Cocker Spaniels

  • Cocker Spaniels generally stand 14 to 18 inches tall at the shoulder, and can weigh about 24 to 28 lbs. Cocker Spaniels can have either wavy or straight hair, and come in almost every color.
  • Cocker Spaniels and especially┬áCocker Spaniel mixes, historically, have always been known for their sweet, affectionate temperaments.
  • Due to their extreme popularity, Cocker Spaniels have been carelessly overbred and inbred by puppy mills and backyard breeders. This has given rise to a new sub-generation of Cocker Spaniels with severe health and temperament problems.
  • 25% of pets in shelters are purebred.
