Kobe & KJ (American Pit Corso) by Winston Brown:
I have 2 corso Pitt crosses born on 6/26/2016. I simply wanted a better catch dog for hog hunting. I own their mother and father. The litter size was 9. Kobe is 20 inches at the shoulders and is 58 Lbs. He shows more guarding potential. He will let you know when anyone is close and has a loud bark. KJ is 18 inches at the shoulder and 42 Lbs. He is the couch potatoes. You would think he was a normal size puppy until you see him with his litter mates. I have never heard KJ bark They love kids but watch adults closely. For some reason when the pick up a scent they are on it like hounds. They like other dogs but try to dominate them. Overall a very complete dog. When inside its like a switch goes off and they just relax. Outside completely different. They will submit to their dad and mom but will not back down to any other dog. They will be 5 months on Sunday. I can't wait to see how they turn out when they are mature
