Looking to Adopt Your New Best Friend?

If You’re Considering Adopting a Lagotto

It's so easy to fall in love. And no wonder; Sharing your home with a curly companion can be one of life's greatest joys. Dogs can provide unconditional loyalty and acceptance, constant companionship,  and even help relieve stress after a hard day's work.

But there are lots of things to consider before you add a dog to your family.

Finding the best fit for the dog and its prospective family is our first priority. We want all our adoption placements to be forever. So if you're serious about adding a dog to your family and if you're willing to wait for the perfect match, adopting a dog through Lagotto Romagnolo Dog Rescue could be an ideal choice. Because every dog deserves a second chance! 




We appreciate you wanting to bring a dog into your home. In order for us to find the right pet for you, we need you to submit an adoption application.



We will review your application upon receipt. If we have any questions or concerns, we will contact you by email, phone or both.

Home Visit


Once your application review is complete, a Lagotto Romagnolo Dog Rescue volunteer will contact you to schedule a home visit to meet in person and discuss all things dog. During the home visit, we look for potential hazards for the Lagotto that the adopter may not have considered. All household members must be present during the home visit. This includes all pets.

Finding Your Pet


Once you're approved to adopt, the search for your Lagotto begins. Volunteers will begin to evaluate dogs currently in our foster care program who may be a good fit for you and your family. We would also be open to discussing Lagotti in our care which you are specifically interested in.


  • We will not discuss adoption details regarding any particular dog until after we receive your application
  • Lagotto Romagnolo Dog Rescue is a 100% volunteer, non-profit organization. We will make every effort to schedule your home visit in a timely manner. Please be patient with us…the dogs need our time too.
  • All dogs are spayed/neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on all shots prior to adoption
  • Adoption fees range from $0 to $1500, based on the age and health of each individual animal.
