About me and the Cirneco dell'Etna

Ch Are But Not's Aloveable Adonis

"Tender golden dogs with eyes made of amber whispers mysteries about pyramids of ancient Egypt about vulcano Etna and promisses to be – if you’ll understand them – your faithfull companion and guardian angel for their life time – that’s Cirneco. They are independent and free just like Sicilian people are and you must simply love those distinctions if you want to accept, understand and love them as they deserve.

For allmost twenty years I’m not just in love in thise dogs I’m totally devoted to them."

"Barbka Novak"


My first Cirneco was born in January 2000 and he moved in with me in May that year. A lovely red turbo with huge ears. Ch Are But Not's Aloveable Adonis "Don" was my pride and joy, he thought me alot about the breed and put me in contact with cirneco fanciers all over the world.
