History

English Water Spaniel (Water Dog) It is a breed of dog that has been extinct since the first part of the 20th century, fue visto por última vez en la década de 1930. Is of English origin.

He was very famous for his skill in hunting waterfowl and being able to dive like a duck. Se describía como similar a un Collie or a cross between a Poodle and Curly-coated Springer Spaniel y por lo general era de color blanco con manchas color hígado o marrón.

The English Water Spaniel is prior to Irish Water Spaniel (Whiptail). Historians of the race, They claim that they have been mentioned by Shakespeare en su obra “Macbeth”, and they believe that they have influenced genetically in several modern dog breeds, including therein to the American Water Spaniel, the Curly-coated Retriever and the Field Spaniel, Although it is unknown if the race was involved in the creation of Irish Water Spaniel.

In 1570, the Dr. John Caius wrote a description of the English Water Spaniel. But the race is officially mentioned by name in 1802, en el “Sportsman’s Cabinet” (organization that nuclear all hunting sports), where they describe the English Water Spaniel como un perro “natural hair is long and curly, and compact, not loose and messy”, la descripción fue acompañada de un grabado en el que aparecía un English Hair Spaniel color blanco con manchas hígado. This shows that the English Water Spaniel is prior to Irish Water Spaniel, not developed as a breed recognized until the Decade of 1830.

During the first half of the 18th century, the English Water Spaniel It was used for hunting ducks in East Anglia.

The Kennel Clubinitiallytenía una clasificación específica en la que se agrupaban todos los “Non-Irish water dogs”. Ese estándar fue creado específicamente para el English Water Spaniel by Hugh Dalziel in one of his books dedicated to the races of water dogs.

En un artículo suyo publicado en el año 1897, Hugh Dalziel, ensured that, no creía que la raza se hubiese extinguido, on the other hand, aseguraba que aún había muchos ejemplares de la raza distribuidos a lo largo y ancho del país, and keeping alive the race passed through motivate breeders from the most important clubs and canine committees, in the perpetuation and improvement of the breed. But later, Dalziel, regretted the fact that while the Irish Water Spaniel became famous, the English Water Spaniel was absorbed by other breeds of spaniel, under the eye of the most important clubs and canine committees, until you reach the extinction…

In 1967, the author John Fawcett Gordon (y político de Irlanda del Norte) decía: “Después de dos siglos de cría el English Water Spaniel has become extinct. No se ha vuelto a ver ningún ejemplar en los últimos treinta años”.

At least, It is believed that the English Water Spaniel ha dejado su legado en razas descendientes…

Some authors include within these races the American Water Spaniel which was also developed using additional genetic material from the Irish Water Spaniel and of the Flat-coated Retriever. The Curly-coated Retriever is considered to have descended from Poodle, of the Setter, of the extinct St. John’s Water Dog and of the English Water Spaniel.

The records for the origin of the modern breed Field Spaniel are more precise and show that one of the four parent dogs used in the creation of the breed was a English Water Spaniel crossed with a Cocker Spaniel officially registered as a Sussex Spaniel, debido a sus manchas color hígado. ¿Es lioso, truth?

Physical characteristics

The English Water Spaniel se parecía más a una versión de pelo rizado del Springer Spaniel, with some features of the Collie, Pudelhund, and Setter.

De pelo blanco y manchas color hígado (brown), medían unos 51 cm in height to the cross. They were thin, de patas largas características de algunos Spaniel, with the tail and long ears, White under belly and Brown dorsum. With a head long and narrow small and those long ears covered with thick and very defined curls. The body was moderately thick, barrel-shaped, but not as much as the Field Spaniel.

Due to the colors of the English Water Spaniel (hígado o marrón y blanco), it has been suggested that breed may have been the source of the colors that modern breeds have English Springer Spaniel and Welsh Springer Spaniel.

    History

    The name of "English White Terrier” fue inventado y adoptado a comienzos de 1860 by a group of breeders willing to create a new breed of dog, inspirados en los típicos Terrier de trabajo pero con una mayor agudeza de oído. This premature intention was born later the Fox Terrier, the Jack Russell Terrier, the Sealyham terrier and, later, in United States the Boston Terrier and the Rat Terrier.

    With the passage of time (and not much) the authorities of the Kennel Club they decided that the English White Terrier, debía ser considerado como una raza y fue admitido, pero la gran cantidad de problemas genéticos del perro llevaron a que su popularidad cayera en picado…

    All these vicissitudes led to the life and history of the English White Terrier, durara muy poco… a los 30 years of appearing on the stage of the Kennel Club, the English White Terrier había caído en la extinción. However, before disappearing was crossed with the English Bulldog generando así los primeros albores de las razas Boston Terrier and Bull Terrier.

    In fact, working and small Terrier breeds have existed at least since the end of the century in United Kingdom 18. These dogs have always been very variable in size and shape, podían encontrarse perros Terrier with a height at the withers that ranged from 25,4 and 31 cm., con las orejas caídas u orejas rectas, de capa lisa o pelo duro…

    With the rise of the show ring over the years 1860, enthusiasts of the new races that were emerging, they made possible by naming them and improve them, the Terrier were the first of their lists. A partir de allí fueron naciendo perros Terrier de trabajo que hoy conocemos como Fox Terrier, Jack Russell Terrier, Parson Russell Terrier and Sealyham terrier.

    In the vortex of creation and claim of new dog breeds, los diferentes grupos criadores competían despiadadamente, a veces ponían nombres distintos para una misma raza, también era una práctica común inventarse historias sobre razas –totalmente- fictitious they advertised as part of a campaign by declaring a new strain of a race, or a new race, eso daba cierta distinción personal y caché al criador y por supuesto… sus ventas subían. Ese era el verdadero sentido…

    Physical characteristics

    In 1894, for as long as he English White Terrier finally disappeared from the scene of the canine clubs (que siempre fue más bien una mascota de compañía y perro de exposición, as a working dog) a scholar of the race, Rawdon Lee Briggs, señaló que “los últimos ejemplares vistos en Londres, eran de tipo “Toy”, small dogs that were not above the 7 kg, with a rounded skull, o los llamados ‘cabeza de manzana’, lo cual se debería a un efecto de la endogamia”. Según el estándar oficial, the English White Terrier weighed between 6 and 9 Kg.

    Lee described the English White Terrier como “el más frágil y delicado de todos nuestros Terrier. No es el típico acompañante de un deportista, pero sí es un perro ideal para habitar en una casa bonita, en la que reciba una considerable cantidad de mimos y cuidados”.

    Though 1894 el perro aún seguía existiendo, la gente vinculada al mundo canino podía ver ante su ojos que la posible extinción del English White Terrier era ya una cruda realidad… Pero lamentando la decadencia de la raza, se consolaban pensando que quizá debían dar lugar a nuevas razas (assuming the inevitable), and they thought developing breeds better adapted to the needs and comforts of the historic present.

    There was, a male specimen of the breed English White Terrier born in 1876, He was very famous, was owned by Alfred Benjamin, se llamaba ‘Silvio’. Se considera al día de hoy una muestra fidedigna y privilegiada de la raza.

    In 1877, Silvio fue el campeón de un evento de ‘Conformation Show’ (Demonstrations of conformation, also known as a demonstration race), is a competition, o bien… un evento en el cual un juez familiarizado con una determinada raza de perro, evalúa individualmente a cada ejemplar y determina cuáles perros son de raza pura o bien, which conform to the breed standard. Silvio I weighed nineteen kilos.

    Esa exposición se llevó a cabo en el “Royal Agricultural Hall” en el año 1878, en lo que hoy conocemos como el l “Business Design Centre” que es un centro de exposiciones sito en el distrito de Islington, in London.
