American Water Spaniel

American Water Spaniel Dog Breed Information

The American Water Spaniel, also known as the Brown Spaniel, was developed in the 1800s in the Midwest of the USA. Its probable ancestors are mainly the Irish Water Spaniel, along with some Curly-Coated Retriever and Field Spaniel. It was developed as a hunting dog; it flushes or springs waterfowl mostly and then retrieves it for the hunter. It works well even in very cold water and its lightweight makes it easy to transport to hunting sites by canoe.
