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. Their square body is lightly built and covered in fine hair.

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