JOEY2's Story...
Sweet Joey is an affectionate 3-year old copper-ish/red 25 lb. cocker spaniel. His photos do not reflect all the loving sweetness Joey has to offer. He is house trained and will use a dog door. He loves to go for walks and very good on a leash. He is also good and enjoys riding in the car. He rarely barks and gets along well with calm dogs, but reportedly chases cats. He will retrieve a ball and likes stuffed animals. When he gets bored, he will eat the squeakers out. Joey gets so excited when you return home, that he will jump on you until he is acknowledged. A small city could be powered with the energy generated by his happy tail-stub.

Joey is shy until he gets to know you and then is a friendly and loving companion.
Strangers need to wait until Joey approaches them, or he will run away. After someone is deemed acceptable he is friendly and sweet. In Joey’s world, children are loud and fast moving and frankly, they scare him. Many noises scare him – vacuums, hair dryers, pots and pans, and even loud sneezes. He will run to the other room and peek around the corner until the coast is clear. He also gets anxious when normal routines change.
Joey is a dainty, non-aggressive, non-obsessive eater. If other dogs eat quickly, Joey may need his own space to eat. The only aggressive bone in Joey’s body is reserved for rawhides. He will growl and snap if you take one away.
Joey is a loving, affectionate companion for a caring, patient family with a calm household and consistent routines. His previous owner had to give Joey and his canine and feline siblings up for adoption during recent financial difficulties. If you’d like an extra dose of canine loving, contact ACSR to meet Joey. Joey-2's adoption fee is $300. You can see more photos of Joey2 on our website: -- Photos courtesy of Gail Storrs --

Why Adoption is a Great Option

JOEY2, 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.
