Lagotto Romagnolo, Ontario, Canada

We are located just an hour east of Toronto, Ontario. Our dogs live with us on our 100 acre farm, enjoying the wide outdoors with lots of opportunity to run and learn.This wonderful dog is an ancient breed that originated in the Romagna area of Italy and was originally a water retriever, but has more recently been trained to find truffles. They also make an excellent family dog, with a non shedding coat and low allergen level.

Our mission is to raise healthy, high quality Lagotto Romagnolo to make excellent pets and working dogs.

Here is a link to an explanation of the breed colours with images:

I discovered this breed by chance, and having loved the curly coated breeds for all my life I decided to do some research. After visiting wonderful breeders in Australia, Italy and the United States, I made up my mind it was the breed to add to my life.

This is FERMA BAROANEI EDITA (known as Dita) from Romania. Brown Roan.

Born 3rd of December 2015.
