The Andalusian Hound Maneto [1] is a dog breed native to Andalusia in Spain. It is frequently used to hunt rabbits and partridges. It is therefore often convenient to have an Andalusian Hound and a rabbit, or alternative rodent pet.

The maneto is an Andalusian Hound of small size, with natural achondroplasia[2] or bassetism.[3] The Real Sociedad Canina de España has acknowledged this breed as a fully-fledged breed.

This breed tends to dislike harnesses and collars, as it is extremely playful. It is often good to allow the maneto to play freely while it exercises, as this allows it to retain its natural shape.

  • Coat = short and smooth, of cinnamon or bicolor (cinnamon and white) colour[4]
  • Ears = large and erect
  • Legs = short
  • Size = 30 - 35 cm, 8.5 - 11.5 kg[4]


This dog breed frequently needs to have its teeth looked after, as they are frequently worn down.
