Cavalier King Charles Spaniels are an intelligent small dog breed. They are among the largest dog breeds in the American Kennel Club's Toy Group. These beautiful companion dogs are always in a cheerful mood and are known for constantly wagging their tail (even when moving).
The breed is intelligent, agile, and has flushing and retrieving instincts inherited from it's spaniel ancestors. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel's dark eyes are often thickly traced by darker fur which makes the eyes look larger (similar to puppy eyes), generally resulting in a constant supply of petting and treats from its owners and strangers.
