Rocky is a 1 year old male English Cocker Spaniel. Beautiful boy Rocky has not had the best start to his short life so far, he was rescued from a home where it was alleged that he was being beaten. He has been in his new home for just 2 short weeks but sadly he has started to display resource guarding behaviour and as there are young children in the home the family feel it would be best to find Rocky a new home. Despite everything he has been through Rocky is a loving and affectionate dog. He mixes well with other dogs and may be able to share his home with a compatible dog providing that steps are taken to prevent any fighting over food/toys.
Rocky will need a very experienced adult only home, free from young children and without any children planned for the future. We are ideally looking for a home for Rocky with previous Spaniel and (or) resource guarding experience. Our behaviourist will also be on board to assist with this, however it is absolutely vital that Rocky finds some stability in a home with an owner prepared to put in the behavioural work needed to help him settle. This poor boy has already endured so much and desperate deserves a second chance.
Due to his young age Rocky will need a home with someone around for most/all of the day. He does suffer from travel sickness so a home where he isn’t required to travel long distances would suit him best.
