Breed Standard
The Brittany is a small dog, weighing about 30 to 40 pounds and measuring from 17-1/2 to 20-1/2 inches at the shoulder. The Brittany can be orange and white or liver and white in either clear or roan patterns as well as tri-colored. It is considered one of America's most popular gun dogs. The Brittany points and retrieves game. It is energetic and quick of movement with an exceptionally keen nose and a very biddable disposition. The Brittany can be tailless or have a docked tail of approximately four inches. The first Brittany was registered with the AKC in 1934 and is named for the French province where it originated. From 1934-1982, the Brittany was registered by AKC as Brittany Spaniel. On September 1, 1982 its official name was changed to Brittany because its manner of working game is more setter-like than spaniel-like. Read the complete breed standard at
