About the Breed

The Lagotto Romagnolo, often referred to as the Lagotto, is an ancient breed with a rich history. Originating in the Romagna region of Italy, these dogs have been around for centuries and were primarily bred for their exceptional skills as water retrievers and truffle hunters.

The breed’s name “Lagotto” translates to “water dog” in Italian, highlighting their original purpose as skilled water retrievers. Their dense, curly coat and webbed paws make them natural swimmers, allowing them to excel in retrieving game from water bodies.

As the demand for truffles grew in Italy during the 19th and 20th centuries, the Lagotto’s exceptional sense of smell and determination led them to become highly sought-after truffle hunting companions. With their remarkable ability to locate and dig out truffles from the ground, they became invaluable to truffle hunters across the region.

However, by the mid-20th century, the popularity of the Lagotto declined, and the breed faced a significant decline in numbers. Thanks to the efforts of dedicated breed enthusiasts, the Lagotto Romagnolo was saved from extinction in the 1970s.

In recent years, the Lagotto’s intelligence, trainability, and hypoallergenic coat have gained recognition worldwide. Today, they are cherished as loyal family pets, skilled working dogs, and beloved companions. Their natural hunting instincts and keen sense of smell continue to make them exceptional truffle hunters, ensuring their continued relevance in the modern world.

The Lagotto’s unique blend of intelligence, versatility, and affectionate nature has made them a beloved breed among dog enthusiasts worldwide. Whether as a truffle-hunting partner or a cherished family member, the Lagotto Romagnolo continues to leave an indelible mark on the hearts of those who encounter this remarkable breed.
