MY ORIGINAL INTAKE INFORMATION: Hi Everyone! My name is Rocky, and I just arrived at CSAC. I was rescued from a puppy mill. I have spent my life in a barn or shed in a cage. As you can see in my picture, I do NOT like crates or cages, I have spent my life biting at the cage and rubbing my nose against the cage to try to get out. The best home for me has people who have dog experience who can help with my training and acclimating to the outside world. The people in my new home should be able to teach me the skills I need to be a great pet: walking on a lead, house training, and socializing. Right now, I am in the caring hands of one of the great Vets that work with CSAC. They are checking me out and making sure I am healthy. The vet is not sure if my nose hair will grow back. It will take time to tell. I do have a mild heart murmur - a 2 out of 6. I have mild luxating patellas and mild hip dysplasia or arthritis in my hips also indicating I spent my life in a cage with little to no exercise. The CSAC tranporter said that I am sweet and gave kisses. Hopefully, I will find my new family that will help me to understand that I am a cherished family pet, not just an animal to be used to make money.

The medical and custodial care of the many Cockers in our care is tremendous. More and more dogs are abandoned with urgent and serious medical issues. We are committed to providing the best possible care for these forgotten friends. Unfortunately, the mounting high costs are beginning to limit the number of dogs we are able to take into our program. Even if you cannot adopt or foster one of our current adoptable dogs, please consider making a donation. The Cocker Spaniel Adoption Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, and your donations are entirely tax deductible. Click the Donate menu at the top of the screen.
