As its name suggests, Lagotto Romagnolo is a dog breed originating from the Romagna region in Italy. Apart from being excellent hunters for truffles, Lagotto Romagnolos are very gentle and affectionate dogs. Since they do not shed, they fall into the category of the so-called “hypoallergenic” breeds, and are hence very suitable for children and family life. In some countries they are used as police tracker dogs, therapeutic dogs, or as guide dogs for blind people.
According to the historical word of mouth, this Italian breed is the ancestor of the Labrador, Poodle and Portuguese water dog breeds.
