Our Females


Ceaster, Cece, and Emmy

GCH RockHaven's Wilderness of Tekoa, CGC, RN, BN

Tekoa is out of out 2017 GCH Silvia & CH Alvaro dei Dauni litter.  She stole the show here at RockHaven. Her temperament is truly lovely & engaging while also being excellent judge of character & protective!  Tekoa reminds me SO much of grandmother Mona Lisa (only not as "alpha" as she was!) with her presence and magnetism.  She moves true and has one of the prettiest fronts, and lovely expression. She has done well in shows all over the USA. One of her best features is how true and balanced she is.  But the best thing about these girls in her entire litter are the brains between their ears!  Tekoa is a love bug and good watch dog with a huge bark.

 RockHaven's Party in the Forrest, CGCA  (Rave)

Rave is out of GCH Cece and CH Forrest.   She is a wonderful combination of the two of them.  We say this with pride, in that "Rave IS Cane Corso." Her character, intuition, and instincts are the epitome of what a cane corso female should be. She is cool, collected, aloof, discerning, all with an element of regal soulfulness, and entirely loving to her family.  Foremost, she loves nothing more than teaching the younger pups how to be proper corsos. She loves puppies and takes huge pride in the time she spends gently correcting and guiding them.  This is to an extent that other breeders have sent young pups to Courtney's house for Rave to teach them the ropes.  On the serious side of that, she is appropriately protective of the household, and has a lot of drive for working and protection.  The versatility of this girl goes far -- except to what she would call an unnecessary beauty pageant of the conformation show ring. She definitely thinks that world is beneath her!!  (We instead let brother Bruno, with his big ego, take that spotlight.)

GCHB RockHaven's Won't Miss a Thing CGCA, TKN  (Saphira)

Saphira (AKA Missy to us)  is out of GCH Tekoa bred to AKC Gold GCH "Cholo", who was the #1 AKC Cane Corso and CCAA Dog of the Year in 2014.   Since a baby, she has always been smaller in size, but mighty in life force.  She takes her show career very seriously, yet is a loving and even goofy girl at home.  She goes to work daily with her owner, Neesha, and sits in the beauty shop chair watching TV.  (See what I mean?  Huge personality!)  We swear she has learned the English language with how she watches TV.  

In 2023, Neesha and Myron took Saphira to win the #1 spot as National Owner Handled Series cane croso.  (This is where she is exclusively shown by her owners and not paid professional handlers.) It is quite an achievement!

GCH RockHaven's Cease & Desist,


"Ceaster" is one of my favorite females!! *Impressive* is the best word for her.  She has Solomon's willingness to work with Anora's happy attitude. Literally NOTHING phases this girl.  She is unflappable & fearless-- takes it all in stride, and is "real" as real gets.  She loves to WORK, but it comes from a place of joy, rather than some dogs that develop that bite-work side from a nasty side of themselves.  She is appropriately protective.  She LOVES to be a show dog too! From day 1 she has had a great topline and balance.  She floats around the show ring with an attitude that just doesn't quit!  There is nothing this girl cannot do!

She is a proven producer and has been invaluable to the Rockhaven program.

GCH RockHaven's Party Never Ceases (Cece), CGC, TKN, TKI, VHM

We like to say that "Cece has more personality in her left paw, than all the other dogs in the house combined!"  CECE is the culmination of what I strive to produce at Rockhaven: a true "lightswitch" dog.  She is every bit as lovable, confident, obedient, hilarious, wiggly, and happy as a girl can be-- but when it comes time to protect, the switch flips, the "man-stopper" comes out, and her protective instinct is impressively ON-POINT.   Structurally, she is thick, strong, and well-boned. She has lovely angulation, which shows best in her effortless movement and rear drive. She also is producing herself in her offspring. Look for her Puppies in a show ring near you! 

Cece is co-owned with Courtney Johnson in Illinois (see Courtneys_corsos on IG) Follow her and see what all fun sports Cane Corsos can do!

GCHB RockHaven's Platinum Blonde Bombshell (Harlow), CGC

Harlow is Cece's sister out of Ceaster & Bane.  Harlow comes alive in the show ring with a big presence.  She finished her Grand Champion title at just 1 year old, and won Best of Opposite at the 2022 Cane Corso National Specialty!  Once she was trained, I was surprised to see more prey-drive in this sweet girl than I ever thought!  She is a great all-around dog who will make you love her! Soon we will be working on more obedience titles!

The Ladies of
Our Past & Foundation

Anora Corso Imperium

Anora is no longer in our breeding program, but contributed her excellent pedigree to the RockHaven line.  She is from Corso Imperium in Serbia and is a direct Bayron granddaughter.  She doesn't look much like her siblings or parents; she is a throwback to Conan on the bottom 1/2 of her pedigree. Her structure is nice and balanced, even if she isn't a large female.  She is OFA "Good" hips and "Clear" Elbows.  She is a sweet girl, and gets along wonderfully with other dogs and small animals and kids.  She really doesn't portray the strong stubborn corso temperament, and is quite the "easy keeper".  She LOVES a little den area and will be your best friend forever if you throw the Jolly Ball for her!  She also loves to run and play outside with the other dogs!  She is an EXCELLENT Momma, and is always so careful of the puppies.  She even helped feed Mona's babies in 2015!  (She is both Ceaster's & Manny's mother.)

Mad River's Mona Lisa di RockHaven

Mona retired after (3) litters, and was a huge part of RockHaven's foundation.  Mona was our worker of bunch and prided herself on being very smart, serious, and fabulous.   She loved to track and hold on to the bite pillow since a young girl. We put a tracking foundation on her at 5 months of age, and years later would still track an intruding varmint in the yard.  She was stable and yet aloof to strangers---wouldn't give them the time of day, but a total love-bug to close friends. A true cane corso. She had the best prey drive, determination, and unmatched loyalty.  She had very fluid movement, nice angulation and a beautiful head.
Mona had and produced puppies with very nice bone, and brought a nice height and length of body to the next generation.  She always taught the puppies great survival skills... even the pups in the house that were not hers, she viewed them as her own.
