English Toy Spaniel

Tags: toy, Adaptable to apartment life

We're a lightweight (8-14 pound), elegant breed who've been showing up in royal portraits for centuries -- maybe because we're so obedient and obliging and wouldn't think of moving before the release command from the Queen. We're called by four different names -- all with in the English Toy Spaniel breed -- based on the color scheme of our long, silky coats. The Blenheims (the red and white amongst us) have deep red or chestnut markings on a pearly white background. The Prince Charles (the tri-color types) are also pearly white with black patches, ears and face markings. The King Charles Spaniels are a rich, glossy black with bright mahogany-tan markings. The Ruby Spaniels are mahogany red, sometimes with a small white chest patch.

Rave review

  • Adaptable to apartment life -- with ample exercise
  • Affectionate, devoted family friend
  • Classy canine
  • Confident and self-assured
  • Easygoing

Report card

  • Even tempered, good-natured
  • Never aggressive
  • Playful pal
  • Social butterfly
  • Sweet disposition
  • Takes to training
  • A welcomer, not a watchdog

What to expect

Here's my list of demands -- or requests, actually, because I'm not that demanding: Please brush and comb my silky fur daily (or a couple times a week at a minimum). Make sure the vet checks my eyes and ears regularly (this is non-negotiable because it's important). And that's all the requests. Now, if you don't mind, let's play. Or I may sit in your lap -- you decide.

Watch for

Possible patellar luxation (slipped kneecaps), diabetes mellitus, epilepsy, and umbilical cord hernias.
