That's how I always said it.

I pronounce Malinois as Mal-in-wahh. I never knew if it was correct or not, though.

You've clearly never seen the bajillion ads that outline that they have "**** Zoo" puppies for sale.

I can't pronounce most dog breeds, no matter how many people try to "teach me"

It's funny because there are gerbils in your signature, and at first glance I was trying to figure out if it meant that cats are an intermediate between dogs and gerbils.

Breed pronounciations aside, I hate it when people say what their dog IS, rather than the name. French Mastiff, Italian Mastiff, etc. Its a gdmn Dogue de Bordeaux. Its NOT HARD TO SAY. CANE CORSO. NOT HARD TO SAY. FIGURE. IT. OUT.

Also I didnt read to see if this was answered, but yes, its kah-nay corso. not cane like a candy cane.
