Posted Breed: Cocker Spaniel. Abandoned Angels has recently been inundated with many homeless Cocker Spaniels from various shelters, with more expected to arrive soon. All of these dogs were in imminent danger of being euthanized. WE ARE IN URGENT NEED OF FOSTER HOMES to house some of these dogs until permanent homes can be found for them. All of these precious babies will be up to date on vaccinations, dewormed, spayed/neutered and examined by our Vet, in addition to being groomed, prior to being placed in foster care. Abandoned Angels is committed to caring for the homeless Cocker Spaniels it rescues until they are well. By fostering a dog, you will help us to learn about the dog prior to its adoption and enable us to find the right home. You will also be invaluable in giving the dog an opportunity to trust and love again. Most of the Angels we rescue were either abandoned, neglected and/or abused through no fault of their own. We strive to restore their spirits, as well as their physical health, both of which have often been broken by human beings. Please contact us if you wish to become a foster family for one or more of our Angels. Due to a deficit of foster homes, some of our Angels must be boarded, which is not only costly to us, but also not the best situation for our Angels to heal emotionally. Even though our Angels are loved and cared for while boarding, there is no place like a home for them to truly feel safe and secure. Interested fosters will be asked to complete our foster application and a home visit by one of our representatives will be necessary. By fostering an Angel, you will not only help that particular dog, but you will allow us to rescue more dogs in need. In about 6 years, Abandoned Angels has rescued over 6750+ dogs, mostly Cocker Spaniels, although we will also take in other breeds when space allows. Please join our Abandoned Angels family and help us to continue saving these precious lives. Please help our Angels in waiting by opening your heart and home for just a week, a month, or perhaps longer, until they are able to find their true forever homes. Rescued dogs are very grateful for the love, food and shelter they receive and know when they have been saved and given a second chance. If you are not ready to adopt, please consider fostering or sponsoring one of our many Angels, who can be viewed at www.petfinder.com or on our website www.nyabandonedangels.com. All of our Angels thank you for your help. We look forward to hearing from you!

Cocker Spaniel

A.K.A. : American Cocker Spaniel, English Cocker Spaniel

More About Cocker Spaniel Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

      Location: Flushing, NY
      Posted Breed: Cocker Spaniel. Life is not all fluff 'n stuff. Just take it from Fluffy, a 5 year old handsome purebred male Cocker Spaniel (with a natural tail) who recently lost his home. When the family moved, there was no place for Fluffy, and he found himself alone. Fluffy took his loss very hard (he especially misses the young child in the family to whom he was deeply bonded). Fluffy is now coming to terms with his loss and beginning to feel better. His foster reports that he is startin g to wag his tail again and shows renewed interest in playing ball (once his favorite pastime). Fluffy is a healthy dog who is neutered, microchipped, current on all shots, and heartworm negative. He will be professionally groomed before adoption and will go home with a new leash and collar. If you would like to adopt Fluffy, please submit an application via our website at www.nyabandonedangels.com. Fluffy is currently fostering in Afton, NY (near Binghamton).

      Location: Flushing, NY
      Posted Breed: Cocker Spaniel. Meet Punky, a stunning black and white blue Merle Cocker Spaniel. The shelter where Punky was brought in as a stray reported that he is 4 years old but our vet thinks he is younger, more like 1-2. Punky has an adorable pink nose and beautiful baby blue eyes. With coloring like his, he's a real show stopper! Despite this handsome fella’s good looks, Punky requires special TLC because he is a deaf dog. Due to his hearing impairment, we are looking for a special home for him – preferably just 1 person – that has experience with special needs dogs and is willing to work with him. Punky does require some training and a low-key environment would suit him best, as he cannot be startled or approached suddenly due to his deafness. Will you be his saving grace? If you are interested in adopting Punky, please submit an application at www.nyabandonedangels.com . NY, NJ, CT, PA only for this angel.

      Location: Flushing, NY
      Posted Breed: Cocker Spaniel. Meet Miracle ... So named because we think it must be an Act of God that he's survived. Miracle came to our rescue a year and a half ago from Animal Care and Control of NYC, where he was turned in as a stray. He was emaciated and matted to the skin, with heavy dread locks throughout his coat. He was also suffering from a terrible gastrointestinal infection and horrible dental disease. Miracle is believed to be at least 10 years old and has endured a decade of neglect. Since he has been in our rescue, he has been fully vetted from head to toe and successfully gained his strength back. He is now a healthy boy just looking for a permanent place to call home. His personality now shines and he has discovered something he truly loves — toys. Because of this toy obsession, he doesn’t give them up easily and therefore will do best in an adult-only home without other pets (or kids) who may want to take them from him. Miracle is up to date on all his shots, neutered, microchipped, and heartworm negative. He will be professionally groomed before adoption and will go home with a new leash and collar set. If you would like to pamper Miracle and give him a loving home in which he can live out his life, please submit an application via our website at www.nyabandonedangels.com . Sometimes we all need a Miracle, perhaps this one is yours. NY, NJ, CT, PA, RI, MA, VT, NH, DE, MD, VA

      Posted Breed: Cocker Spaniel. FOR EDDIE'S SAKE! URGENT FOSTER HOME NEDED FOR A VERY SPECIAL BLIND & DEAF COCKER SPANIEL! They say there's someone for everyone, we hope this is true, for Eddie's sake! We are in URGENT need of a very special foster home for Eddie because he himself is very special -- Eddie is a blind and deaf senior Cocker Spaniel. Eddie is a former Abandoned Angel that was adopted out in 2008. Sadly, his mom has to move back to India to care for her aging parents. She is heartbroken to surrender Eddie back to our rescue, but believes he cannot handle the transition. Eddie is now back with our rescue, though unable to recognize us this time around. Eddie went blind from painful glaucoma and the vet who treated him during that time recommended that his eyes be removed. Over the years, he also lost his hearing due to age. Though Eddie is blind and deaf, he is very spry and has a zest for life. Eddie loves to be around people. He is very affectionate and loving. He navigates himself around the home extremely well and even gets on and off furniture to our amazement. His keen sense of smell takes over. He can sense when someone enters the room. Because of his medical impairments, however, Eddie can only be placed in a home with other dogs who are very gentle and do not mind him bumping into them. He is a very special Angel in need of a very special person to shower him with loads of attention and love. Could this person be you? If you would like to adopt this gentle soul in need of a new loving parent, please submit an application via our website at www.nyabandonedangels.com. NY, NJ, CT, PA, RI, MA, VT, NH, DE, MD Please hurry, Eddie is waiting for you!

That’s our girl! Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds is an incredibly sweet and playful darling of a dog. Though this 5.5 year old girl can be stubborn at times and prefers to be the only queen in her castle, She also has a bad habit of protecting the ones she loves and could use some behavioral training. Lucy loves going for walks outside! Lovely Lucy has been spayed, microchipped, is up-to-date on all shots, and has tested negative for heartworm. She will be professionally groomed before adoption and will go home with a new leash and collar. If you would like to take this beauty home and call her your own, please submit an application via our website at www.nyabandonedangels.com. In the meantime, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds will relax near a stereo and listen to her theme song while she waits for her new home to arrive.

      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Flushing, NY
      Posted Breed: Cocker Spaniel / Terrier / Mixed. This lil’ 8 year old doll named Penny is as sweet as pecan pie so we’ve named her Pecan Pie Penny! “PPP” (or “triple P” for short) is a petite Cocker Spaniel mix who was picked up as a stray roaming the streets of New York City. This pawsitively lovable gal weighs in at just 25 pounds which makes her even more precious! Penny’s legs are a tad short and which makes us believe that she may have some terrier in her. One thing is for sure, poor Pecan Pie Penny is completely blind with cataracts and glaucoma. We hope to bring her to an ophthalmologist within a week for a full exam. In the meantime, PPP gets around remarkably well by relying on her sense of smell, touch, and hearing. Penny is currently in a foster home where her foster mama says, “Penny lives in the moment and is happy and will be a real treasure for somebody. She just has so much love to give.” We think so too which is why we’re shouting from the rooftops, “Pick Pecan Pie Penny, please!” PPP has been spayed, microchipped, is up to date on all shots, and has tested negative for heartworm. She will be treated to a professional grooming and will go home with a new leash and collar. If you would like to pick Pecan Pie Penny to be your own, please fill out an application online at www.nyabandonedangels.com or email rescue@nyabandonedangels.com to request one.

      Location: Flushing, NY
      Posted Breed: Cocker Spaniel. Meet "Eclair Au Chocolat" (fondly known as Chocolate), our rescue's resident Pastry Chef. Like most Cocker Spaniels , Chocolate is rather food obsessed, however he takes it up a notch (like any great chef, he is more like "food addicted"). Although he will hoover up almost anything delectable, Chocolate does best on a grain free diet (recommended for all Cocker Spaniels), which is great for ears and skin. Chocolate is a very special boy (very dear to us) who is looking for an experienced Cocker Spaniel home. He is extremely loving and affectionate and a real glutton for attention (especially belly rubs), which he will reciprocate in kind with lots of Cocker Kisses. However he is also quite a sensitive dog who requires a gentle touch (any form of rough housing will almost certainly scare him). Chocolate is a bit of an older boy now (his age is estimated to be around 8) and has been waiting for placement for a while ... although he is a beautiful dog (chocolate merles are rather rare), many adopters have sadly passed him by in favor of a "younger model." As a fairly laid back boy, Chocolate will make a wonderful dog for a single person who is looking for a companion or perhaps a couple of empty nesters who are looking for a new Chocolate baby to love and spoil. If you are a walker, then Chocolate is just the dog for you, as he adores his outings to the park and is great on the leash. Chocolate is a healthy dog who has been neutered, microchipped, is current on all shots and has tested negative for heartworm. He will be treated to a dental cleaning as well as a professional grooming before going home, so will be starting out his new life fully loaded and on the right foot. If you would like to adopt or foster our little Eclair Au Chocolat, please email rescue@nyabandonedangels.com or visit http://www.nyabandonedangels.com/ , where you can complete and return an application on-line. With a daily dose of Chocolate in your life, things are sure to be a whole lot sweeter.

      Posted Breed: Cocker Spaniel. Meet Sammy, a 9 year old black Cocker Spaniel that was dumped at the shelter by his heartless family who claimed they did not have any time for him. This sweet boy was highly neglected in his previous home and came to us with one of the worst cases of fur matting we've ever seen. The shelter even reported that his ears were weighty and painful due to all the mats. Once he arrived to rescue, we quickly shaved him down and now Sammy's personality can really shine. Sammy is relaxed and playful. He's a bit fearful of large dogs but does well with all others. Because he once growled at a child in his old home when they touched his food, we are recommending an adult-only home for him. Sammy is neutered, microchipped, up to date on all his shots, and tested negative for heartworm. He will be treated to a professional dental cleaning before going to a foster or adoptive home with a new leash and collar set. After all that Sammy has been through in his lifetime, we're happy that his family gave him up because now he can finally begin the life he was always meant to have! Will it be with you?
