Sussex Spaniel

Sussex Spaniels are powerful dogs that have been bred since the early 19th century, thanks in no small part to Augustus Fuller, who selected the best qualities for more than half a century.

About the Sussex Spaniel

Sussex Spaniels possess a natural working ability, giving chase in dense cover.

Good-natured with humans and other dogs alike, their calm and friendly disposition makes them excellent family dogs for active owners.
