From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Cane Pastore Biellese (Cane Di Oropa) is a mid-size yet powerful dog with plenty of stamina that is used in the western Alps of Italy to drive flocks of sheep and herds of cattle. The dogs descend from rural shepherd dogs which have been present in the Alps since antiquity. It is a working dog, very obedient and possessed of great athletic ability, which is indispensable since the dog has to run up and down steep mountain slopes all day, managing the flock. Many specimens are naturally bobtailed. The coat is short or medium-length and can be smooth or somewhat rough. The coat color is usually merle, merle with black and tan markings, black or different shades of brown. The eyes should be brown and blue eyes are considered a fault.
