Oreo's Story...
Meet Oreo! He is a 6 yr old american cocker spaniel. Loves his ball, cats and being brushed. He will need consistant grooming. He knows some commands, "sit" and "shake" which he gives you paw and then you ask for the other one. Right now he is fostered with a boston terrier, a blue heeler and a pitbull, and does fine with all. His favorite position is "couch potato". A gentle intoduction and no roudy play to start is most comfortable for him. He does not like parks or busy roads to walk, he prefers a calm environment. He rides in the car with kennel or seat restraint very well. He's had 3 training sessions using BAT (behavioral attention training) and did wonderful. He does excellent with positive reinforcement using treats. Praise is his reward. He would do best in a home with a fenced yard. He sleeps in his kennel or on the foot of your bed very respectfully. He's a total goofball and wants nothing more than to be with his family. His new family should be able to see past his quirks, from a neglectful past, and work with him. He is a great dog, and deserves the family of his dreams. As his foster, he is a wonderful member of my home!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Oreo, a Bellingham 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 Bellingham, or seeking a Cocker Spaniel dog from a breeder in Bellingham.

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