Napoleon's Dog 2

A book called Pauline Borghese by Antonio Spinosa published in French by Tallandier in 1986 says Napoleon's dog on Elba was called Lauro.

"When Napoleon was on St. Helena he had a black and white dog called 'Sambo' - it had its ears cut off, in the Chinese style, and looked more like a seal. After Napoleon's death in May 1821 the dog was taken back to Europe by Countess Bertrand and her children."
