The Vucciriscu is a large molossor dog breed that originated in Sicily, Italy. Though similar to Cane Corso, this breed is smaller and not as heavy and have slightly different facial and head features. This agile and strong dog is capable of great speeds. The name Vucciriscu is derived from the term Vucceria, which means ?butcher shop.? These animals were used as guardians of butchshops, and they retain their remarkable guarding instincts. Presently, this breed is mostly used as watch/guard dogs and flock guardians.

This robust and athletic dog stands about 24 inches and comes in short, smooth coat that can be red or brindle. Ears are not cropped but tail is docked. Very little information is available about this very rare breed.

This breed is NOT recognized by AKC.
