Small Munsterlander (Imp)

Description

Illustration of Small Munsterlander (Imp)

The Small Munsterlander was developed in the early years of the 20th century by crossing the Large Munsterlander with spaniels. The result was a smaller dog with a brown and white coat. It retains the working abilities of its larger ancestor and has proven to be a versatile dog in the field.

The Gundog Breed Group

Dogs that were originally trained to find live game and/or to retrieve game that had been shot and wounded. This group is divided into four categories - Retrievers, Spaniels, Hunt/Point/Retrieve, Pointers and Setters - although many of the breeds are capable of doing the same work as the other sub-groups. They make good companions, their temperament making them ideal all-round family dogs.
