The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel is an affectionate, gentle, and graceful dog who is categorized in the toy group of dog breeds. They have luxurious coats and come in four different color combinations known as Blenheim (chestnut red and white), black and tan, tricolor (chestnut red, white and black) and ruby (solid chestnut red). The Cavalier does shed, but for a coated breed, they are relatively easy to groom. They are considered a small dog breed with a height ranging from 12-13 inches for both genders and an average weight of 13-18 pounds for both genders as well. Their life expectancy is 12-15 years.
