Default Anyone identify the breed of this dog figure?

Can anyone identify the breed of this porcelain figure of a dog, if it actually does represent a particular breed? Thanks!

Thanks for the replies! No, there's no yellow, it's all white with the only other colouring being the brown on and around the ears and on the rump. I wondered about a retriever, but if it is I'm not at all sure which. I think the photo's a bit deceptive regarding size as the camera's looking down and that changes the figure's proportions a little - looking at the real thing it has more of the look of a medium sized dog.

No story really... I came across it in the attic, n didn't remember seeing it before, so I know nothing of its history. I love dogs, but I couldn't identify it. I'm just curious.

Somehow it doesn't look like one of the more common breeds. The closest that I can find is the Glen of Imaal terrier
http://www.akc.org/breeds/glen_of_im...rier/index.cfm
but I wouldn't think they are common enough that there would be porcelain figurines of them available.
So I think it is just supposed to be a generic unidentifiable dog!

The first thing that came to mind was a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. Maybe a type of Setter or Spaniel?
