Our friend recently lost their Spinone and we were almost as devastated as he was. She was utterly gorgeous. Soft, friendly and very playful in a big lollopy kind of way! We are Spaniel folk and a Spinone is the only other breed we might consider as we lost our hearts to her.
Things about them: As deep chested dogs they are more at risk of gut problems/blost - this is how this girl died They need LOTS of room - no two up two downs for a dog this size! The dog we loved lived on a farm and spent much of her time in the day padding about the place but tbf she also slept a great deal! They slobber. A great deal. You will need a cloth dedicated to mopping your dog's face and when guests come you will need to warn them as they can be very friendly with their slobber and paws! The Spinone we knew did not really shed too badly but she did need frequent baths and her coat needed more care than the average dog. They are very people focused and should not be left for long periods of time but then this applies to all dogs so I am sure that you have thought of that. You will need to take care with exercise as a pup because they are large dogs and you can over exercise them which causes joint damage - the breeder will tell you all of that though.
Have fun - they are brilliant dogs with amazing personalities.
