According to leading officials, the Welsh Springer Spaniels are the oldest of the Spaniards in Britain, descended from the original Spaniels of the Iberian Peninsula (derived from the Spaniel term "Spaniel"). Exactly how these dogs traveled from Spain to Wales in ancient times is one of the canine mysteries that historians see as "lost in the haze of history", but the Velshi-type dogs are a part of British art and Around 250 years BC appear in literature. Welsh and English Springers emerged as separate breeds in the early 1900s.
