VIRTUAL BREED DATABASE
Welcome to the virtual database of Maremma Sheepdog !
Maremmano-Abruzzese Shepard is Italian working breed. Its history counting more than 2000 years. In any book, written by Italian authors-breeders about Maremmano-Abruzzese there is information about the history of the breed, its characteristics, exterior etc. You can find a lot of illustrations and pictures of famous and legendary dogs in these books. It is a great pleasure for the owner to see a picture of a Champion in the book and to find him in the Pedigree of his bellowed dog.
The history of our roots has a great meaning. This is the basis of the breeding. It is very important to keep the precious information when there is a real risk to lose it. Now we can recreate valuable and nearly lost information and bring the new one about new lines in breeding etc. Our beloved Maremmano-Abruzzese dogs deserve to be in the virtual catalogue of the breed. Maybe someone will find your dog as the partner for mating his own, or maybe wants to have a look at brothers and sisters of his dog, or to see the pictures of the ancestors. This kind of information is really valuable for the breeders. Here you can see the Pedigree, the blood lines, to evaluate the inbreeding possibilities, to combine dogs couple, to look at the previous puppies.
Let us all together spend some little time to fill in the catalogue and it is truly possible that exactly your information will help somebody. Everything is in your hands!
