We are now ready to rehome a dog 3 years after losing Benji.
My husband is keen to rehome a cocker spaniel i think Benji left a lasting impression on him...me too.
We dont mind the sex or age within reason of not being a small puppy or say over 10.(we would like some good time with him/her).
But the musts are must be child and cat friendly.I have a 16 year old cat used to dogs and visiitng grandsons aged 2 and a half to 8 years.
We live very rurally but in a terrace so hopefully no serial howlers!(Benji did have the habit of howling sometimes in the middle of the night bless him and when he was left but he soon settled down).
We could travel up to an hour and a half.
We can give lovely walks but we are not too energetic at times which may suit a more laid back cocker.
If i have missed anything out just ask and i will be honest as i would like the match to be permanent obviously.
Thanks in advance. smile.gif

I have been looking for you but haven't found a cocker spaniel as yet. Is it just a cocker spaniel you are interested in or would you consider a springer or other breeds?

Many tears have cockers:-

Just checked and the couple I was thinking of have been reserved. Worth keeping an eye on them though as they may have more come in soon.

Hi i would consider a cocker cross or a cavalier/cavalier cross.springers are just too energetic for us.my brother in law has 2 springers and they seem to have the edge on cockers for energy!i,m hoping for a dog that is older but not too old say 3 upwards.
many tears nearly always want a resident dog and i dont have another dog.i have been looking to see if they have one fostered near us as they often use fosterers local to me.
thanks for replies smile.gif
