Story
We bought Quinn as an 8 week old puppy from an AKC Bichon Frise breeder, and have had her ever since. She has a six generation AKC registered Bichon Frise with champions in her pedigree. She is a happy, healthy dog, who gets along well with our other dogs. She loves to snuggle and to go for walks and car rides. Quinn really deserves to be an only dog in a loving home, and we hope to find Quinn one here. We have three grown and flown children, so Quinn has no experience with children, and we would not recommend her being adopted by a family with children. She would make a fine distinguished pedigree pet in a loving adult home. Please consider giving Quinn her Forever Home.

If you are interested in adopting or fostering this dog. Please visit our website - www.cockeradoptions.org   There, you will find the current status of the dog, the links to our adoption and foster applications, and detailed information about our adopting and fostering procedures.   MY ORIGINAL INTAKE INFORMATION: Hi Everyone! My name is Ellie, and I just arrived at CSAC. I was rescued from a puppy mill. I am sweet, give kisses and enjoy attention. I have spent my life in a barn, a shed or a cage. The best home for me has people who have dog experience who can help with my training and acclimating to the outside world. The people in my new home should be able to teach me the skills I need to be a great pet: walking on a lead, house training, and socializing. Right now, I am in the caring hands of one of the great Vets that work with CSAC. They are checking me out and making sure I am healthy. Hopefully, I will find my new family that will help me to understand that I am a cherished family pet, not just an animal to be used to make money For more information about this dog, email our Adoption Coordinator. Our adoption process starts with an application. If you are interested in adopting this pup, please click the Adopt menu at the top of the screen, read about our process, and click the application link. The medical and custodial care of the many Cockers in our care is tremendous. More and more dogs are abandoned with urgent and serious medical issues. We are committed to providing the best possible care for these forgotten friends. Unfortunately, the mounting high costs are beginning to limit the number of dogs we are able to take into our program. Even if you cannot adopt or foster one of our current adoptable dogs, please consider making a donation. The Cocker Spaniel Adoption Center is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization, and your donations are entirely tax deductible. Click the Donate menu at the top of the screen.

Story
Jonquil is named after a beautiful daffodil, this cutie is super sweet and loves attention. He is smart and a complete homebody. Jonquil does have a nervous condition that prevents him from going on long walks or any outside activity really. He’s sensitive to noise at times and will need a bit of extra TLC during these times. He loves to play fetch and tug of war indoors only. He knows basic commands such as stop, down sit and stay. Jonquil came be a bit dramatic at times but he’s not a barker, I’ve only heard him bark 4 times in 6 months, each time was associated with anxiety. Due to his need for attention and home body nature, I find it difficult to meet his needs as a single person household. Jonquil would thrive in a 2 person, or more, household where he could receive all the attention he needs!

DISCLOSURE: The adoptable pets in our program are still in the care and custody of owners who wish to re-home their pet. Owners have enlisted Rescue Well to provide marketing and screening of applicants as a service, free of charge. All fees and adoption conditions are determined by the owner. We advise that adopters do not send payment or deposits for pets prior to adopting.  ***** Holly is 7mo old, weighs 7.5lbs, is up to date on her vaccines, is intact, and is not microchipped.  Holly's guardian adds:  "Holly is a very sweet, social, and loving girl.  She has so, so much love to give.  She is playful but equal parts relaxed.  She is so well behaved and obedient.  She loves to play with other small puppies her size.  She loves to run around and explore outdoors.  She enjoys a good stick or chew.  It takes a bit of time and patience to earn her trust but it is well worth it.  She will snuggle up and cuddle with you so much.  We use clicker training.  Basic commands and vocabulary:  sit, stay, 'go in your den', down, off, potty, dinner, water, fetch, treat.  Holly will benefit from individual attention.  She is an obedient puppy and rarely gets into trouble.  I highly recommend continuing clicker training.  She requires positive reinforcement, she gets scared if you scream at her or raise your voice.  She is very gentle.  Fear of toddlers and children.  She is nervous and shy when meeting new people.  SHE WILL RUN AWAY if you force her in an uncomfortable situation!!!!" Holly's guardian explains why she has made the decision to rehome her:  "Holly is part of an oops litter.  Her parents are our family pets." Holly's guardian offers a brief medical history: "Pups have had recurring bouts of Giardia.  We live in the city and it's been going around our neighborhood.  They have consistently been treated.  Their last stool test was as recent as a week ago.  We stay in consistent contact with their vet. Holly was itchy for and had a bout of small patches of missing hair.  She was licking her paws.  We think that she had just become sensitive to the Royal Canin puppy food.  She has done just fine since we switched to the Purina Pro Plan Sensitive Skin and Stomach Salmon and Rice flavored food." Holly's guardian states the following regarding children:   Holly hasn't lived with children, so her guardian doesn't recommend her living with children, stating "Holly is very fearful of children.  Sadly, she has had bad experiences with kids when potential adopters first started visiting us". Holly's guardian states the following regarding dogs:   Holly lives with dogs, so her guardian recommends her living with dogs, stating:   "She will do great in a home with other small dogs.  She is very social.  She is working on her confidence in meeting (large) dogs outdoors.  She tends to take the lead of other dogs with her (i.e. her siblings or doggy friend) when approaching new dogs or situations." Holly's guardian states the following regarding cats:  Holly hasn't lived with cats, so her guardian is unsure how she would react to cats in a household, stating "She's been indifferent to outside stray cats.  She hasn't been formally introduced to a cat but I don't have any reason to say that she won't do okay". Holly's guardian describes her as: Playful Shy Likes to be touched Affectionate Fearful Independent Nervous Crate-Trained Holly's guardian describes her ideal future home:  "Holly needs experienced owners that are sensitive to her needs and will be patient and understanding with her.  She will be great in a house with a small dog of similar(ish) age so she can borrow from their confidence.  Would also be great with siblings Knox and Belle.  A couple or family that can help her grow into a confident puppy would adore her."

We advise that adopters do not send payment or deposits for pets prior to adopting.  ***** Belle is 7mo old, weighs 8lbs, is up to date on her vaccines, is intact, and is not microchipped.  Belle's guardian adds:  "She's interactive, cuddly, and engaging.  I can't emphasize how much loves to play with her toys (even by herself), run around, chase, fetch and wrestle around with her siblings.  She's so funny and entertaining to watch.  She's very loving and will take a nap right in your lap.  She is a very happy and will really make a lucky family very happy!  [She fears/dislikes] toddlers, and nervousness and shyness + shyness in meeting new people.  HATES being picked up by people she doesn't trust !!!!" Belle's guardian explains why she has made the decision to rehome her:  "Belle is part of an oops litter.  Her parents are our family pets."  Belle's guardian offers a brief medical history: "Pups have had recurring bouts of Giardia.  We live in the city and it's been going around our neighborhood.  They have consistently been treated.  Their last stool test was as recent as a week ago.  We stay in consistent contact with their vet." Belle's guardian states the following regarding children:  Belle hasn't lived with children, but her guardian recommends her living with children, stating: "ONLY older children (14+).  Sadly, when we first started having house visits with potential adopters, a family came by with two toddlers who TERRIFIED Belle by chasing her and trying to forcefully pick her up.  She has been scared and nervous of young kids since.  She doesn't seek interaction with kids, per se but is fine with older kids at friends' houses." Belle's guardian states the following regarding dogs:  Belle lives with dogs so her guardian recommends her living with dogs, stating: "Belle is very dog social!  She loves to play with other dogs and run around.  She's never been to a dog park so I can't speak to that but she loves all her doggy friends and is always playing with her siblings." Belle's guardian states the following regarding cats:  Belle hasn't lived with cats, so her guardian is unsure how she would react to cats in a household, stating:  "She's observed stray cats and has been indifferent to them.  Never formally met a cat.  Can't say how she would react to being introduced to a cat but no reason to think she would react badly." Belle's guardian describes her as: Playful Shy Likes to be touched Affectionate Fearful Crate-Trained Belle's guardian describes her ideal future home: Belle would love a social home that has time to spend with her and really wants to dedicate attention to her as their companion.  She'd do amazing with a small dog as her companion.  She will enjoy a FENCED yard, as she loves running in circles outdoors.   An experienced and patient owner is preferred that would even commit to training classes if needed to help her get over her fears so that she can grow into the confident dog she really is.  Perfect for a house or couple where one member stays at home or works from home.  She is a very happy dog and really will make a lucky family very happy!
