South Carolina: Boykin Spaniel

In the early 1900s, a South Carolina hunter named Whit Boykin took in a stray brown dog who turned out to have a great bird sense. Boykin crossed him with spaniels and retrievers to create a hardy retriever of upland game birds and waterfowl. Weighing in at just 25 to 40 pounds, the Boykin Spaniel is called “the little dog that doesn’t rock the boat” by admirers in his home state.
