Who is running the Database and Breeder Recommendations web site?
This website is a resource provided by the Lagotto Romagnolo Foundation, Inc. , a public charity, to further our mission through education: “Committed to protecting the health and longevity of the Lagotto Romagnolo through education and scientific research.”
- The database is open for submission to all Lagotti worldwide
- There is no membership and no fee.
- We are independent from any dog club and independent from any commercial interests.
- We are solely financing ourselves through donations and fundraising projects.
Why another database?
There are already health related databases for purebred dogs and the Lagotto Romagnolo benefits from the testing and information contained in those databases. However, there is no database that brings all the health information together in one location for ease of research and verification for potential puppy buyers and other breeders looking for potential matches for their breeding programs.
Our approach is to include information from the other public databases as well as the information that was submitted by dog owners. The voluntary database will be a valuable tool for the breed and the hope is that it will help to educate Lagotti enthusiasts about the importance of health testing.
Currently results for one dog may be located in multiple places online or by certificate given to the owner. Hip results can come from OFA, PennHip or Foreign registries and multiple testing locations offer BFJE and LSD tests.
This database also includes historical pedigree information that brings together data for multiple generations.
Please keep in mind that this database is a work in progress and unintentional inaccuracies may have occurred. If you feel that some of the data is incorrect, or have proof of different data, please contact us immediately.
