So you’re looking to adopt an Lagotto Romagnolo, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “Italians have a word for it: “carino.” In English, we say “cute.” In any language, this breed is totally endearing. The Lagotto Romagnolo (plural: Lagotti Romagnoli) is known for wooly curls that cover the body head to tail, crowned by a lavish beard, eyebrows, and whiskers. Lagotti stand under 20 inches and weigh no more than 35 pounds. But don’t be fooled by their teddy-bear looks—these are rugged workers of true strength and endurance. The breed’s trademark curls feel and behave more like human hair than fur. The Lagotto Romagnolo, Italy’s adorable “truffle dog,” sports a curly coat and lavish facial furnishings. Despite their plush-toy looks, Lagotti are durable workers of excellent nose who root out truffles, a dainty and pricey delicacy.”
An Lagotto Romagnolo typically ranges from 40.64cm to 48.26cm in height, and weighs from 10.886216880000001kg to 15.875732950000002kg.
