Looking a bit like a cross between a Cocker Spaniel and a torpedo, Sussex Spaniels are long, low-built bird dogs of great strength and endurance.

The classic spaniel head, with its wavy-coated ears and big hazel eyes, projects a somber, frowning expression delightfully at odds with the Sussex Spaniel's innate cheerfulness.
