HISTORY

This  dog  was  highly-valued  in  rural  Mallorca during  the  last  century.  In  1990  the  “Mallorcan Ratting Dog” club was born, undertaking the task of  selecting  and  reviving  this  native  Mallorcan race, yielding results in 2002 when the race was recognised as such by the Ministry of Agriculture and Fishing.

According to a series of textual evidence, this race has 160 years of history that links it to two very old breeds of dog: those of Pharaonic origin and terriers. Today, this race is very popular on our islands.
