The Maremma Sheepdog is a massive, noble, distinctive-looking dog with a bear-like head. The jaws are strong with a scissors bite. It has a black nose that often becomes slightly pink-brown with age. The ears are V-shaped, pointed and rather small.
Not easy to breed as they have irregular 'heat' cycles.
Friendly, determined, loyal, intelligent, dignified and alert
