Winterborn Spinone is located in Northern Idaho. We are a small breeder of Spinone Italiano, and our Spins are part of our family.

~ Reservations for 2 Boys Available for Spring 2016 ~
All of our Spinoni have been DNA tested by the AHT (Animal Health Trust in the UK); and are "CA Clear" (Cerebellar Ataxia Clear). This is a rare genetic disease that kills puppies at a young age. Bloodlines that are "CA Clear" never need to worry about this disease.
Our puppies are sold with full AKC registration. All of our puppies come with puppy shot records, microchip identification, tails docked, dew claws removed, health warranty, information packet, and a familiar toy. Litter pedigree available on Gun Dog Breeder's (Top tab: Dog Pedigrees, to Spinone Italiano Pedigrees, to Winterborn Spinone). We will help facilitate domestic shipping at your expense.
Please let us know what you envision doing with your Spinone. Since each litter has a limited number of puppies to choose from, we will pre-screen the litter for the best candidates for your needs. From that selection we will give you a choice from that group (as long as they last). Please check back with us, we will post puppy pictures on our website as soon as they become available. ~ We have updated our website, and now have individual pages for each litter. Please visit our Puppy page on WinterbornSpinone.com for more photos.

When it comes to hunting, the Spinone is an all-terrain hunter with a steady trot, "hunting at a more human pace." When asked, "Does this hunting dog make a good pet?" my answer is, "Absolutely, but most are still hunters at heart so you will need a fenced yard."
Spinone are for people who like to spend time with their dogs.
Please let us know if you are interested in a boy from our next litter (spring 2016). In the Spinone Italiano breed boys are as sweet, or sweeter, than the girls. We estimate the number of breeding Spinoni in America to be under 2,000. Beyond a few prior girl reservations, we are giving breeders preference for girls born at Winterborn in 2016.
We look forward to hearing from you,

Submitted by: michele puiggari on Sep 16, 2015Dealing with Winterborn is a joy! The process was easy and Sherry did everything possible to address our needs and answer our questions. We were able to arrange to visit when the puppies were 4 weeks old. All the puppies were wonderful and had great personalities. We picked up our girl at 8 weeks. She is healthy, happy and well adjusted. I would highly recommend this breeder to anyone.
Submitted by: Matt and Paula Williams on Sep 16, 2015Winterborne was really wonderful to work with. Sherry made our search for a calm therapy termperment Spinone very easy. Throughout the process she was a wealth of information and ultimately made sure we brought home a puppy that was a perfect match for our family. Beautiful Spinones.
Thank you Sherry and the Winterborne team!
Submitted by: Jennifer and Gavin Clark on Sep 07, 2015We love our girl Zita, she is exactly what we expected! Sherry and Wintrborn Spinone are wonderful to work with, from our first contact to pick up. They truly love this bred, We got so much information and support during the process. There was always photos, videos and phone calls to make sure Zita was a good fit for us. We can't say enough about Winterborn! We look forward to getting another Spinone from them!!

Submitted by: Susan Barratt on May 17, 2015My Teddy boy has been home for 2 weeks, he is a funny, floppy character who came with a very solid background. He is confident, playful and highly trainable. Sherry has provided a fantastic groundwork from which to build. He actually knew Go Potty when he arrived, as well as a good notion of retrieving.He is my love with a big wet maw!
Submitted by: Heather on May 11, 2015An overall wonderful experience in acquiring our Spinone puppy! From start to finish Sherry and Winterborn Spinone were fantastic and easy to work with. Lots of pictures and video, as well as phone conversation updates on our puppy. After bringing our Spinone puppy home, it is evident all the time and effort that Sherry and Winterborn put into their dogs and breeding program. Our puppy is well ahead of adjusted life in and outside of the home. (ie Crate training, potty training, socializing) Wonderful breed! We are extremely happy with our choice of Winterborn Spinone and would choose them again in a heartbeat! Very helpful and knowledgeable as well.
Submitted by: Lane Phillips on Feb 13, 2015As a fellow breeder, Sherry was great to work with. Sherry did everything she said she would do and in a timely manner. She is a happy, considerate and easy person to deal with. She spends a lot of her time and energy with her dogs and her breeding ventures. She, like the few other spinone breeders that I know and work with, has acquired and developed the best dogs she can and tries to give the world a healthier and better specimen of the Spinone breed.
Submitted by: J. Maguire on Oct 14, 2014Sherry was terrific! She spent an incredible amount of time sending pictures , emails and phone conversations describing the puppy and making sure we were a good fit. The purchase was tedious due to my situation and she was more than accommodating and took care of every detail with flying colors.
Foli is an amazing dog and much of that is attributed to Sherry's care of her animals and paying particular attention to their integration into the home.
Submitted by: Tom on Jul 20, 2014Sherry and her loving, and deep knowledge of the Spinone Italiano breed is what led us to her and kept us with her! She is a pleasure to work with and made the process of buying a dog from across the country an easy adventure. She sent us videos and kept us up to date on his growth so we knew how our little guy was doing along the way.
Lastly, her matchmaking skills are superb! We love our Birdman. And can't wait for number 2. :)
Submitted by: Scott Keefer on May 14, 2014Breeder communicated extensively birth through delivery to buyer. Puppy fully complies with written description of the breed. Highly recommended.
Submitted by: Bob & Kim Goodwine on Apr 27, 2014We recently purchased our first Spinone from Winterborn Spinone and could not be happier with the entire experience. We did a lot of research on the breed and breeders prior to deciding to go with Winterborn and Sherry exceeded all of our expectations. The care and attention that Sherry shows to her dogs is exemplary...it is very much a passion and not something she is doing to make a profit. She cares very much about the Spinone breed and is respectful of what it takes to produce quality dogs. Since Winterborn is a small kennel, all of the puppies receive an amazing amount of personal attention. Before you even get your puppy, Sherry and her family have begun the potty training process for you and all of the puppies are used to being handled and worked with. We have always had dogs and this puppy experience has been our easiest. Our Rocco is smart as a whip and his affable personality is a delight. He is the most unflappable puppy I have ever met which is saying a lot since we have always had Goldens which are pretty mellow by nature. If you are looking for a dog from champion lines, but want a more personal experience than some of larger kennels can offer, Winterborn Spinone will be your perfect fit.
