Pastore maremmano abruzzese Kennel
" Della muta del Vergaro "
di Valter Grossi
The kennel “Della Muta Del Vergaro” was born thanks to the dedication and passion of Valter Grossi, a Company executive who for more than 20 years now has been spending his leisure time between his kennel and wild fauna studies.
After some experience made with primitive races like the Siberian husky, Valter Grossi has chosen the maremmanno-abruzzese right for its traditional use in rural mountainous areas, where its proud and independent character as well as its reliability are highly appreciated.
The kennel, that right from the start has been using the best Abruzzo bloodlines, is driven by principles that combine animals’ wellbeing with the preservation of this race’s natural attitudes. That’s the reason why the dogs live outside, in large green areas, with lots of opportunities to bond with the man and with other dogs.
The objective of the selection is to reach excellent morphological features as well as perfect psycho-physical equilibrium. The choice to use from the start the rustic and actually working dogs from the Abruzzo allows the kennel to guarantee the reliable and stable character that unfortunately in the years past has come to oblivion due to inadequate breeding.
In order to put under judgement of experts the continuous work of selection, the dogs take part in numerous national and international expositions and special race-dedicated gatherings in Italy and abroad.
Moreover, the stallions and the bitches take part in morpho-character tests carried out by the Circolo del Pastore Maremmano Abruzzese and have the hips and elbows x-rayed for dysplasia
