Immacolata Segugio di Morghengo, 'Imma'
1998 - 2008
owned by Vic & Janet Renzi of Pennsylvania

 

Welcome to our online Spinone community!  Information on Spinone related topics and immediate access to knowledge from others can also be found on our Spinone USA Forum.  It is our hope that Spinone owners from around the world will become an integral part of the site and offer their Spinone wisdom and anecdotes to fellow enthusiasts.
 
This site is a collaborative effort of a number of Spinone enthusiasts, folks that have been owned by the breed for many years. These contributors have a variety of interests and expertise, and are located world-wide.  Our goal is to offer information on a variety of topics, but more importantlyto encourage an environment where ideas and opinions can be openly exchanged. There will be times when some will have to agree to disagree, but in the spirit of being open to new ideas, our breed can only benefit from the open communication, and sharing of opinions and expertise.
 
This site will address a multitude of topics. Provided links will introduce information pertinent to your life with a Spinone beginning with choosing the breeder, selecting the right pup for your lifestyle, bringing the pup home, routine care and nutrition, grooming for health and showing, organized activities and clubs open to the versatility of this breed, and various issues as the pup advances thru the life cycle into the teenage, middle, and senior years with their special needs. You will find answers to specific concerns regarding breed specific health issues, life altering and life threatening illnesses, the complexities of breeding, poisons and hazards in and around the home, the pros and cons of importing a dog, safety practices and tips when traveling with your Spinone and virtually any other topic that might interest you.   There will be a section available for stud dog owners to list their dog(s) with a picture, pedigree and any additional data about their dog(s).
 
For your information, I have also included links to join the various Spinone email lists you can find on the internet. In addition, if you know of upcoming Spinone-related events, from dog shows, supported entries at shows, hunt test or training, to a gathering of folks in a particular location, please send me the info and I will post it on the site.
  
  Spinone USA Forum
The forum is designed to be an almost interactive environment where questions can be posted and folks with experience or input can reply. It is similar to an email list, except that your email Inbox does not fill up and the topic thread, or entire conversation can be viewed from one location.  Pictures can be posted and there are topics already setup and available for discussion. The forum is setup for members only, but it is easy to signup and all are welcome to join. The membership requirement simply removes spammers from joining and others outside of the Spinone or canine world that might intend some sort of disruption. The success of the forum depends on our members (and guests) to use this foundation and build on it by sharing our knowledge, stories, photos and friendship in an open and honest forum.
