It is often held that this Sicilian breed is descended from ancient breeds of hunting dogs that were brought to the island by the Phoenicians from the Nile Valley in the time of the Pharaohs. But more recent studies hypothesize that it is actually a native breed from the vicinity of Mount 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.
