The Lagotto Romagnolo (also known as the Truffle Dog) is an ancient breed of water retrieving dogs from Italy used in the marshlands to hunt waterfowl. The Lagotto is thought to possibly be the ancestor to all the water dog breeds. When the marshlands dried up, at the end of the 19th century, the Lagotto was used to search and retrieve truffles (much prized and very valuable underground tubers). He is an excellent retriever with an exceptional sense of smell.
