Lagotto Romagnolo

Lagotto Romagnolos are an Italian breed of dog from the Romagna region of Italy. Sporting curly hair and charming faces, they were originally bred as hunting dogs during the Medieval Period; however, today they are mostly kept as pets and as a different kind of hunting dog—Lagotto Romagnolos are expert truffle dogs. Their wonderful sense of smell makes them a great candidate for finding and unearthing truffles, rare and expensive mushrooms that are considered culinary delicacies.

Through Blue’s mitochondrial DNA we can trace his mother’s ancestry back to where dogs and people first became friends. This map helps you visualize the routes that his ancestors took to your home. Their story is described below the map.

A1d

Blue’s Haplogroup

This female lineage can be traced back about 15,000 years to some of the original Central Asian wolves that were domesticated into modern dogs. The early females that represent this lineage were likely taken into Eurasia, where they spread rapidly. As a result, many modern breed and village dogs from the Americas, Africa, through Asia and down into Oceania belong to this group! This widespread lineage is not limited to a select few breeds, but the majority of Rottweilers, Afghan Hounds and Wirehaired Pointing Griffons belong to it. It is also the most common female lineage among Papillons, Samoyeds and Jack Russell Terriers. Considering its occurrence in breeds as diverse as Afghan Hounds and Samoyeds, some of this is likely ancient variation. But because of its presence in many modern European breeds, much of its diversity likely can be attributed to much more recent breeding.

A426

A1b

Blue’s Haplogroup

For most of dog history, this haplogroup was probably quite rare. However, a couple hundred years ago it seems to have found its way into a prized male guard dog in Europe who had many offspring, including the ancestors of many European guard breeds such as Doberman Pinchers, St. Bernards, and Great Danes. Despite being rare, many of the most imposing dogs on Earth have it; strangely, so do many Pomeranians! Perhaps this explains why some Poms are so tough, acting like they're ten times their actual size! This lineage is most commonly found in working dogs, in particular guard dogs. With origins in Europe, it spread widely across other regions as Europeans took their dogs across the world.

Ha.8

Blue’s Haplotype

Part of the A1b haplogroup, this rare haplotype occurs most often in Schipperkes and village dogs in Croatia.

Great Danes and Pomeranians have this in common!
