Origin, classification and history
F.C.I classification: Group 7 - standing dogs.
The Piccolo Munsterlander (Kleiner Munsterlander - Petit épagneul de Munster) is the product of the crossing of "Langhaar" and "Epagneul", which was carried out towards the beginning of the twentieth century, in the city of Munster. His selection was conducted separately from that of the "Great Munsterlander", however similar it is.
This breed is the smallest of the German standing breeds. It is a small dog with a noble appearance, which manages to combine power and elegance. Dog with good muscle mass and well proportioned bone to the rest of the body.
Dog suitable for all kinds of hunting, terrain and climatic conditions. Excellent dog for the stop, both for the carryover. He is a very daring dog. Also highly appreciated as a companion breed, given its small size. Very cheerful and playful. Docile and very fast. Rather intelligent and easy to train at work. Very clean dog.
