The breed is a light to moderate shedder; however, they should be brushed on regular basis. The American Cocker Spaniel is a breed of sporting dog. Between hairless AHT to coated AHT or Rat Terrier, results are more variable and will produce mixed hairless litters to all coated litters. It was not until 1970 that The Kennel Club in the UK recognised the American Cocker Spaniel as being separate from the English type. The breed is the smallest of the sporting dogs recognised by the AKC, and its distinctly shaped head makes it immediately recognisable. As such, dogs are the only animal with such a wide variation in appearance without speciation, "from the Chihuahua to the Great Dane".[2] The following list uses a wide interpretation of "breed". Black pigmentation on the nose and eye rims is preferred, with only some pink allowed.

Interesting facts about Dogs

The breed is a light to moderate shedder; however, they should be brushed on regular basis. While dysplasia was largely unknown in Foxhounds, it is beginning to crop up occasionally, along with some eye issues. The American Hairless Terrier's American ancestry begins with the mixed breed terriers called Feists brought from Europe to the North America as early as the 18th century. Matings between hairless AHTs will produce completely hairless litters. It is one of several breeds commonly known as pit bulls.[2][3] In the early part of the twentieth century the breed gained social stature and was accepted by the American Kennel Club as the American Staffordshire Terrier in 1936.[4] The name was changed to reflect difference from the Staffordshire Bull Terrier of England. It is estimated that three-quarters of the world's dog population lives in the developing world as feral, village or community dogs, with pet dogs uncommon.[76] "The most widespread form of interspecies bonding occurs between humans and dogs"[103] and the keeping of dogs as companions, particularly by elites, has a long history.[109] (As a possible example, at the Natufian culture site of Ain Mallaha in Israel, dated to 12,000 BC, the remains of an elderly human and a four-to-five-month-old puppy were found buried together).[110] However, pet dog populations grew significantly after World War II as suburbanization increased.[109] In the 1950s and 1960s, dogs were kept outside more often than they tend to be today[111] (using the expression "in the doghouse" to describe exclusion from the group signifies the distance between the doghouse and the home) and were still primarily functional, acting as a guard, children's playmate, or walking companion. Early training and socialization both in the home and outside of the home is essential for this breed.
