Notes
 

The Bergamasco is a breed of dog with its origins in the Italian Alps, where it was originally used as a herding dog.

Appearance

The breed's most distinctive feature is the unusual matted coat which is a normal and healthy characteristic of the breed. Bergamascos are born with short, smooth fur, which slowly develops the characteristic mats as the dog grows. In adulthood the mats may reach as low as the dog's paws.
