Purebred buff male cocker spaniel approximately five years old

mail came to us with food aggression, leash aggression, and possessive of toys! .  all of his problems appear to be a result being allowed t poo ne the leader in his home. Within a few days of being with us all of those naughty behaviors stopped.   He still barks at strangers from his kennel if we are not right there to tell him not to.


Mel is a very loving dog and knows all his basic commands.  He is eager 2 please, and is much happier in a submissive position. Mel needs an owner that knows how to be the boss without being mean.


This great dog is all ready for a new home!   The adoption donation of $200.00 pays for this dog's medical care & also contributes to the medical care needed by other dog's that come into our rescue. (some dogs need hundreds of dollars worth of care to make them adoptable)  Why purchase a dog for hundreds of dollars (that still needs vaccinations & neutering & microchip) when you can get this darling dog that already has everything and help other dogs at the same time???   Every life is precious!  Thank you for your support.

Call us at 805 674-1236 to make an appointment to see our fosters.. 9:00am - 6:00 pm California time please!

About Short N Sweet Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

The Short N Sweet Ranch, altho primarily a horse ranch, has opened its acres to homeless dogs that are looking for that perfect forever home.

We are a member of the Rescue Alliance of Hairless & Other Breeds Which is a group of dedicated rescuers that foster animals from shelters and occasionally for people who need to place their animal into rescue.

Our potential homes are screened & you must be willing to answer questions about your home & life so we can make a perfect match.

All homes must be willing to come out to meet their new dog...I won't ship & hope it works out.

I also require that all adopters have spayed or neutered ALL their current dogs and cats.

If you see a dog here that you like, please email me.

We will require that you fill out an adoption applications & list references. An adopton contract will also be required at the time a match is made.

Adoption fees to vary slightly, but will be around $200.00 as this is usually the minimum that we have had to invest in each dog to ensure his/her health & to spay, neuter, and vaccinate.

emailing us is the fastest way to get a response. If you are serious about adopting a particular dog, tell us something about yourself in your first email, it will greatly speed up the process!
