Question English Springer Spaniel?


We currently have a lab/dane cross that is a year old. The shelter called me yesterday with a 5 month old purebred Springer Spaniel (Field) that was surrendered on Friday. (Reason: Kids have allergies to the dog. )

I'm looking for a dog to do obedience trials with as well as for extra company for Wes.

Is this a good choice? My family grew up with hounds - I have no experience with Spaniels. I've read about hip/eye/blood disorders. How common are these? Should it stop me from considering this dog?

He's a little shy but warms up quickly. My dog has already met him and they seem to be fine together.

Any special considerations or advice?

Thanks so much!
