A hunter of small game with excellent stamina in the field, the Sussex Spaniel has a massive, rectangular body with large, low ears and an outstanding nose. Although this breed has a somber, serious expression, he is friendly and lively. The Sussex Spaniel has an even temperament and is devoted and gentle around the house. His thick coat, which can be flat or wavy, should be brushed weekly.
