From Bologna in Italy, they could be seen in paintings as far back as the 1200's as they were favourites of the nobility. They are sound little dogs with drop ears and a high tail carriage. The coat is distinctive as it is never trimmed or scissored.. It hangs in loose ringlets called flocking. This coat covers the head though is a little shorter on the foreface.
Colour is pure white. Pigment is black

In Ireland, they have their own rules and these are the same as the F.C.I. - CAC and CACIB can be won here. At the moment GB residents, must register with the Irish Kennel Club to compete.
F.C.I. registered breeds should be able to show there, when quarantine is lifted in 2000.
