The Clumber Spaniel is one of the breeds with no clear history. It is said they were bred by crossing Basset Hounds and the now extinct Alpine Spaniel. For the last almost 200 years they have been popular with royalty and the gentry of England. They are now on the vulnerable native dog breed list in the United KIngdom.
Note: I was lucky enough to have a friend, Cherilyn H., who has a couple of Clumber Spaniels. She let me use a few of her pictures and her photographer, Karrie Dollar, allowed us to use the picture shown on the Dog Breeds page, above and Nose Butter. Thank you both!
