The Cretan hound and the Karpathian bound: two breeds compared. Historical, morphological and osteological considerations

Mauro Grano

The discovery on the island of Karpathos of old dog bones with compatible features with those
of a hunting dog, led me to believe that these remains could belong to the endemic Karpathian dog.
The morphological comparison between the Karpathian and the Cretan dogs, both specialized in
hare hunting, further highlighted that the Karpathos dog is an endemic breed of Karpathos Island
well differentiated from its Cretan congener.
