This cocker has a great personality and will do well in a calm home with children 10 and older.
Meet Dash, a 4 !/2 year old, neutered black and tan cocker boy. He is an owner surrender from a nice family who loved him, but they just couldn't give him the attention he deserved. He lived in a very busy, stressful household environment with children (they used him as a horse, so he didn't like it and would snap at them) and his owners were expecting their 4th child.
He is a smaller male cocker boy, heartworm negative, shots are updated and a dental is scheduled. He is on the thin side, possibly due to stress in the home and not eating well, but we are working with him to eat better. Best thing you can do for him is to be patient and understanding and help him to be comfortable and adjust to a new living environment. There was another dog in his home that constantly wanted to attack him, so he didn't do well with that situation. He is a good boy with a nice personality, will be a good companion and really needs your love. When he first came to rescue, he was scared of his own shadow and other things, but now he has settled in and is more comfortable. He seems to be decently house trained, as long as I you do not leave him in the house for long hours. He will do best in a calm home environment with kids 10 and older. Coming from a stressful past environment, he will do well with a family that already has a socialized, happy, friendly dog who would love a buddy to hang out with. This way, he or she can become his mentor and he can learn how to be a good house companion and share a great rest of his life in a loving home with you. He Will Not Be Placed into an Apartment or Condo living situation. He is a sweet, friendly boy looking for love, understanding and someone who will appreciate him for the nice dog that he is. Maybe this wonderful cocker boy is the new best friend you have always wanted and he can be your sweet baby boy too!
