Wisconsin: American Water Spaniel

Thanks to Lyle Brumm, a teacher at Washington Junior High School, and hundreds of his students, the American Water Spaniel became the state dog of Wisconsin in 1985 — after years of students petitioning their lawmakers. The curly-coated sporting dog was developed in the mid-nineteenth century in Wisconsin's Wolf and Fox River Valley region.
