful home for the Holiday Season while keeping Fido safe.

Choose Decorations Carefully – It shouldn’t be a surprise that some decorations are less potentially harmful than others. Here are a few that could cause your dog harm.

Tree – If you choose a live tree, make sure you don’t allow your dog to chew on the branches. If your dog chews on them too much, it can lead to excess drooling or vomiting. Many trees are also treated with chemicals, which help preserve the tree. These chemicals can seep into the water at the base of your tree, making it toxic to dogs. Make sure you cover the base of your tree with a skirt, aluminum foil or plastic wrap to deter your dog’s curiousness.

Lights & Glass Ornaments – If your dog has a penchant for chewing, think about making the switch to plastic lights and ornaments. Non-breakable ornaments will help keep any rowdy dog from knocking over glass bobbles, or cutting his mouth on broken glass.

Garlands – Strings of popcorn and cranberries, tinsel or flocking (a imitation snow decoration) are all great ways to make sure your tree dazzles. However, if your dog were to ingest any of these, it could be a major problem. Upset stomachs, intestinal blockages and more can be caused from these garlands.   read more…

BBS Breed Spotlight: German Wirehaired Pointer

Have you ever heard the phrase “German engineered”? This phrase is a great selling feature because most know that German designed products are very good products. That means dogs, too. The Germans wanted an all-around amazing dog, so they bred the German Wirehaired Pointer, the dog who can do it all. Find out more about this well-designed dog on the Breed Spotlight on the German Wirehaired Pointer.

History & Background: Around the mid-1800s, improvements to the shotgun spurred many in the public to become hunters. In fact, the number of hunters doubled, but this quick growth left a need for a well-rounded, all-purpose hunting dog. And like many other dog breeds, necessity is the mother of all invention, and for the Germans this dog was the German Wirehaired Pointe. GWP’s were bred to be a medium-sized pointer, easily trainable dog that could search, locate and point game. Because of the varied terrain, from mountains to dense forest, and inclement weather this Pointer was bred to have a very particular coat.  In Germanay, this wirehaired dog was first known as the Deutsch-Drahthaar, which was a combination of Griffon, Pudelpointer (Poodle & Pointer) and German Shorthair.  In the early 1920s the GWP was imported to America and was recognized by the AKC 1959.

Height: Males: 24 to 26 inches; Females: 22 to 24 inches

Weight: 60 to 70 pounds

Coat: The wire coat of this German breed is its most distinctive feature.  A GWP’s coat is weather resistant and mostly water resistant. The undercoat is dense to protect in cold weather and in summer is almost invisible. The outer, wiry coat is straight, harsh, flat and 1 to 2 inches long. This dog sports a well-covered tail, bushy eyebrows, beard and whiskers. read more…
