Honorable Mention & Memorials


We created this section of our website to showcase dogs that are part of the PrideNJoyz family that may not be an active part of our breeding program but, still contribute to the passion of the breed.  We always encourage our families to get out there and show the world the amazing qualities of the breed.  We have families that participate in rally, lure coursing, herding, conformation, obedience and many other fun events.  This is one of the ways we thought to say thank you.

Beer Can Bobby

Bobby raised the most money for Verona Street rescue and got his head on a beer can!  He's named after Bobby Bakala from The Sopranos (although we say Bobby "Barkala"). Like the character, he's not just big and strong, but also surprisingly gentle and kind. He LOVES meeting new people - especially young children - and other.   dogs. Bobby is a well-known and loved member of the Rochester community, melting hearts wherever he goes.  He definitely resembles his grandmom, Bob.

Bobby is from our Ugo (Avitus' Count Ugo Carnifex di Windypine) x Yatzi litter .

These are the ones who leave us in physical form but stay with us in our hearts and memories. 


So many pets touch our lives, here we would like to capture those who are part of our family in one way or another.

Ragu (Daitan x Glow)

Ragu lived most of his life here at PrideNJoyz. For health and temperament reasons he was not including in the future of our program.  Those in his small circle loved him dearly and laughed at his antics.  His floppy cropped ears just added to his personality.  Ragu loved playing with Yatzi and being with Scott more than anything.  He even obtained his trick dog title!  Unfortunately, we had to make a difficult decision to let him cross the rainbow bridge sooner than we would have liked.  


October 13, 2017


Belmont came to us unexpectedly.  He was a homeless dog living in Fairmount Park.  We helped rescue him (on behalf of Cane Corso Rescue) and fostered him while he looked for a home.  We ended up deciding he was already home with us.  He enjoyed 9 years with us.

Lola  (Fuoco x Glow)

Lola was loved by her family in Boston.  She had her quirky side and was a bit too spoiled at times.  While we didn't see her much, we did get to visit her.  She will always be our Lola Pinkypants.  Unfortunately, we lost her suddenly after a routine procedure.  


November 19, 2017

Aria  (Rambo x Sapphire)

Aria is the mother to one of our litters.  Aria lived in New Jersey with her family and her son, Guiseppe.  She was a sweet girl, who loved her mom dearly.  We lost Aria suddenly from a ruptured tumor.  She reminded us so much of her mom, Sapphire.

Brinks  (Saggio x Aria)

Brinks was amazing.  He was beautiful inside and out.  You couldn't help but fall in love with him via social media or in person. Bone cancer took him too soon from us. Thankfully, his mom took wonderful photos for us to cherish forever.  He will never be forgotten.

Sapphire (Tuff x Jara)

Sapphire was the dog that started PrideNJoyz.  She was feisty and sassy and stubborn.  She taught us so much about dogs and the Cane Corso breed.  We lost Sapphire to mammary cancer in the middle of her life and miss her every day.
