English Toy Spaniels are the ultimate lap dogs, as they love to sit by their owners’ side. They are sweet, shy, easygoing and affectionate to their owners and those they are familiar with. They make a wonderful companion for the elderly.

The King Charles Spaniel is a small, sturdy, square breed with a deep, pug nose that is black with very well open nostrils, a well-defined stop, and dome-shaped skull. The teeth should be slightly undershot. The have large, dark round eyes with a sweet expression.

The tail is customarily docked.
