Bracco Italiano Puppies
Description: The Bracco Italiano is a large, tall canine that has striking coloring features. They can be brown and white or orange and white, with freckles all around. They are muscular with a thin face, and wrinkled hanging skin around the chin and neck. Their noses can be from brown to pink, and they have a smooth, fine coat of fur. The dog is squarely built, with a tapering tail (that is often docked at half its length) and a deep wide chest. Their ears are long and drooping, but perk up a bit when they are listening. Bracco Italianos were originally considered two separate breeds based on whether they were brown and white or orange and white, but are now considered the same breed. They are affectionate and easygoing, easily distinguishing work from play. They can be avid workers, and peaceful home pets.
Other Names: Italian Pointer, Italian Setter, Bracci (plural)
Type: Gun Dog
22 - 26.5 inches.
come in two distinctions: brown and white, or orange and white. The brown and
white was originally known as the Lombardy, and the orange and white known as
the Piedmont. Most commonly, the colors are white with orange, having chestnut
or amber patches on the face, ears, and base of tail.
These dogs are known to be affectionate, easygoing,
and intelligent. They can be stubborn and sensitive, but are athletic and powerful
in appearance. They are able to make strong distinctions between work and play,
and know when each is needed. The Bracco Italiano can be a strong worker in
the field, but rest easy with a docile temperament at home. Italian Pointers
are also obedient and loyal, doubling from easygoing pet to avid worker in an
instant. They are very much 'people dogs', as they love to be around them. They
enjoy a strong bond with their owners, and are more satisfied the closer the
are to them.
They excel at hunting skills and are known as pointers, but aren't particularly
alert unless it is time to work.
Care and Exercise:
Activity: Medium to high.
Bracci do like to work and play, but aren't extremely energetic like some other
Health Issues: Possible health concerns for the Bracco include entropion, hip dysplasia, kidney disease and bloat. Bloat is a health issue to most dogs, being the second largest killer of dogs other than cancer, but Bracco Italianos can be particularly susceptible to it because of their deep chests.
Life Span: 12 - 13 years.
