Rama is a Cane Corso. Cane Corsos are a Molosser (Mastiff) native to Italy. They are relatively new to the US, the first specimens of the breed arriving here in the late 80s.
She was born in 2010 and came to live with me at the age of 5 months. She was purchased not just as a companion but as a show dog, and was shown to her Championship before I retired her. She didn’t enjoy showing so I didn’t pursue a Grand Championship. She much preferred living the quiet life at home with her family and hiking with me.
She obtained her Therapy Dog certification and began visiting schools, hospitals and nursing homes. She’s grown up with our 5 children, and has been a loyal and faithful companion.
