Welsh Springer Spaniels are a rare breed. They are a mix of the English Springer Spaniel and the English Cocker Spaniel and were once popular among hunters. These dogs were not recognized by the American Kennel Club until the year 1906; in 1923 they formed their own club, and their numbers increased. However, in 2016 they were deemed an endangered breed. They are fast and agile when hunting and exercising, but when they have been properly worn out they are total couch potatoes. It's a win-win! You have to give them exercise which means you have to exercise, and only then can you lay around doing nothing. Your doctor would approve.
