Sussex Spaniel Information

Sussex SpanielThe Sussex Spaniel kind of looks like someone took a Cocker Spaniel and stretched him out and pushed him lower to the ground. This low-built bird dog has exceptional endurance and an even-keeled personality, making him the right fit for hunting expeditions.

This breed also stands out for his rich coat with a golden/brown hue, wavy ears and big hazel eyes. It may look like the Sussex is constantly frowning, but in actuality, he is quite a happy, content dog. He brings merriment to any home! In classic Spaniel nature, the Sussex is easy to train and will surely get along with children and other pets in a household.
