NO PHONE CALLS: please fill out an adoption application and email it back to us to be approved. This cocker boy needs a calm, stable
adult home with no kids and no grandkids who might visit. He is strong on a leash so we suggest a secure, fenced yard area for him to do his business and play.
Meet Charley, a tri-colored cocker spaniel boy with a bit of mix in him. He is a few months shy of 3 years old. He seems to be mostly cocker spaniel, not really sure what else he is mixed with as he weighs about 46 pounds. Life for this boy has been a tough, rocky beginning as a youngster growing up. He has been bounced from home to shelter to home with no real chance to settle in and be happy. He was turned into a SC shelter at an early age, adopted out, turned back into the SC shelter and then adopted out again. This time an older couple adopted him. He was doing pretty well with them and then their grandkids came to visit. For whatever reasons, he did not do well being around them and would snap and bite at them.
He is heartworm negative and healthy. He is very strong on a leash and he does not like anyone messing with his feet. If you try to crate him, he will be a little hesitant, but he will go in on his own. Due to his unstable past, we feel that he needs to be in an adult only home with no kids and no young grandchildren who might visit. He needs an owner who is willing to work with a trainer to help him overcome the issues he has that need to be tweaked for the better. Since coming to rescue his foster family cannot figure out why he was having such a difficult time with others unless it was because they got a bit frustrated at his overly active, bubbly, tail wagging behavior. His foster mommy says she doesn't get why he would snap and bite because all of the triggers he had before, she hasn't seen any of it from him with her. Seems strange and odd, but if you are willing to give this boy a chance and won't give up on him, he would love to find his new home. Maybe he can be your best friend and a nice indoor companion. A dream come true for this cocker boy is to find a calm, loving home environment with a dog savvy owner who has no children or grand children who might visit. He needs someone who will go the extra mile for him because he wants a happy life too. Please give this nice boy cocker the 2nd chance that he deserves to be loved and wanted. He will enjoy spending quality time with you.
His adoption fee is: $350.
