Barney is a 18 month old male English Cocker Spaniel. Right our Barney boy has now been rehomed twice and come back twice. He has been to 2 different fosters neither of which have had even a hint of trouble and both would keep him if they could. So things you need to know about this boy. He is not a furbaby. He does things when he wants to not when you do. You will not change him. He does not have “cocker rage”. He does not want to sleep on your bed and he may not want to join you on your sofa of an evening.
If you push him too soon you will know about it via a growl and if you continue he will bite. Our best piece of advice to you in the first few weeks will be to LEAVE HIM ALONE – he doesnt need a goodnight hug nor want one. If he is in the kitchen and you are in another room, that is his choice. If he is in his crate or bed he doesn’t want you to tempt him out with food for no other reason than you can. We really have had no issues with this boy because we allow him to be as he is. He is a dog that very much needs to trust you for you to see all the good in him. He is not bad! He is strong willed and intelligent and funny and loving (when he wants to be) He is currently in foster in a livery and he loves it! He needs an outdoors type home and will happily then spend his evenings tired out sleeping. He needs stimulation and his brain to be used. Here is his foster write up.
Barney is an amazing little chap who loves to run and play with other dogs. He does have separation anxiety but ok when left with another dog. He enjoys long walks, cuddles and ball games although he can be a little hard of hearing on ball recall. Barney is a very hyper boy who would suit an active home where he can keep his mind stimulated. He needs to be homed with older children 12 plus due to his bouncy excitable nature. Barney still needs some training especially with recall and stealing his humans items and dropping them where they can no longer be located! Truly a beautiful young energetic cocker who just needs to burn off his energy and be a proper Spaniel.
