It's like the guys who used to breed Pit Bulls suddenly got together and had a vote and decided to breed Cane Corsos (or Filas or whatever they are). Six more pups came in yesterday along with mom and dad. That makes 18 Cane Corso pups at Toronto Animal Services and another 9(?) at Toronto Humane Society.
This most recent batch that's come into TAS are older than the others and are at that age when you want to gather up the whole bunch of them and just squeeze them all day long. Their futures, as in whether or not they go back to their owner, is uncertain and if they don't go back, their futures are still uncertain until they get adopted.
Judging from mom and pop, these guys are going to grow into small bears.
For adoption information on these and other dogs (and cats and other animals), please visit Toronto Animal Services.
Update Jan. 28: These pups and parents have been reclaimed by the owner which begs a lot questions - none of which I have any answers to.
