It is an expert at looking for truffles

March 05, 2018

Originally, the Lagotto Romagnolo was bred to hunt waterfowl in the lakes of the Romagna region in Italy. However, at some point, the lakes dried out, the surrounding areas turning into marshes. The breed almost went extinct then but thankfully, they were endeared to the peasants who hunted truffles – rare, edible and delicious fungi that can cost a fortune – for a living and were taught to hunt truffles themselves. Today, Lagotto Romagnolo dogs remain excellent truffle hunters. If you happen to have some hidden in your backyard, your Lagotto Romagnolo will surely find it.
