The English Toy Cocker Spaniel is not a purebred dog. It is a cross between the Cocker Spaniel and the English Toy Spaniel. The best way to determine the temperament of a mixed breed is to look up all breeds in the cross and know you can get any combination of any of the characteristics found in either breed. Not all of these designer hybrid dogs being bred are 50% purebred to 50% purebred. It is very common for breeders to breed multi-generation crosses.
"Abbie at 2 years old. She stands about 11 to 12 inches tall. She has remained fairly small and really loveable. She still prefers to be touching me at all times. She is very much a snuggle bug and loves everyone, even strangers, whether human or other dogs. She doesn't bark a lot but will alert you when someone is at the door unlike our Pomeranian which barks constantly. She sometimes gets tired of his yapping and will whine at him. Her eyes do tend to "drift", I guess you would call it a lazy eye."
