I am a relative new-comer to the Spinone Italiano, having welcomed our girl “Rosi” to our family about 7 years ago. During that time, I have learned a lot about hunt training and testing, showing, conformation and movement, and all the wonderful things that make this breed so special. We have loved several dogs over the years, dogs that held an honored place in our family, and our hearts. When we lost our Airedale to cancer at age 11, I began searching for another dog to add to our family. I had always been intrigued by the Spinone, so over the next year, I researched the breed, met some dogs, talked with breeders, and finally, welcomed our first puppy, Quattro Zampe L’Angelo Della Note, aka “Rosi” to our family in July of 2011.
