A hilarious video of a dog discovering the joys of sticking his head through the sunroof of his owner’s car has gone viral on TikTok with over 1.2 million views.
In the video Boston, the Cane Corso can be seen sticking his head out of the canopy while his owner laughs and says, “He discovered the canopy… Jesus, help me, are you kidding?”
One user commented, “He’s so excited to be able to look after his little homans.”
“I can only imagine what this looks like from the outside,” mused another.
What is a Cane Corso?
“Intelligent, trainable, and of a noble demeanor, the assertive and confident Cane Corse is an unparalleled protector,” says the American Kennel Club. They can be nearly 28 inches tall and often weigh in excess of 100 pounds, making them intimidating looking dogs. They can also be fiercely loyal to their owners, but also assertive and willful. Still, according to the AKC, “they can end up owning an ignorant owner.

The Cane Corso was recognized as a breed by the AKC in 2010. In an article on their website, the Cane Corso Association of America (CCAA) said that “the Cane Corso is not the perfect breed for everyone.”
It is not recommended to buy a Cane Corso if you are simply drawn to its unique appearance. “The breed of a dog doesn’t make you more manly! If you want a dog because you think it looks tough or thinks it makes you look strong, that’s not why you should buy a Cane Corso.” It has also been noted that the large breed needs plenty of mental stimulation in addition to regular exercise and exercise.

“Whether their job is greeting customers in a store, herding animals on a farm, or helping you look after your children on a daily basis, this breed has something to do,” the CCAA said. “You CANNOT send them to some kind of doggy daycare and expect them to have their mental stimulation needs met there. In addition, you can not leave the dog in the garden 8-10 hours a day while you go to work. If they don’t have their needs for mental stimulation met, they will find other ways to entertain themselves. This can manifest itself in fence fighting with a neighbor’s dog, digging holes, and chewing on things they shouldn’t be doing.
Last year, a video of a Cane Corso protecting a toddler from an “attack” shared the internet. In another clip, the TikTok audience was ecstatic when a Cane Corso missed its owner.
