If you're looking for an extra shadow, the Cocker Spaniel is up for the job! These fun-loving loyalists who typically grow no larger than 30 pounds (13.6 kilograms) want nothing more than to follow you around. So don't expect a Cocker Spaniel to lie on the rug while life goes on.

This breed enjoys being part of a human family and is easily adaptable, two great reasons why adopting a Cocker Spaniel often works out so well. They're eager to bond and willing to please, and thrive when they can spend plenty of time with family members of any age. Cocker Spaniels can even be socialized to get along well with other pets that would normally trigger their prey drive, such as cats.
