About this Breed

The Spinone Italiano is the all-purpose hunting dog of Italy. This breed has been around for a long time, potentially since the Italian Renaissance. It believed these dogs descended from local Italian dogs breeding with hunting dogs brought by merchant ships along the Adriatic Sea. Spinoni are the ultimate hunters with the ability to point and retrieve. Their hardy coat allows them to thrive in many terrains and requires little maintenance. These dogs are very intelligent and very active dogs that probably aren’t best suited for city living. Spinoni make great family pets.
