JOE COCKER's Story...
Joe is one of the sweetest Cockers ever. He was found in the park after being abandoned by his" so called owners." He was found, staying close to his constant companion by the name of Holly, who is listed with our rescue too.... In a perfect world I would love for him to be with Holly who was his companion but I know this will probably not happen and they will have to go their separate ways..They are already in separate foster homes.. Joe prefers a quieter home and someone who isn't away from home all day with a job. .. He wants to be with his people and becomes very attached.. Joe is truly a family dog..However he will do best with older children only and not tiny ones.. He enjoys so much having attention and love after going without it .. He is around 7 years old from what we could piece together about him.. This is an active boy who loves to run and play out in the yard on a sunny day. So don't picture a dog who isn't enjoying life...He does love to cuddle and be with his owners too..That's the main thing in life Joe enjoys...We do know that he has not had the most loving life in the past .He has really blossomed since being at his foster home and does do well with their other dog.. He would do best with one other dog as his companion.. .. . He is a mellower guy and loves to climb in to the fosters lounge chair during time in front of the tv.. He would be fine with or without another dog as long as someone was home with him more than without. .I would say one dog would be best, maybe two, but they would have to be mellow like Joe is.. He would also do best in a home where he would not have to be crated. He simply does not like a crate and Joe is housebroken. Joe would make an awesome fit for a retired couple or people who could spend time with him. He was affected by being abandoned and worries he will be abandoned again. . .. He feels sad when left alone for long periods..So when applying please be someone who will have time to share with this sweet boy.
Joe does have a mild case of Epilepsy that requires no medication. No, this is not life threatening and yes he is in great health. He is not the first dog we have had and won't be the last. This is way more common in dogs then I realized. .It's not often that he has occurrences, but it does happen from time to time. He has been checked out by our own vet, and he said there is absolutely nothing to do, nor should he be on meds for this..They do not remember it when it happens, nor will it affect them..I am however trying a nautural sustance on him soon.. Just to see how he does.. As I said this is only something from time to time and not often at all.. Please don't let this stop you from adopting Joe. This is a wonderful dog and he too deserves to have a home of his own. He's done beautifully at his foster home and is a wonderful dog..
See Joe's best friend he was found with on this page. Her name is Holly.
