Also called American Cocker, this sturdy dog has long coloured, silky and generally wavy fur (it can be black, white, cream or red), very popular in dog shows. Its ears fall on its little head. This is a gay and curious animal, very playful. But its character is well marked: do not leave it unattended with young children for example. It is also a lively and active dog: it excels in agility! Did you know that in the cartoon "The Lady and the Tramp," the dog Lady is an American Cocker Spaniel?
