After deciding that we did not need and could not afford a puppy right now, my DH just called to inform me that he & DS brought a puppy home this morning. She is a brown female Cocker Spaniel/Lab mix (the owner called them Spanadors). She is six weeks old and was free but has not had her shots yet. Does anyone know anything about this breed, particularly as far as temperament? We had a very bad experience in the past with a Chesapeake Bay Retriever (very aggressive and terrible obedience problems), so I am kind of leary of having another retriever in the family, especially since we have two small children now and another on the way. I looked the breed up on dogbreedinfo.com, and it referred me to the descriptions of the Cocker Spaniel & the Labrador, both of which are supposed to have good temperaments, but I'm wondering if crossbreeding affects this at all. Anything you can tell me would help.
