Our first Lagotto came in year 2000. from Italy, Cry Out kennel,  this was Cry Out Carisma, the very FIRST Lagotto in Croatia. Holly won our hearts and we decided to start breeding. Since then we bred numerless champions, world and european winners and Best In Show winners on some of the most important shows in Europe and all arround the world. We are especialy proud on our Kan Trace at Greydove (exp. In Australia) that was first Lagotto ever that won Best In Show in Australia, first Grand champion in Australia and 4 years in a row TOP Lagotto in Australia.
