Named after the French province of Brittany, this breed is often mistaken for a Spaniel. They are a result of crossbreeding an Orange and White Setter with an unidentified French breed. They excel as hunting dogs, particularly in the bird hunting area. The Brittany Dog was recognised by the American Kennel Club in 1934.
