Best Boykin Spaniel Pictures 2012

The precursor of the breed was reportedly a stray spaniel-type dog that befriended Spartanburg banker Alexander L. White around 1905. After the spunky dog showed an aptitude for retrieving, White sent the dog, called “Dumpy,” to his friend and hunting partner Whit Boykin. In Boykin’s hands this little stray developed into a superb turkey dog and waterfowl retriever. The popularity of the breed grew steadily and the Boykin’s ability in the field and amiable nature brought the dog praise in all forms. In 1977 the Boykin Spaniel Society was founded, with headquarters in Camden, and counted 2,544 human members by 2000. In that same year, the official Boykin Spaniel registry, begun in 1979, listed 16,285 Boykins in forty-nine states and many foreign countries. On March 26, 1985, Governor Richard Riley signed into law an act making the Boykin Spaniel the official South Carolina state dog.
