Children with dogs are always great subject matter in art. Many fine collections center around this theme. Since these are Italian in origin, I suspect that at least one of the dogs, the dog with the boy, is an Italian breed, perhaps Lazarotti (sp?). The dog with the little girl appears to be a terrier. Of course, dogs of most breeds looked different in the 19th Century than they do today.
