My husband and I rescued two male Springers about 5 years ago. They were only used for breeding purposes for those years. We are extremely lucky to get two dogs who are as loving and affectionate as "Our Boys" are. They were never allowed to be out of their kennels and run and had severe heartworms when we adopted them. The boys love to sit by the fire whether it is in So Florida or in Ga. I am looking forward to sitting by them and being their companion for as many years as they allow.

I, myself love spinner spaniels. They are my favorite dog in the entire world!I am 14 years old right now. Recently, a couple years ago, my family lost our dog Madison.She was only around 10 years old.She was a spinner spaniel. To me, she was more than a dog. She was my best friend in the whole world!I remember when i was about 5-6 years old, i got upset with my parents for some crazy reason, so i went outside to play with Madison(my doggy). well she was asleep in her dog house, so i cralled in right next to her and fell asleep. We had a great nap. We were the best of friends, for as long as i could remember. And even though she's gone now, i can still look up, and know that nomatter what happens in life, i'll always have one Best, Best, Best, friend. I love her, and i will love her for as long as i live, and probably even after. I LOVE SPINNER SPANIELS!!! :)

My springer spaniel Jasmine does not bark at all, except if you run at her quickly or she gets too excited. The funniest thing about her is when the fireworks go off and she waits for the pheasant to drop! Bless her.
