They're very pretty dogs! I watched a TV show featuring this breed a couple of years ago... unfortunately I can't remember anything specific about them, aside from the fact that I thought they were really interesting. I do remember them being compared to Pharaoh Hounds a lot though... mostly about their different origins though I think, not temperament. Sorry I don't have anything constructive to add!

Wow!! That doesn't look like that small of a dog!!

I've never heard of them before, but they are GORGEOUS.

Let me know if you find out more info on them. I'm interested.

Well, weight wise.. Just like Ibizan Hounds are 24-29 inches but still weigh 45-60 pounds. I think Cirneco's are around 16-20 inches.

Laurelin, I think we're basically soul mates when it comes to breed choices.

I've looked at the Cirneco and the Pondenco Andaluz. The rarity of them just puts me off, but the size is perfect for the Cirneco. From the limited people who actually know about them, I have heard them be compared to the Pharoah in looks and temperment.

Podenco Andaluz
Has a nice little Podenco Andaluz .. and She has definitely made me much more interested in them.

Haha, I've thought the same thing. You do have fine taste in dogs.

Yeah I've read Aza Hound's things about the andaluz. Very cool site. I've been meaning to send them an email sometime actually (though about beezers...)

Back at you. I think the main difference is that I prefer Poms over Paps


Lol Me too. I've always admired her dogs, and love all the info on her website.. still haven't managed to send her a email.
