Cirneco dell etna black and white

Cirneco Dell'Etna

This Italian breed is very well suited to working in difficult terrain, especially on the trail of wild boars. Very temperamental, yet gentle and affectionate.

About the Cirneco Dell'Etna

These primitive-type dogs of elegant, slender lines and medium size are robust and resistant and not at all cumbersome. The square body, lightly built, is covered in fine hair.

This is a rare breed, which is mainly found in its native region. The standard was recognised by the F.C.I. in 1989.
