The Field Spaniel is a combination of beauty and utility. It is a well balanced, substantial hunter-companion of medium size, built for activity and endurance in a heavy cover and water. It has a noble carriage; a proud but docile attitude; is sound and free moving. Symmetry, gait, attitude and purpose are more important than any one part.
Black, liver, golden liver or shades thereof; either self-colored or bi-colored. Bi-colored dogs must be roaned and/or ticked in white areas. Tan points, and white markings.
Unusually docile, sensitive, funloving, independent and intelligent, with a great affinity for human companionship. They may be somewhat reserved in initial meetings.
The Field Spaniel descended through careful breeding of the English Cocker Spaniel. Originating from England this breed was almost extinct by the 1800s due to poor breeding selection. This is a rare breed to be seen due to the popularity of its cousins the Cocker and Springer Spaniels. But donÆt underestimate its ability to hunt, track and be a great family member.
