History of our Dogs

We breed excellent quality AKC registered, field-bred English Springer Spaniels.  English Springer Spaniels come in 2 primary colors Black & White and Liver & White. Ours are Liver & White.  Our utmost concern is the health of our dogs. We offer a 1 year health guarentee.  All of our dogs are OFA hip and eye certified by Auburn University. Our goal is to be one of the best breeders in the Southeast by searching out and bringing together the best field champion bloodlines available in the U.S.  Whether you're looking for a pet, a hunting buddy, or both, we have the perfect companion for you.  

Springers are an incredibly intelligent and affectionate breed. They make great family pets & are also excellent hunters - great for both kids and adults. We only breed Spaniels and we are dedicated to the betterment of the Spaniel breed.  We breed for excellent quality, wonderful temperments, great personalities, athleticism and beauty.   We believe you will never find a dog more loyal, trustworthy, easy to train, and kind at heart.
 
We are located near Lynchburg, VA, less than two hours from Roanoke, Charlottesville, Richmond & Greensboro.

What Our Owners Are Saying after Taking Our Dogs Home...

"Our vet was very impressed with Dolly and your breeding care of her. She was very happy with how well proportioned and friendly Dolly was. The vets said they would recommend you should anyone ask for a Springer Spaniel puppy breeder. Dolly is truly in our hearts as a key member of the family. She has adjusted and settled in so well. We are signed up for puppy kindergarten and are amazed at how quickly she learns and how eager to please she is."      -Ronan & Claire McCabe, Georgia

"It would be so nice to see another litter of Jackson and Maddie. Baron has such an excellent personality and he is so attentive and smart, he challenges me! Baron "told" me today he really wishes he had a sister. Let us know when you are expecting the next litter!"  
 -Christopher & Fiona Hopkins, New York

"Meet the newest member of our clan. We can hardly wait to welcome her into our family next week. For now, Christy, Jeff and family of Southern Springers will be lavishing her with snuggles in our absence. (4 months later...) Gemma Belle!...oozing with personality and smarts. She's a fantastic family member with unending energy. She loves swimming and trips to the farm!"  - Marty & Jamie Lockard, Kansas

"Mr. Heart is smart, sweet & loyal. He wants to be close to his people all the time! He couldn't be better! He really truly is such a sweet boy and snuggler!  He is awesome!  -The Rust Family, Kentucky
