Gentle, merry and playful, the English Toy Spaniel originated in the Far East and later appeared in England. Naturally well-behaved, this compact toy breed makes an affectionate family companion that plays well with children. The English Toy Spaniel’s small size makes him ideal for city apartments. His profuse coat is easy to groom and requires only biweekly brushing.
Evidence indicates that the English Toy Spaniel was a favorite of Mary Queen of Scots. It is said that her favorite English Toy refused to leave her, even on the scaffold.
