The Drentse Patrijshond also Drentsche Patrijshond (in Dutch) is a medium sized spaniel-type gun dog from the Netherlands province of Drenthe. Sometimes they are called the "Dutch Partridge Dog" or "Drent" in English.[1][2][3]

History[change | change source]

These hunting dogs were developed in the Netherlands around the 17th century and they are closely related to the French Spaniel and the German Small Münsterländer hunting dogs.[2]

Colours[change | change source]

These dogs will always be mostly white with a lot of brown markings, their ears and a lot of the head will always be brown.[2]

Temperment[change | change source]

These dogs are usually gentle and happy and good with children and other dogs. They need lots of exercise like many of the other spaniels.[4]
