Known since the mid-19th century in the French province by the same name, the Brittany is the smallest of the versatile gun dogs. Though spaniel-sized (average 30 to 45 lbs.), the Brittany is a pointing breed, not a spaniel. The Brittany points and holds his game, and retrieves both on land and in water. He is used primarily on upland game in the United States, but is used on both fur and feather in France.
The Brittany is a dog without extremes. This is a compact, closely knit dog of medium size, able to cover ground with agility. A Brittany's medium-length coat is flat or wavy, and may be colored orange and white, liver and white, or tri-color, in clear or roan patterns.
