Special Needs Cocker Girl due to Spinal defect issues. She has been in a foster home and they have officially adopted her.
Meet Maggie, a black n tan-sable colored 4 year old cocker spaniel girl. She was an owner surrender to a NC shelter with her family saying that she is not good with other dogs. They said she has aggressive/possessive issues and they didn't want to keep her. The shelter asked for rescue help to give this cocker girl a 2nd chance at a great home.
At the rescue vet, we updated her vet care issues and the trainer evaluated her personality to see exactly how to help her to be a better cocker girl. They found that she actually does ok around other dogs but if she feels like they will hurt her or corner her, she goes into defense mode. After X-rays and some other tests, we learned that she has a spinal defect that she was probably born with. Due to this news about spinal issues, we knew that she would need an owner who would know how to deal with her vet care needs if issues come up as she gets older. Luckily, she got an opportunity to do a foster to adopt trial and was placed into a home with a doctor from our rescue vet to see how she would do with her other dogs. After several days with this very nice vet family, we were told that they really cared about her, loved her for the sweet girl that she is and they decided to officially adopt her. This sweet, special needs cocker girl found a great forever home with someone who will go the extra mile for her if her spinal issues present more care, treatment and medications in the future.
