#9 At the same time, behind the “Italian dogs”, as they were originally called by the British, they noticed an amazing ability almost tirelessly to run long distances, not inferior in speed to horse-drawn carriages.

The swift-footed dogs were made guards for valuable "movable property" on city trips and long journeys - a kind of prototype of modern car alarms.
