Spinone Italiano Puppies
Description: The Spinone Italianos are a very talented hunting dog breed. Their tracking abilities are keen and their "soft" mouth retrieves game unspoiled. The Spinones also have a terrific personality and are gentle dogs who are devoted and very willing to please. Considered more of a hound than a pointer, they are not known to be barkers, whiny or bossy. The Spinone Italiano is a large, muscular dog that is sturdy and strong. They have long drop ears and a full beard, with a medium length coat on the rest of the body and longer fur on the face. They can come in colors of solid white, white and orange, orange roan with or without orange markings, white with brown markings, the list goes on. They have a varied appearance, but the same stance and hard working abilities. The Spinone Italiano is impressively handsome and resembles an old grandfather with wisdom. The breed's tail is docked to about half its length. Spinone Italianos are a wonderful choice for the family looking for a playful yet hard working pet or hunting partner.
