About Sicilian Hound DogsAbout Sicilian Hound Dogs



Sicilian Hound Dogs, also known as Cirneco of Etna, are arnvery old breed. They date back to 1000 a.c. They are said to descend from thernAegyptian Pharaos’ dogs from the late dynasties and from dogs imported intornItaly by Phoenician traders. But later studies have shown that they are quiternlikely a native Sicilian breed. During the latest centuries they have been appliedrnfor hunting wild rabbits. On the whole they are not common outside Italy.

rnrnSicilian Hound Dogs are a medium-small sized dog ofrnelegant and slender shape with a short coat all over the body, although theyrnhave quite thin muscles and build, they are steady and strong.

He could be classifiedrnaccording to these three aptitudes: gentle and affectionate, his temperament isrnparticularly to be praised. He is a very reactive dog and can move easily onrnharsh and difficult land of volcanic origin. He is easily trained thanks to hisrntemperament and his class.

rnrnDuring hunting his highly developed smelling is bestrnshown.
