not really as she weighs 23lbs. anyway thats what the registered papers say. This dog is 11 years old has had one male owner and has bitten everyone that comes in contact for any time with her and i'm not talking a little pinch or scratch. Took my poms over and tried to eat one of them is this the kind of evil behavior of all this breed? Mental instability? Don't worry will never have my babies around her anymore just curious about this breed now. It's not her age she has always been this way. No cop out there!
That's not mini. That's simply a normal not obese cocker. My over height standard mill bitch american cocker is 23 pounds, and my show male is 21.
If you have papers calling it a mini cocker spaniel, it's papers fro ma registry not worth the paper it's printed on.
American cockers were totes as the perfect family pet for decades. They had the stop spot for all time high registrations for any breed for at least one year, and close to it other years. Between that and the popularity of lady and the tramp the breed has been back yard bred and used in puppy mills endlessly.
A poorly bred dog is a poorly bred dog no matter what the breed. Sounds like simply a poorly bred dog, sadly too many people meet poorly bred cockers and then think it's the breed.

It's flat out wrong and ignorant to judge an entire breed on one bad experience! Especially when your dealing with an uneducated, irresponsible owner and poor breeding! How sad that this owner never bothered to consult a trainer or behavioralist. I've had a bad experience with a Cocker myself, but I would never hold that against the whole breed.
I have 2 Cocker girls now one is 16lbs and the other is 34lbs, they are the sweetest girls not a mean or aggressive bone in their bodys, and I have 1 male and he is awesome he participates in Agility and loves everyone he comes in contact with. I have had 8 Cockers over the years and they have all been wonderful
