Cocker Spaniel of the Month: September 2006

Breed Cocker Spaniel
Sex female
Age 5 years
Location New York (US)

Lucy (a beautiful champagne colored female cocker spaniel) was found on 104th and Park in New York, New York in December of 2006. She couldn't walk and had bruises and abrasions all over her body. She was sent to the Brooklyn Animal Shelter where she quickly developed kennel cough and was put on the euthanasia list! Luckily, she was rescued by an amazing woman in Queens, New York who runs a cocker spaniel shelter. This amazing woman got her spayed, all her shots and all the medicine she needs. I had been looking for a dog at the animal shelters when I cam across Lucy's picture on the Brooklyn Animal Shelter's website . . . it was love at first site and I just knew she was the dog for me! Lucy is not the easiest dog since she is already 5 years old and has a rough history. We fondly refer to her as a "product of the system" and she has the associated problems! When Lucy first came to live with me she barked at every single person she saw, and attempted to attack most of them as well . . . not to mention the frenzy she goes into when she sees other animals. But in the last 4 months she has completely turned around . . . she can walk nicely on a leash, she is pleasant to people and she is so loving and adorable! You should see her when she's sleeping with her tongue out! Adopting Lucy has changed my life. Even though we still have some work to do, she is the brightest spot of joy in my life and I can't wait to get home from work every day (when she can run circles around my feet)!
