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.
