History The Bracco Italiano is an ancient breed that originated in Italy. There are theories stating that it is a cross between the Asiatic Mastiff and the Segugio Italiano. This breed has two variations, the first of which originated in Piedmont and is thus called as the Piedmontese Pointer. The other variation originated in Lombardy, which gives it the name Lombard Pointer.
During the Renaissance, these dogs were abundant in number and they were used by the aristocracy for hunting. During the late 1800s and early 1900s, though, dogs of this breed decreased in number, putting them on the brink of extinction. Fortunately, Ferdinando Delor de Ferrabouc, an Italian breeder, led efforts to revive the breed. These dogs first came to England during 1988, but are still relatively unknown in America.
Appearance These dogs are powerful and athletic-looking. They have square builds, which means that their height at the withers is equivalent to the length of their bodies. They have large, oval-shaped eyes that come in colors of brown or dark ochre. They have spongy, large noses, deep muzzles, and ears that are set level with their eyes. Their coats are short, glossy, and dense.
