Bentley is a 5 yr old male cocker spaniel.
He was surrendered to our rescue from his previous owner due to behavioral issues.
The owner said he was a biter, and she could not control him.
Her decision was made to euthanize him if a rescue would not take him.
Well, as often happens, when these "unruly" dogs come into rescue they don't demonstrate those issues with fosters/people that are familiar with this breed.
The foster and her husband who have Bentley are "well trained" in difficult cockers.
They have seen minimal issues, nothing that his previous owners did. He has been with them for a month now.

Here are the notes from his fosters.

Bentley would do really well with adopters that are home most of the time and if they have dogs hopefully a female in the pack
He really has clung to me and wants to be my shadow he goes wherever I go
He listens very well but doesn't know too many commands
He isn't a jumper and isn't needy he just likes to be right at my feet
He needs someone who has the time to spend quality time with him and is able to work with the little aggression issues he does have which are NOT bad at all if the adopters have male pups
I don't think there would be any aggression by himself or around a female
He has never been aggressive towards me or my husband
He may have been hit in the past with his previous owners only because he is timid when you pet him at times but he warms right up to you
He is really a great boy just looking for a companion

He is house trained but likes to be walked out to go to the bathroom
We have a fenced in yard so he is able to go out when needed but he will only go outside when I lead him out
He does well on leashes and loves car rides but he does not play with toys
We've tried fetch and he is not interested at all he just lays down
He could lose a few pounds as his previous owners mainly fed him from the table
He is now on a feeding schedule with my other dogs.

He doesn't jump on the couch and he will just lay at my feet
At bedtime he sleeps on his bed or under my bed.

We are looking for a cocker-savy home for Bentley, he is NOT APPROPRIATE for first time dog owners, and we prefer past experience with this breed.

Bentley is neutered and up to date on vaccines.

About Cherished Cockers

About Our Rescue Group...

Cherished Cockers Inc. is an Ohio based, all volunteer group of Cocker Spaniel lovers who help Cockers Spaniels receive the lives that they deserve.
We are funded by donations and fund raising events which goes directly to helping the Cocker Spaniels that have been rescued by Cherished Cockers Rescue.
We do not have a shelter; instead all of our Cocker Spaniels we rescue are living in foster homes.
Cherished Cockers and our volunteers are dedicated to rescuing, whenever possible abandoned, abused, displaced, injured, and surrendered Cocker Spaniels regardless of location, age or physical condition.
We then provide them with veterinary care and eventual placement in forever homes where they will be treated as family and receive the love that they deserve.
We also serve our community and adopters by educating and encouraging responsible pet ownership and the need for spaying and neutering.
Cherished Cockers does not discriminate against anyone for reasons of age, race, religion, politics, gender or sexual orientation.
