Possible adoption - Guess the mix!

If you are wondering what is the right dog for you, this is the place to be. In this introductory forum we talk about topics such as breed vs. mix, size, age, grooming, breeders, shelters, rescues as well as requirements for exercise, space and care. No question is too silly here. This particular forum is for getting and giving helpful, nice advice. It is definitely not a forum for criticizing someone else's opinion, knowledge or advice. This forum is all about tail wagging and learning.

This is just for fun, and maybe a little for my personal dog education. My husband and I are looking to adopt a dog after months of searching and research, and we've finally found a dog that looks like a really good fit. Here's a few photos:

Buddy the Spaniel Mix

Buddy the Spaniel Mix 2

He's listed as a spaniel mix, which seems fairly obvious. But I'm really curious as to which spaniels, and what other odds and ends, might be in there. He's cocker-sized, but with a much straighter coat, and a different head. Also, he's a fairly low energy pup, which seems atypical of most spaniels. If anyone has ideas about what might be in there, I'd really appreciate hearing it! Thanks!

He looks like a Cavalier/Cocker mix... and looks to be the size of a Cavalier not a Cocker. If he has Cavie in him, that would explain the lower energy. He's a cutie though!!

He is cute, isn't he? I'm kind of in love. Now that you say it, I can totally see the Cavalier in him. That's great, as Cavaliers and Cockers are two of my favorite breeds (I'm a total spaniel person). The only thing that makes me worry about is maybe his heart health...


Playtime? Pretty- pleeease?
