Living Area: The Spinone Italiano likes to be outside, but it's not necessary to keep this breed healthy. Occasional walks or runs are good for this breed, but it is well suited to nearly any environment that it lives in, from an apartment dwelling to an open backyard. However, this is not a dog that will enjoy being outdoors for long periods by themselves as they love affection-both giving and receiving. So long as the Spinone Italiano is going to be able to go outside on occasion, this will be the perfect living conditions for them. But there is no need for you to live on a farm or have a lot of open land in order to make this dog happy.

About this Breed

The Spinone Italiano is a distinctive looking dog with almost human-like features, according to some. With a strong bone structure and muscled appearance, this dog breed is suited to nearly any kind of terrain. The wiry short coat gives this dog a tough covering that is close fitting to the skin. However, on the rest of the body-ears, head, muzzle, head and legs and feet are covered with shorter hair. For the eyebrows, the hair is longer and more rigid, while the muzzle and cheeks have a softer feel-giving the face almost a mustached or bearded look. It is also important to note that the Spinone Italiano does not have an undercoat, and while some owners like to allow the coat to grow longer, it is often undesirable to the breed's nature. The tail of this dog breed is about half its length (or 5.5 inches to 8 inches from the base) and short haired. The longer head structure and a very pronounced eye socket structure further enhances a human-esque look, while the expression of understanding is what causes most owners to feel that the eyes are more human than dog like.
