ALEX's Info...

ALEX's Story...
You'd never guess Alex is 9 years old. He is equal parts playful and energetic with loving and cuddly. He is house and kennel trained. He gets along marvelously with other dogs. We suspect he would do fine with cats and children, but have not exposed him to them. Alex learns routines and rules quickly from his 4-legged friends and would like to have playmates.

Alex patiently waits to be let out of his kennel in the morning and then he shoots out of his kennel and “dances” all over the house. When he gets excited, he exhibits signs of a bull in the china shop and his ears stop working. Once he gets over his excitement, he is wonderfully attentive and responsive. Alex really wants to please, but needs a patient, consistent pack leader to teach him the routines. When Alex is not on high speed, he loves to snuggle.

He loves squeak toys, balls, and especially squeaky balls. He likes to have his toys spread all over the floor, but he will bring his toys to you to be put away. Alex loves and needs to run, so a round or two of playing ball is mandatory each day. Alex has a watch dog sounding bark when people walk by or knock on the door. He is not aggressive or possessive, but he does jump and bounce when meeting people.

Alex has no known health issues. You can see more photos of Alex on our website: www.acsrwa.org If your home has a place to run and someone to play with, contact ACSR to meet Alex. Alex's adoption fee is $225.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

ALEX, a Tacoma 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 Tacoma, or seeking a Cocker Spaniel dog from a breeder in Tacoma.

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