Springer Spaniel mum and newborn...I've owned a few of these angels in my life time they are so incredibly smart, great family dogs, bread for bird hunting in a lot of places, huge water lovers, overall happy well tempered dogs, great to have around a new baby even if you've already had the dog & don't want to raise with the baby as a puppy. One of my fav breeds ever. Rip Buster, Merlin, & Fritz <3
