Is the Cocker Spaniel / English Springer Spaniel Mix right for you?

Species group:

Other name(s): Sprocker Spaniel

The basics:
RightPet does not advocate the intentional cross-breeding of purebred dogs. But the reality is that most dogs available for adoption at shelters and rescues are mixed breeds. We think it might be helpful to hear from owners of these mixes to see what traits can be found in these dogs who are desperately needing homes.

The first generation Sprocker Spaniel is a cross between a pure Cocker Spaniel and a pure English Springer Spaniel, although subsequent generations may have different proportions of the two breeds in the mix. The story goes that the first Sprockers were created by Scottish gamekeepers to hunt the large estates found in Scotland. While there's little doubt that they do make fine hunting companions, their devotion to their people also makes them a fine pet for active families.

Appearance / health:
It's impossible to predict the exact traits inherited by a mixed-breed dog, but this cross of two Spaniels is going to get you a hardy, energetic Spaniel.

Behavior / temperament:
While it's impossible to predict the exact personality of a mixed-breed dog, owners tend to describe the Sprocker as a friendly, active dog that thrives on the affection and attention of its people. Don't neglect this athletic mix, or it may put its energy to destructive uses. Even if you don't hunt, you should probably be an active, outdoorsy person to get the best out of this breed.
