Overview

Valid color is white with brown or orange markings. Mostly white with large brown plates (spots.) There is usually one plate that covers the backside above the tail. A mantle (large marking across the back) is permissible, but generally less desired. The coat is medium long, with feathers on the leg and longer hair on the front of the chest, giving the impression of a longer haired coat. The Drentsche Patrijshond is 55 to 63 cm (22 to 25 in). at the withers.

Though the breed shows a strong hunting instinct in the field, and can be quite driven, these dogs tend to be more relaxed in the home than many of the hunting breeds. They are strongly attached to family members, loyal, and of sweet disposition, particularly with children.

History
The Drentsche Patrijshond originated in the Netherlands in the 16th Century, and were bred down from the Spioenen dogs that came through France from Spain. In the Netherlands they were called Partridge dogs. The breed is related to the Small Munsterlander and the Epagneul Francais. The Drentsche Patrijshond was recognized by the United Kennel Club January 1, 1996.
