My name is Dash. I am a 4 !/2 year old, neutered black n tan cocker boy. I am an owner surrender from a nice family who loved me, but felt that they just couldn't give me enough attention anymore. I lived in a very busy, stressful household environment with children (they used me as a horse, so I would snap at them) and my owners were expecting their 4th child very soon.
I am a smaller male cocker boy, heartworm negative, shots are updated and I am scheduled to have a dental. I am on the thin side, possibly due to stress in my home and not eating well, but these folks are working with me to help me eat better. Best thing you can do for me is to be patient and understanding and help me to be comfortable in my new living environment, as there was another dog in my home and he wanted to attack me all the time.. I am a good boy with a nice personality and I will be a good companion for you to adopt and love. When I first came to rescue, I was scared of my own shadow and other things, but now I am feeling more comfortable and doing better. I seem to be decently house trained, as long as I am not left in the house for long hours. I will do best in a calm home environment with kids 10 and older. Because I come from a stressful past environment, I will do well with a family that already has a socialized, happy, friendly dog who would love a buddy to hang out with. This way, he or she can become my mentor so that I can learn how to be a good house companion and share a great rest of my life in a loving home with you. I Will Not Be Placed into an Apartment or Condo living situation. I am a sweet, friendly boy looking for love, understanding and someone who will appreciate me for the nice dog that I am. Maybe I could be your new best friend and sweet baby boy!
