Nico Del Benaco (Kemo) 1984-1997 Kemo is "in" most of the Spinone pedigrees in the US and Canada. Kemo was the best of the best! As several of the breeders from his lines had different CI (foreign) numbers for Kemo than Jim did, he visited Italy and obtained certified copies of his and other imports' pedigrees. These copies were used by AKC when they accepted the breed into the Foundation Stock in 2000. Kemo's lines are posted under this section.
SPINONI Placement/Rehome/Rescue Spinoni in need of Home. Keep in mind that a brown nose on a white Spinone might only mean that he/she has brown genes. An undocked Spinone can be from Italy or UK who are not all docking tails now! A shaved Spinone looks different from a natural coat.
SPINONI PLACEMENT POINTS OF CONTACT These volunteers have indicated that their desire is to help Spinone, so that none will be put to sleep again because of lack of response (usually noted on this site as "no longer available"). As none of the clubs any longer require health certifications for breeders, there will be more and more Spinone bred and "dumped".
Offers to Rescue or Foster Spinone Introductions by persons interested in rescuing or fostering spinone. More help will be needed in the future as none of the clubs now require any health certification. Please volunteer if you can help!
OTHER * TICKS,SKIN,FEET,SNAKES,HEAT Health issues and concerns that do not explicitly fall within the other health forums. Multi-system related categories will also be included in the "Other - " Forums.
