English Toy Spaniels are very relaxed dogs and they would normally prefer to stay home. However, they were developed as companions and would not like to be separated from their owners for a long time. They are great for new dog owners and are sociable to other dogs, people, and even strangers. They do not shed a lot but their coat still needs to be brushed once or twice a week.
Origin of the English Toy Spaniel
The English Toy Spaniel, also called the King Charles Spaniel in England, was named after King Charles II, who adored this breed together with other royalties like Mary, Queen of Scots. They are one of the few aristocratic breeds and are nicknamed the ‘Charlies’. They are believed to have originated from Japan or China and was brought to Britain way back the 13th century. They also appeared in some Renaissance paintings like that of Jean-Baptiste Huet in 1778.
