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.
