About Our Dogs - and a few of the puppies we've whelped

We began our journey with Spinoni in 2005. We were looking for a dog with a gentle temperament and natural hunting ability. We fell in love with Spinone and our first boy, Enzo. A year later, Tizzy joined our family, and in October 2009 came Ivy.  We are happy to have Mara, one of Tizzy's babies, born into our family in September 2011 and our orange girl, Adele, born December 2013, who lives to torture Gramma Tizzy. Each of our dogs has captured our hearts and we couldn't be any happier with our pack of Spinoni!

Below is a little information about our dogs, including puppies we've bred and some of our accomplishments. Please contact us with questions about any aspect of our Spinoni and the breed. We’re always happy to hear from fellow dog lovers.
