Facts about Duncan

  • Breed: Cocker Spaniel
  • Color: Brown/Chocolate - With Tan
  • Age: Senior
  • Size: Med. 26-60 lbs (12-27 kg)
  • Sex: Male
Duncan is a precious little 10 year old boy who is just a big love muffin! He is good with everyone and will be absolutely stunning once his coat (chocolate with tan points) grows back out and he loses some weight. He was an absolute mess when we rescued him from a shelter, so we had to shave him all the way down. He had a little growth at the corner of his right eye, which we had removed when he had his dental. He could barely walk because of the heavy matting, and now he is so much happier and able to run around freely! You can see the difference in his pictures. Goodness! He looked like one of those bear ottomans! He is waiting for some special family to love him for the rest of his life and help him lose weight (he is about 42 pounds of love) by taking him for walks--shorter ones at first, then longer ones as he is able as he loses weight--and feeding him a special weight-loss diet. We would like to get him as close as possible to a more ideal weight of 28 pounds. He is very sweet and affectionate and has so much love to give! Please open your heart to him, whether by sponsoring him while he is waiting for his home or by fostering or adopting him!

About Cocker Connection

About Our Rescue Group...

Cocker Connection is a small, non-profit rescue organization (Tax ID #73-1653911, The Good dog Foundation DBA Cocker Connection) whose mission it is to save as many homeless cockers as we can in our area. As we do not have our own facility, we depend almost entirely on foster homes to help us with our rescue dogs until we can place them in their forever homes, though we do not always have foster homes and must then board doggies until one opens up. We are always desperately in need of foster homes, so please, please contact us if you are ever able to help by being a foster! Just think of it as babysitting for a friend's dog for a while. Some fosters are short term and some end up being longer.

We also have a sanctuary program available for some of our little seniors who are 10 years old and older. You adopt the doggie and provide the loving forever home for him, and we will cover any medical expenses for him for the remainer of his life.

We also work with some of the other Cocker rescue groups in Southern California, mainly Second Chance Cocker Rescue in Santa Barbara and San Diego Spaniel Rescue. Our doggies come from either their owners or from the myriad of animal shelters in the huge Southern California area.

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a facility, so it will be necessary to contact us to set up an appointment to see the doggie in which you are interested.

Our Adoption Process...

Cocker Connection has an Adoption Application and an Adoption Contract which are necessary for all of our adoptions. We also require a home check so that we can meet all of the people who will be involved with the doggie.

We do ask for an adoption donation of between $150 and $350, depending on the age and health of the little one who has been adopted. Our general breakdown is as follows: 0-3 years=$350, 4-8 years=$300, 9-12 years=$250, 13 years and older=$150. (It is less than double the cost if you are adopting two doggies.) All donations go 100% directly to the expenses for our little rescues, so this is not a price for the individual dog, but rather a donation to a non-profit organization to help all of the doggies. This includes all medical expenses (which can be considerable if the doggies need surgery or extra medical treatments or medications!), boarding when we do not have a foster home, grooming, high quality food, toys, beds, blankets, ID tags, collars and leashes. Without our donations, we would not be able to continue rescuing these little lost and abandoned souls. All administrative and transporting costs are donated by the administrators of this organization. With Paypal donations, every cent except for the 2.2% fee + $.30 that they charge us goes directly to the care of the doggies.
