History of the Epagneul Breton in America In America as in other parts of the world, the Epagneul Breton is now recognized and accepted as a separate and distinct breed from its distant cousin, the American Brittany. Since the two breeds share common French ancestry, it is impossible to provide an accurate history of the Epagneul Breton in the United States, without distinguishing the breed from what has become the Americanized version, now customarily referenced as the American Brittany. However, it should be observed at the outset that the Epagneul Breton is quite different in appearance from the American Brittany. There are also notable differences in the manner in which the two breeds are bred to typically perform in the field. The typical contrast in the two breeds is usually demonstrated in the size and the physical structure of various body components, such as the head, as well as overall general body appearance. The head of the classic Epagneul Breton is different in structure than the classic American Brittany head, with the Epagneul Breton possessing a more prominent slope in the forehead and a shorter muzzle and nose. These body components give the Epagneul Breton dog a distinctly different look or expression than an American Brittany dog, whose bone structure and shape of the head are decidedly different. American Brittany dogs are often lankier in appearance, by virtue of being somewhat longer in body from head to rear. In contrast, the classic Epagneul Breton is "cobby" with its height to the withers equal to its body length. This square or cobby look gives the Epagneul Breton the appearance of a dog which is more compact, and more muscular in appearance. In contrast to the American Brittany, the Epagneul Breton's desirable maximum height is 20.1 inches at the withers and a Breton rarely weighs over forty pounds (40 lbs.). Many American Brittany dogs are considerably larger than even their official conformation standard provides, while it is very rare to see an Epagneul Breton which is outside the size limit specified in the official breed conformation standard.
