Based in Kings Sutton, near Banbury, Oxfordshire, Emma Towns is an experienced Bracco Italiano breeder. In the mid-2000s, she gave up breeding Braccos to concentrate on her German Shorthaired Pointers. Now once again, Emma is joining the ranks of the Bracco Italiano breeders.
With a pedigree bitch and stud dog, Emma expects to have her second litter of Bracco Italiano puppies for sale in the winter of 2015 or spring 2016.
The Bracco Italiano is classed as a rare breed and according to breeder Emma Towns, they are are one of the ‘hidden treasures’ of the dog world. The medium-sized Bracco comes under the HPR (Hunt, Point and Retrieve) category.
As its name suggests, the Bracco Italiano (plural – Bracchi Italiani) hails from Italy and is an ancient hunting breed which has been in evidence since the 4th or 5th Century. The Bracco ‘trot’ is one of the breed’s most distinctive features. Braccos are trained to trot when working. The Bracco Italiano trot is an extended gait and is unique to the breed.
Braccos are full of character and have an almost comical nature. They’re gentle and friendly and make exceptional pets. Good with children, they are reasonably easy to train and are, of course, first class HPR working dogs. Whether you want a gun dog, a family pet or a dog to show, look no further than a Bracco Italiano puppy.
Braccos come in two main colours, orange and chestnut, both with varying amounts of white or roaning. They are never solid colours.
