Oldies But Goodies Cocker Rescue


Baby | Male | Adopted

PUPPY ALERT!!!  Meet Sidney - one of the newest members of the OBG family.  Sidney arrived here on May 12, so we are still getting to know him.  He is an 8 week old purebred cocker spaniel with a long tail who came from NC with his two sisters and mother.  

Sidney is a very sweet little puppy.  He loves exploring the yard and playing with toys.  However, his favorite activity is probably snuggling with a human.  Sidney has started working on his house-training skills, though at this point that just means that he is taken outside every hour or so, after waking up from naps, and after playing.  If he does his business, he receives a little treat and lots of kisses.  

Before applying for a puppy, please carefully consider the following issues.  Will someone be home every 2-3 hours to let the puppy outside?  Our general rule of thumb is that if a dog needs to be crated more than 6 hours/day total, then that dog is the wrong one for the person's lifestyle.  Please consider Puppy Kindergarten classes - it is never too early to start training.  More dogs under the age of 3 years are euthanized for behavior issues than for illnesses.  Puppies (and dogs) are expensive.  It can cost over $1500 a year to care for a dog (vet check-ups, shots, spay/neuter, heartworm/flea tick preventatives, food, and other supplies).  Lastly, please consider your summer travel plans before applying for a puppy.  We do not adopt puppies more than 1-2 hours outside of the Washington DC area (we will adopt to Richmond and Baltimore).
