Breed Profile: The Ancient Spinone Italiano

Name

spinone-italiano-3

One theory about the breed’s name is that it was named after an Italian thorn bush, called the spino, where small game frequently hid because large animals could not invade the bush. Animals who had coarse hair and thin skin were the only ones who could penetrate the bush. The Spinone was one of the few who could perform that task.
