According to the www.braccousa.com website, the original dogs of centuries ago were believed to have been a cross between "either a Segugio Italiano (a coursing hound), or sighthounds brought to Italy by Phoenician traders from Egypt, bred to the Asiatic Mastiff, or Molossus." And no, I have no idea what any of those dogs look like, but my guess is they were hound-like animals, because Bracco Italianos certainly have some hound blood in them somewhere.
