Irish Water Spaniel
The Irish Water Spaniel (IWS) is an intelligent dog of ancient lineage and largest member of the spaniel family (males are 22 to 24 inches at the shoulder and 55 to 65 lbs). Developed in Ireland as versatile water fowl and upland bird dog that could work the cold waters of the Irish Sea and the Irish bog lands, they are recognizable by their distinctive rolling (drunken sailor) gait, their thick curly puce liver coloured coat, their smooth face with a topknot falling over their inquisitive eyes, and their distinctive rat tail.
