The American Brittany Club (ABC) recently convened its annual meeting, with an agenda topic about potentially formalizing a breed split between the American Brittany and the Epagneul Breton (French Brittany). We're thrilled to announce that the proposal do was rejected, signifying a momentous win for the Epagneul Breton. We extend our gratitude to all EB enthusiasts and supporters of working dogs who advocated for maintaining the status quo.

For those unfamiliar with the topic, we've crafted a comprehensive 5-part series delving into the history, key influencers, and reasons behind safeguarding the breed through upholding the existing status quo at the ABC. Dive into Part 1 to explore more.

While the CEB-US is responsible for ongoing education and resource provision for the breed, we urge you to leverage these resources in guiding the breed's path forward.

Advocating for the breed and disseminating its story underscores why it stands as the foremost pointing breed.
