In their native Italy, they have always been prized for their herding abilities, but they are also known for being kind and gentle family dogs and companions. Maremmanos are noble, proud dogs who enjoy being part of the family and participating in everything that happens around them. This is why they have found their way into the hearts and homes of many people since they first appeared in the UK. However, if you want to share your home with a Maremmano, you need to register your interest with breeders as these handsome dogs are quite rare.
