Sussex Spaniel

The Sussex Spaniel is a distinctive and rare breed known for its unique appearance, gentle temperament, and hunting abilities. Looking a bit like a cross between a Cocker Spaniel and a Dachshund, they are characterized by their long, low bodies, square heads, and long, pendulous ears. They have a dense, weather-resistant coat that comes in rich shades of golden liver or golden red. Bred originally as hunting dogs, Sussex Spaniels have a strong hunting instinct and are skilled at flushing and retrieving game. They have a keen sense of smell and enjoy being outdoors exploring.
