Small animal breeding
Another distinctiveness of the farm
is the breeding of small animals as pets. In 1969 the doctor
Torrisi established the "Cozzarelli's Breeding", recognized in 1973
from the F.C.I. (Federazione Cinologica
situated in Thuin, Belgium, which recognizes the official standards of the
different breeds suggested by the nation of origin. The Breeding was forerunner
of the selection of schnauzer black giant dogs, a breed of dogs with strong
in Germany after the 1900.
Originally the riesenschnauzer was used as watchdog
and after for defence. On the Italian rings, Cozzarelli had many recognitions,
and from the breeding came out champions all around Europe,
Germany. Thanks to the sacrifices, abnegation and passion of its founder,
the breed was diffused very quickly, even in the foot of the Etna, and many
lovers undertook the breeding; so that the
that cost years of hard work and sacrifices, did not go lost.
Another splendid dog, small but strong, that was breaded
by the Cozzarelli's breeding was the "Zwergschnauzer" black and
pepper-and-salt; that for its intelligence, courage, resistance and supervision
was nicknamed "fearless". Even if not with the same care given to
the schnauzer breeding, lot of passion
given for the
to many puppies Siberian Husky breed; the famous husky dogs that
even in the Etna, near the ski's school, have been admired by the lovers
of this breed . The Siberian Husky is considered a likeable companion for
its intelligence and docility, apart for being a hard worker.
In the farm, we can consider permanent even the many feline
colonies that succeeded during the years. Another peculiarity of the farm
is the breeding of dwarf rabbits, a pet
especially by kids.
