Today We Rescued A Cane Corso Whose Daddy Was Deployed To Afghanistan
First, I'd like to thank Cris Tarozzi (and Denise!) of the White Kitty Foundation in Walnut Creek, CA for their hard work and efforts in getting a Cane Corso named Max out of a high-kill shelter, Contra Costa County Animal Services in Martinez, CA.
Max was surrendered to the shelter on January 15, 2011 when his active duty military owner from San Ramon, CA got deployed to Afghanistan. The employees at Contra Costa Animal Services were not equipped to handle the adoption of such a large breed of dog (140 lbs.) so Max was scheduled to be put down...until Cris and Denise went to work trying to save his life and contacted Bob after finding our website California Cane Corso.
Contra Costa Animal Services is attempting to contact Max's owner to let him know that his dog was not put down and that he is in foster care. We hope for his safe return after his deployment and would love to return Max to him. It just broke our hearts at the thought of someone serving our country at the expense of losing his dog, so that's why we couldn't allow him to be put down. Thanks, Cris and Denise, for adopting him out of the high-kill shelter!
For more information about how you can help animals in need through donations, foster care or adoption, please contact Bob or Cris Tarozzi at the White Kitty Foundation at (925) 837-2411 or visit their website at WhiteKittyFoundation.org.
If you'd like to know more about the Cane Corso breed, you can visit the largest social network for the Cane Corso at CaneCorso.com. You can also visit the breed-specific rescue website at CaneCorsoRescue.org.
Max is his call name, but his official name is Roman's Tiberius Maximus and he was bred by Marty Giarocco of Roman Cane Corso in Pennsylvania. He comes from mostly Roman Cane Corso dogs, but he also has Scandifio Cane Corso, Di Guardia Cane Corso and Bel Monte Cane Corso in his bloodlines.
I do not know if the breeder Marty Giarocco of Roman Cane Corso was contacted by Max's owner (who purchased him as a puppy) to notify him that he was being deployed and could not keep Max...but responsible breeders should ALWAYS have an open door and a helping hand for any puppy they produce.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of breeders are NOT responsible, so that's why we have an abundance of animals in rescues and shelters.
