Juke is a 10 year old male English Cocker Spaniel. He has come into rescue due to being less tolerant with handling when not on his terms; his age plays a part in this as generally when dogs are older they do not want to be pulled around as much. He has nipped on two occasions. The first when he was led by the collar to go outside and the second when he was picked up unexpectedly. Both within this year but nothing previously and his owners were not happy to continue with it.
Juke has been absolutely perfect whilst under the care of Pupcakes and has been living with our kennel manager Ari and her dogs and cats. He has shown zero aggression in any circumstances and seems very keen to please and do what you ask him too.
Juke is not a frail old man by any stretch of the imagination. This boy still has tons of energy, can be very cheeky and is in great health. He loves walking and is very active. His previous owners said he wanted to be out running every day but they were only able to provide short walks every other day.
Juke is agile, he can jump onto a dining room table from a standstill and is an avid bin diver and food thief. His previous owner said he liked to be outside a lot so maybe hasn’t been in a home a lot whilst people have been preparing food. He does listen when told no but if you do not watch him he can be very cheeky and steal your toast. A dog proof bin is essential for this guy as he is a complete foodie and will do absolutely anything for a meal.
Despite this naughtiness, he does settle down really nicely in the evening and sleeps calmly in his bed. He loves to sit on your lap and cuddle on the sofa. He just seems happy to be around you, even if he’s just sitting on your feet. He is an incredibly loyal dog who would adore a person to love. He has not had any accidents in the home and is happy to go out when asked but does require a bit of a firmer tone when it’s raining.
Juke has been great with all of the dogs and cats in residence here. No jealously or problems at all. He could live with others or as a solo dog quite happily. Juke travels well in the car, is non destructive in the home and has a really wonderful nature.
Juke would be ideal for an older retired person who was still active and wanted to get out there. He’s an idea walking companion and has years left in him, in many ways he’s a puppy herself. He just comes in a package that’s already perfect. Juke is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. He will be Flea and worm treated and leave with a lead, collar and harness.
