A Brittany Spainel is a medium sized sporting dog which was mainly bred for bird hunting. They stand about 19 inches tall and weigh between 30 and 40 pounds. The coat is of moderate length, dense, flat, or wavy, with slight feathering on the ears and legs. Although they are normally referred to as spaniels they are more like a pointer or a setter. Their color is normally white with orange patches or white with liver patches. They are easy to train and sweet-tempered making them a good house pet.
