A bird dog, originating in France, this spaniel/setter mix was used to point and retrieve. Very obedient, the breed was highly prized by poachers for its stealth.
These guys will run and hunt a lot. They are very independent and require mental exercise on a consistent basis. Like Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, they can lose interest in other dog breeds at about 2 years of age, though they will never tire of exercise. These dogs need things to do and places to run for their entire lives.
