The sociable, docile, and highly adaptable Spinone Italiano, also known as the Italian Pointer, is thought to be a cross between the coarse-haired Italian setter and dogs left behind by Greek traders from the Adriatic coast, as well as the White mastiff and even the French griffon. The Spinone’s wiry, dense coat, thick skin, ultra-soft mouth and superb nose make him the ultimate all-purpose hunting dog able to navigate cold water and underbrush where less-equipped dogs fear to tread. deemed a “wash and wear” breed by the AKC for its ease of grooming (with the notable exception of that messy, water-dripping beard), the active, energetic, and robust Spinone likes nothing better than a romp through the fields with its family.
