This ancient breed - also referred to as Cane da Pastore Bergamasco, Italian Alpine Sheepdog, Alpine Sheepdog, and Northern Italian Sheepdog - is said to be one of several breeds of sheepdogs that traces its origins back to Persia.
The Bergamasco is a patient herding dog and dedicated family companion. His coat, which is made up of three types of hair combined to form dense, flat, felt-like mats that continue to grow throughout the dog's life, is a unique and striking characteristic of the breed.

Announcing the Arrival of a New Litter of Puppies - April 2011
Silver Pastori introduced the Pastore de Bergamasco Sheepdog to North America in 1995 with the World renowned dell Albera Bergamasco Sheepdog lineage. Silver Pastori, (Donna and Stephen DeFalcis) had North America's first registered litter of Bergamasco Sheepdogs in 1998 with Fauno & Gae dell Albera.
In order to continue the wonderfully acclaimed dell Albera Bergamasco Sheepdog lineage, we were happy to pass on their traits and characteristics to interested parties throughout Canada and the USA. In 1998, the first US Registered Bergamasco sired from Silver Pastori, Fauno and Gae dell Albera, was introduced to Canada. This was followed by a breeding partner from the dell Albera Kennel in Italy which went on to produce two litters. Many of the puppies were placed throughout the US and Canada. In 2005, Alp Angel Bergamascos, introduced Lothoria dell Albera Silver Pastori, Son of Lindoro and Orzia dell Albera. Lothario, a beautiful Gray Merle, enjoys life in Nova Scotia along with "Mezza", from Chique Bergamascos in England and "Aria" from Rimbalzo Bergamascos in Georgia.

If you are considering the adoption of a puppy of any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. While it is our goal on this website to only include listings of responsible and ethical breeders of purebred dogs, and there is certain criteria that must be met in order to be listed, we can only rely on the honesty of those submitting the request. Therefore, we cannot recommend, nor do we endorse or support any one of these listings. If you are looking to purchase a puppy, it is your responsibility to do your research in learning what to look for in a breeder. (For more information on selecting a breeder, see the articles on the main Breed/Breeders section: Information for the Potential Puppy/Dog Buyer.)
In addition to the Breeders listed here, the Breed Clubs generally include listings of member Breeders on their web sites and, if not, then a listing can usually be obtained either by e-mail or telephone. We do not randomly add Breeders to any listing. All Breeders listed have requested to be included either via a general link or paid advertising.
If a young pup is not an absolute requirement for you, then considering the adoption of a dog from a rescue organization or shelter is strongly recommended. Each individual breed section on the Canada's Guide to Dogs web site includes listings of Rescue Organizations specific to the breed. In addition, Breeders occasionally have young adults available and many also take in rescued dogs. To learn more about adopting a rescue dog, please see the Rescue Organizations & Shelters section of the web site. This section includes several articles and general information along with listings of shelters and rescue organizations that are not breed specific from across Canada.
