From the 1880s until 1942, Italian Somalia was a colony under Italian control.
The Italian Greyhound (Italian: Piccolo levriero Italiano) is an Italian breed of small sighthound. It may also be called the Italian Sighthound.
This dog has long been popular with nobility and royalty. Among those believed to have kept it are Frederick II, Duke of Swabia; members of the D'Este, Medici and Visconti families; the French kings Louis XI, Charles VIII, Charles IX, Louis XIII and Louis XIV; Frederick the Great of Prussia, Anne of Denmark; Catherine the Great and Queen Victoria.
The breed has often been represented in paintings, notably by Giotto, Sassetta and Tiepolo.
The Italian Greyhound is the smallest of the sighthounds. It weighs no more than 5 kg (11 lb) and stands 32 to 38 cm (13 to 15 in) at the withers. It is in the Sighthound Group of the Fédération Cynologique Internationale, but in the Toy Group of the American Kennel Club and The Kennel Club (UK).
It is deep in the chest, with a tucked-up abdomen, long slender legs and a long neck that tapers down to a small head. The head is long and pointed. The gait should be high-stepping and well-sprung, with good forward extension in the trot, and a fast gallop.
All colours are accepted except brindle or black and tan. Recognised coat colours include black, seal, blue, fawn, and red; In Europe, white markings are accepted on the chest and feet only.
