American Water Spaniel

See American water spaniel video below

The American water spaniel was designated the official state dog in 1985 (selected by the citizens of Wisconsin ). An active, muscular and hardy dog, the American water spaniel has a crisp-textured, tightly curled or wavy outer coat and a protective undercoat. Colors include liver or chocolate, sometimes with a small white spot on the chest.
