Cavalier King Charles Spaniel

The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel originated in England and was bred for human companionship. They were thought to have been a mixture of the King Charles Spaniel and other Spaniel types that resembled this breed in paintings from the 16th century. They are descendants of the King Charles Spaniel and were given the name 'Cavalier' to differentiate the two.

This breed is known for their silky smooth coat and large floppy ears. They have a compact body that has substantial weight, and thin boned legs with small furry paws. The CKCS (Cavalier King Charles Spaniel) has a long tail, but for show purposes will be docked. Their muzzle is short yet round and their eyes are large with a happy expression to them. This breed will come in 4 colour varieties, the Ruby (red), the King Charles (black & tan), the Blenheim (white with patches of red), and the Prince Charles (tri-colouring).

The CKCS is an extremely affectionate breed that would stay in the presence of their owners the entire day if they could. They are well behaved, polite dogs that will make great family pets. They get along well with other dogs, smaller pets and children as they are a bright happy-go-lucky dogs.
