Rare Dog Breed Cirneco dell'Etna Being Shown at the Ekka This Week


Recommended Posts

http://www.kelb-tal-fenek.com/indexeng.htm  It closely resembles the Kelb tal-Fenek, the native dog & national dog of Malta, an island country close to Sicily. Seems to be a bit smaller.  The Kelb tal-Fenek means Rabbit Dog in Maltese (used for hunting).  When taken to Britain, the Kennel Club changed the name to Pharaoh Hound because they thought it looked like the dogs on ancient Egyptian tombs.  But the Kelb tal-Fenech is from Malta, not Egypt.
