Lucy's Story...
Hi there, my name is Lucy. I am a 1 year old Spaniel mix. I was found at a high kill shelter because I was brought in as a stray. I don’t know why I was stray. Nobody knows. Just some nice Rescuer saw my sad face in the shelter and they saved me. But I’m not sad anymore! Now I am in a foster home where I don’t have to be in a cage but in a really nice home. There’s another dog that I can play with and he’s teaching me how to be a City dog. See, before I was a Country dog. I am learning so many things in my foster home. I am learning about new sounds, sights plus all the new things dogs have to learn like my basic commands and oh that tough one – potty training. But I am getting the hang of that one because I really like it when my foster Dad praises me. I see the disappointment in his face when I have an accident so I try really hard to not disappointment foster because Daddy he loves me so much for saving me. I love it when we go for our walks. I walk really well on my leash. I like it when people stop to pet me and say what a pretty girl. I like it when I get to hop on furniture and be next to people. That’s when I share all my kisses and boy do I like to give kisses. I like it most when I when I am on my foster Dad’s lap. I feel so loved & safe. I know I have so much to learn but if you give me time, patience and structure – just like I am getting now I will learn I will be the best girl ever. I can live anywhere – the City (where I am living now), the Suburbs or the Country. Just don’t let me become a stray again, okay? Please come meet me! To do that you have to fill out an adoption application, please no phone calls. Go to: Kisses, Lucy.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Lucy, a Palatine Spaniel (Unknown Type)/Cocker Spaniel dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Spaniel (Unknown Type)/Cocker Spaniel for sale in Palatine, or seeking a Spaniel (Unknown Type)/Cocker Spaniel dog from a breeder in Palatine.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Palatine already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Palatine breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Spaniel (Unknown Type)/Cocker Spaniel breeders who help with Spaniel (Unknown Type)/Cocker Spaniel rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Palatine paves the way for another one to be saved.
