Sussex Spaniel
Cheerful and Tractable

This breed gets its name from Sussex County, England.
The breed had its beginnings in 1795, and was developed over
the next fifty years by a man named Mr. Fuller, of Rosehill Park
near Hastings.  There are two distinguishing characteristics of
the Sussex Spaniel breed.  The first is color which described as
"golden liver," unique to this breed.  The second distinction is
the custom of "giving tongue" when he scents game, a behavior
which is unlike spaniels, and furthermore, it is said that many
huntsman can tell by the tone of the bark whether the game is
fur or feather.  The dogs being low set, sturdy and muscular,
are well suited for hunting heavy brush and hedgerows,
common in England.

Although the Sussex Spaniel loves to hunt, and is ever ready
to romp, his placid soft and affectionate demeanor make him an
excellent choice for the urban family.  The breed is quite rare in
North America, so finding one requires extra patience but most
definitely worth the effort.  Their exercise needs are moderate
with a good daily walk and romps in the yard.  Their coat needs
grooming a couple of times per week.  They are excellent with
children and tend to bond with the whole family.  They are very
friendly dogs, but tend to be wary of strangers and hence,
make very good watchdogs.
