About Calabrese Sheperd DogsAbout Calabrese Sheperd Dogs



rnrnIts origins are very old and according to some experts,rnthis breed would be descended from imported dogs from Greek settlers in thernregion. It is described in various books and tales of the past two centuries.rnThis dog was mainly used to keep wolves away from the flock at grass, eitherrnsheep or goat. But since the wolf does not exist in those regions any longer,rnthese ancient dogs have had no reason to be applied; therefore their localrnpresence has disappeared rapidly.
rnrn 

rnrnIn 1972  this breed made its first appearance in thernexposition at Cosenza, Italy, not competing though; seven quite homogeneousrnexamples were presented on the occasion.


rnrnrnMedium withers height, 63-65 cm tall, their coat is longrnbut not very wavy, black shading to red in the hot season. The breed, however,rnis well-built with a solid powerful body and muscles. The bone structure is inrngood balance with the trunk.

rnrnrnExtraordinary brave fearless and daring, he is able tornface his antagonist, the wolf, without any difficulty. Loyal to his master, herncan look after and protect the livestock, being very reliable on work, carefulrnand precise.
