About Sicilian Hound DogsAbout Sicilian Hound Dogs



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

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

Sicilian Hound Dogs are considered more than a hunting dog but also a good watchdog and a pleasant company dog. He could be classified according to these three aptitudes: gentle and affectionate, his temperament is particularly to be praised. He is a very reactive dog and can move easily on harsh and difficult land of volcanic origin. He is easily trained thanks to his temperament and his class.

During hunting his highly developed smelling is best shown.

Notice: there are two similar breeds, the ‘Pharaon Hound’ and the ‘Podenco Ibicenco.
