American Cocker



            He can't hold back his hunting instincts, but
            he is curious and appreciates a trip in town,
            and will be happy to walk to the leash.
            Good-natured, easy to educate, obedient,
            loves to play both on work both at home. It is
            the smallest among the Cockers, but is com-
            pact and placed well. Available in a great vari-
            ety of solid colors, as well as parti-color.
            The term "cocker" was used referentially to the
            woodcock, a bird that seemed attract this
            breed a lot. Often confused with his English
            cousin, the American yes descends from the
            relative but it was created in America and not
            imported from England.
