5/17/13: Hannah is a sweet little girl. She is small for a cocker, only 16 pounds at 9 years old! She is housebroken, good with people, and has been good with dogs. She has not met a cat here, but we have a bird and she does not seem to notice him.
She is very newly fully blind...she had her first eye removed some time ago, and just had the second removed. She was already a shy quiet personality and is now adjusting to her newly dark world....she likely would do best in an adult household, without young children and without very active dogs. She can become concerned if there is a lot of activity and retreats to her bed, and might shake a bit until she realizes all is well. She is also learning how to map space and can get turned around in a room until she follows your voice to the right area, so a lot of activity might be upsetting.
Hannah loves petting and will lay quite still to get more, sometimes just creeping up against your side to encourage you to continue. She is not at all pushy about affection, very low key.
She needs some help to jump start her appetite when she arrives in a new place, but then starts to eat better.
If you are looking for a sweet quiet girl, and have a quiet home to offer....consider Hannah!
