History

The Bracco Italiano (Bracco or Italian pointer) It is a breed of dog native of North Italy. There were two varieties, an of the Piedmont and another of Lombardy. Today, the race is one only, and the official standard was published in 1949 for the S.A.B.I. (Società Amatori Bracco Italiano) in Lodi, Lombardy.

As historical information is important to remember the work done by the leading breeder and international judge of dogs, Knight and Commander Paolo Ciceri, who before World War II (and subsequently to it) He made a thorough job with the race to maintain the standard of this. Paolo Ciceri, He was President and one of the founders of S.A.B.I and considered the father of the Italian Braco. Many books were written by this man and until his death, His kennel dogs, “Dei Ronchi”, they were considered the standard of the breed. Some of them were even introduced to America by his son Giancarlo Ciceri.

Braco Italian originated in Italy, and there are writings on race dating back to the 4th centuries and V before Christ. It is believed that it is a cross between an Italian hound and an Asian Mastiff. Others claim that the breed can be traced back to the Bloodhound.

There were two variants of the race. The first originated in Piedmont, and for that reason known as the Piedmont Braco. The other originated in Lombardy, and it was known as the Braco in Lombardy:

  • The Braco of Piedmont was lighter in body, probably due to the mountainous terrain there, the color of the coat is smooth.
  • The Braco in Lombardy was dark and thicker body. He settled well in the middle ages. The Braco flourished during the Renaissance and was raised by the Medici and Gonzaga families.

They were dogs sought after by the aristocracy, and were used to hunt birds. Late 19th century and early 20th century the breed nearly became extinct. Lately, has done everything possible to keep the race, above all by the combined efforts of Italian Ferdinando Delor, Ferrabouc breeder, and the work developed by Paolo Ciceri during the first and second world war.

Today, It is a rare dog in his native country and is virtually unknown in other countries.

Mau is an Egyptian word for "cat", and all existing races, the mau is probably which bears more resemblance to domestic cats of ancient Egypt. This appearance is not due to recreation detailed with various races or varieties, but to the descendants of the race of Egyptian Street cats that may have lived in the same region and have been essentially equal for millennia.

If the appearance of this variety is taken as the date of the race, It is by far the oldest in the world. More recently, the mau as breed of pedigree is the creation of Nathalie Troubetskoy, exiled Russian living in Italy since the second world war, it imported cats of Cairo. Reproduced them and showed the resulting kittens in Europe, and in United States recorded, where is installed in 1956. The full recognition of the breed took another twenty years, and much more in Great Britain, where was delayed because of the confusion with the atigrados spotted cats similarc: formerly called maits and were part of the oriental short hair, and by its similarity to the Ocicat.

The mau is very similar to the cats represented in walls and Egyptian scrolls, with a long body, adético and patches that do not follow any discernible pattern. Also has a 'belly flap' of skin on the back of the abdomen, an unusual feature that gives him great mobility and considers that it contributes to the incredible acceleration of the mau.

There is the only other race who has this tab is the American keuda.
Eyes differ from the old images, It shows close eyes, wild look; the mau are wide, rounded and concerned look. Breeders have worked to give the mau docile temperament worth cats today, but it remains independent, Smart and a fierce Hunter. If deprived of entertainment or freedom you can devote to pursue and destroy whatever.
