Hellfire Sussex Spaniels

 Sussex Spaniels are a rare breed best characterized by their beautiful golden liver color, and rather massive, long, low and level, body frame.   Although, adopted into the AKC as one of the first nine breeds, they are now classified as vulnerable for extinction, and their very existence is entirely dependent on the small, passionate group of preservation breeders, working to keep them in our future.


My background is with field dogs and hunting spaniels, and I met my first Sussex at a hunt test in 1998. I was instantly smitten and vowed to own one someday.


I hit the ground running with my first show Sussex, Maverick, winning 6 Owner Handler Best in Shows, multiple sporting group placements and consistent national rankings. Since 2013, I've finished seven Champions (CH), three Grand Champions (GCH), two Bronze level Grand Champions (GCHB), and have earned Top 5 Westminster invitations for Maverick, Frank and Marv.  Ten champions have been Hellfire bred since 2015. 

I enjoy training and competing to the highest levels in AKC Conformation, Obedience, Rally, Hunt Test, Tracking,  and Barn Hunt events all over the US. My little brown dogs love learning new things, and with patience and persistence, Sussex can make wonderful and rewarding versatile companion dogs. Our Sussex are FULL TIME house dogs. 


We occasionally breed our champion titled adults that have passed heart, hearing, eyes and DNA health screenings. All of our health certifications are public and sent to the OFA.  


We are planning a breeding for Summer 2020 with Maverick.
