This is a breed with a very distinctive look, thanks to their characteristic curly mop. Unfortunately, that has not stopped it from being fairly rare, like one of its ancestors, the Irish Water Spaniel.

Round and developed at the top, prominent occipital crest, rather rounded parietals. Forehead rising to the topknot, which should be very curly and well placed on the top of the skull, leaving the forehead bare.

Although the breed is named after the small Norman town, Pont-Audemer is not its true birthplace. It is said to be the offspring of a cross between a local spaniel from Pays de Caux and a water dog. Many believe that the Irish Water Spaniel was the breed in question.
