A Brittany spaniel is a great dog for rescue work. People trapped in life-or-death situations need to be found as quickly as possible.

However, the 1.3 kilogrammes (2.9 pounds) pack seems a bit large, and bulky, for a dog that weighs 14 kilogrammes (31lbs). I'm sure they're working on smaller, more powerful, packs. Hooray for Gonta.
