So you’re looking to adopt an Welsh Springer Spaniel, or already have one?
According to the American Kennel Club, “Standing between 17 and 19 inches at the shoulder, Welshies are described by their fans as being of “handy size”: bigger and stronger than Cocker Spaniels but smaller than English Springers.Welshies have two hallmarks that distinguish them from other spaniels: A uniquely tapered head and an eye-catching coat of bold red and white patterns. The beautiful coat isn’t just ornamental—it’s a waterproof, weatherproof, and thornproof suit that enables Welshies to show off their renowned versatility in all climates and on all terrains. The Welsh Springer Spaniel is a vigorous, medium-sized bird dog of happy disposition, known for versatility in the field, companionability at home, and dashing good looks anywhere. The Welshie is among Britain’s oldest sporting breeds.”
An Welsh Springer Spaniel typically ranges from 43.18cm to 48.26cm in height, and weighs from 15.875732950000002kg to 24.947580350000003kg.
