Italian Bred by Monica Benelli

Cannoli was the second Lagotto in USA to earn an AKC Silver Grand Championship.  Among his many  accomplishments, Cannoli has earned numerous working titles as well - proving his purpose as a most versatile Lagotto Romagnolo.   "At the end of the day," there is nothing Canolli loves more than to curl up in his human's lap for some good tender loving care. 

We can't say enough about how special this boy is...

We could not be more proud of our foundation dam.  At just 17 months old, this girl was awarded her Grand Championship!   Like her daddy, Jacques, she just loves to show!  And she's giving her "brothers" a run in Scentwork.  We are excited to see what great things this "little cookie" will accomplish!

Following in her parents paw prints, Lovey won her first major at her first show from the 6-9 month puppy class.  We are thrilled to announce that Lovey earned her AKC Champion title, our first "bred-by" to do so! 

This girl is all spunk, and she was a wonderful mother to her first litter in Spring of 2023!
