Italian short-haired Segugio

The Italian short-haired Segugio it is a dog with a stable temperament, of a soft but not very outgoing expression.

History

The Italian hound It, According to the vast majority of authors, a dog with very ancient origins. It is believed, in fact, descended from hunting dogs that lived from ancient Egypt, they reached the shores of the Mediterranean Sea, and therefore also to Italy, thanks to the Phoenician merchants. Many Egyptian drawings dating from the time of the pharaohs show the presence of dogs very similar to the current one Italian hound.

His best period is the Renaissance, when its level was improved and its great diffusion began. The race then underwent a slow and inexorable decline until, from the beginning of the 20th century, the Italian hound it became very popular again.

The modern history of Italian hound started on 1920, year in which the Technical Committee of the Society of Hound Hobbyists drew up the first breed standard that a few years later, in 1929 to be exact, was approved by the Italian Kennel Club. At that time there was only one standard that unified the Italian Rough-Haired Hound and to the “Italian short-haired Segugio“; in 1976 came the prohibition of mating between the two varieties; then, in 1989, the ENCI (Ente Nazionale della Cinofilia Italiana) passed two different standards, standards that were later also recognized by the FCI which classified them in the group 6, among hound-type dogs, and related breeds.

The Italian short-haired Segugio probably has the same origins as the “Italian Rough-Haired Hound“; in fact, both varieties of hounds have always coexisted in almost the entire peninsula.

If he is well-maintained and has a breed-appropriate lifestyle, the Italian short-haired Segugio You can live up 12 or 13 years. This is because this type of dog is not predisposed to particular diseases derived from its breed.

Those who love them say that…

“I did not choose to live with a “Hound”, I mean it was not a choice out of passion for this breed… it happened to me! It turns out that I share my life with a “Hound”. It was and still is the most amazing experience of my life. Live with a “Hound” means learning to have time, a lot of time to walk “only” exploring life, silent. It is learning that you can stay in the forest for hours without doing anything other than living and discovering the forest. And that's it. The “Hound” teaches you not to pay attention to appearances, to pursue your passions tenaciously while those who look at you think you are just sniffing. He is an extremely sensitive partner but at the same time proud and independent. Living with Chloe is an adventure, made of constant and subtle balances between sharing and the search for individuality, the desire for freedom and the need to feel close to each other, is to learn every day to discover and respect oneself”.

The spread of Schiller Hound is regular in your country of origin, but very small abroad.

Content

History

The Schiller Hound It is a working breed that has existed in Sweden since the Middle Ages. But, the breed was not really established and recognized until 1952. This recognition is due in large part to a breeder, Per Schiller, who gave the breed its name.

In 1886, at the first Swedish dog show, they were shown 189 hounds. Among them were Tamburini and Ralla I, a brother and sister belonging to Per Schiller. They were descended from the famous hounds of the Kaflas estate. These dogs probably came from southern Germany: rather small, fawn in color with black fur and slight white markings.

The Schiller Hound they were then based on the crossing of Swiss dogs, German and Austrian, as well as in British hunting dogs, especially the Harriers, to produce a fast and light breed that quickly acquired its type. curiously, Per Schiller worked alongside a Swedish doctor named Adolf Hamilton, and also led to the development of a similar dog named Hamilton Hound, that can be differentiated from Schiller Hound for its tricolor coat.

Still very rare outside his native country, the Schiller Hound was recognized by the Swedish Kennel Club in 1907.

The Schiller Hound has been traditionally used as a sniffing dog, although some describe it as a hunting dog. The breed is known for both its speed and superior olfactory ability; able to quickly track its prey and then howl loudly when its master approaches, alerting of its position. It is a hardy dog ​​that can tolerate the cold Swedish winters well.. Often, they work individually rather than in a pack and typically hunt rabbits and foxes. Even today, many dogs still work as hunters, although they are equally good household pets.
