Skamp is an 8-year old playful, happy go lucky, bundle of joy. He loves his toys – anything squeaky, fuzzy or rubbery, but especially round. He is a very busy boy and is a master of hiding his toys and then relocating them. Skamp is a little obsessed with toys, but not aggressive, unless you have 4 legs. He doesn’t want to share with other dogs (and potentially young children), but gets along fine if they are not interested in his toys. Skamp loves to play ball. He needs an outdoor space to ramble around and a fair amount of running around time (inside, outside or on a walk). He is a chewer and a rubber Kong is ideal for him, but tennis balls also work. Luckily, he appears to know the difference between HIS toys and YOUR toys. Skamp sleeps well in a kennel and does fine when left alone. He is a moderate leash puller. He rides well in a car once you get him in the back (tossing a ball in the backseat does it every time). Skamp will come, sit, lay down, and sometimes stay. In reference to his ball, he also knows bring it and drop it. Skamp has a precious little face that makes you want to love on him. He is a loving dog not a big snuggler. He saves snuggling for his toys. He prefers the “run by” pat, scratch, tummy rub, or lick on your check. He keeps going until he passes out in the middle of his toys. It’s guaranteed he will make you laugh every day. Skamp has no known health issues. He might prefer to be the only pet in the house, with no small children. His previous owner moved and couldn’t take Skamp with her. If you have room in your home for this friendly fireball, please contact ACSR. Skamp's adoption fee is $275.

Our Vision: Eliminate the suffering, misplacement and euthanasia of adoptable Cocker Spaniels.
Our Mission : American Cocker Spaniel Rescue's primary mission is to provide a safe haven to Cocker Spaniels who are at risk of euthanasia by providing short and long-term foster care, health care, breed education, sterilization, rehabilitation, and ultimately a suitable forever loving home.
Visits are by appointment. Please call or email to schedule an appointment to meet our adoptable cocker spaniels today!
Anyone wanting to adopt one of our cocker spaniels, must fill out an application (available on our website at www.acsrwa.org) Applications are reviewed by our staff; applicants that qualify are then asked for what we call a "home visit". One of our volunteers meets with each applicant and their household members at their home for a short interview. Each applicant gets an opportunity to meet with the dog to see if they like each other. Information about each applicant is then reviewed and an applicant is chosen to adopt a dog. A couple of weeks after a dog is adopted, a volunteer with check with the adopter to see how everything is going and if there are any problems, concerns, questions, etc. We are always available to help however we can, after the adoption is made.
