King Charles Spaniel (Tri-colour)
The History of Toy Spaniels indicates that they developed independently in England, Europe and Asia simultaneously. Today we have distinctly different modern pure breeds descending directly from these ancient Spaniels. The line between Spaniels (Toy) and Spaniels (Sporting) historically dates back to over one thousand years ago to the days of using dogs for hunting. Here we shall consider Toy Spaniels separately.
