River is a 5 year old female English Cocker Spaniel being fostered in Devon. Come into our care due to illness and owner no longer able to look after her. River is slowly settling down in our care, she has been very quiet and nervous but each day has brought a lot more confidence, she has not been on walks for years but is now enjoying these and that little tail is starting to get the Spaniel wagg. She is fine with the other dogs but prefers the older gentle one than the young ones – she is now off the lead on her walks – her foster mum has been grooming her as her feet were in a bit of a mess and she was very good at letting her do this – we will give her a bit longer and then arrange for her to be groomed properly. She is now off the leads on her walks and really enjoying it and hopefully this will help her waist line – River is a very gentle, quite girl – she can be nervous out if lots of people and cars around as has not been used to it – she loves her foster family and has really bonded with her foster mum.
River is going to need a quiet gentle home like her – she could live with another dog as long as its like her older and gentle she would not cope with young bouncy dogs nor would she suit a busy town or lots of different people in her life as she is not very confident. She has a beautiful temperament, is gentle and kind – we will continue to work with her and update her story.
River will be fully vaccinated, spayed, chipped, fleaed and wormed before she leaves us – please email us for our questionnaire if she is starting to sound like a good match for you.
