The Irish Water Spaniel is a very beautiful, compact, and sturdy sporting dog, intelligent, durable, courageous, passionate, and active. The distinctive shape and texture of his hair, which contrasts impressively with his smooth face and "mouse" tail, is characterized by a fluffy, loose curl on the top bun and a thick, clear, liver-colored curl on the body. Irish Water Spaniel is cheerful, docile, and submissive to its owner and occasionally playful and sensitive, the breed is the largest of the hounds, and is, therefore, an excellent hunter, especially for waterfowl. The Irish water hound has great endurance, vigilance, and curiosity. Usually Irish water hounds are reserved for strangers and do not place much trust in them.
