Allentown Pennsylvania Dog Kennel
To be perfectly honest our Allentown Pennsylvania dogdoesn't always get new or exotic breeds but I like to keep up on all the breeds from around the world whenever I have the time. Believe me when I tell you that the variety is fantastic. There is this dog call the Bracco Italiano that is wonderful. While the Perdiguero Navarro and Perdiguero de Burgos are older pointing breeds, probably no breed of pointer more closely resembles the scenthound ancestors of the gun , than the Bracco Italiano, or Italian Pointer. This dog has been around since the times of the Renaissance. The Bracco Italiano is a very fine dog. It is a descendent of the Perdiguero de Burgos and also, probably the smooth-haired Segugio Italiano, Italy's oldest scenthound breed. This dog is a much faster and more agile than one would think by looking at it. Its scenting ability is superb and it is able to point, retrieve, and track. It is very serious in the field with a strong commitment to what it is doing and its incredible power enables it to cover harsh mountainous terrain. It is also easy to train and very calm in the home. It is a very sweet and sensitive dog that loves to have fun and truly enjoys the company of children. It can be a little bit stubborn, because of its scenthound influence, but makes up for this in the results of the hunt. This breed declined drastically in the early part of this century but was rediscovered and is gaining popularity rapidly both in Italy and elsewhere in Europe. Hunters appreciate this dog, which, one might say, combines the best qualities of both the scenthounds and the gun .
