Sussex Spaniel  


This distinguished spaniel has been around for many centuries and was one of the AKC’s original nine officially recognized breeds. This spaniel’s flushing style differs from many other Spaniel breeds in that it was developed to accompany hunters on foot. Its slower, deliberate pace is reflected in its long, low-slung, robust build. It is great tracker and well suited to pursuing and retrieving game in dense brush. In contrast to its droll expression, the Sussex Spaniel is has a cheerful, easygoing personality and loves the company of its family, children, and other animals. Its rich, liver-colored coat requires weekly brushing and its silky, pendulous ears should be checked regularly for foreign objects and tangles.
