The Cocker Spaniel’s Impressive Haircut “Glow-up” Delights the Internet


A cocker spaniel named Sonny has captured hearts online after a video of his “puberty transformation” went viral on social media.

The video, shared by the dog’s owner on TikTok, under the username Sonnywiththegoodhair, shows the tiny 2-year-old turning into a “beautiful” dog, with long golden locks on his fur.

The clip, which was previously published on the platform in September, has been viewed more than 400,000 times and has a caption that reads: “Puberty hit hard…”

Although now mostly just house dogs, according to the American Kennel Club (AKC), cocker spaniels were originally bred to hunt birds, especially the woodcock, which is where the breed’s name comes from.

The AKC says these dogs may have come to America on the Mayflower, as records show a mastiff and spaniel were passengers on the ship, which landed in New England in 1620.

Today, there are several types of spaniels, including American and English varieties. The main difference is that American Cocker Spaniels have rounder heads and more pronounced eyebrows, while English ones, like the dog Prince William and Princess Kate own, have longer muzzles.

Cocker Spaniels are affectionate with family and other dogs and make great companions for children, according to AKC. They are easily adaptable and easy to train and do not bark too much.

Cocker Spaniels are the smallest dog classified in the AKC Sporting Group capable of identifying cancer samples based on scent. One study found that a cocker spaniel named Tangle had the best success rate at detecting cancer, with an accuracy of 56 percent.

One TikToker debbierobb2005 wrote that the dog was “handsome,” while another Jillian_On_TikTok commented, “Can’t I be the only one who winked at him?”
