Posted Breed: Cocker Spaniel (medium coat). Owen is the ultimate hiking buddy! He is around 6 or 7, very active, and up for anything. Loves to ride in the car with you to run errands or to the dog park! Especially to the dog park. Owen seems to really warm up to Men more than Women, and that's OK! Owen is a funny guy: he is not a needy dog; he does not cuddle. He is independent. We think he is part cat. He likes to sleep by himself, and keep to himself. He is very good with other dogs, but doesn't like submissive dogs and will chase them. We believe Owen was physically abused earlier in life and therefore does not like to be touched without solicitation. In other words: he'll let you know when he wants love. He does not do well with children. Owen would do well with an adopter (male?) who can read doggie body language and can spend time with him for a period of time before adoption. An experienced dog owner who has other dogs and doesn't need a "snuggle bug". To learn more about Owen, please check out his bio here: http://www.campcocker.com/owen If you are interested in meeting Owen, please read our adoption process here before submitting your application: http://www.campcocker.com/adoptionprocess Thank you so much for your support of animal rescue!

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.

      FOSTER HOMES...

      Breed: Cocker Spaniel
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: USA
      Posted Breed: Cocker Spaniel (medium coat). Camp Cocker Rescue needs foster homes! We are looking for foster homes in the Los Angeles/ Ventura County and San Francisco areas. A foster home is a temporary home for a dog who is up for adoption. We provide the food and medical care; you provide the love and attention. We have FABULOUS dogs in boarding who would be SO HAPPY to be in a home. You can read more about fostering and fill out an online application here: http://www.campcocker.com/fostering -------- When you become a foster parent, that opens up a spot in boarding for another dog, which means that we can rescue a new dog from a shelter. Taking a foster dog into your home can save another dog's life! Fostering a dog is very rewarding for a foster parent because you become part of your foster dog's journey from shelter to permanent home. It's rewarding for us too, because when a dog enters a foster home, we learn valuable information about how the dog acts in a home (which is not always the same as in boarding). This information helps us to get to know the dog better and do a better job matching the dog to the right adopter. We are so grateful for our foster homes and are always looking for new ones. We really appreciate anyone who has a desire to help in animal rescue by fostering a dog, however there are a few requirements we ask of our fosters: · Our fosters must live within an hour of the general Los Angeles or San Francisco Area This is so that they are within driving range of one of our trusted vets should the need ever arise Our fosters must be available to foster a minimum of 6 months. The move from rescue to various owners can be very confusing and even traumatic to some dogs, we aim to minimize the stress level of the dogs by limiting how much they have to relocate if necessary Our fosters must be prepared to release the dog upon adoption. We understand that it is very easy, and even expected, to become very attached to an animal that you are fostering. It doesn’t take long for many animals to integrate and become an important part of the family. We know that it is heart-wrenching to see them go. But remember that we vet our adopters quite extensively and will only place them in a home we feel they would be very happy in! Every dog that we re-home, found their home because you were able to foster multiple dogs for us! Here are some thoughts from one of our experienced foster parents! As Forrest Gump says, "life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you are going to get". That is how I feel about fostering. Fostering is not for everybody and that's OK. ~Expect to be inconvenienced. Your dog relies on you for everything and this requires effort on your part. ~They are not self-reliant and they do not come knowing all the rules of your household. ~Expect to house train. ~Expect to put in some work with obedience training. ~Manage the environment so your dog will succeed. Your dog does not know he is not supposed to drink your soda that you set down on a coffee table and he does not know the difference between his toys and your Prada shoes. If he makes a mistake, it's your fault for not managing the environment and not properly supervising until your dog is reliable. ~You will get back tenfold what you give. Foster Application Welcome to the Camp Cocker Rescue adoption/foster application! Our foster application is the same as our adoption application. This is because many of our fosters become attached to their foster dogs and decide to adopt them. Please answer the questions on the application as you would for a dog that you were adopting (for example, Camp Cocker pays for medical care for foster dogs, but when we ask about your approach to medical care, we want to know how you would care for your own dog). We thank you for taking the time to fill out the following application. We understand it is quite extensive, and you will see as you move through the application that we are aiming to truly "match up" the dog to the adopter. You can work your way through the application and save it and come back to it later if you'd like. Please take your time in filling out the application (it can take an average of thirty minutes to complete). If you need to take a break and come back to it later, just remember not to close your browser window so that you won't lose the questions you've already answered. We assume that everyone who fills out this application has a lot of love to give to a dog and is really ready to make a life long commitment to a dog! We hope that we can find you a dog that will be a great match for you, but if we don't have a dog that is exactly right for you, we will try our best to guide you in the right direction. Thank you so very much for your time, your effort and your love of animals! We appreciate you! Thank you for supporting animal rescue! campcockerinformation@gmail.com www.campcocker.com
