This nice cocker boy is dog friendly, child friendly and good with children 7 plus years old. He had heartworm
treatment and a good recovery.
Meet Ian, a smaller male black n white cocker spaniel. He has a natural tail, is 3 to 4 years old and has a bit of a mix in him. He came to rescue with 2 other cocker boys thought to be his brothers from a local shelter. All 3 of them were alone and running loose until they all got picked up as strays by NC Animal Control. When no owner came for them, the staff asked for rescue help. All 3 of them tested as strong heartworm positive.
Besides needing heartworm treatment our vet found that his needs had been neglected for awhile. He was badly matted, filthy dirty, had skin issues and an ear infection. He also had ticks, fleas, hooks and whipworms. Shortly after coming to us all 3 of them developed a horrible case of respiratory infection, so we gave them medicines to get well. He had a dental and was neutered. Heartworm treatment went well and he had a good recovery. Now he is ready to find his perfect forever home. He must have been very loved because he is a friendly, gentle boy and just a real sweet guy. He loves human attention and love. We learned at a vet appointment that he is child friendly with children 7 plus years old. He will be a wonderful companion for you to love and share a great life with. Maybe he is the new best friend you have been looking for!
His adoption fee is: $350.
