Bold and Daring Retrieves

“The Irish Water Spaniel was quickly received by both Irish and English sportsmen for its bold and daring retrieves, its extreme hardiness in the cold North Sea waters, and its superb disposition. By the 1870s, the reputation of the breed became known in America, and a number were brought over at that time. By 1875, the IWS was the third most popular sporting dog in the U.S.” – From the Irish Water Spaniel Club of America

A terrific photograph of the bond between IWS and owner – our thanks to Florence Blecher for sharing it with us.
