English Toy Spaniel Puppies
Description: In the United States and Canada they are known as the English Toy Spaniel. The name "King Charles" is given to the black and tan variety only, while the "Blenheims" are red and white, "Rubys" are solid red, and "Prince Charles'" are the tricolor type. Known throughout English and Scottish history as hot water bottles and excellent companions, they were once used as tiny gundogs. English Toy Spaniels are the ultimate lap dogs, as they love to sit by their owners' side, or on their owner's lap. They are sweet, shy, easygoing and affectionate to their owners and those they are familiar with. They make a wonderful companion for the elderly, as they are rather easy to care for. English Toy Spaniels are small, compact dogs with a very domed skull and a very short muzzle. Their faces resemble that of the Pug, with bodies resembling the Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. Their tails are naturally short or screwed, often docked by owners. Their demeanor is like that of a normal spaniel, sweet and friendly. They are forgiving dogs, eager and very intelligent in obedience. They are sure to please, as that is their main goal. They are affectionate, laidback and friendly towards all. They get along with children and other animals, and are happy and content to just sit on your lap. The English Toy Spaniel's eyes and ears are sensitive to injury, but otherwise care for the dog is minimal. They are an ideal apartment dog.
