“I'm gonna be a mighty king
So enemies beware!
Well, I've never seen a king of beasts
With quite so little hair
I'm gonna be the mane event
Like no king was before
I'm brushing up on looking down
I'm working on my ROAR”
Oh, am I not auditioning for the role of young Simba for The Lion King?
No, sir, you are not here for an audition.
Oh, gosh, how embarrassing. So, what am I here for?
I am here to interview you for your biography for your adoption profile for Gulf Coast Cocker Spaniel Rescue.
Well, you are in luck! I am think I am a perfect candidate to be adopted into a new family. Not to brag, but my foster mom speaks so highly of me. I am a red Cocker Spaniel with an estimated birthdate of February 2014. I landed myself in doggie jail at a local Fort Bend County animal shelter, but with the luck of the Irish, my foster mom had an open spot in her home, so off we drove into the sunset to her home. I have settled quite nicely into my foster family with 4 other dogs (Cocker Spaniels and a Beagle) and cats. I am a very easy going boy who seems to get along with everybody. I am the youngin’ of the group, so I have quite a lot to learn. I am still learning to greet other dogs properly- nothing negative… I just get overexcited and eager to say hello. I am learning that isn’t the proper way to say hi to fellow dogs, but I do well with corrections and take cues from the other dogs rather well.
My foster mom often praises me how smart I am. She says I have such great potential! I quickly picked on the commands sit and down. I’ve even learned to sit nicely when it is time to go for our walks. My greeting manners is a work in progress, so stay tuned for my progress report. Also, a little tidbit I need to mention, I am marking in the house, but my foster mom reports she has seen positive progress as I settled into a schedule with walks and time outside. She also tells me that she thinks I'll continue to do better with this since I was recently neutered, and promises to update everyone on my progress.
I love my daily adventures with my foster family. I’m a curious and goofy boy, and I would love a family who is active who will take on me hikes or jogs. In the short time, I have been with my foster mom I have also learned what toys are all about. Man, the squeaky ones are the best! I still have loads to learn, but I am not wasting any time. I am soaking up all the lessons and love while I can.
I am heartworm positive, so I will be starting treatment after being evaluated by our trusted vet. I am neutered and up to date on my shots. Come shoot me an e-mail if you are looking for a buddy to share adventures and fun with.
