Cricket is our 21-month-old Cane Corso she is a Brindle that is very tall has huge feet and weighs in around 150#’s.
She is eating 4 to 4 1/2 cups a day of a high protein food. The one we buy is 26% protein and 20% fat. I had to cut back on her food because she was getting fat right now she actually looks really good.
Cricket is the biggest female to be born at Shady Acres so far. I believe the biggest male is around 170#s.
There are people on the waiting list for a puppy out of her and she should be going into heat within the next month. This will be her first breeding and hopefully it will not be a huge litter.
She loves to run in the backyard and drink out of the birdbaths because they are just her height. Going on a walk and investigating the area outside of our yard is one of her favorite things to do.
When it is bedtime she gets 1 hour in the house and she drinks about 1 gallon of water gets her treats and in the kennel she goes for the night.
She loves attention and is great with the grandkids but when she starts running full speed towards you that is when you think you are going to be run over by a freight train. She will run straight at you and miss you by 1 – 2 inches this is part of her silly personality. There is nothing funnier than a 150# silly dog.
Never let the size of a dog intimidate you just because a dog is big does not mean they are mean.
