Italian Spinone

A hardy worker in the field and a patient companion in the home, the Italian Spinone is an ancient breed thought to be descendant of native Italian hounds and French Griffons. The Italian Spinone is a multi-purpose, hunting, pointing retrieving breed adaptable and versatile enough to perform guard dog duties if required to do so.

Noted for his good scenting skills and soft mouth, he excels at working rough woodland and marshes thanks to his thick wiry coat.

People loving, companionable, faithful and willing to please, the Italian Spinone has a gentle nature and sweet sensitivity. Not a breed which responds well to loud voices and harsh handling, but quickly responds to and respects calm, firm consistency. Thriving on companionship, without human company he will soon become despondent.
