ADOPTED! ADOPTED! ADOPTED! ADOPTED! ADOPTED! ADOPTED! ADOPTED! 06/02/2024 - UPDATE - It has been an eventful few weeks, but Sammy has been making wonderful progress! After a battery of tests, our veterinarian feels that Sammy has one of two conditions. He either has a birth defect in his digestive system, or he has a mild liver shunt. Whichever he has, it causes his body to not process food correctly. Neither condition is something that can be fixed, just managed. He has to receive 3/4 cup of food 3 times a day to maintain his weight. After having Sammy on a high fat/high calorie diet, Sammy is now up to normal weight and normal muscle mass. All of his lab work is normal. Sammy will need to remain on Hill's Science Diet for sensitive skin and stomach. He is now a very energetic puppy who needs an active family who will continue to monitor his health, regulate his diet, keep him healthy, and love on him. MY ORIGINAL INTAKE INFORMATION: Hello, my name is Sammy. My owners could no longer afford paying for tests to try to figure out what is wrong with me so they asked CSAC to help find me a new home. I don't feel well and I cannot stand up well on my own. Right now, I am in the caring hands of one of the great Vets that work with the CSAC. They are trying to figure out what is wrong with me. Hopefully, I will find my new family that will turn me into a happy, cherished family pet again. Hope to see you soon. For more information about this dog, email our Adoption Coordinator.

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.
