The future of the Spinone rests with the sires and dams who have demonstrated their ability to provide for successive generations. In recognition of their contributions to the breed, SCOA awards the Registry of Merit (ROM) Certificate to those Spinone whose offspring reflect the breed’s character and purpose as evidenced by the titles achieved.
