Cirneco Dell Etna

 Almost identical to the Pharaoh Hound, the Cirneco dell'Etna has a similar history as well. The Cirneco dell'Etna, or Sicilian Hound, is a rare dog not commonly seen out of its native island, Sicily. They are smaller in size, with very short, glossy and harsh to the touch fur. They are thinly wired, with evenly distributed muscles, such as a greyhound. One of the ancient sight hounds, Cirneco dell'Etnas are excellent at catching their prey. They can sneak up to small animals, even birds, in total silence and snatch them from their hiding place. They were once used to hunt rabbit and other small game. They have excellent noses and almond-shaped, deep set eyes. Their eyes range from yellow to hazel brown color. Their appearance is one of wisdom and understanding, with high pointing erect ears and a thin face. Cirneco dell'Etnas will adapt to companion if needed, but does not readily adapt to other dogs and children. Cirneco dell'Etnas will sleep outdoors contentedly, keeping watch for you throughout the night.
