>>> HERBIE is: Sweet, affectionate, loves petting, is good with people & dogs,  enjoys chasing balls, loves playing fetch & tug of war >> PLEASE VISIT www.CampCocker.com/herbie FOR THE LATEST UPDATES on HERBIE! > Stay up to date with the latest details on *ALL* Camp Cocker Rescue dogs at www.campcocker.com * Herbie is being fostered in the Sacramento area * WELCOME TO CAMP COCKER RESCUE HERBIE! HERBIE is a male Cocker Spaniel Freedom Flyer from South Korea. He was rescued in South Korea by Korean K9 Rescue, and flown to America to start his new life here! Herbie is a sweet, friendly, easy-going boy who's always wagging his tail! He is estimated* to be about 8-10 years old and currently weighs about 26 pounds. >> UPDATES - His Foster Parents Have This to Share About Herbie: - He enjoys his walks most of the time but not when it is raining or very cold. So it was a challenge during the storms to get him on a walk. - He is a total foodie. He finishes his food in 30 seconds or less. But he’s good about giving his foster sister Zoey her space and does not try to eat her food. (We did find that when we would give them chewy type treats that last a while for chewing that he would steal Zoey’s and would growl when you tried to get it back. That is the only time he has growled. We stopped giving those treats, to discourage that behavior.) Because he is such a foodie he is at your feet when we are cooking in the kitchen. - He’s not thrilled with getting brushed so it’s much easier when we doing as a team, Danny holding and petting him and me brushing. But the groomer says he is very good for them and he is also very good with the vet. He is also getting used to the liquid supplements and it’s getting easier to give him those. - The great news is that he is pretty much 100% house trained!! He uses the doggie door on his own when we are here and when we are gone. Even when we have to close the doggie door all day (like if the bug guy is coming), we put a belly band on him but he doesn’t go in it, he holds it. - He does love chasing his ball and also likes to fetch toys and play tug with them. He is also OK to just relax and chill and will tap you with his paw to get some pets. - He is good with people. He barks when they first come in the house but he is taking that cue from Zoey because she barks a lot. Once he gets attention from that person he is friendly. He’s been good with the neighbor kids as well. >> MEDICAL UPDATES - APRIL, 2023: >>> After weeks of pre-testing by the ophthalmologist, to confirm that he was a suitable candidate for cataract surgery, Herbie finally had bilateral cataract surgery in January 2023.  In February, his left eye tested with elevated eye pressures and acute glaucoma.  In March, after attempts to control the pressures with medication were unsuccessful, the ophthalmologist performed a CBA (ciliary body ablation) in Herbie’s left eye. A CBA is an injection into his eyeball that kills the nerves, eliminating the pressure.  As a result of the CBA, the eye becomes non-visual. Herbie is currently getting daily eyedrops in both eyes, and will need to be seen periodically by an opthalmologist to monitor and maintain his eye health. >>> During Herbie's eye surgery, some heart rhythm anomalies were observed. He’s since been seen by a cardiologist who diagnosed him with CVD Stage 1B (heart disease that is characterized by a heart murmur - but radiography/echocardiography does not show an enlarged heart, nor any clinical signs of the disease). He was also diagnosed with sinus/AV node dysfunction - also without any clinical signs. Since Herbie is currently asymptomatic for both conditions, no medications have been prescribed. He will need to be periodically seen by a cardiologist to monitor his condition. >> FIRST IMPRESSIONS FROM HERBIE'S FOSTER PARENTS: - Herbie is a very sweet boy, comes to us frequently for petting, and enjoys chasing balls. - We recently had a small dinner party for 12, and he was great with all our guests. Didn’t get at all nervous with having lots of people around. - We have left him in the house not kenneled for 2 hours at a time. We have cameras and he just lays near the front door. He doesn’t whine or bark so really no separation anxiety at all. - It looks like Herbie has cataracts in both eyes - with the right being worse than the left. He has an ophthalmology consult scheduled, and has been approved for cataract surgery. *Please note that any age provided is only an estimate, based on veterinary examination of teeth, eyes, coat, etc. Herbie is being fostered in the Sacramento area.

Meet Hershey >>> HERSHEY is: Affectionate, playful, smart, brave, curious, eager to please, leash-trained, house-trained, loves toys, a lap pet & snuggle-bug, loves kisses (we call them Hershey's kisses!) >> PLEASE VISIT www.CampCocker.com/hershey for UPDATES, and MANY MORE PHOTOS & VIDEOS of Hershey! > Stay up to date with the latest details on *ALL* Camp Cocker Rescue dogs at www.campcocker.com - and on our social media. HERSHEY IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION! Since the day of his rescue, Hershey’s story has been shared on Facebook and other social media, where he already has so many loving fans following him! Thank you Hershey fans!  Hershey is an absolutely gorgeous chocolate Cocker Spaniel! He’s estimated to be about 5-6 years old and weighs 20 pounds. Check out those eyes!   He was rescued from the North Central Shelter in a state of rear paralysis - unable to use his rear legs, or to urinate or defecate on his own. He was immediately taken to veterinary specialists where he received an MRI and back surgery, followed by an incredible extended program of multi-disciplinary post-op physical therapy! Hershey’s recovery has been remarkable! He is now able to enjoy outdoor walks and runs. And he's house-trained too!  Hershey is a true “you can do hard things” hero! He is an amazing, very special dog, with a charming personality & dreamy eyes! He’s affectionate, smart, brave & playful - which makes him a great companion!   >>>> IN ORDER TO SET UP HERSHEY TO THRIVE, STAY HEALTHY, AND BE THE BEST COMPANION EVER, HE WILL HAVE SOME SPECIAL NEEDS TO BE MET BY HIS FUTURE ADOPTERS: - Hershey will always have IVDD (Intervertebral Disc Disease) and will always be prone to re-injury. This will require an environment that will help to prevent activities that could lead to re-injury. - It will never be safe for Hershey to have access to stairways, or to furniture or beds that he can jump on or off. - Though he might enjoy the company of another dog, it's important that he not be subject to jumping, wrestling, and engaging in active play with other dogs. - Since he’s not a fan of loud or unexpected noises, Hershey should be in a quiet home with no children, and probably no cats.  - Hershey's ideal home will be a house with a yard, in a neighborhood that’s not excessively noisy. >>>> Before submitting your application, IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT YOU VISIT HIS WEB PAGE, AND READ HIS *ENTIRE* bio to LEARN ABOUT HERSHEY'S NEEDS - AND HOW CAMP COCKER CAN HELP! Hershey's web page can be found at www.campcocker.com/hershey - After reviewing Hershey's web page, learn more about our adoption process at www.campcocker.com/adoptionprocess  Hershey is being fostered in Southern California.

Story
Guillermo is the sweetest pup. I adopted him from a humane society when he was almost three months old. He tends to match my vibe. If I'm energetic and playing, he's pumped! If I'm being cozy and having a lazy day, he's ready to cuddle and nap. He has sensitive skin so he needs extra care. His top allergy is grass so if we have a day at the park, he needs proper grooming. The best home for him would be somewhere without a lot of grass and with someone who can properly groom him once or twice a week. Since he has been with me, he has not experienced any big traumas or anything so he is so well behaved. He hasn't been around a lot of children, but he is not malicious in general. He tends to bark when someone new comes over, but after they say hi and pet him or throws one of his toys, he is a lovey buddy. He is four years old. I am unfortunately unable to keep up with his grooming and allergy meds (apoquel once a day) and so I am looking for a loving home that can.
