Zappa's Story...
Zappa is so cute and friendly, you could just eat him up! This gorgeous boy is a purebred American Cocker Spaniel who was originally adopted from us several years ago. Sadly, Zappa was returned a few weeks ago with some serious medical issues that needed attention. Luckily, ACL's wonderful doctor and a great foster dad stepped up to the plate to help, and Zappa is finally ready to go a true forever home. Zappa is 9 years old, but you wouldn't know it from his demeanor - he's active, playful, and very youthful. He adores playing fetch, and he'll catch a tennis ball for hours if you let him! Zappa is great with other dogs because he really just does his own thing - he prefers to be cuddling with his people. He's a sweet boy who will do well with kids 8 and up and other chill dogs. Zappa did have to have his right eye removed due to an untreated infection, but it absolutely doesn't slow him down. We think his constant "wink" just increases this boy's charm!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Zappa, a Oak Park Cocker Spaniel dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cocker Spaniel for sale in Oak Park, or seeking a Cocker Spaniel dog from a breeder in Oak Park.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Oak Park 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 Oak Park 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 Cocker Spaniel breeders who help with Cocker Spaniel rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Oak Park paves the way for another one to be saved.
