So you’re looking to adopt an Sussex Spaniel, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “Sussex are long, low-built bird dogs of great strength and endurance. Topping out at just 15 inches tall at the shoulder, Sussex are nonetheless described as “massive,” with a deep chest and heavy bone. Their trademark is an abundant, feathery coat of rich golden-liver. The classic spaniel head, with its wavy-coated ears and big hazel eyes, projects a somber, frowning expression delightfully at odds with the Sussex’s innate cheerfulness. “Placid, affectionate, even-tempered, true-blue, loyal” — all are words used to describe the Sussex Spaniel, a slow-but-steady hunter and congenial housedog. His frowning expression is delightfully at odds with a typically cheerful nature.”
An Sussex Spaniel typically ranges from 33.02cm to 38.1cm in height, and weighs from 15.875732950000002kg to 20.41165665kg.
