#732 "Boykin"

9"H 7"W 7"D
Edition 65

The Boykin Spaniel was originally bred by South Carolina sportsmen to hunt ducks
and wild turkeys.   It is medium sized, slightly larger than the Cocker Spaniel and is
known for its rich brown coat.  Traditionally, the tail is docked, and the bred is easily
identified by the long, feathered ears that hang close to the checks.  The web-toed
dog has a very sweet disposition, is impressive in the field and makes a great pet.
It is the state dog of South Carolina.
