Irish Water Spaniel Puppies for Sale: About the Breed

The Irish Water Spaniel is considered to be a rare breed and is the tallest of the Spaniels. They originated in Ireland in the mid 1800s for use as game retrieval from water as well as land. This breed was exceedingly popular in 1875, but over the years has been replaced in favor of the Labrador Retriever. The Irish Water Spaniel is now an uncommon and difficult to obtain breed.

The tail, face, and ends of the rear legs have smooth short hair. The coat is crisp in texture and solid brown in color. The curly outer coat is lined with a dense under coat that serves as insulation from frigid water. To cover and protect the eyes a top-knot of curls hangs down from the head.
