Like its smaller representative, the Small Munster Spaniel, the Large Munster Spaniel is closely related to the French Spaniel. It was developed in the region of Munster and was used at the end of the 19th century as a hunting dog, but also as a sheepdog. It is not very common, as most hunters prefer the German Wirehaired Pointer as a prototype pointer.
