It was not until 1970 that The Kennel Club in the UK recognised the American Cocker Spaniel as being separate from the English type. Yet, although several programs are undergoing to promote pet adoption, less than a fifth of the owned dogs come from a shelter.. The early ancestors of this breed came from England, where until the first part of the 19th century, the Bulldog was bred in England. The American Foxhound is known to originate from the states of Maryland and Virginia, and is the state dog of Virginia.[1] Though there has long been a rumor that the new breed was originally used for hunting Indigenous peoples of the Americas, this is not true. By the 1920s the English and American varieties of Cocker had become noticeably different and in 1946 the AKC recognised the English type as a separate breed. George Washington received French Foxhounds, Grand Bleu de Gascogne, (which look much like an American Bluetick Coonhound) as a gift from the Marquis de Lafayette. With the importation (or migration) of the red fox, Irish Foxhounds were added to the lines, to increase speed and stamina in the dog, qualities still prevalent in today's dogs.

Interesting facts about Dogs

Yet, although several programs are undergoing to promote pet adoption, less than a fifth of the owned dogs come from a shelter.. Dogs have been selectively bred for thousands of years, sometimes by inbreeding dogs from the same ancestral lines, sometimes by mixing dogs from very different lines.[1] The process continues today, resulting in a wide variety of breeds, hybrids, and types of dog. Bulldogs pictured as late as 1870 resemble contemporary American Staffordshire Terriers to a greater degree than present-day Bulldogs. These dogs began to find their way into America as early as 1870. It was not until 1970 that The Kennel Club in the UK recognised the American Cocker Spaniel as being separate from the English type. Some writers contend it was the White English Terrier, Fox Terrier, or the Black and Tan Terrier that was crossed with the Bulldog to develop the Staffordshire Terrier; all three breeds shared many traits, the greatest differences being in color, and spirit. The American Staffordshire Terrier should give the impression of great strength for his size, a well put-together dog, muscular, but agile and graceful, keenly alive to his surroundings.
