Breed

English Toy Spaniel

The English Toy Spaniel is a square, snub-nosed toy weighing no more than 14 pounds. The large, domed head—with its long and lush ears, dark melting eyes, and chubby cheeks (described by fans as “well-cushioned”)— is a famous breed trait. Another is a coat that comes in four varieties, each with its own proper name: red and white (Blenheim); black and tan (King Charles); white, black, and tan (Prince Charles); and a solid red (Ruby). Blenheims often have a red mark, the “Blenheim Spot,” on top of the head.
