American Cocker Spaniel
The merry and frolicsome American Cocker Spaniel, with his big, dreamy eyes and impish personality, is one of the world's best-loved breeds. They were developed as hunting dogs, but they gained their wide popularity as all-around companions. Those big, dark eyes; that sweet expression; those long, lush ears that practically demand to be touched. No wonder the American Cocker Spaniel spent years as America's most popular breed. The coat comes in enough colors and patterns to please any taste. The well-balanced body is sturdy and solid, and these quick, durable gundogs move with a smooth, easy gait. They are eager playmates for kids and are easily trained as companions and athletes. They are big enough to be sporty, but compact enough to be portable. An American Cocker Spaniel in full coat rewards extra grooming time by being the prettiest dog on the block. These energetic sporting dogs love playtime and brisk walks.
