The LRCA is the AKC parent club for the Lagotto Romagnolo. We work to preserve and protect the Lagotto Romagnolo and provide education, guidance and mentorship to all who are interested in the welfare and advancement of the breed.
The Lagotto Romagnolo is a small to medium sized dog with thick curly hair and a bright, happy demeanor. The breed originates from Italy and was first used to hunt waterfowl. Since the 19th century it has been specifically bred to hunt the underground tuber known as the truffle.
