Segugio Italianos descended from Egyptian hounds, but eventually migrated to Italy, a country with hot summers and cool winters. The exact origins of the Segugio Italiano are unknown, though they are thought to date back to ancient times. Segugio Italianos were originally used for hunting wild boar. They were capable of tracking a scent, but also capturing and killing their prey. Segugio Italianos worked both alone and in packs, and were able to hunt both large and small animals. A keen sense of smell and powerful legs made Segugio Italianos excellent hunters.

Little consideration was given to dog food in the past so it's probable that Segugio Italianos received nourishment through a diet of scraps and leftovers. Today, Segugio Italianos are used as family companions and small game hunting dogs. Though they came close to extinction after the decline of wild boar, they are now one of the most popular dogs in Italy. Segugio Italianos also go by the name "Segit". Most Segugio Italianos maintain moderate levels of exercise, but not as much as dogs of the past. Food options today for Segugio Italianos are plentiful, and are available in many different formulas. Most Segugio Italianos have not maintained the same level of activity as in the past, so they require less calories to function.
