Sussex Spaniel

The Sussex Spaniel is one of the earliest developed spaniel breeds (recognised as such since 1790) but unfortunately is one of the rarest. At the end of World War II there were only eight of the breed in England and all the present-day Sussex have descended from them. The Sussex was bred to work in heavy cover such as bramble and rhododendron on the estates of Rosehill, Sussex.

The Sussex will carry sticks and assorted things of their own accord but need early, patient training to retrieve successfully.
