Duke in MD's Story...
UPDATE 07/10/12: Duke is great inside and loves to cuddle and follow you around. He is good at coming when called and he is house broken. He is a quick learner and while in a foster home he was taught to sit and lay down when getting treats. He eats great and did not become aggressive with food. He is better right now without another dominant male and has trust issues with meeting new people the first time. Duke is ready for a forever home where he will shower you will love and attention. For grooming, he did pretty well, still little snippy because he’s not use to it, but did well on the whole. He has no major medical issues and he would be great for anyone that likes to walk and just hang out. He is kept in crate and did well while at work and not barking. Slept in crate at night and did just fine.

Hello everyone! My name is Duke and I’m a 4 year old black with white chest Cocker Spaniel boy. I am looking for a new home, as I was found wandering the street of Durham, NC. Fortunately for me the good people at CSAC are going to try and find me a new family where I will be safe, cared for, and loved forever!

I am quite a friendly little guy (even though I may start out a little reserved, it doesn’t take me long to warm up) and enjoy being petted and snuggling. I am a calm dude most of the time and would make quite an addition to most any family. I am a trusting soul who just needs someone to open their arms to me and let me be a part of a family once more. If you have room in your home and heart for a great guy like me, please complete an Adoption Application right so we can be together as soon as possible. Thanks!

The medical and custodial expenses of the numerous Cocker Spaniels in our care are tremendous. With the current economy, more and more dogs with urgent and serious medical issues are being abandoned. While we are committed to providing the best possible care for these luckless, voiceless dogs, the increased costs are beginning to take their toll on our ability to do so. What this means is that we are able to rescue fewer dogs, and in turn that means more dogs may be euthanized every day. Even if you cannot adopt or foster one of our dogs, please consider making a donation. We know that money is tight everywhere, but even just a few dollars from many people adds up. Think of those dogs still in shelters or on the streets – those without warm beds, full bellies, and the knowledge that they are safe. For just the cost of a few cups of coffee, you can make a tremendous in the life of one of our needy furballs. For other ways to donate, please scroll to the bottom of our main web page. The Cocker Spaniel Adoption Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization and your donations are entirely tax deductible. Please check out our Wigglebutts in Need at

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Duke in MD, a Westminster 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 Westminster, or seeking a Cocker Spaniel dog from a breeder in Westminster.

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