Russian Spaniel is a type of Spaniel developed and standardized in the year 1951 by USSR during the Second World War. They are the result of breeding different Spaniel breeds in that period. Russian Spaniels do resemble the Cocker Spaniel but instead, have a tight and compact body. Extremely popular in the Russian subcontinent, this breed internationally became famous in the 1990s.
Temperament & Personality
The devotion and dedication which the Russian Spaniel disposes towards its owner are amazing. These dogs also make an excellent house pet despite them initially bred as a farm dog. They are great with small children and even a reliable watchdog. This breed does fine in apartment life, provided they get an open space. Considered occasional barkers, they can become wary if they come across unfamiliar faces suddenly.
