My Story

Date into rescue: 6/16/2017

Reason for being in rescue? Pulled from a SC shelter, found as a stray.

Special Needs?  She needs grain free unique protein food. Dolly has struggled with chronic ear infections (common to her breed). She very recently had surgery to try to prevent future infections. She isn't a fan of getting ear drops, but then, who is? We are hoping that the surgery will help prevent continued infections.

What kind of home would be best for me? Dolly's personality is very laid back--except for the initial anxiety around meeting someone new. Otherwise, she is a go-with-the-flow kind of girl. She is hoping for a home with someone who would like to cuddle with her. Her dream would be to sleep next to her person or people, secure in their presence. Her soulful, sweet eyes would be such a comfort to come home to. She will bring a lot of joy to her future home.

What is my personality like?    Dolly is the most gentle cocker spaniel that anyone at the farm has ever met. About 10 years old, Dolly was found as a stray, so we don't know much about her history. She has been at the farm since June.

How do I act when I meet new people? When she first meets someone new, she is a bit nervous but she quickly warms up.

Tips and Tidbits: Her favorite snack is Pupperoni and she is motivated by and won over by these treats.‚Äč

House trained?   Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained.  A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours.  We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule.

Potential Adopters

Please note - we do not ship or transport our dogs. If you are interested in adopting a dog, take a look at the distance between the dog's location and your location and make sure you are able to make the trip.

Thank you for your interest in a dog who needs a new home. This description contains all that we currently know about this dog. We have no perfect dogs - but many of our dogs have proven to be perfect for a certain someone. We urge all of our potential adopters not to fall in love with a picture. When screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, age, temperament, personality, etc. Our goal is to match you with the best possible pet for you and your home. We want to create furever families.

Thank you for considering CPR!
