Cane Corso Rescue has recently welcomed Brenda into the family. Sweet Brenda is a 4 year old female, brindled Cane Corso. Brenda loves her children, does well with most other dogs, and does well with cats . She has been successfully treated for heartworms and is ready to receive her FURever family. Brenda is currently being fostered in Florida.
Brenda’s history as we know it: This poor gal found herself sitting on death row in a Miami-Dade shelter; she was heartworm positive. 🙁 A guardian breed in a high kill shelter that is heartworm positive does not have a high chance of survival but fortunate for Brenda a good Samaritan adopted her just in the nick of time. Unfortunately for Brenda, the good Samaritan had little understanding of the breed and treated her more like a lab than a Corso. With a lack of confident leadership in the home, Brenda soon ‘took charge’ of the situation and began to establish pack structure with her being the top dog. Then, the wife said “she had to go” because she was allergic to her so they moved her to the mother-in-laws house and went on a cruise. (I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP). After getting in a scuffle with one of the mother’s dogs, she too said she must go. I might add there were never any proper introductions as the front door opened and Brenda was ushered into the homes and directly into their established packs. Although this family’s heart was in the right place much of what they did was not in the best interest of Brenda or their family. We think Brenda is a bit of a Saint for being able to handle these situations as well as she did. After many unsuccessful attempts to rehome her, the family reached out to Bulldog rescue for support. Of course, they thought they had a Fila Brasileiro. Oh my gosh, finally the stars aligned for Brenda as contact was made with a volunteer in Bulldog rescue who immediately knew she was NOT a Fila and she absolutely needed our help before she landed in the hands of the wrong people as at least the good Samaritans had good hearts. Thank you Andrea for rallying so hard for Brenda.
While in the care of the good Samaritan, she was good with his toddler, wife and house guests. (I am sure there were no proper introductions to the house guest…Saint Brenda shines!) She initially was growling and snapping at his other dogs but had settled down. (Somebody had to be the leader, so Brenda stepped up to the plate as no one else was doing it!). She is loving and quiet and seeks attention.
Brenda has been completely vetted, spayed, micro-chipped, and is current on heartworm and flea/tic prevention. If you are interested in adopting Brenda, please complete an application to adopt and we will process your application as quickly as possible.
