Meet Gunner!! This handsome fella is 1.5 years old and very handsome! Gunner has been very well socialized with children over 5, large and small dogs. He was a very nice gentleman at his evaluation and sat quietly and patiently with his current owner while dutifully watching his family’s children play with the neighbors. Gunner needs to be worked with on crate training as he broke out once when his current family first got him, so they stopped crating him at that point. We are looking for a foster family for Gunner willing to work on crate training so we can find him a forever family!! This sweet boy has such great potential, and we are so excited to be welcoming him into the CCR family!!

    How much does he weigh? Where is he located? I am interested in possible adoption

    • CCR - Ashley Reply

      Hi John, please fill out an application for adoption if interested. Gunner is currently in Pennsylvania, but will need a foster home prior to adoption.

    Hi there. I know Gunner has been known to socialize well with children 5+ . Any consideration for children younger?

    • CCR - Ashley Reply

      Hi Julia, CCR will only place a dog in a home with similar circumstances to a home they have successfully lived in previously. Since Gunner has only lived with children 5+, he will only be placed in a home with children 5+ for everyone’s safety.

    Is Gunner still available! If not I am looking to adopt a male Can Corso! I already have a 2 year old female (spayed) that is the love of our lives. We would like to get her a play mate and a companion that she could grow old with. We also have a small dog that is the alpha dog of the group so he must be able to love a little old lady. We also have a completely fenced large back yard but it is on a kinda busy street so he can not be a runner!

    • CCR - Ashley Reply

      Hi Beth, All dogs listed on the adoptable dogs page will still be available. If you have not done so already, please apply for adoption!

    CCR my name is Joe and I would love to adopt Gunner!!! I have had larg breed dogs my whole life, rotti, boxer etc. I just recently had to put my 11 year old to rest. It was very painful for me. My family loves larg dogs I live in PA and if Gunner is available I would like to be concidered for adopting him. Please let me know if he is still available. Thank you

    • CCR - Ashley Reply

      Hi Joe, Yes! All dogs on the adoptable dogs page are still available for adoption. Please fill out an adoption application!

  6. Joe Reply

    Ok thank you. I will do that now

  7. Joe Reply

    Application completed does it really take 4 weeks to respond back to the application?

    • CCR - Ashley Reply

      Hi Joe, The process usually takes 2-3 months depending on your area and other factors. Please keep in mind that the volunteers who process the applications also keep this website updated, handle owner surrenders, working with foster homes, home visits, transports, fundraising, and also have pets, families, and careers of their own to tend to. We certainly try to move as fast as we can but with 20-30 applications a week (adoption, volunteer, surrender, etc) sometimes we do get backlogged.

    We would be happy to foster Gunner, our application to foster should be just about complete and our home would suit him well, we live in ohio but are in Pittsburgh PA frequently so a pick up would be no problem

  18. Carlos Camacho Reply

    Hi CCR, I have recently applied for adoption for Gunner and was wondering if there are any other pics of him or any update on his status. Thank you.

    • CCR - Ashley Reply

      Hi Carlos, Sadly Gunner is still awaiting a foster home, so I do not have any new updates or photos of him. We desperately need a foster family to step up for our sweet boy!

  19. Yuliana Osorno Reply

    Hi CCR! We have recently filled out a form for adoption, when and where can we go to find out if we have been selected?

    • CCR - Ashley Reply

      Hi Yuliana, we will contact you as your application progresses!

  20. Yuliana Osorno Reply

    ok great! thank you. The application is under Carlos Camacho, hoping to be his forever home

  21. carlos Camacho Reply

    Hi Ashley, I would be more than happy and willing to be Gunners Foster home until our application has processed for adoption. My Girlfriend Yuliana and I fell in love with this gentle giant as soon as we saw his pictures.

    • CCR - Ashley Reply

      Hi Carlos, we greatly appreciate the offer however all our foster families must undergo the same screening process as adoption applicants before receiving a dog.

  22. Amy Kops Reply

    I would love to have a dog like him. Do you send dogs to Los Angeles, California? I am looking for a Cane Corso to have as as a permanent part of the family. How does he get along with other dogs? I have a puddle and my son has pittbull. They are always together, they sleep on/with each other.

    • CCR - Ashley Reply

      Hi Richard, We do adopt to the LA area! If you haven’t applied yet, please do so. We do often get requests to take dogs from your area and always need fosters and adoptive families.

        I would just like to have more info on Gunner. Is he housebroken and does he get along with other dogs small and large and cats.

      • CCR - Ashley

        Hi Vincent – we speak very detailed about dogs with approved households. Gunner is housebroken and he has gotten along with large and medium dogs, we have not tested him with truly small dogs (40 lbs is the smallest dog we have tested him with). He recently entered foster care, so we will be able to get more updated photos and information in the next few weeks.

      • Vincent Filipelli

        OK thank you

      • Vincent Filipelli

        Hi sorry to bother you about these questions can you please tell me how much Carlo weighs and how old he is? Thank you

      • Vincent Filipelli

        I would also like to know where he is located? What state?

      • CCR - Ashley

        Hey Vincent,
        Gunner is 2, normal male size of around 110-120 and located in pa. All info can be found in his profile. States are listed for each dog on the left hand side of the profile (if you’re on a desktop computer)

      • Vincent Filipelli
