Linda Collins the well-known and respected English Spinone breeder/ judge did visit our litter with 8 weeks. She judged each individual puppy and helped us to choose our puppy bitch Equità.
Her meaning of our litter in her own words:
“Overall I felt the litter was of good quality, for breed type, conformation, skin and coat.
Going over each individual puppy, eliminating was a hard decision, however this is to be done to continue the quality of our Spinoni of today. Out of the litter I chose three that I could have easily have lived with. All three showed good head profile, super expression good eye, correct ear shape, strong neck leading into correct shoulder placement, good length of back, deep chest and well pronounced sternum correct underline, well boned with good shape feet. Good width of thigh and well-laid hocks. Coat of harsh lecture lying close to thick leathery skin. Good movement.
I then had to make a final decision, this I did with great reluctance.”
We thank Linda for her time and professional help with this difficult decision.
