The Miniature Pinscher is a dog of German breed that was developed from the Dachshund, the Italian Greyhound and the German Pinscher. It resembles the mini Doberman, which can be probably explained by the fact that the Doberman was also developed from the German Pinscher. The original purpose of the breed was to serve as a barnyard ratter, helping to control the population of rodents living in stables. Also known as the “king of the toys”, this miniature dog has talents such as competitive obedience, watchdog abilities and agility.

The Irish Red and White Setter is a breed of dogs very similar to the Irish Setter. It was developed as a gun dog breed with the purpose of assisting in the hunting of game birds. The breed was near to be extinct at around 1850, but total extinction never happened, due to the efforts of a few dedicated breeders who kept it alive. Nowadays, the breed is used in all kinds of hunting activities, because these dogs have an excellent sense of smell and they are adaptable to any climate and any terrain, including wetlands.

The Springer Spaniel comes from the same litter as the Cocker Spaniel, but with different skills and a slightly larger body. Whilst the Cockers got their name because they were used for hunting woodcock birds, the Springer got its name because it flushed the pray out, basically scaring it and making it jump out (spring out) of its hiding hole.
