A ONE OF A KIND GENTLEMAN
“Paolo is an unbelievable pup! He looks you in the eye and says “what’s the plan for the day?” He loves people and greets everyone when they come to the door or into the yard. If you rub his ears you have a friend for life. He is extremely fast and strong. He loves to go running, mountain biking and hiking. He loves being outside (unless it is too cold in which case he looks at you through the window and shivers) You know he is excited when he chatters his teeth and jumps 5 feet straight up with front paws dancing. He is constantly checking in with you to make sure all is good before he lays down or tries to sneak up on the couch. He is a true companion who loves his family and friends unconditionally.”
WHAT IS A “BRACCO ITALIANO”
FIRST OF ALL..THEY ARE ONE OF THE CUTEST PUPPIES KNOWN TO MAN!
- The Bracco Italiano is and upland bird dog and is a rare breed in the US but is becoming more popular because they are an amazing hunting dog but also just as amazing and loyal family dog.
- With his long ears, droopy lips, and soulful expression, the Bracco Italiano has a distinctive look. He’s believed to be an ancient breed, dating back to the fourth or fifth century B.C
- Train this intelligent dog with gentleness and consistency and he’ll always aim to please, but sharp corrections will cause him to stop trying.
- The Bracco’s short, dense, shiny coat can be white; white with orange or dark amber markings; white with chestnut markings; white with speckled pale orange markings; or white with roan-chestnut markings.
- The Bracco is also the only air-scenting hunting breed, although he may also trail game. It is very important for trainers to recognize that his way is different than most bird dogs – in the experienced dog’s initial gallop across a field, he may not seem to take the time to be checking for birds, but the truth is, with a couple of back-and-forths, he’s already checked out the field. If birds are there, he’ll let you know. SO COOL!
