The Lagotto Romagnolo's Origins and History Source: Club Italiano Lagotto and Furry Critter Network website Country/Region of Origin: Italy Original purpose: water dog Name: Romagna was a place in Italy where the breed was locally known as "Can Lagot" which means "water dog" or better yet "wetland hunting dog with crimpled, curly coat"; better known as Romagna Water Dog Historical notes: There were already canines that bear resemblance to the Lagotto Romagno dogs during the Etruscan civilization, well before the rise of the Roman Empire. They were originally meant to be for the marshlands but as those marshes were reclaimed, many soon specialized in truffle hunting. Despite cross-breeding, there were still enough pure-bloods left to ensure that the breed would stabilize in the 20th century.
