Male
Cocker Spaniel

Good with dogs (cats unknown)
Older kids ok
The dog pound is a scary place for any dog. But when you’re a blind dog, it’s beyond confusing and scary. Daddy was found roaming as a stray in Hartford. He was brought to the pound and found himself on his last day and nobody had come for him. Being a blind, senior dog in a pound full of younger and healthier animals can be a death sentence. But fortunately we were able to spare Daddy from this fate because a wonderful woman who has experience with cocker spaniels with vision impairments offered to foster him for us. After a consult with a veterinary ophthalmologist it was determined that Daddy’s eyes were extremely painful due to advanced glaucoma and on November 21st he had surgery to remove them. As awful as that type of surgery might sound – Daddy is a happier dog for it. He is still recovering in foster but will eventually be available for adoption. There’s a special someone out there who needs Daddy – and vice versa. He is great with other dogs, is completely housebroken and will amaze you with his ability to acclimate to new surroundings. Daddy is currently on a prescription diet to try to get some weight off those short legs! He loves to sit on his foster mom’s feet and take warm naps by the fire!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Daddy, a Hartford 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 Hartford, or seeking a Cocker Spaniel dog from a breeder in Hartford.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Hartford 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 Hartford 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 Hartford paves the way for another one to be saved.
