http//animal.discovery.com/tv/dogs-101/#mkcpgnytapl1 | A stunning
dog in a short package, the Boykin Spaniel is the South Carolina
state dog and was developed to travel with hunters.

The official
State Dog of South Carolina, the Boykin Spaniel is a medium-sized,
all-around hunting dog with a cheerful, energetic personality.
Possessing a rich, chocolate-brown coat and charm to spare, the
Boykin is a favorite of hunters due to its willingness to work all
day as well as its smaller size, which allows the hunter to lift
both dog and duck into the boat at the same time!

In the early
1900s, a small dog was found wandering near a church in Spartanburg,
South Carolina, and one of the people attending services there, a
Mr. Alexander L. White, took the dog home as a pet. Mr. White sent
the dog to his hunting partner Mr. L. Whitaker Boykin of the Boykin
community just outside Camden, South Carolina and the little stray
developed into a superb turkey dog and waterfowl retriever.

The
Boykin has the stamina to stay by its owner’s side during a full
day of work, so it fits in best with an active family. The breed
also thrives on companionship, enjoying the company of children and
other dogs. Its coat requires only minimal maintenance beyond a
weekly brushing and occasional bathing.
