The Brittany is the most popular native breed in France. Often assumed to be a spaniel, it may be a spaniel by size but in function it is a classic pointer, and probably the world’s only stumpy-tailed pointer. The Brittany is strong, quick and agile, requiring exercise and activity to occupy his body and mind. He is a happy and alert dog who possesses willing attitude. Regular brushing is important, but their shorter coats need minimal maintenance.
