Hi! Does any one here have a good link to history info on the Cav/King Charles?
I am SOOO frustrated as i read and readand there are so many contradictions!
By history i mean origin,before import to england.
Her is my understanding.. breifly! (Sorry..I hate not knowing!!)
The Cav type is THOUGHT to originate in japan,and can trace its history there back to 2000 BC.Also very popular in france before being brought to England by the Royal Family in the 1500's.
Short muzzles came in fashion and the cav type became the King Charles Spaniel.
Dog Fancier bloke visits England looking for the spaniels,but those he found didnt resemble the original breed,so the prize was offered at crufts and the Cav was reconized in 1945....
