    When I was picking Max up from the Walton County Animal Shelter on Monday a man was surrendering a gorgeous young cocker. It is about a year and a half old, medium size blonde/beige....gorgeous and so sweet. It may not post for adoption for another few days but is available according to Jennifer (Tuesday it was still available). Please, someone help this sweet dog!!

    Don't understand people surrendering their pets they have probably had from a puppy. And that dog probably wonders why his owner left him there never to return. This makes me so mad. Shouldn't get a dog if they don't plan on taking care of them until they get old and pass away. Got to quit looking at this stuff. Hope someone takes him. Don't know how the adoption rate is at that shelter but I hope it is good. Poor dog. :sosad:

    How sad, for this baby!

    I grew up with a buff colored Cocker, named Buffy! She was such a sweet, loyal and loving family member!:wub: This little lost soul must be so terrified, where she is! Please, someone save this adorable, baby!:sosad:

    I was very impressed with the shelter when I picked Max up. The people I met, Martha the manager, Jennifer and the technician were obviously compassionate, loving animal people. They DO work with several rescue groups from what I understand. They do all they can to place all animals left with them. Yes, there are some horrible people who should never adopt in the first place. When I think that we are the fourth home for Max in as many months, I get very angry. People are just plain lazy and apparently offer any excuse to surrender a "family member". Please, someone help this beautiful full blooded cocker find the right home. Obviously, the people who got him as a pup, never committed and gave up at the first opportunity. The man had a lame excuse---"he snapped my wife while she was grooming him!" Duh!! Newsflash----dogs bite!!! Do you think humans ever cause the bite??? I do??? By doing stupid....uuuuuuggggggghhhhh! Max is great! Adopt the cocker!!!

    Cocker

    Hi Jackie,

    I've been working last five days and haven't been able to work on this, like I want! I'm off next few days, though I'm going to Pensacola tomorrow, for the day. I'll do what I can by phone, meanwhile! Have you spoken with the shelter, lately? I'm concerned about the 10 day period, before putting an animal down! Please, call me!

    Come on people, help this cocker spaniel out. It needs a good home. I am sure there is someone out there that can give this dog the home it deserves.

    Good news bad news!

    I rec'd this message from Jackie, tonight:sosad:!

    Caleb the cocker is in foster care in Miramar Beach for the week with a groomer and that he is still available for adoption. And, that if he is not adopted next week, he will be moved to a rescue facility in Pensacola.???? I wonder if you talked to them before or after I did. the lady said he is a sweetie and they are hoping to adopt him, not put him in the rescue.
