Correct Scissors Bite  | 15" - 44# |  OFA HEALTH CERTIFICATIONS

Some people buy a Porche for their mid-life crisis, but I got a show dog instead.  SUSSEX SPANIELS are a very rare, old breed, one of the original 10 AKC breeds. I met my first Sussex at a hunt test in 1999 and I was instantly smitten. I knew I would own one someday! 

Maverick is extremely smart, very affectionate and enjoys going places to meet new people.  He is fascinated by children and loves to give them squishes (Sussie face kisses) and be petted by them. He is wicked cute, loves to go hunting and has excellent bird drive. He is gorgeous, but his very best quality is his excellent, very gentle temperament and he is constantly making me laugh at his silly goofball antics. 

As my very first show dog, I am super proud of my little brown buddy and all we have accomplished in such a short time. In addition to being exclusively amateur owner handled to his CH-GCH titles, I also exclusively handled him to his Top 5 All Systems national rankings, multiple sporting group placements, 6 NOHS owner handler Best in Shows and #1 Owner Handled Sussex for the 2015 and 2016 point seasons.  He has been shown on a very limited basis, was never a campaigned dog and we never do more than 20 (total) shows a year. 

​Mav's versatility accolades are significant for the breed. He finished his CH, CD, RN, RA, RE and six legs of his RAE all in the same year. In 2017, the AKC recognized our Trick Dog titles from the super fun Do More With Your Dog training program, and he was granted the TRKA title for the Trick Dog Advanced level. He is currently prepping for Hunt Tests, his Open CDX obedience debut, training for agility, and we are both avid Barn Hunters!
