Facts about Henry in PA

Handsome Henry was found running at large in the Reading PA area with two other dogs. The area shelter picked him up and contacted CSAC. Our volunteer rescued him from the shelter and took him to her home.

Henry is black with a gray muzzle with some white markings on his ears and face. The shelter gave him a bath and grooming as he was severely matted upon arrival. Henry’s teeth have been neglected and he will require a dental by our veterinarians. Also, poor Henry only has one eye due to a surgery done by the shelter, as his eye was bulging out when he was picked up.

Henry will need a refresher on basic training, including house training. He also appears to have some separation anxiety. The records from the shelter indicate he was in a foster home with small children but was returned due to food and toy aggression. The shelter thought that the family was not experienced with those issues, yet with that he was labeled aggressive and put into an unadoptable area of the shelter. It is clear that Henry needs someone who is a leader and willing to work with him on his issues. It is not a good idea for Henry to go to a home with small children.

Our volunteer with whom Henry is staying has not seen any aggression with the other dogs in her home as she feeds them separately. She thinks he just wants to be underfoot and getting pets. There are some minor issues bumping into things from his blind side, but that is not slowing Henry down at all. She also said that after Henry was sprang from the shelter, he was very friendly with her and tried to climb onto her lap, sat for treats, and rolled over for a belly

About Cocker Spaniel Adoption Center Inc.

About Our Rescue Group...

The Cocker Spaniel Adoption Center Inc., unlike many other rescue organizations, opens our hearts and our homes to Cocker Spaniels (and "honorary" Cocker Spaniels) regardless of age or medical conditions. When you see the love shining back from a senior dog who has been rescued, or received little kisses from a dog so ill he/she can hardly raise their head, then you will know as we do, all dogs deserve to be rescued, healed, and loved. This has proven true for us over the many years we have been rescuing abused, neglected, and "thrown away" Cocker Spaniels. Because of our beliefs, our work is never done but our hearts are always full. We are an all-volunteer organization, so all donations and Adoption Fees go directly to helping keep these rescued Cocker Spaniels' tails wagging.

Our Adoption Process...

An Adoption Application is required on each dog. The application is available on our web site at www.cockeradoptions.org. A home visit and Vet check are performed for each potential adopter. Upon successful completion, the adopter is required to complete an Adoption Agreement and pay a non-refundable adoption fee of $300 (dogs 7 and under) or $250 (dogs 8 and older). All our dogs are spayed/neutered, up-to-date on their shots, and have been completely vetted. Our Adoption Coordinator will reply to applications or inquiries in a timely manner.
