Brittanys are unique sporting dogs: Smaller than setters but leggier than spaniels, they stand about 20 inches at the shoulder. Known for their beautiful, boldly patterned coat, Brittanys come in combinations of white and vivid orange and liver (reddish-brown). They’re rugged and strong—the word “muscular” occurs more than once in the breed standard—but smooth, clean, and quick afoot. The face has the “softness” prized by bird-dog lovers; high-set ears convey the breed’s essential eagerness.
