If you’re interested in finding a beautiful, well-behaved puppy, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re interested in a puppy, consider the Boykin Spaniel, which was developed in South Carolina in the 1880s by Whitfield Boykin, known as “Papa Whit.” This breed has a wonderful personality, is a good retriever and has natural hunting abilities.
Boykin is a laid back dog who only barks when necessary. They live for 10 to 15 years, and they enjoy human companionship. It’s important to understand that a Boykin is an indoor dog, which means it’ll need a place of its own. Boykins are proudly attached to buildings and structures in the Historic District as well as other areas. These dogs can be found at the Pocotaliago Kennel, Sumter, SC. Kim Parkman will provide assistance with training.
A Boykin’s coat should not be more than one color. However, small amounts of white are acceptable. Its coat is medium-long to long and is flat and short. It’s also slightly wavy and flat. Its coat is short on the head and requires weekly brushing. Boykin skin allergies, hip dysplasia and cataracts are all possible.
South Carolina is the best place to start your search for a purebred boykin. You can find thousands of dogs for adoption at the Boykin Spaniel Retriever Club of America. Just make sure you crate-train your new puppy if you plan to leave him or her alone. Adopting a dog is an option if you don’t have the funds to buy one. If you have a family, or are unable to adopt a dog, a South Carolina breeder will have plenty of puppies for you to choose from.
