ADOPTED! Both Angie and Maxie are every bit as happy and outgoing as they look in this photo.
Maxie and Angie are brother and sister and have lived together in one home their entire lives. Angie adores her brother Maxie and according their owner "she cannot live without him."
Both dogs are everything a cocker should be: they love to be around people, get tummy rubs and check out what's on the kitchen counter. Their current owner says they're fine playing outside in a fenced yard or just "chilling and hanging out" with people in the house.
This pretty Cocker girl has very long spaniel ears and a long natural tail. She has a "flat" coat (not as thick as some cocker coats) and feathers on her legs. Daisy needs a structured home with a predictable schedule and not a lot of friends and neighbors coming and going. She would do very well with another small playful dog or two. A fenced yard is a must. Daisy is two years old.
This pretty little cocker mix has her natural tail. Lucy was a stray found wandering the city streets. We think her background may have included abuse - at first she would cower when she heard a loud voice. She may also have been traumatized when she was in a crate. In the beginning she would lunge at the crate door when her foster would mom put her back into the crate but she was fine once she was inside her kennel.
But Lucy has come a long way. Now, after 6 months of talk and handling she has learned to trust her foster mom and only barks at her when she goes back into the kennel. She probably feels vulnerable when inside a cage so the obvious solution is to be adopted by someone who does not need to crate her.
Update: February, 2018
We rescued this sweet bonded pair in October 2016. The animal control officer found them curled up together on the side of a dirt road just waiting for help. They were starved, emactiated, dirty but so friendly and grateful for human attention.
Lulu and Sammy (we named them) are probably a mother and son bonded pair. Sammy wants to be with Lulu all the time and he cries pitifully if he cannot see her; Lulu is devoted to him - sometimes she'll lick him from head to toe!
ADOPTED Rudy is a wonderful boy! He is happy, healthy, playful, loves to play outside and likes to snuggle right up next to someone on the sofa.
His current caregiver says he looks and acts like a dog half his age - Rudy is 13 years old. He was just examined by a vet and everything checked out fine.
Rudy really likes children. He recently attended a gathering of 19 Girl Scouts and he was the hit of the party - he loved all the attention showered on him. He enjoys sleeping in his caregiver's daughter's bedroom on his own special blanket.
Happy ending 1-27-2017
We rescued 13 year old Sadie on Christmas day - great gifts really do come in small packages! She is tiny, sweet and indomitable - a real survivor. She adjusted to her foster home quickly, ate like a shark and slept on the best doggie bed. She gained weight and looks great. And best of all she was just adopted (Jan. 25, 2017).
Sadie and 12 year old Colby, her new cocker brother, already curl up together on their big comfy dog bed. Not a bad way to spend bleak mid-winter! Her mom says "She is the sweetest little girl."
Thanks to everyone who volunteered to foster Sadie at such short notice.
