Meet Dante

So my formal name is Dante but Lisa likes to call me Bubba. She says “Dante” is a little too sophisticated for me. What’s THAT supposed to mean?? She says it’s because I’m like a bulldozer in a china shop. I like to play rough- I’m a boy for gosh sakes! I’m not one of those prissy girls who act so sweet and then turn on a dime. Yep- I’m a boy Cane Corso and what you see is what you get. So let me tell you my story… My previous owner, who shall remain nameless, turned me in to the Humane Society because he couldn’t keep me. Why, you might ask??? Because his girlfriend had a baby and she was too scared to introduce me to it. Now I had done nothing to deserve that! The other dog in our house, a Shar pei, was introduced- but not me. She kept nagging my dad to “get rid of me or she would leave.” Well, l I say “good riddance, sista!” but dad wasn’t a strong enough guy to tell her that. Then we all moved to Florida for a time but came back when it wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. The girlfriend took the baby to visit her family in another state til dad could find a place where we all could live. So we moved into his dad’s house. His dad didn’t really like me either and gave my dad 12 hours to “get rid of me.” What- am I a piece of trash to be gotten rid of??? Meanwhile, the girlfriend won’t come back until I’m gone. So dad dropped me off at the Humane Society. Dad was crying as well as the girls who worked there. Me? I had no idea what was going on but I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to be happy about it. The Humane Society immediately called Lisa and she said I could go to Blue Lion. They called my dad, who was in the parking lot crying his eyes out, and told him that a rescue would take me. Unbeknownst to me, Lisa and dad talked the next day. She told him to go pick me up and meet her in Denver the next day so we could all get to know each other. I was so excited when dad came to get me- I thought he had changed his mind and we were going to get rid of the girlfriend and we’d be one happy family again. Not so fast Dante… Dad brought me and the Shar pei to meet Lisa and we went for a nice walk. Lisa couldn’t understand why guys are so willing to give up their dogs for a girl but most girls won’t give up their dog for a guy! Maybe I should have been owned by a girl- I’d still have my home. When our visit in the park was over Lisa put me in her car- wait I thought I was staying with dad!!!She brought me home and put me in a kennel with a doghouse with blankets. Sure, it was cozy enough but I wasn’t with dad! I was so sad I didn’t come out of the doghouse for 3 days! But Lisa told me that dad had agreed to come down on weekends and do some handyman work for her and I could stay with him in the other house. She didn’t really believe that he would really give me up forever. I didn’t either. Anyway, I got used to life at Blue Lion. Then one day dad came late in the afternoon with one of his friends- one of the ones who told him to get rid of me. They took me for a walk and I was so excited but then they left again. I was ok because dad was going to start visiting on weekends. But dad never came to visit again.
Lisa brings me into the house and I really love that but wish it was just she and I in there. There’s a bunch of dogs and I don’t really want to share her. I don’t really interact with the others at all. I’m usually ok with everyone but every once in awhile, I get into a fight. Those other dogs need to know that I’m the main man! So when I do that, Lisa puts me back into a kennel for a few days- hoping I’ve learned my lesson. So here I am looking for a forever home. I’m 3 years old, I’ve had 2 ACL surgeries, am neutered and I’m housebroken. And I am the most handsome Cane Corso in the world. Sound good so far? I am a lover and like to sleep in the bed with you and I love to play with my toys. Usually you can find me trotting around with some sort of toy in my mouth hoping to get some playing time with my human. Since I can get jealous, no other animals please. Don’t get me wrong, I can be a perfect gentleman when we go for a walk and meet other dogs- I just don’t want to live with another animal. So if you’d like to have one dog and want to play and have a best friend, I’m your guy.
