The Welsh Springer spaniel is a medium-sized dog with a red and white coat, often with freckles. The coat is silky, naturally straight and flat to the touch rather than wiry or wavy. The downward-drooping ears are smaller and the body longer than those of the English springer spaniel. The eyes are medium to dark brown.
Welsh Springer Spaniels are predisposed to some health conditions, including hip and elbow dysplasia, hypothyroidism, and such eye diseases as entropion, glaucoma, progressive retinal atrophy, and hereditary cataracts.

The Welsh springer spaniel was developed in Wales, probably in the 13th century, for use as a hunting dog. The breed's history is similar to that of the English cocker spaniel, the English springer spaniel, and other spaniels that originated in Britain.
