Rick, interesting as I've seen all of two wachtelhunds and both of 'em easily exceeded 50 pounds. So "much smaller" would be relative - I've always thought of wachtels, surprise, surprise, as a bigger Boykin. The breed standard says 44 - 66 pounds, which would make even the smallest within that standard almost twice the size of my Boykin. Then again, I've had a Boykin that ballooned over 50 pounds too.
But no matter how you cut it or put it, wachtels are an intriguing breed for the varied (and hardcore) work they take on.
