Chance in PA's Story...
Everyone, please meet Chance, a buff colored cocker spaniel boy with a long, natural tail! Chance came to CSAC from a Morgantown WV shelter where he was turned in by his owner. Now it is our job to find this energetic boy a new home where he will be loved and cherished forever.

Chance had been staying at a temporary foster home. He was surrendered by his former owner claiming that Chance snapped at her. He has not snapped at anyone during his stay at the shelter or his temporary foster home, so we are not sure about his former owner’s claim. What we do know is that Chance has boundless energy and would need to be placed in an active home, preferably with another playful dog. No couch potatoes for this guy! Likewise, Chance may be too high strung for young children, so a family with older children is advised.

Chance likes both men and women - he has not been child or cat tested. He also seems to be fine with dogs of any size. Chance is fully housebroken, very puppy-like, and didn’t bark much at his temporary foster home. He will require structure and positive reinforcement training to polish his manners. He pulls quite a bit on the leash so an experienced dog family should be able to teach him how to properly walk on a leash.

Chance is a very sweet dog who needs someone who is willing to take time and work with him. In return, you will get a loving furry companion and best friend.

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

Chance in PA, 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.
