Teddy 2 in MD's Info...
I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, and up to date with shots.
Teddy was adopted, but returned to CSAC through no fault of his own. Turns out a family member was allergic to him. The following information was provided by Teddy’s former owner:
Teddy loves fetch - he can run faster than most other dogs in the park, the farther you can throw, the better! Big open fields are his favorite thing. But when we are out in a field, he will usually come running when called. Give him a few days to trust you, especially when petting him hear his belly, but once he trusts you, he will be attached to you at the hip.
Teddy is very obedient, he stays when he’s told, when we hush him, he will stop. He knows sit, paw, down, go (with a pointing gesture). He is not a beggar, in fact, he’s not highly food motivated. He loves getting groomed, even for baths, he will jump in the tub when I tell him to.
Some men can be scary at first, especially with touching/petting, but once he warms up and trusts you in a week or two, he’s your new best friend! He is a lap dog, he loves to be near you always. He doesn’t bark much, but he is more of a crier/howler when he’s sad (ie, when you’re in another room without him) or when he’s trying to wake you up to get up in the morning.
He is very friendly around other dogs, only a couple incidents where he told another dog "where to go", when they crept up to take his ball. He has no food aggression, he waits obediently if you tell him to while you get his meal ready. It is not known if he is okay with cats or children, but he’s a rambunctious pup so very small children would not be ideal. He loves to chase birds and squirrels, we have a chase toy for him to release his chase instincts.
He is fully housetrained, but "goes #2" almost every time he’s outside (4 times a day or more). Nothing much bothers him ie: loud noises, vacuums, storms, grooming shears, nail clipping time etc. He needs a slow eat bowl, which helps a lot with his fast eating, and that prevents any flatulence completely. He is currently on Natural Balance food which is working well for him.
Teddy is currently on flea and tick medication given the 24th of each month, and heartworm preventative which is given on the 10th of each month. His slow eat food bowl, furminator, and zoomgroom will be donated to Teddy’s new home and owner.

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.
