Teddy in MD's Story...
Somehow, sweet Teddy found his way to the Baltimore Shelter after being picked up as a stray. CSAC took him in and Teddy is now thriving in foster care.

He is an extremely sweet, lovable guy. He has yet to meet a person or animal that he doesn’t like. In fact, he loves kids, dogs, and cats too.

Teddy’s favorite past times are playing with toys, going on walks, and snoozing on the couch. He is an easy going and fun-loving boy!

When you meet Teddy, you would barely know he is blind. He suffers from retinal degeneration that has led to just about complete blindness. But that doesn’t hold Teddy back one bit! He loves car rides, is housebroken, and crate trained. It doesn’t take Teddy long to map out new surroundings.

Teddy’s condition causes him no pain, and the specialist said Teddy will lead a perfectly normal life - he only needs eye drops a few times a week to keep the pressure in his eyes under control.

There is no consensus on Teddy’s age. According to one veterinarian, based on Teddy’s health and teeth, he could be as young as one or two years old. However, his eye specialist feels that with the retinal degeneration, he must be at least six years old. So, we will never know his exact age, as is the case with most of the furbabies that CSAC rescues.

One thing we do know with certainty is whomever adopts this sweet boy will be very lucky indeed to have such a wonderful life long buddy.

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.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Teddy 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.
