★★ WALLY says "HELP!!!" ... I'm LIVING in a CRATE because my mom had a BABY, my PARENTS then DIVORCED and DAD left, my MOM WORKS FULL TIME -- and, well ... my LIIFE HAS FALLEN APART! ★★

My BIGGEST ISSUE and what landed me in a CRATE ... I just feel so envious of the toddler ... I was the baby here - and my DAD LEFT and I get NO ATTENTION -- so I started acting out by going in the house! I was in a CRATE - IN THE GARAGE - but the RESCUE trying to help me told my mom --it's TOO HOT in a garage -- that he must be brought in. And so, I am back inside now, but STILL in the CRATE.

Wally was adopted by his current family when he was 1 (born May, 2004). He has been a GREAT DOG and has had no significant issues in 11 years until the birth of the baby. And, add to that - the couple recently DIVORCED! So, Wally has LOST his dad AND has to contend with a 19 month old TODDLER who he obviously feels abandoned for. He LOVES his humans.

WALLY is VERY PLAYFUL (can play fetch for hours). He can be needy as he does like attention. He has lived with another cocker spaniel who is a few years older - and gets along fine. Fine with other dogs -- will sometimes bark at other dogs when on leash but never any issues.

He does not have a fenced in yard and gets almost no exercise. His mom feels awful but knows she has no time for him. The other dog is older and just likes to chill.

● LOCATED: West Babylon, NY - can be TRANSPORTED to approved adopter in the NORTHEAST
● 12 yo neutered male, cocker spaniel, UTD on shots
● Loving, playful (loves fetch), loves ATTENTION.
● DOG FRIENDLY (lives with another Cocker Spaniel)
● CATS unknown
● HEALTH -- requires ear cleaning/maintenance (typical of the breed); given that the behavior of going in the house (after the birth of the child) he is going to be evaluated for UTI/urinary issues -- although seems related to the toddler; otherwise, reportedly in good health and UTD on shots

About Road to Home Rescue Support - Long Island, NY

About Our Rescue Group...

Road to Home was started to be able to focus on animals in need and to provide support to local rescues. After years of working in shelters and with rescues, we decided starting our own rescue was the best way to do what we do best! We are a 100 percent non-profit and 100 percent of the money we raise goes towards animals in need. Our 5013c is pending. Here’s what we will focus on:

-Providing guidance and support for re-homing an animal.
-Providing medical attention, training, spay/neuter, and food/supplies to a homeless animal.
-Pulling an animal from a euthanasia list or from an unsafe situation and placing them in a foster or permanent home.
-Working with rescues and shelters to facilitate adoptions by doing home checks, adoption applications, and networking to find foster or permanent homes for animals in need.
-Working with rescues and shelters to coordinate adoption events, food drives, and fundraisers.
-Raising money through a Chip-In to help specific dogs with training, medical needs, and adoption.
-Raising funds that can be allocated to specific needs of other rescues and shelters (including medical expenses, training expenses, food, and transport) as well as pledging money to animals in jeopardy of euthanasia.
