The English Toy Spaniel originally came from the Far East but the exact information is unknown. There were four different types which are based on their colours; The Prince Charles was white with tan and black marks. The King Charles was tan and black. The Ruby was a rich mahogany red and the Blenheim was a rich mahogany white and red. The King Charles was a favourite of the King in England at one point and breeding attempts focused on this type. The breeds appeared in 17th, 18th and 19th century portraits of royals.
This dog is a playful, gentle, happy dog with great intelligence and good behaviour. He’s a good pet and plays with children without supervision. Because he’s small, he’s ideal for apartment living. All types of the English Toy Spaniel are simple to care for and only need brushing and combing twice a week.
