Cocker Spaniel Rescue of the Month: July 2006

Breed Cocker Spaniel
Sex female
Age 11 months
Location Alberta (CA)

We are so lucky to have found Gracie at the SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals), in Lloydminster, Alberta, Canada. Since we adopted Gracie, we are unsure of her breed background, but anyone can tell by her face that she is definitely part cocker spaniel. When she was rescued by the SPCA she had ran away from her owner/breeder, and suffered from pneumonia brought on by a cool rainy summer. When her owner refused to pay the veterinary bills accrued by the non-profit organization, they put her up for adoption. Not knowing it was my fiancé's plan to buy me a black cocker spaniel to use as part of his engagement proposal, I insisted that we rescue this "pound dog" who melted our hearts. Three days after we adopted her, the SPCA was sadly shut down due to the fatal parvovirus. We found her just in time and nursed her to be the fun-loving dog she is today. At 11 months old, she already shows the great hunting skills of a cocker as she keeps her nose to the ground sniffing out every different scent.
