Where the American Cocker Spaniel Actually Came From
American Cocker Spaniels, believe it or not, did not truly even originate in the United States. The American Cocker Spaniel actually traces its beginnings all the way across the Atlantic Ocean to the European country of Spain, but it was the English bred Cocker Spaniel bitch that gave birth in the 1880's to the puppies that would later help establish the American Cocker Spaniel dog breed. Though, it wasn't until the year of 1946 that the AKC ever officially recognized the breed of dogs, the American Cocker Spaniels. Now, American Cocker Spaniels have since been by far one of the most popular purebred dog breeds throughout the entire United States.
