This Sicilian rabbit hunter has been on the island for at least 2,500 years, featuring on hundreds of Sicilian coins in that time. The Cirneco is very similar to the larger Pharaoh Hound, from the neighbouring island of Malta.
Pointy dog' fans with tall fences. Not only is this a keen runner, but also an accomplished climber!
Bunny lovers. Don't be surprised if the Cirneco brings back rabbits or squirrels on walks.
A bit smaller than a Labrador.
Medium (About an hour)
Doesn't have to be a solid hour, you can give them lots of short walks.
Dogs that you mainly just need to polish! But be warned - short haired dogs moult all the time!
All canines drop some hair, think of it as dog glitter!
