The English Springer Spaniel is a gun dog breed of dog used for flushing and retrieving game. This spaniel is an older breed, appearing in paintings as early as the 1600s. It is possibly the ancestor of most modern spaniels; springer spaniels and cocker spaniels were not recognized as separate breeds until the 1800s.

It has unlimited stamina and needs plenty of activity to focus its mind and to provide substantial exercise. Like many breeds developed for specific work, in modern times the show dog lines have diverged from working dog lines, depending on which aspect of the dog the breeders have chosen to focus on.

Its coat comes in a wide variety of markings even within a certain color combination. Black-and-white and liver-and-white colors are among the best known.
