Also known as the Italian Pointer or Italian Griffon, the Spinone Italiano is an all-purpose hunting dog developed in the Piedmonte district of Northwest Italy. Although not common in North America, the Spinone is an ancient Italian breed who has excelled as a pointer and retriever for centuries. Today, he is still a popular hunting dog in many countries and his gentle manners make him an excellent family companion as well.

The Spinone is a muscular and powerful dog with great stamina. He is very sociable, brave and loyal with a great capacity for learning and a strong desire to please. Although serious when at work in the field, the Spinone enjoys having a good time and can be quite clownish and entertaining. He has a great love for children and gets along well with other animals.

As the name would suggest, the Spinone Italiano originates from Italy. An effective hunting dog with plenty of stamina, he has become used to working in many different types of terrain. The Spinone Italiano was registered with the AKC in 2000.
If you are considering a Spinone Italiano puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances. This should include hip x-rays to exclude Hip Dysplasia and eyes should also be tested.
