Dog Breed's Main Info
The Breed's History:
The Lagotto is an ancient breed of water retriever from the lowlands of Comacchio and marshlands of Ravenna, Italy. All modern water retrieving dog breeds are believed to have descended in part from the Lagotto Ramagnolo.
Andrea Mantegna in the 1474 work titled "The Meeting" depicts a small dog in the lower left corner that is the perfect image of today's Lagotto.
By the 1970s, however, interest in the dogs had waned, and the breed might well have disappeared. Fortunately, Italian dog lovers took steps to preserve them. In 1988, they founded the Club Italiano Lagotto.
Since then, interest in the breed has spread to many other countries, including Australia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the United States. In the U.S., the Lagotto Romagnolo Club of America represents the breed.
The American Kennel Club began registering the breed with its Foundation Stock Service in 2001 and recognized the Lagotto as a member of the Sporting Group in July 2015.
