It is an ancient race to be carried in water, present since the sixteenth century, in the valleys of Comacchio and in the Ravenna lagoons and spread, starting from the nineteenth century, in the plains and hills of Romagna with the specific function of truffles.

Typical water dog, of medium-small size, mesomorphic, square; the general appearance is rustic, strong and well proportioned, it is possible to understand its functionality in the work. The expression is attentive, intelligent and lively. While working he exhibits passion and efficiency, exploiting the innate attitude to the search and the excellent smell.

The general conformation is that of a light mesomorph whose trunk is in the square, harmonious with respect to the format (heterometry) and disharmonic with respect to the profiles (alloidism).

The length of the snout is 2/10 lower than the length of the skull (ie the muzzle corresponds to about 44% of the total length of the head). The height of the rib is somewhat less than 50% of the height at the withers and may touch 44% of this height.
The function of Lagotto Romagnolo consists in the search for truffles, a work that takes place with passion and efficiency, exploiting its innate aptitude for research and its excellent sense of smell.
