Irish water spaniel Description
  The Irish Water Spaniel is the largest of the spaniels. It has a crisp-textured curly coat and a hairless, rat-like tail. It has a smooth short-coated face. It has a rather large head with an arched skull. The curly outer coat is lined with a dense undercoat that helps insulate them in very cold water. A top-knot of curls on the head hangs down to cover and protect its eyes. Its muzzle is long, square and powerful. They have long ears that are covered with curls. Its hind quarters are as high or slightly higher than the shoulders and its chest is deep, but fairly narrow for free movement when swimming. It also has webbed feet to assist in swimming.
