Prototype of the race pu to be considered cucciolo a male (Zorro) NATO in the 1966 from the crossing of shepherdesses German with one of last lupe wild the coming from ones from the Appennino of the Lazio high. To leave from the fortunate crossing the intermediate characteristics cosicch today in the race were fixed coexist harmonically the qualit domestic of the dog beside the advanced physical and behavioural characteristics of the lupo.

  Raised nonprofit from the ETLI (Agency for the Protection of the Italian Lupo), to leave from 1988 the race, on presidential decree, protect from one normative of State that, for reasons of genetic conservation, of it prohibits the commercialization and the reproduction to outside of the same Agency.

Used in number consisting for aid tasks from the Cinofilo Group of the State Forestry Corps, guard of the body of the famous official of the "witness of leather" Last , engaged with happening in the drug search and I exploded to you, the lupo Italian risks the extinction for the absolute lack to deep. In fact to the decree presidential that of it it has prohibited the sale is not follows concrete economic provisions and the survival of the race, than today it counts approximately 650 exemplary, entrusted nearly exclusively to private financings.

From some years this difficolt to support the breeding of the lupo Italian has lead the ETLI to second yield always devout often exemplary in free confidence (an official protocol) near agencies, associations or persons who engage themselves to use them for scopes of public interest (like in tasks of aid under avalanches or ruins, search of dispersed persons, antibracconaggio, pet therapy, sport, etc).

FROM MY EXPERIENCE. - The Sig.ra Maura Bocci (PG))
Draft of a dog intelligent, prudent and balanced, given over unconditioned the landladies-capobranco, beside which one moves like a shadow. Lively and docile, in affectionate and expert hands from he turns out to you exceptional in whichever shape of training. Instead, if neglected and left to if same (if above all private of affective ties) pu happening that the wild side of the hybrid-lupo has in he the windward. It is said of he that "it obeys for conviction, not for servilismo". I share this affirmation.

Agile, powerful, fast and untiring, a dog that needs much movement. The innata elegance of its race and its acrobatics to render one walk in libert a true show of the nature.
