A couple new bird dogs in our home, both female, field bred English Cockers.
Very Nice Looking Pups!
A couple of adorable gals! Since they are field bred what are you planning on hunting with them?
Love them! I had s full bred English Springer Spaniel. She was the best dog I ever had. Man did she love to hunt. If there was a bird in the field/woods she find them. Besides being a great hunting dog she was a great loving house dog as well. It killed me when I had to put her to sleep.
We sort of hunt a little of everything and hopefully they’ll do the same. Some grouse hunting, a little waterfowl hunting from canoes and maybe retrieve a few rabbits and squirrels. Besides all that, FB Eng cockers are wonderful family dogs.
The light red pup is Piper, the black pup is still waiting on a name.
We had a red one when I was a kid, lived 18 years. Mean little sob!
An American cocker or an English cocker?
You know when it comes to cockers I really don't know the difference. Rusty looked like your pups and really was a nice dog. He just knew how to get over on me. He would run away and I would chase him all over the neighbor hood. When I would finally catch up to him he would turn and put the run on me. As we both got older I learned how to deal with him and he mellowed out some. But he still loved to run !
English cockers are sometimes called the Merry Spaniel because they’ve got such great dispositions. American Cockers not so much.
