Cocomo was an Italian import- a member of the very first litter of Cane Corso brought to the U.S. from Italy in 1988. Cocomo was the #1 Cane Corso in '91 & '92 (he won 43 Best Of Breeds without a defeat during these years). He was also a 5x Best In Show Winner, Winner of The Tournament Of Champions, Winner of the 1993 ICCF National Specialty...
