Welcome to Americana Cane Corso

As the art and science of breeding the perfect dog is a bit like a distiller pouring the perfect bourbon, Americana Cane Corso is a boutique kennel dedicated to producing the best Cane Corsos available in the world. 

Fueled by both passion for the iconic breed and the heritage of a Midwestern work ethic, we have transformed our small hobby farm into a world-class kennel dedicated to well-balanced Cane Corsos; both mentally and physically.

One of our close family friends, Darrel Hamren (Madriver Cane Corso), took a deep interest in our success and encouraged us to spend the resources and source only the best bloodlines in the world. Our deep research led us to the world-renown Luigi Di Rienzo of Valle Dei Lord Kennels in Sora, Italy and we imported Gioia, our first female.With each new day we continue to learn and study lines from around the world, always searching to improve our own program and maintain The Traditional Cane Corso Italiano!

Whether your interest is to find a companion or to enhance the bloodlines of your kennel, we trust that you will find Americana Cane Corsos offer the best this remarkable breed has to offer. Not only do they have the iconic physical standards of the breed, they are smart, trainable, eager to please, loyal, noble, confident, and fearless protectors.

As your master Cane Corso breeder, I trust that this wonderful breed will enhance your world as much as they have ours.

“Dogs are our link to paradise.

They don’t know evil or jealousy or discontent.
To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon
is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring –
it was peace.”

– Milan Kundera
