The Italian hound It, According to the vast majority of authors, a dog with very ancient origins.

“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”.
