      He didn't play much yesterday when I took by to visit (he was worn out from the fitness swim). But here is a short video of him outside before going to swim:

      Thanks I can say, he sure hasn't forgotten how to be a puppy.

      Just to update: The pup is doing great - just going through a bit of an acne issue right now, but otherwise he's to the point where his bad leg is hardly noticeable anymore.

      Thanks, everyone

      He is still doing some workout sessions once a week until he regains complete fitness in that leg, but I'd say he's about 70% of the way there.

      Orijen is a great food, truly worth the price. My suggestion there would be Acana, made by the same company, same quality but lower protien content. Most dogs do not take well to high protien unless they are burning it i.e. very active/working dogs. High counts of unused protein also lead to problems with kidney damage.

      Did this dog come from a breeder? If so have you contacted them? Any health guarantee? Most responsible breeders will offer some type of helth certification or guarantee with dogs of breeds known to have health problems as a testiment to their breeding program. Seems to me as this could easily be related to genetic issue and at that point I'd go after the breeder. It's very common for breeders, of these currently popular or trendy breeds, to produce as many pups as possible with no consideration for proper blood line etc.

      Glad to hear he is doing better and huge props to you for sticking it out and helping him be the best he can be!

      Edit: I'd highly reccomend a product called Pet Kelp as an additive to his food, I've had nothing but fantastic results with any dog consuming it.

      I've currently got him on Taste of the Wild, Pacific Stream and he took well to it. I'll keep Acana in mind, though, if a change in diet is needed.

      Yes, he is from a breeder and compensation was taken care of a while back. Unfortunately, the situation was a bit unique and it made things a bit difficult. But, honestly, money is my last concern when it comes to a pet.

      To your dedication.

      Great looking dog.

      Thank ya

      Finally got around to getting a gate up at the new house so he can roam around while I'm outside/in the garage.

      how much does he weigh, now?

    15. 04-23-2012 05:13 PM #40
      I'd imagine he's coming up to about 120lbs. It's been a few weeks since his last weigh in. I'll try to get him weighed here in the next few weeks as I'm curious myself.

      On that note, his one-year birthday is coming up in just less than a week!

      Here's a little run and sprint. Lost track of the first throw

      Yeah, he looks like he's moving around great!

    19. 07-31-2012 01:23 PM #44
      Well, I think he's officially done with PT/fitness. He hit the age of one just a couple months back and weighed it at 110lbs (lower than I imagined). He's still got some muscle to regain, but his leg doesn't become strained or overworked anymore.

      He looks good!
      110 is pretty big for a Corso, isn't it? Especially at a year old.
      I bet he'll fill out more within the next 8 months.

    21. 07-31-2012 04:36 PM #46
      He should end up right around 120lbs, I imagine. Standard doesn't call for a specific weight, just height ranges. But majority of males fall between 100-125lbs with a height between 25-27in. Stoich is matching up to pretty much exactly the size of the sire.

      Has it really been close to a year? Couple videos from this morning:
