Anonymous asked:
Do Cirneceo dell Etna's bark very much?

1 Comment


The Cirneco dell’Etna is a very sweet, loyal and active breed of dog. However, they do actually make very good apartment dogs as long as they get enough exercise. This breed is quite independent and because of that, they do not mind if their owner has to leave for work every day. If they are trained and socialized well from an early age, they are not known for barking just for the sake of barking.
