Baby (aka Ms. Freedom in this picture) is an older Cocker Spaniel girl that needs a new home and ready to give you her love and affection.
Her owner was helping a friend by temporarily caring for Baby, but the friend never came back for Baby due to relocation. She has had Baby for about 6 years. Baby’s current owner has two jobs and has to travel a lot for work. She also has health issues, and she is unable to care for Baby. She is very much hoping we will have a place for Baby.
This Cocker Spaniel is an indoor dog with run of the house, she is housebroken and leash trained. She knows the commands, Sit, Stay, and Come, and she also responds to Spanish! Baby is good with both men and women, and cats. She is not possessive of toys, treats, or food and has never bitten or snapped.
Baby’s owner doesn’t have other dogs, but said that when she’s walking Baby and other dogs come up to her to smell her, Baby is calm, but after a little while, may growl a bit. She believes that this is because they are strange dogs and Baby can’t see their signals.
She also stayed at a friend’s house for a few days. Baby was fine with the friend’s male and female dog, but the friend’s female dog did not like Baby. Her owner writes that Baby may bark a lot when someone comes into the house because she wants them to know that she is there! Her owner says that other than her eye problem, Baby has been a healthy dog.
The previous owner gave us more details about this Cocker Spaniel‘s eye condition: “She is well now. She had an onset of glaucoma and it was so quick, that even with all kinds of medications for over a month and a half, her eyes were not getting better. She was treated to remove the eye pressure, but would not keep her eyesight. I feel that she can see light and dark, but she is blind and I keep her on a leash when outside and just keep her close when needed and let her run with me and she acts just as normal and LOVES going out for walks!! :)”
Her owner wants us to know that Baby is a great dog!!! “I have been PRAYING to find only the BEST PLACE for a lovely lady. She deserves that and more. She is calmed down a lot. She needs more TLC than she is receiving now because of TIME. She will only make a family very, very happy and proud to have her as an addition to their family.”
We’re hoping Baby can have a second chance with a new family! “She deserves a second chance at life, this time as a blind dog.”She wants us to know that all Baby wants is to be loved on!
