OK I am one of three. I am not as well known as the first two though I am considered to be the earlist of the three. We aren't even really related just share part of a common name. Also I have a long flowing tail that can be docked a little bit, but not as short as the other two.
I am UKC registered though
My bloodlines are a combo of bird, hawk, and waterdog, as well as scenthound.
Therefore I have a scope for great versatility.
It is noted that I do not know what fatigue is, in the field and work I am swift and firm to point. In all terrain woods, thickets, field and reeds. I am exellent at reporting so we are very suitable for hunting in hars and hilly country. We are also superb in retreiving especially in water.
I am good natured, very lovable and easy to train. Though high-spirited.
I am liver with or without white including the head.
I am 21 to 28 inches high, with moderate length of hair, that is wavy, tough, with an undercoat and feathering on my legs. I weigh between 55 and 70 lbs.
Who am I?
